    Really useless seeing you can run a .bat script (open it with a notepad to see what it does) but .exes can be a viruses.

    Virus the fuck more. I rather type text in a txt document and create a .bat file than trust some .exe on the internet is what I was saying.

    Well, it's linkiboy. And would someone like him jeopardize his own credibility by posting a virus?
    Besides, I've tried posting the BAT file as text in Code tags but that got removed.

    Yeah, the concept isn't new at all.
    It's been on two plus seven minus five chan for years.
    It's how they hid CP.
    BUT IN MORE INTERESTING NEWS:
    Linkiboy isn't showing off the concept, I did that weeks ago.
    He's sporting a program he created and named himself.

    Geez guys, I just wanted to post my project. I mean if I bother to program, but not bother to release the program, what's the point?

    If you think it's a virus, scan it before you extract it. Simple as that.

    Hey guess what. I didn't know this could be done. And i think this is pretty effin cool.

    Congrats to those that know this. Congrats to those that think this is a waste of time because you can use a batch file. Big fucking whooptidoo. It pisses me the hell off when someones great comment is "Old!" or ANYTHING along those lines. (i just ranted about this on Kotaku today [​IMG]) The ONLY reason to say "Wow this is old!" is to say "Look at me! I think i'm better than the poster! Quick lets compare wang sizes. OH! Wait no, i win because i saw this last year! HAHAHAHz!!1one"

    Anyhoo, i digest...

    Linkiboy: thanks for this! I'm gonna play with it a bit [​IMG]

    Oh, and for those that think its a waste because you can use a batch file, don't use this! Use your batch file! Me? I'm checking out lini's proggie.

    No one is saying that they knew this before anyone or that its old, its just common sense to not trust .exe when you can save your system from possible security threats/problems just by typing text into a document and renaming the extension to .bat.

    Or maybe some people like exes better because they are easier to handle? And maybe some people trust linkiboy because he is a respected member of GBAtemp?
