Big Box scrolling through games rapidly when system is idle

Recommended Posts

Hey all -

I'm 99.99% set up with Big Box and I love it!  However, I'm having an issue when the system is idle (in this case on my default playlist, in the list of games).  Without fail, after sitting idle for a minute or two, the system will start scrolling rapidly through the list of games as if the joystick were held down.  I thought it might be a bad joystick, so I disconnected them, and it still happened.  I then thought maybe a keyboard key was stuck, so I disconnected it and the mouse.  The scrolling is still happening.  Any ideas?

That is attract mode, a feature that randomly shows games after a set period when idle. It can be toggled on/off in the options, as well as other options for it if you leave it turned on.

Hmmm I thought I turned it off in options, but boy would I feel stupid if I didn't.  Sheesh.  Is it normally lightning fast?

Yes, it randomly scrolls and stops on a game, waits for a time that you specify then scrolls again to another random game.

Mother effer that was it.  Sorry to have wasted your time man, I could have sworn I checked that.  At least I didn't disassemble my entire cabinet to rewire the joystics hahahaah (looks around nervously as he grabs a screwdriver)
