This is mine:

@echo off

goto SCROLLR

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.

hey when i try to change the file type it dosn't work
zombiefire says: Apr 4, 2010. 7:03 AM
i cant either
nova says: Apr 25, 2010. 12:45 PM
save it as your name here.bat don't forget the extension.
budsiskos says: Feb 2, 2008. 2:05 PM
when i click it it opens a window but then closes it almost instantly. help
MatrixEagle15 (author) says: Feb 2, 2008. 4:53 PM
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
budsiskos says: Feb 2, 2008. 11:10 PM
i did that but it still wont work. i even tried it on multiple computers
digitrunner says: Feb 22, 2010. 5:11 AM
make sure youre running it from within the cmd prompt window
MatrixEagle15 (author) says: Feb 4, 2008. 12:05 PM
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
budsiskos says: Feb 4, 2008. 1:23 PM
@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

can u change the speed on it mine is turbo? Thanks P.S. please answer me:-)
arhodes18 says: Mar 24, 2008. 6:52 PM
Ive been wondering the same thing...
stuffman366 says: Aug 21, 2008. 11:48 AM
no you cant change the speed to my knowledge because it randomly generates #'s
digitrunner says: Feb 22, 2010. 5:09 AM
insert a timer loop
puffyfluff says: Aug 21, 2008. 2:00 PM
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 .
NastySpill says: Feb 21, 2010. 2:53 PM

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"

I use his at school to make me look smart :3
REA says: Jun 20, 2008. 8:00 PM
what would be the code to run it in full screen?
crack_shot_556 says: Jul 26, 2009. 4:49 PM
the matrix only shows 1's and 0's which is computer code.
stuffman366 says: Aug 21, 2008. 11:46 AM
just hit alt+enter while its running
puffyfluff says: Aug 21, 2008. 2:10 PM
right click, create shortcut. Then, on the shortcut, right click, properties, Options tab, display options to full screen.
REA says: Aug 21, 2008. 6:02 PM
how would you make this on Vista. i think i heard the codes are different.
croutonicus says: May 16, 2009. 6:01 AM
batch files are the same
REA says: May 18, 2009. 1:18 PM
i found out that my computer doesnt allow CMD to be presented in full screen (damn you vista).
puffyfluff says: Aug 21, 2008. 9:12 PM
No, it's the same.
will421 says: May 29, 2009. 10:55 AM
Vista`s registry won`t let you (or else the system would crash).
taylornrolyat says: Feb 6, 2008. 2:36 PM
haha thats awesome, it works for me but i cant get the text color to be green eventhough the 2 is present, any solutions or ideas??? thanks
MatrixEagle15 (author) says: Feb 7, 2008. 6:57 PM
umm can you get the color to change at all?
Padlock says: Mar 1, 2008. 5:26 PM
change color2 to color0a
Padlock says: Mar 1, 2008. 5:27 PM
twenglish1 says: Apr 11, 2008. 9:25 AM
no just change it to color 2
croutonicus says: May 16, 2009. 6:01 AM
color 2 is not very matrixy 0a is better (neon)
twenglish1 says: May 16, 2009. 6:37 AM
i always used 0a i don't know why i said color 2
frodobot says: Jan 23, 2009. 1:30 PM
how do you get it to go off?
croutonicus says: May 16, 2009. 6:03 AM
I can easily be turned off by pressing ctrl + alt + delete End program/process CMD.exe
danopia says: Nov 20, 2008. 3:51 AM
I use Linux. This won't work for me, but look into xscreensaver's xmatrix. It is a recoding of the exact way the numbers are drawn in the matrix's monitors, then it traces a phone number using the numbers (which are drawn really fast) then goes to (after a system failure or it's done tracing) the classic symbols dropping down. It also randomly stops and does the "follow the white bunny" thing, and it awesome with two screens.
will421 says: May 5, 2009. 1:18 PM
I know how to do that! Just don`t leave running for too long or it crashes your programs. (I found out the hard way.):

`f=1while [ \$f=1 ]doecho \$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOM\$RANDOMdone`
