    Scrollz Announcements
    This is a completely configurable scrolling text banner. All of the options are inside an INI file, including up to 10 different messages to display. The display field can be adjusted to whatever length and placement you would like on your menu. Even the color of the display is configurable!


    Hi,
    I'm running on Linux and try as I might Scrollz won't find the .ini file.
    I'm using the full path and the permissions on the file seem correct. Any ideas?

    Is the .ini file in your scripts directory? If so, just use the command 'scrollz scrollz.ini' and it should find it.

    It should... but it doesn't. Maybe I'm missing an environemnt variable?
    In order to run any MPL I have to use the full path. So I have it setup as \mystic\themes\default\scripts\scrollz \mystic\themes\default\scripts\scrollz.ini (With forward slashes).

    Hmmmm, that's strange. I have it set up here in Linux as:
    scrollz scrollz.ini

    You shouldn't need the entire path. Why would it need forward slashes?

    Is you Theme path set properly in System Paths in mystic -cfg?

    Thanks Paulie,

    HSM, that's something else you can do to test it out. Try running it without the .ini file and see what happens. It does have default settings so it should run with the 'Ad' message that's in there.

    Let me know if that works for you.

    Yes he did. If you go to the Menu editor in mystic -cfg, and hit /S to go into the settings, you'll see it towards the bottom of the window.

    You can have one on every menu if you want to. ;)

    The only thing I've found, is the 'Offset', which tells it how many spaces to have between repeating the message, will only save '1'. So, what I did, is add spaces to the end of the message. g00r00 did say it will be fixed in the next pre-release.

    Yep, theme path is correct. /mystic/themes/ .

    For all my MPL's, if I don't use the full path they don't work. Don't know why.

    Nope.
    scrollz - nothing
    scrollz scrollz.ini - nothing
    /m/t/d/s/scrollz (with or without)scrollz.ini -nothing .
    /m/t/d/s/scrollz /m/t/d/s/scrollz.ini - it works, but only displays the ad message and "cant read ini".
