Step 1: Its So Colorful

Matrix 5.bmp
Matrix 6.bmp
First type
'@ echo off'

Now you have to choose you color. their are many combinations. All things below are combinations.*Remember, first digit is background, second forground.*

0 = Black 8 = Gray
1 = Blue 9 = Light Blue
2 = Green a = Light Green
3 = Aqua b = Light Aqua
4 = Red c = Light Red
5 = Purple d = Light Purple
6 = Yellow e = Light Yellow
7 = White f = Bright White

Try mixing it up a little for cool color combos!

Step 2: W Wa Wak Wake

You have to type the letters in ,for lack of a better term, one at a time like in the pictures.

Step 3: Ping Pong

Next type
'ping localhost -n .5 >nul'
*This tells the computer to pause, I guess, for .5 seconds.*

Step 4: CLEAR ZAP!!!!

Next type
'cls'
*This clears the screen but don't worry, nothing will be lost. The next line will pop up before the one your viewing leaves.

Step 5: Wake Up Neo... The Matrix has you....

if you type "@echo off" on the very first line it won't be shown :)

nice guide, u could however make an exra text page where u can can just copy the complete code.
would make the guide even more easy
(i'm a bit to layzy to type all of this)

HELP!!! I'm trying to do this on a Mac OS X, but regardless of what I do, I can't get it to work. Pointers?
HardCoreHacker (author)  kovacs19853 years ago
Well, when it comes to Mac OS, the terminal commands are different from Command Prompt commands. These are Linux commands so you will have to find equivalent commands for Unix systems.

Is there any way possible i could keep the text showing, so when it has said 1 sentence, it keeps it there whilst the other one types... instead of the first sentence disappearing?
just dont put cls under each one
HardCoreHacker (author)  l33th4x5 years ago
sure, u have to retype everything in each line, adding one lettter every line of code
RedFlash4 years ago
You could do that. There is something similar you can do with variables: Here is an example: @echo off set message=Wake up Neo echo %message:~0,1% ping localhost -n 2 >nul echo %message:~0,2% ping localhost -n 2 >nul echo %message:~0,3% and so on...

Does anybody know how to make it FULLY FULL SCREEN? Like in the Matrix? With no taskbar and window and stuff?
Alt+Enter. You can preform this manually, or automatically [AutoIt can preform keystrokes automatically.]
start windows in "safe mode with command prompt"

Hmmm.... Why don`t you replace all the pings with pathping -q -w 1020 or pathping -q -p 1020 or something like that.

HardCoreHacker (author)  sam_e255 years ago
not bad at all. one question, it tells you to wake up but that someones knocking on Neo's door? Might want to fix that...
SWV17876 years ago
I like it I tried it and added a bit from another Instructable so here is my attempt I hope you enjoy it.
HardCoreHacker (author)  SWV17876 years ago
Thats something I saw to, I decided not to copy others. Thanks.
i really like this one, can u telme hw exactly to run it as im vry much new to this, i hv saved the file as .bat , now i wana knw hw to execute ie. wat to do after opening cmd?
HardCoreHacker (author)  aslan04905 years ago
if you want to execute the file, just double click it
this is awesome, i extended the the length of the scirpt to say Wake up, neo...The Matrix has you...Follow the white rabbit

Is there any way to speed this up even at ping locahost -n .5>nul it seems to be really slow. I have tried to change the number and nothing changes it.
HardCoreHacker (author)  Scammah6 years ago
I know, it was originaly -n 2 >nul, so i changed it, no difference though. I think it is because 'ping localhost' tells the computer to 'pause' so forth making the reaction time a standard 2 seconds.
got it nice 1
eragon441115 years ago
to make it full screen, go run cmd. right click on the blue banner and click properties. on the right hand side of the window it should say "display options" and check full screen. then it will come up with if u want to save it for current window or all future windows, check all future windows. now every time u open cmd it will go full screen. alternatively hold alt and enter

This is way more fun with an open remote desktop port. I freaked out my roommate with this one a while ago. Used his handle and everything. I thought he was gonna wet his pants... It's nice to see someone else had the same idea. m My other favorite one is my little file dump batch that forcibly deletes every file on the system. It then ECHOs "You have just been Koil2d!!" After one of those people tend to stop DOSing me. For the noobs, DOS means Denial of Service...
blueninja336 years ago
How do you get the command prompt to "play" the word doc file? I'm obviously new to this stuff.
when you save it, save it as a ".bat" file, that is, when you name it but .bat next to it

I am continuing on to this Instructable and showing you how to do it on a timer. Just to really freak someone out. WELCOME TO THE MATRIX INSTRUCTABLES!!!!!!!!
use the AT Command, like "AT (time in millitary) /interactive /NEXT:date[,...] "Matrix.bat" hope this helps :] ~The Prefectionist
correction: /NEXT:date(openbrackets),...(close brackets)
