CoolScroll


Description: Show your text like hackers did a few years ago on the good old C64 or Amiga/Atari to present their hack and to greet their friends etc. Change the font or the background image yourself, if you want to. The following options are available:

Parameters Value/Meaning
backimage The image to be drawn behind the scrolltext
asciioffset The offset between your fonts and the ASCII table. E.g: 32 means that the applet expects that all the characters typed have an ASCII value equal or greater than 32, so you don't have to draw ALL the fonts!
fontimage The image containing the fonts. take a look at the one i've use to understand how customize it
fontx The width of each letter.
fonty The height of each letter...
scrollspeed The speed of your scrolltext. I suggest a minimum of 5.
scrolltext Say something...(What? a hidden message?==null ;->>>
