Attract Mode Screen Saver

In this guide we are going to show you how to setup a cool video screen saver for attract mode.

Attract Mode Video Screen Saver

Setting this one up is pretty simple. You just need to enter the attract mode “configure”┬ámenu using you assigned hot key. If you have not assigned this key yet you can do so in the controls menu.

Once assigned simply move to the screen saver option in the displays menu.

Configure Attract Mode Screen Saver

Once there simply enable “Movie Collage” to “On” and all other options to “off”. Then set your delay in seconds. This is how long it will take the screen saver to start. We set ours to 800 seconds which is around 14 minutes.
