    didn't work at first but you need to verify that the code you pasted in notepad appears exactly as in the picture...

    RedFishRyan, if your mart Matrix isn't working it is most likely that you didn't put in the code right because it starts then finds and error and shuts down immediately. There should be and error message in the command prompt if you could get me that error I can troubleshoot it.
