Best way to implement a dot-matrix scroller?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Does anyone have a good way to implement a dot-matrix scroller? I''ve been considering either creating pictures of each character (using dots) and storing them in a surface, blitting them out onto the screen when needed, or actually making a simulation of a "real" dot-matrix device, in that I send to it an array of bytes (00 for "off", FF for "on") and it "lights" the appropriate dots on the display matrix already on the screen. Which sounds better?
