Are you also asking if the scrolling can come in from the right? 

what I'm thinking is like since the game has ... and you can't see the rest of the name it moves to the left so that the rest of the name can be seen and one it reaches the end it moves back to the right if thats even possible.

The purpose of my scrolling text was to replicately a ticker tape that loops.  Once the last letter goes off the screen it starts from the beginning.    i know the default canned version scrolls vertically up and then back down.  if you are looking to accomplish a similar effect horizontally i wonder if that is a question for Jason.  I believe this  may be as simple as passing a parameter into the current method he wrote.
