Automated multiplayer

I made the following batch code which allows for easy hosting or joining of multiplayer games in a prompt GUI.

Huh. When I first read the title I thought you meant that it would be like Automated Wolfenstein i.e. Having bots kill each other with no way for human players to join.

I would then have asked why.

Would have been cool getting people to code bots and then making them fight to the death... robot wars doom style.

OK, this batch file exists and works as intended, nice. But it's inflexible, and also inferior to already existing solutions. Both ZDL and command prompt itself surpass this batch file by being as flexible and convenient as possible for what each of them is. Sorry to say, I don't think people will use your batch file as common practice.
