Disable Automatic Launch
« on: December 08, 2018, 12:09:24 PM »
Hi, I'm sure this has been asked before, so I apologize... I searched the forums and couldn't find an answer.

When I launch attract mode and the system sits idle, attract mode will eventually launch the game that it is pointing to on the menu.  How do I disable this feature? 

Thanks,

Jim

I haven’t noticed this. What layout and plugins are you using?

It's a pre-made image that uses Robospin vertical.  No plugins are active.

The funny thing is ... I don't believe it launched the games automatically when I first started using the image.  Not sure whether I mistakenly activated an option... or whether something else is causing this behavior.

The issue has something to do with the screensaver function.  When I disable the screensaver, the system stops launching the game automatically.

It doesn’t happen automatically. I believe your pressing the select button. Which makes sense if your in basic movie or rgb mode. I see a game I like in the screensaver? Select and away I play. Want to return to the layout? Hit any other key.
