Values for followspeed and followrate

Poster: slowhandz

For those of us using a Follow Scrolling menu,
(aka: Always Available) ... ampleid=11

I've always wondered what CHANGING these values does:

followspeed=5    // Follow Scrolling Speed
followrate=40    // Follow Scrolling Rate

For example, the followspeed...
is 10 FASTER or SLOWER than 5 ?

Same thing for followrate...
is 50 slower or faster than 40?

Is there a minimum... (i.e. is 1 valid ?)

The values above (5, 40) are the default
settings in the download, but it would
be nice to know what changing these values
actually does.

Any help here would be appreciated... (Andy?)

followrate is the number of milliseconds between executing the scrolling code. If you set this to 1000 you would see increments of 1 second.

followspeed is the number of jumps in pixels the menu makes at each interval.

The above will be completely re-written in version 4 of the menu, I've no idea how yet but it will change as the current system is a little buggy

Hope this helps
