Hey Folks!
WOW - it's really quiet out here these days......

I picked up one of these when it was a "Stupid Deal of the Day" from Musician's Friend. Yup, the enclosed manual sucks. I went straight to YouTube & found several helpful videos. Still one thing I can't figure out - how do I slow down the speed that the "scenes" change using the text function??
Hope someone out here has an answer.

Thanks all!

The info you seek is on pages 18 & 19 of the Scorpion Script users manual. The manual is available as a pdf download from the Chauvet website.

Well, no it isn't. And as I said, I have the manual. There is nothing there that shows how to speed up or slow down the speed that the text changes from one "scene" to another. Example - Happy Birthday Bob - each word is considered a "scene". The light changes rapidly from one word to the next. With that in mind, using the "roll effects" on a single word is useless.
I was thinking that there may be some "press these keys" combination that I am missing.

Are you using the keyboard to control the laser?
Page 18 of the Scorpion Script manual .......
X MOVE Text moves LEFT or RIGHT (arrow keys of keyboard) Use UP or DOWN keys to set speed.
This is from Rev 4 of the manual ..... here's the link to the latest pdf file of the manual -

I personally DO NOT own this fixture but I'm pretty decent with understanding their functionality just from reading the manuals. My texting laser is an X-Laser MobileBeat RGB running QuickShow.

Thank you Nicky for your help!
Yes I am using the keyboard. Looked up the updated manual & have printed.
Have tried it a bit & what I want it to do doesn't work. I'll try it again later.
LOL - yes a $1,200 laser would work better than a $50 one

My, my, my, how prices have changed. When I purchased my X-Laser MobileBeat RGB at the AC Expo, I paid almost $2K for it and another $750 for the QuickShow software, ILDA dongle and 50ft ILDA cable.
