Where to find information about autoscroll.lua?

I have looked on these forums and on the Wohlstand wiki but I haven't found documentation about what does autoscroll.lua do, and how it works. How can I learn about this function? Is there a custom level where this type of autoscroll is used?

I'd really like to know this, too.

I'm STILL waiting to find this answer.
I have SMBX 1.3, 1.4, AND 2.0.
1.3 seems to be the only one I can get Autoscrolling to work properly in, but it's so outdated.
I wish we could have the ease of use of 1.3, with the Powerups & custom NPC's of 1.4, but with the extra characters & multi-window editing of 2.0 all in ONE application.
*sigh*

I don't think 1.3 editor was friendly to use when it comes to making a level with a custom tileset, it's more of going back and forth than having the tileset at your disposal, there is actually a option to use the 1.3 editor layout in 2.0's PGE Editor, if you choose to. Autoscrolling still works, you probably aren't setting it right, and you could also use PixelPest's Easy Lunalua for easy autoscrolling if you find it a hassle. Some NPCs from 1.4 will be ready for use in 2.0 like the Chucks and Fire Bros, you should check out Beta 4 when it releases, as for new powerups, they aren't really super important for gameplay and are just a buffer to make your episode stand out, but we will see some more in a future version.

In SMBX2 you can use autoscrolling through events just like you would in SMBX 1.3.... as for autoscroll.lua, to answer this question better late than never, you can take a look in the lua file to find the functions it provides, with appropriately named arguments, if I remember correctly. The most common and straightforward use is autoscroll.scrollRight(speed).
