Hey guys I'm a newb at batching and I'm wondering if you guys could help me in my batching adventures. Just post some commands or any advice you guys could give me. Here is list of the top 3 things I want to know (do not limit your advice to just this):
1. How to make different colors
2. How to open another batch from a batch
3. How to make movies

P.S. My PSN name is qui-gon621 just incase you wanted to know

First of all, check out my tutorial for batch users here.

Second, for colors, type in color CODE. The code is as follows:
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

The first character in the code is for the background color and the second is the text. E.g color 0e would turn the screen background black and the text yellow.

Third, there is no way to make "movies" so to speak, but you can make simple animations. Check out I Got A Cup Production's tutorial here

Exempting movies which really doesn't have anything to do with batch-script, I usually point people to www.dostips.com.
