[edit] Pre-Programmed Messages (Schedules)

The Matrix Display scoreboards (HDD/Daktronics) can play animations and pre-set messages. Refer to the software that came with your scoreboard for instructions on creating and installing these messages.

  • Moscore QM can run schedules that have been programmed into Matrix Display scoreboards. To test this functionality use the Start Schedule and Stop Schedule buttons.
  • Selecting the Use Schedule Instead of Clock will start the schedule whenever the clock would normally start.
  • If your scoreboard uses the Daktronics V1500M2 controller, you must choose which schedule to start using the Schedule drop down
  • Display Message allows you to display a single message. You must type in the name of the message or select it from the dropdown list (if available)
