you have to save the file as ".bat", probably your filename would be matrix.bat.txt

Goto Explorer, then, Tools>> Folder options>> View >> uncheck "hide known file extensions"

Please help. My computer cant run batch files. It only says "Windows cannot find 'C:Users\Admin\Desktop\matrix.bat'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." Like I said, PLEASE HELP

You've left out a backslash between the colon : and “users”

WaterLemon7 (author)acidbass2011-06-25

WaterLemon7 (author)acidbass2011-06-25

you have to save the file as a batch file (.bat)

WaterLemon7 (author)acidbass2011-05-09

hmmm obviously... o yeah i know what it is

when you save it you have to write it as matrix.bat

.bat means a batch file allowing it to work

one of my friends knows how but he won't tell me

WaterLemon7 (author)The nerdling2011-05-09

lol thats a shame

hightekrednek2396 (author)2011-03-08

if you leave the second line of randoms out it doesnt come up with the

"not recognized as internal or external"


sorry that second and third line of "%random%"s is a typo when i pasted it just keep the %random%'s in one line and it should be okay.

WaterLemon7 (author)2011-03-10
