Maybe I will try it and see if it looks good to me. But if I don't
include it, it isn't really hard for the user to change this few lines.
I don't think that there is a to big drawback if it would scroll ... I
think the skin wouldn't be very much slower. But there is still some
potential in the patch I added, because now the timerstatus is checked
every time you hit a key in the main menu, so it slows down scrolling. I
will fix that for the next realease.
Talking of scrolling text: What would you think of scrolling text (in
general not only in this case), if it would only scroll in one
direction? I think there is no big benefit in scrolling back, as most of
us only read in one direction. ;-) On the other side it would be a
little more disturbing, as the text would jump back to the beginning ...
