Scrolling - idle vs active?

Post by G8SEZ » Sat Jun 27, 2020 4:52 pm

I was thinking that I would like to see the ability to only scroll the MMDVM idle banner so that when active the mode is stationary along with the rest of the information displayed.

Anyone else think this would be an improvement?

It would lead to pixel burn/fade in the modes where it is always lighting up the same pixels in the static text.

Yes, I realise there are compromises. I thought the ability to choose would be nice.

Someone else has tried to eliminate the memory corruption that leads to pixel errors when scrolling is enabled. As yet it hasn't been merged into main because Jonathan doesn't have the hardware to test it out.
