WORD::BADBABE;
MAKE ScrollingText :a^ Frame*& [
^Z^^<do>M<<void>>Scroll0[
@BADBABE::*&::^txt(2x'010100110110111101101101011001010010000001110100011001010111100001110100',x,y)
*&::x++;
*&::y++;
<do>Scroll&]];

I didn't know what language you wanted that code in, so I just made one. Simple enough.

Scrolling text like movie credits, or text that slowly "types out" in a dialog box?

Found this with google:
Code: Select all
#include <iostream>

int main()
{
    char text[] = "Hello. This is a typewriter effect done in C.";
    int len = strlen(text);

    for (int i = 0; i <= len; i++)
    {
        printf("%c", text[i]);
        _sleep(150);
    }

    return 0;
}
You should be able to figure it out with that.

You expect us to go get an emulator and play Final Fantasy V, when you haven't told us what your trying to do the "scrolling text" in? Could it be C++, or a website type thing with Javascript? Or could it be Flash, or could it be trying to figure out how to display Text on a calculator? Or maybe you want us to teach you sign language?

First, tell us what language you are programming in(if you are programming).
Second, tell us what you don't understand about "scrolling text".
Then, maybe we could help you.

Dude, use some logics man.
Have a string, display a character at a time ( "stringname[i]" ), and then pause for a bit. :P
Of course, you have to customize it for whatever library you're using.

And that's why you learn to figure simple things like this out yourself.

You're in violation of preamble paragraph 2 sentence 2, 4, and likely 5, as well as the entirety of section 3. As such, this is definitely a "Post You Shouldn't Make". You are welcome to try again... in a different thread.
