Now if he's not too dumb,(and as he wants to program I suppose he isn't dumb) via that link and looking a bit further than his nose is he can find a site that is filled up with such batch thingies.
Here's a user input for example:
Code:

:: input2.bat
:: get user input with verification and option to quit
@ECHO off
ECHO @PROMPT $N:$_CD $P> %temp%.\setback1.bat
%COMSPEC%/E:2048/C%temp%.\setback1.bat> %temp%.\goback.bat
DEL %temp%.\setback1.bat
FOR %%c in (%temp%.\ CD) do %%c %temp%.
 
:again
SET input=
ECHO. Type input and press [Enter].
FC.EXE CON nul /LB1 /N |DATE |FIND.EXE "1:"> setinput.bat
ECHO :loop > enter.bat
ECHO IF not "%%input%%"=="" SET input=%%input%% %%5>>enter.bat
ECHO IF "%%input%%"=="" SET input=%%5>> enter.bat
ECHO SHIFT >> enter.bat
ECHO IF not "%%5"=="" GOTO loop >> enter.bat
FOR %%c in (call del) do %%c setinput.bat
DEL enter.bat
IF not "%input%"=="" CHOICE.COM /N/CYQN " Is this correct? Yes, No or Quit "
IF not "%input%"=="" IF errorlevel 3 GOTO again
IF not "%input%"=="" IF errorlevel 2 SET input=
 
:end
FOR %%c in (call del) do %%c %temp%.\goback.bat
IF not "%input%"=="" ECHO. Input was %input%
::


Get it now MiniMax?

And what's your post has to do with his question MiniMax ?

Ah yes, you mentioned it before, and unless you're willing to tell us what that idea is, there's really, no need for you to mention everywhere that you got an idea!

And just so you know, some of us have more than one idea during a 5 minutes interval

You mean a batch text adventure game? Do you know how long and painful that would be? It wouldn't even be prod-worthy because the file would be MASSIVE.

The reason I say you're a n00b isn't that typo. Everyone make those, and many of them.

The reason is that you didn't run at least once the final version before posting it, or you would have noticed it.

That's really n00bish.
