    The text is done manually...one by one, line by line. It is a very realistic render. I have a more advanced version which animates and at the same time will display suspended words...all in plain batch.

     save it as your name here.bat don't forget the extension.

    make sure you put the "goto start" at the end of your program look at my 2nd instructable for a more in depth of how it works

    you have to create it in notepad and then save it as a .bat file i tried it out at a library computer to see if it depends on the type of computer when i did this i hit save as and had to select the "all files option" and then save as matrix.bat if none of that works, then reply to this comment with exactly what you put into notepad

    @echo off color2 :start echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% goto start i did just as you said but it doesnt work and i dont know why? i tried typing directly to command prompt and it gave out a few random numbers

    Yes, there is a way. It puts a very small pause before the goto. The code is on my computer. Once I find it, I'll put it up .

    for the real newbies to bat file scripts - you forgot to add the hash marks in your script.
    "copy and paste what is between the hash marks"
     

    what would be the code to run it in full screen?
