I have made these changes to teh text effect.

1) You now have a speed control, 1.0=normal speed

2) You now have a direction control. Valid values are: left, up, down

3) I changed when the scrolling text recycles. Before , if you had 10 characters of text and a 5 character wide tree, the recycle

would happen when the tenth character was displayed on the right side of your tree.

New method, now recycle is only based on the sequence duration. In the above example you might scroll 10 characters in 12 seconds, set sequence

timing to 16 seconds and your text will completely scroll off your display.

So what does it look like?

array_to_save

username f

user_target AA_MATRIX

effect_class text

effect_name DEMOTEXT_LEFT

text1 Merry Christmas

text2 TUNE to 88.5fm

window_degrees 360

text1_color #FF0D05

text2_color #2FFF05

frame_delay 100

topPixel 15

show_frame n

speed 1

direction left

seq_duration 16

fade_in 0

fade_out 0

OBJECT_NAME text

Scroll Left, speed=1.0

AA_MATRIX~DEMOTEXT_LEFT.gif

Scroll Left, speed =0.5

AA_MATRIX~DEMOTEXT_LEFT_0.5.gif

Scroll Left, speed =1.5

AA_MATRIX~DEMOTEXT_LEFT_1.5.gif

Scroll Up

AA_MATRIX~DEMOTEXT_UP.gif

Scroll down

AA_MATRIX~DEMOTEXT_DOWN.gif

Finally, the text will look different if the target is a mega tree, Here is the same text as above, direction up

AA~DEMOTEXT_UP_MTREE.gif

i would suggest speeds of

0.25, 0.50, 1.0, 1.50, 2.0

experiment if you notice a flicker.

thanks
