Introduction: The BRPG

About: Gamer and programmer!

I have always been interested in programming, And using batch programming has opened new windows for me. Today, I'll be showing you how to make a fully operational batch programmed RPG.

Step 1: Getting the Requierments


  • A Windows 10, 8, or 7 computer with notepad.exe and cmd.exe installed
  • A decent amount of time
  • Some batch coding experience

Step 2: Open Notepad

Step 3: Set Up the Code

In Notepad, type in the following(*=changeable)

@echo off

title *BRPG

color *F0

this will be the heading of your code.

Step 4: Set Up the Stats

The next thing you need to do set the starting stats (HP, MP, AP, Armor, Weapons, Items). Add the following to your code(*=changeable)

goto startup


set HP=20

set MP=40

set AP=6

set inv_armor=0,0,0,0

set inv_weapon=1,0,0,0

set inv_item=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

set money_cellions=\c\40,000

set money_gold=\g\6,000

set money_dollars=$100,000

set game_lvl=1

set game_exp=0

set game_act=0

set game_enemies-defeated=0

set /p name=What is your name?

echo Welcome %name%, choose your class.


echo *Ninja

echo *Assassin

echo *Warrior

echo *Mage

set /p class= Type option

if "%class%"=="*Ninja" goto act_1_ninja

if "%class%"=="*Assassin" goto act_1_assassin

if "%class%"=="*Warrior" goto act_1_warrior

if "%class%"=="*Mage" goto act_1_mage

if not "%class%"=="*Ninja" goto err

if not "%class%"=="*Assassin" goto err

if not "%class%"=="*Warrior" goto err

if not "%class%"=="*Mage" goto err

Step 5: Set Up the Acts for Your Story

Next you need to set up your story. For each act you make use the following base code. Repeat if needed.(*=changeable)



echo *insert act text here

echo *enter choice

echo *enter choice

set /p *action=Type option

if "%*action%"=="*choice" goto act_*1-1_*ninja

Step 6: (Optional)Set Up the GameOver Screen

If you feel like setting up a battle mechanic, then you'll need a GameOver screen. Here is a base code for one. 99% of it is changeable



echo _____

echo | x x |

echo | _ |

echo |____|


goto act_1_ninja

remember, all of this is changeable and optional.

Step 7: Saving Your Game

Name your file what ever you want, but make sure to add .bat at the end and set the file type to "All Files" so that it doesn't save as a .txt document (.txt=text document). Viola! You have Batch RPG that is only playable on Windows computers. Thank you for viewing this Instructable. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me at See Ya Next Time!
