Tutorial: How to search for games in Attract Mode

Post by UnsungHero » Wed Jan 11, 2017 10:18 am

Enabling the ability to search for a specific game, using the built-in "KeyboardSearch" plugin that comes with attract mode. A nice way to quickly filter games on the active display.



Steps to take:
1. Open the Attract Mode Config menu
2. Select the "Plug-Ins" menu
3. Enable the "KeyboardSearch" plugin
4. Under "Trigger" select "Custom1"
5. Go back to the Configure menu and select "Controls"
6. Scroll down and select the "Custom1" control
7. Select "Add Input", to bring up the input selection prompt
8. Press your desired input (I used select + another button) to map it to Custom1
9. You can now trigger the KeyboardSearch plugin by pressing the desired input (from any display in Attract Mode)
