    The same people that don't want to have to listen to people complain that their OLED is now unusable because of the screen burn-in left from running a GamePack. Hard to protect people from themselves sometimes

    That’s fine but then gives us an option or let us select the time frame. It like 30 seconds right now. I would like 5 minutes and it would be fine.

    im sure that would be a quick fix. I turn my zen off when I’m not using it via usb switch with power button.

    Even with controller input, the screensaver activates. Which is an issue on the apex script, because with weapon swap enabled it frequently goes off track, i need to visually be able to check if it has the right weapon selected. Is there any way around this you know of?

    Any issues with pro packs go into pro pack section, and issues with community packs go into the corresponding community pack.

    Screen saver is on pro pack. Can we please add a feature to turn it on or off?

    It should be included and OLED burn in is a problem. However it should only activate after there has been no controller input for a set amount of time.

    The device itself was poorly designed to not shut off when not in use. It shouldnt be up to a gamepack creator, it should be in the device firmware. Most USB port supply power when not in use. So we should either unplug the unit, stressing the USB port, or buy an external switch to kill power to protect a device from itself??

    I use this and it’s perfect . Simple button press and it’s off. (Well 2 buttons since this uses 2 cables. ) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The screen does automatically shut off. If you load a script/gamepack that doesn't do anything to the OLED...the screen does black after a few seconds. The burn-in is happening because the script/gamepack has written to the OLED and there's no code to clear the screen or have a screen saver of sorts kick in. So that image/text will continue to be displayed until you unload the game pack. Then the Cronus Logo will be display briefly before it shuts off.

    Ah, so if the gamepack were to just set a timeout and if no input was received in that window, just clear the screen it would almost be better than a screensaver it sounds like.

    The option is in the Global Mods. Select it to get to the sub menu (with anti-recoil mode, profile switch mode, and finally "Weapon Profile Features".

    The Screen Saver was implemented to prevent further LED burning to the OLED screen. Every time you swap your weapon you will be able to see the idle screen for an amount of time. seeing as weapons are switched so often, making this a long time would essentially be useless because the time limit will never be reached during gameplay and would end up burning in the screen anyway.

    One way to check which profile you are using is to check the colour of the Zen Eyes (Green = Primary, Red = Secondary).

    first, I want to say thank you for your hard work, this pack is awesome.

    i agree about the screensaver and it working, that’s a great idea. But can we increase the time to 3 minutes before it kicks in? I think right now it’s like 15 seconds which is extremely short.

    I've increased it to 30 seconds.
