Scrollbar

From GTAModding
Jump to: navigation, search

A scrollbar is a horizontal text-based display formed using LED bulbs that scroll sideways, usually located on the sides of structures. It can be seen in GTA III, Vice City, Liberty City Stories, and GTA IV.

GTA III

GTA III has a plethora of scrollbars, some of which display actual news of the current state of the islands. The type of scrollbar determines which text to display. The width and height columns are the scaling of the scrollbar; a negative value mirrors the text usually for intended reading on the opposite side. The bulb column is the scale of individual LED bulbs; the larger the value, the larger the dots. All scrollbar text is copied as is, including spaces.
