Introduction: The Best Matrix Falling Code Effect

About: Hey, I an average person, I have many interest including electronics, music, design and architecture. I also enjoy skateboarding in my free time when I am not working. I would really like to get into 3d printi…
Many versions of the falling code effect have been attempted. Many of them are fails, it is very hard to recreate the original, but the best one that can be redone in notepad, is this one. I have some pictures of some that are not as great as they could be, because they do not display random numbers, or even numbers at all. This script i great for the beginner in bat files, because it is very simple and very easy to understand. The code for this script is very simple and very easy to understand, it is actually surprisingly short also! You will notice this in the next step. (for experienced programmers it is very short!). Now, on to the code!

Step 1: THE CODE

Copy and paste this into a blank notepad document. (in between the hash tags)
################################################################
@echo off
title AHHHHHH
color 02
echo This Matrix Affect was created by Superman
echo This program will shut down your computer!
echo The Matrix Effect begins in
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo 5
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo 4
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo 3
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo 2
ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo 1

:superman
echo %random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%%random%
goto superman
###########################################

As I said this is a very short code,
if you don't want to know how this code works, skip to the last step.

Step 2: HOW IT WORKS.

As in my messenger instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-Chat-Room-With-Notepad/), I will go through what every part does, if you don't want to learn how, just skip this part.

Step 3:

Here is how it works, pretty simple, could be made even simpler if you wanted to take out the count down.
Well, there it is.

Step 4: WORD OF CAUTION

Word of Caution, I was informed by an expert that this, left running, for to long, would have the ability to take down a computer. That was pretty obvious to me because the scroll bar goes all the way down to the bottom  instantly (Close it after watching it for a very short period). Anyway,USE AT YOUR DISCRETION, IT CAN DAMAGE A COMPUTER, DO NOT LEAVE IT RUNNING, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE.

Step 5: SAVING AS a BATCH FILE

This is how to save your notepad as a batch file. Refer to the pictures below.
After you have saved it,CONGRATULATIONS, you have successfully created a good version of the Matrix Falling Code effect.
