Text Scrolling
« on: December 12, 2006, 03:37:00 am »
Well, I have been working on pokemon, wanting to make it as close as possible to the original, and that included certain menus, namely the Pokedex.

So I started toying with the idea of a true scrolling menu on the graphscreen. My first attempt at it gave me the following results: http://tifreakware.calcgames.org/tifreak8x/textscroll/textscroll.gif

After a lil while, and Zeromus (I think is who it was) pointed out my error on adding an additional string to the end of the text commands (You got to make sure you close off them parenthesis for the sub( command!) I was able to get the following result:

And then to spice things up a bit, I added 2 different types of arrows that overwrite the cursor while "scrolling":

I currently have the selection part of the routine set up and ready to go, I just don't have the key press part of it programmed in yet. I am also going to add page by page scrolling, and then write a decent readme, and then I will release it to you guys. :)smile.gif
