I want to have a matrix style batch file as the screensaver.

http://tech.thundi.com/?p=47565 is among the many already done but probable not with a batch file. Generating random characters to fill the screen only pushes and scrolls the screen not really like the matrix style in sliding columns. You would have to maximize the command screen which still has the windows border unless you can change that. Essentially not a screensaver but try anyway to see what you can do. Good luck.

First, convert your batch file to an exe file, then change the .exe to .scr

im not sure about setting a batch file as the screensaver, but i would think that there is a number of matrix style screensavers.... if you know how to code, you could probably make one yourself.... windows use a .scr format for the screensaver usually.
