Congratulations with the purchase of the CIB Club Info Board!


Getting started

The product you received is 'boxed'. Rez the box by dragging it from your inventory onto an empty spot in world.
Left click the box to open it's content and do copy all to inventory. Take care not do this procedure with the actual products, because then you will end up having all scripts inside your inventory and not functioning products.
You will now have a folder in your inventory called: [SHX-CIB-T50] or [SHX-CIB-T20]

Rez the board by dragging it out of the inventory onto an spot in-world.


Modifying the text

We have made our own script interpreter to make text modifications easy and available to anyone. With just 16 commands you can control how to display the text, change color/font etcetera.

The board makes use of one notecard, called: "Commands". This is the card that contains the shx script commands. Edit this notecard to change the text you want to display.

The SHX script commands article explains how to use the shx scripts in a SRC receiver, however it does differ a bit from the commands available for the CIB series.

Listed below are the 16 commands available in the CIB boards.

Available commands:

setfont;x  - x = 0 = normal, 1 = copperplate, 2 = usuzi, 3 = halo, 4 = veras, 5 = veras bold, 6 = matrixed, 7 = eras bold, 8 = kara ben
cleartext - clear the text on the display
showtext - show the text (set with settext or centertext)
hidetext - hide text
settext;txt  - set (txt) text on the display
wait;secs   - wait (secs) seconds
color;r,g,b  - set the color in R,G,B
fadein  - fade the text in
fadeout  - fade the text out
scrolltoright  - scroll the text to the right (Only after scrolltoleft!)
scrolltoleft - scroll the text to the left (Only when the text is larger then 50 chars!)
flash;secs  - flash the text for (secs) seconds
centertext;txt  - set (txt) text on the display
scrollinright  - scroll the text from right to left (coming in at the right)
scrollinleft - scroll the text from left to right (coming in from the left)
stop - stop rotating this script

Scroll example:

Jerky text - Lag

Since you modify the commands, you have control on how intensive this device operates in terms of script time.
Changing the text at high speed, or using the scroll functions will make it use a large amount of script time, therefore negatively contributing to 'lag' in the region.
If the region you are in is experiencing 'script lag', the board will not display the expected results, have a jerky display or be skipping text.
Make yourself aware what you are doing and take care to read: preventing-lag on how to keep the region healthy and your visitors happy.
