B81 Feedback Marquee Scrolling

Just checking out the scrolling on ARC’s Now Playing screen.

Test Track:

Artist: Stars of the Lid
Album: Stars of the lid and their refinement of the Decline
Track: “That Finger on Your Temple Is The Barrel of my Raygun”

Comments:

Overall I think it works well, I will test with an even longer track title in a bit. I thought the scrolling was a tad too quick, and that a “End of Track Title” symbol would help indicate that the track title was done.

Back Again.

Test Track

Artist: Sufjan Stevens
Album: “Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel the Illinoise”
Track Title: ‘‘The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience but You’re Going to Have to Leave Now, or, ‘I Have Fought the Big Knives and Will Continue to Fight Them Until They Are Off Our Lands!’’’

(I told you I would try with something longer, lol).

Comments:

The scrolling ends with a “…” after “…Civilzation and” So the entire title scrolling is:
‘‘The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and …"

Is there a character limit to the marquee effect? It looks like it based on the test above, seems to be about 67 characters leaving space to add the “…”

Good catch. It does seem to be cut off. Taking a look into it :slight_smile:

Hey @Rugby is this still happening to you? We’ve investigated on our side and cannot reproduce.

Is it possible you’ve edited the name of this track? Perhaps try other absurdly long artist/titles and see what’s happening. There should be no character limit.
