I have also made lots of pure Batch games like platformers, rogue-likes, and other stuff. They're are all here

These are nice. Maybe not so much for the gameplay, but because you create an atmosphere with the story+music.

Coded this a LONG time ago. Horrible coding, but it's too big for me to really redo.

*Edit: ?Macro's adjusted to invert the color of a connected line on win.
I like the idea. Had a go at reducing it down a bit, simplified the testing and output. Only thing left to do is make the AI 'smart'
- AI has been given a brain. Code updated
AI has been given a brain
- Ai's brain was malformed. surgery complete
Now tests if the square beneath an intended block move is empty prior to making the block.
AI move priority is:
1) Complete any available 4 point line as a winning move
2) Block the first encountered 4 point line to prevent a players winning move
3) attempt to Block the first encountered potential 3 point line to inhibit player board development
4) take the first available move to make a 3 point line of it's own and develop own position
forethought testing function exits with errorlevel 0 when a valid move is found which is used to exit the AI brain function.
Errorlevel 1 is returned if if no move found in which case:
5) take first available random move

- Available Move positions are tracked using the AvMoves variable, with the coordinates of a succesful move removed from AvMoves using substring modification
- Player and random moves are checked against AvMoves in the :Test subroutine, which uses findstr to determine if there is Y;X coordinate available for an attempted X move.
- Y Coordinate is returned via errorlevel, and if no Y available for the given X, errorlevel 0 is returned - which rejects the x coordinate move.
- AvMoves is also used at the start of each game to display the 'board'
- Each occupied y;x coordinate is defined with 'X' for player or 'O' for opponent when a move is taken for use in the :Brains Array tests, with endlocal / setlocal being used to undefine them at the end of each round
- macro's are used throughout the script, predominately out of laziness. Allows reuse of repetitive code in a concise manner, supplying the relevent value the macro iterates over using substring modifiication.

Re: Batch Games

#19 Post by T3RRY » 01 Nov 2020 09:31

Decided to try my hand at a pure batch Tetris [ no powershell or external exe's at this point ].
Game uses Vt Escape control character - so unfortunately windows 10 only

I was somewhat lazy with the piece rotation routine- I adapted some routines for flipping / mirroring 'images' from one of my previous projects in order to simulate 90 Degree rotation. I'm sure it could be done more efficiently though.

Display elements [border, control legend and pieces] are defined to their respective coordinates with a prefix of } and output to a file to be displayed via the type command - enabling smooth, flicker-free animation

Collision detection is achieved by detemining if all new y;x coordinates for an attempted move are undefined - If true, the move is allowed.
Once a piece is Set in place - triggered by a downward move encountering a non empty coordinate during an attempted move, each cell coordinate for the current piece is defined with the display value for the piece. When a line is matched, for each line above the matched line, values from each cell are shifted down by one until the matched line is reached. A tempory variable is used to prevent the cells being iterated over from having their values overriden before the iteration is complete.

Code: Select all

Perhaps you could be interested in my Tetris game in a pure Batch file that uses no additional or auxiliary programs. There is also a version of Tetris in color that uses a PowerShell engine to Read arrow keys and show color text in an efficient way.

Hi Antonio, had already seen your versions - the idea of a more efficient pure batch controller is tempting. The PowerShell engine is definitely worth trying out or offering as an alternative.

Making Tetris was a thought experiment for me in how I might approach it using VT codes. As such the methodology I've used is somewhat different to other versions of Tetris I've seen out there.

Once upon a time, I took a bunch of games written in BASIC and ported them to batch: https://github.com/sintrode/batch_minigames

Treasure.bat is there because there was a topic on there about code for calculating square roots that I wanted to try out.

What started out from a request for a tutorial became yet another batch game, A version of Snake for windows 10

Game requires getkey.exe to be in a folder or childfolder the game is stored in; If downloaded from the link in the games header, Both snake.bat and getkey.exe are included

Your snake game does not work for me on Win 10. It partially prints the initial screen, and then just hangs.

I do hope you have seen my pure batch implementation of snake.bat - It has extremely smooth graphics, yet does not require any 3rd party exe file as long as you are on Win 10. If pre Win 10 then adding Aacini's CursorPos.exe to the directory provides smooth graphics. But even without it, the game is still very playable - there just may be some annoying screen flicker.

Also there is my faithful batch implementation of the original Crowther and Woods Colossal Cave Adventure - the original interactive fiction text based computer game. My adventure.bat is again pure batch, with all of the descriptive text messages and rules embedded within the file. The cool thing there is I have obfuscated (primitive cipher) all text, variable names, and comments so it is safe to look at the source code without spoiling the fun. The game automatically encodes input and decodes screen output as needed.

I have indeed previously seen your snake game, and it's very nice indeed, however I failed In my past efforts to isolate and replicate the input handling in a stable manner.

Follow up question regarding the issue with my version not working for you - did you download the zip from the Google drive link or place the above batch in a folder that contains getkey.exe ?

The main reason I'd expect it to hang would be that Getkey.exe is not found by the dir command when defining the path for it. When I'm done with work I'll update the script to notify the user if that occurs.

If you do have the download version or getkey.exe I'll have to see if I can replicate the failure. I have two windows 10 systems running different versions and tested the download with both after uploading without error.

The main reason I'd expect it to hang would be that Getkey.exe is not found by the dir command when defining the path for it. When I'm done with work I'll update the script to notify the user if that occurs.
Scrub that. I missed the point about it hanging while typing the ~tmp file.
I'm stumped as to why that may be occuring. Any idea's?

As for smoothness of gameplay, there's no issue here. Game speed is user adjustable during gameplay; and as you'll see, there's no flicker evident.

Also is it by intent the player can collide with their tail by making a move that opposes their current momentum?
I found this to be particularly problematic if making a U turn and the keypress for the right angle direction change is not picked up by your controller.

There's some similarities in how my script deal with repetative actions
rather than a function for generating the border, I made a macro that also takes arguments for color and character

expanded as:

Code: Select all

 %Background.Border%{48;2;150;100;70}{1}{50}{1}{25}{▒}
Vector changes are also handled in a similar manner, translating keypresses to values used in the move.snake macro

Code: Select all

 Set "Left={x}{-}"&Set "Right={x}{+}"&Set "Up={y}{-}"&Set "Down={y}{+}"

Yeah the controller isn't too reliable, but part of it is because I only check for movement every 13 "frames", so some keypresses are missed sometimes. I could have taken that out, but then the speed would be waayyyy too fast. And yeah, it is by intent that moving opposite to direction results in a collision. It's true I could've make a macro, but I feel like it's a little overkill, especially with something like background border that's only generated once. To be honest, in those situations I feel like a simple function is easier to look at / debug. I'm not too big of a fan of huge macros, when most of the time you could just use string substitution to make more simple macros.

Your version of snake is pretty damn good. The only problem I had was some flicker, and on my old laptop it ran pretty slow.

Unfortunately I've not found a means to standardise delays that isn't impacted by the specs of a PC

I have two PC's I've tested this on. A gaming rig and an old student laptop - and it's significantly slower on the laptop. Hence why I included the ability to modify the delay rate during gameplay using + - keys.

It's only my slower pc at the fastest gameplay setting {0 delay} that I see any flicker, and once the tail is two characters or longer this disappears. This happens because the only cells I clear are the cell previously occupied by the head and the last tail cell position. On the slow pc at tail lengths < 2 it results in noticible flicker.

That is actually fairly simple. Treat your game as a movie, consisting of a series of static frames with incremental changes displayed sequentially to simulate motion. You want the frame rate to be constant, regardless of the speed of the PC.

Each time you draw a frame, store the current time in a variable as an integral value. The %TIME% pseudo variable has centisecond resolution (two decimal places). Parse the time into each of its components and do the simple math to convert the time into an integral centisecond value. Treat each centisecond as a clock tick. You want a constant number of ticks between each frame. A large tick value equates to a slow game, a small tick value a fast game.

Between the display of each frame you need to gather player input and compute all the game action (player and other entity movements, collisions, random events, etc., and finally draw everything (or just the changes) into a frame buffer. I simply use strings within environment variables as the frame buffer. Then when it is time to draw the next frame, simply print the frame buffer strings to the screen.

Your game will be in an "endless" loop, gathering input, computing actions, and drawing frames. Once you have successfully completed all actions necessary for the next frame, you enter a tight loop where you are just waiting for the correct time to display the frame. Compute the current integral clock time and subtract from the value of the previous frame display. If it is >= the target number of clicks, then display your next frame. If not, then continue waiting in your tight loop. If the time difference is negative, then you crossed the midnight threshold and you must add 8,640,000 clicks (24 x 60 x 60 x 100) to your difference to get the correct positive value.

In my snake game, the number of computations per frame is more or less constant, so I simplify things a bit by doing all frame computations after the requisite frame ticks have expired and then immediately display the result.

Either way, as long as all computations fit within the window of your specified frame tick rate, then you have smooth animation.

That is a lot of words, but it is actually very little code. My snake game is well commented, so you should be able to look at the code and recognize how I accomplish all of this.
