Step 1: Its So Colorful

First type
'@ echo off'

Now you have to choose you color. their are many combinations. All things below are combinations.*Remember, first digit is background, second forground.*

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

Try mixing it up a little for cool color combos!

Step 2: W Wa Wak Wake

You have to type the letters in ,for lack of a better term, one at a time like in the pictures.

Step 3: Ping Pong

Next type
'ping localhost -n .5 >nul'
*This tells the computer to pause, I guess, for .5 seconds.*

Step 4: CLEAR ZAP!!!!

Next type
'cls'
*This clears the screen but don't worry, nothing will be lost. The next line will pop up before the one your viewing leaves.

Step 5: Wake Up Neo... the Matrix Has You....

Their you go, Trinity's hack.

    Well, when it comes to Mac OS, the terminal commands are different from Command Prompt commands. These are Linux commands so you will have to find equivalent commands for Unix systems.

    Is there any way possible i could keep the text showing, so when it has said 1 sentence, it keeps it there whilst the other one types... instead of the first sentence disappearing?

    You could do that. There is something similar you can do with variables: Here is an example: @echo off set message=Wake up Neo echo %message:~0,1% ping localhost -n 2 >nul echo %message:~0,2% ping localhost -n 2 >nul echo %message:~0,3% and so on...

    Alt+Enter. You can preform this manually, or automatically [AutoIt can preform keystrokes automatically.]

    Hmmm.... Why don`t you replace all the pings with pathping -q -w 1020 or pathping -q -p 1020 or something like that.
