Accele- Press Any Key 1.0
From Dave Smith
Attention Batch File Programmers:
Don't Cha hate the predominately boring "Press Any Key to Continue"
message that comes up when you say--> PAUSE ??
In an attempt to relieve this, I have created my own version
of the message. It involves 18 fancy windows:
1. Textured Frame
2. Shove Down
4. Close Frame
5. Fade Out
9. Color Dump
11. Thick Lines
12. Thin Lines
13. Zoom Out
15. Frame Open
16. Off and On
17. Four Windows
18. Sudden Noise
And you can specify the box colors on the command-line.
So the usage:
ACP [option] [boxline color] [inside box color]
whereas the options are listed 1-18 above, and the colors are:
add 128 turn on the "Blink" bit
For an explanation of the box colors:
Press Any Key To Continue Box line color
Inside the box color
So for a "Shake" option, with a green inside box, and a
red box line color:
ACP 6 4 2
or for a "Fade Out" option, with a blinking yellow inside box,
and a Cyan box line color:
ACP 5 3 132
