Not that kind of Matrix! Oh well, I was having fun. Pretty Simple, but I thought it looked pretty neat.

That was awesome!

To make it a bit more realistic, you need to fade the trail of letters dropping from the screen.

Hey! Awesome thanks to everyone!

@ TheComet: I did have it setup to fade as it went down, but it ran reeealllllyy slow using PRINT and TEXT. I don't know much about memblocks right now, but I am thinking that I can FOR NEXT some memblocks into catching letters as images and fade them on planes.

I'll post it when I get some time to do it, but I have been working 3rd shift for GOTV. It's pretty hectic at work right now.

YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS! (View attached image by clicking "view" and look at the text in the red circle). I think the matrix hates me...

You could use objects, because they are much faster than text and easy to fade.

I tried with objects last night, but dpb didn't like 21875 planes being made with rnd textures. I will continue my adventures, but until then:

Hmmm... I have a screen saver of this, and not all of the character grids are used at the same time. You know, there are gaps. Hang on, I'll see if I can find a video of it or something.

OK, I found it:

It's not very good at all, but it shows the spaces. And here is how he did it:

They are individual faded objects that randomly fall down from the sky.



And of course, I hope you don't take any of this personally...

I posted a little program a while back that does the matrix effect. It's not perfect but I think it's pretty close. It's not DB but the source (C) is included.

That's a pretty slick app NeX! I will definitely check the source!

TheComet, I take nothing personally. Nor serious. And touche to all that data!

Because then you can't control the rate at which it moves without implementing timer based movement meaning on some peoples' systems it'll go rediculously fast.

the only concatenation in the first was:

Which i figured could be fixed with a

command. I wanted to keep it truly 20 lines for the challenge. But I now think I will work on a 3d 20 line matrix screen saver type thingy with some "get image"s for the letters on planes kinda like NeX the Fairly Fast Ferret's app.

Ahh... Here we go.. Not exactly what I was wanting where concatenation goes, but I don't think this could be done without it:

It doesn't run... I get "Could not determine parameter type of 'plane planenum' at line 4".

I know that this is the opposite of "within" 20 lines, but this is the code above without concatenation:



Does this code work? I am not sure why it wouldn't work the other way.

Hmm... I have notice that "plain" and "plane" both do the same thing in my code,.. doh! what about this?:

Yep, that ran. That is very neat! You should add that code to the first post.
