Bouncing balls animation

Post by Manna5 »

I want to show you my CMD script that animates four balls bouncing by window borders using BG sprites. Example screenshot:
You can hide the metadata or show it again by pressing any key, Esc terminates the script. Code:

Code: Select all

@echo off
title Animated balls using sprites 
set ball_1_x=34
set ball_1_y=17
set ball_1_dx=-1
