The most basic effect seen in all demos. A scrolling text.




As seen in the second workshop, a scrolltext is not simply throwing a marquee tag onto the screen. You have to do all yourself. At the end of the workshop we will have our own text crawling across the screen.

  • Design of the demo: select a font, chose colors
  • Include font and map letters
  • important decision: overscan or not?
  • Copy some letters to screen
  • Several ways to do it: slow using less memory, fast using a lot of ram
  • write text and display
  • optionally add another effect seen in previous workshops
