Hold N Scroll [UPDATED]

Postby limbo » December 29th, 2007, 6:25 pm

Its been more than two years from the first release... and now Hold N Scroll is finally updated... :smt041

This plugin keeps a part of the displayed text stady and scrolls a big text in the following spaces. :idea:

You can use it to create lines like the following. (Red parts are still - Blue parts are moving)
ARTIST: "SCROLLING TEXT HERE"
TITLE: "SCROLLING TEXT HERE"

The new version has limitation on scroll speed and gives better results.
For more info refer to Readme file.

for download go to http://www.eserver.gr

Dude, I'm curious... How do you make a plugin like your "Word By"?
I mean, the DLL is called once in X-amount of time. It returns it's value and then, I supposed, it's unloaded from memory.

Then how do you keep track of the words that were already written and the words still to come by? Registry?

Thanks a lot, bro! ;)
It's a bit too complicated for my skill level, but you helped me a lot! ;)

Please use the latest version (0.2).
0.2
Version changes: Fixed bug with scrolling speed. The text is scrolling with minimum 250 msecs


If you like to have even more slow speed then change the refresh rate on LCD Smartie (not the scrolling speed)

Did I mention that in some cases you have to include the final part (Moving Part) in to brakcets? $dll(holdnscroll.dll,1,Steady Part,16/Moving Part)

For instance if you trying to display RSS feeds you have to include the RSS statement into brackets
$dll(holdnscroll.dll,1,RSS ,16/($Rss(http://slashdot.org/index.rss,b)))

Greets! :lol:
