Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

I hope this "Retro awesomness.bat" is what you are looking for: @echo off setlocal enableExtensions disableDelayedExpansion :: set active, utf-7 and utf8 codepages set /A "utf7Cp=65000, utf8Cp=65001" set "cp=" for /f "delims=." %%a in ('2^>nul chcp') do for %%b in (%%a) do set "cp=%%b" if not defin...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

I think the Windows 7 (AnsiSys with my modifications) version of this script is done for now. The only thing left to do is to make black characters appear on other colored backgrounds (black backgrounds do work though). Will continue work on the Windows 10 one once I get a new Windows 10 machine or ...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

No worries I was able to get it to work before you posted that by removing the cls before the command It works just fine, and I added some modifications to the code as seen above. I just need to make it so that it covers the entire CMD window (so the black border can be gone) and make black (color 0...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Did all that was said. Installed AnsiSys and copied the retro awesomeness.bat. Shows: 'AnsiSys.exe)' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. If I remove the ) at the end, it just appears a female sign, which is glyph 12. cls("Retro awesomeness AnsiSys.ba...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Installing the Windows 10 VM didn't work out for me and I don't have any Windows 10 machines to test this out on. Is it possible to make something similar that'll work for 7 too?

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Does not work on Windows 7 Ultimate x32, which is the one I'm currently using. I'll try it on a Windows 10 VM
So it uses CP850 as the default for CP437 if raster fonts not enabled?

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Codepage: 437. I am using the raster font Characters (CP1252 but they appear just like they're supposed to in the CP437 raster font, in their CP437 equivalents): Control characters 0-31 and 127 not listed, but I use them !"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[\]^_`abcdefghijklmnop...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Glyphs that don't work (or do work but are only produced in gray): 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 26, 27 (•, ◘, ○, ◙, ♪, →, ←) Glyphs that need to be escaped with a ^ character to make them work: 38, 60, 62, 94, 124 (&, <, >, ^, |) If I wanted to put all the characters at once to appear randomly, I would have to ...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

I know, that's why I clearly stated in my post, that it only works on 32-bit Windows systems. This program was tested on Windows XP Professional SP3, and Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, and both worked well on these OSes. On a 64 bit OS it'll just say that debug is not a found command and then immediatel...

Re: Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

Some of my past experiences with this program: - By changing the available colors I can change the color scheme of this program - Characters 7, 8, 9, 10, and 13 still appear when listed, but only in light gray (color 7), even if 7 is not listed as one of the available colors. 26 (and maybe 27) does ...

Going back to one of my old batch files... wanting to add to it

This one only works on 32-bit Windows versions. So, someone made this batch file for me, and I added to it more or less characters. @echo off Setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion :: Limit window size mode con lines=25 :: Determine available characters and available colors set Characters=ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ...
