Default Cool Batch Files

I just thought I would share some batch files that I use quite often with you guys. I especially use the Malwarebytes batch files quite often since people like to get click happy.

Just copy and paste the code into a text file, then change the extension from "txt" to "bat". Post your favs here too!

Malwarebytes

Update Malwarebytes for 32-bit Windows
Quote:
start "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" mbam.exe /runupdate
Update Malwarebytes for 64-bit Windows
Quote:
start "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" mbam.exe /runupdate
Run Full Scan with Malwarebytes for 32-bit Windows
Quote:
start "C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" mbam.exe /fullscan
Run Full Scan with Malwarebytes for 64-bit Windows
Quote:
start "C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" mbam.exe /fullscan

One Click Static IP!

This one you have to improvise depending on the system. Hopefully you will get what needs to go where.

Quote:
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" static 1.2.3.4 255.255.255.0 1.2.3.4
netsh interface ip set dns name="Local Area connection" static 1.2.3.4
netsh interface ip add dns "Local Area Connection" 1.2.3.4
One Click DHCP

Quote:
netsh interface ip set address name="Local Area Connection" dhcp
I'll have to see if I have any others. But feel free to post yours!

Wow... I haven't messed with batch files since my DOS 6.22 days.

I used 'em all the time- instead of typing in the command prompts to launch a specific game or app- I'd create a batch file for each game and app. Like "Mechwarrior.bat" or such- so instead of typing:
C:\cd Activision
C:\Activision\MW2.exe

I'd just type
C:\Mechwarrior.bat

And it'd do the rest for me. I typically used the Qbasic editor to create batch files back then. Ah... those were the days. I remember some of the older games- upon install the executable would be burried under a bunch of different folders so the batch file really came in handy and sped things up.

Heh. I kinda' miss DOS. I think it'd be neat to someday throw together an uber old rig- like an early Pentium or maybe even a 5x86 just to mess around with DOS and such. Sure would be neat.

Default Re: Cool Batch Files

I've been working on a project like this for a little while. I've been looking for a P66 or 486DX2 for the job. Whats funny though, not more than a few weeks of thinking about it, a friend from work asked me if I wanted some older computers - and he had the perfect hardware for the job. Out of all the junk, all I kept was a couple floppy drives (hey, you never know :P).

So far I have a SB16 that another buddy of mine is bringing over, a creative banshee voodoo3, and a 21" IBM CRT monster. Ideally, I would like to get an AWE32, but thats bit of a stretch. Hopefully, I can dig up enough EDO RAM for 16MB, this baby is gonna scream!!!

And to top it off, totally gotta get one of those "turbo" buttons! Hell yeah.

And the list I would love to get

Doom 1/2
Quake 1/2
Descent 1/2
Wolf3d

That's so EPIC!

Post a project log, please. I'd love to see how well you're able to get this to work. I'd love to do something like this myself some day.

I was thinking about posting something on craigslist and see if anyone has some old computers sitting in the basement/attic or something.

When I bought descent 1/2 on gog (only $4), playing it on my 28" LCD, definately not that nostalgic feeling i was hoping to get b/c everything looked so bad... I installed Windows98 on an older box because it had SB16 and fired up the game.... AWESOME experience! Before I knew it, I realized I was playing for several hours. There is still something missing though.

I think true vintage is key... It's gonna be a lot of fun getting all that old hardware together.

Oh I hear. I've bought quite a few older DOS games on Steam... and it's just not the same. I miss the command prompt and even Windows 3.1. Such good times IMO.

On my laptop whenever it goes to Sleep, for some reason when I turn it back on the wireless doesn't work. I found out that if I disable/enable it, the wireless comes back. This started to become a real PITA, so I have a batch file and I got a nifty tool from MS to control hardware. Works like a champ

That's the only thing I use batch files for.
