Styles

You can modify the background colors for all parts of the scoreboard. Text will be white or black based on which color is more readable on your chosen background color.

Changing Colors

Click in either form field to open a color picker. Move the picker around until you find the right color. Or, enter a hex code yourself.

Logos

Gather team logos on your scoreboard machine and use them on the scoreboard. Logos names must match the team names sent by FinishLynx. The image can be any web-safe image type (png, jpg, gif).

For example, if the team name is "Madison HS", Madison HS.png, Madison HS.jpg, or Madison HS.gif will work.

To enable logos, check Show Logos and select the directory that contains your logos.

Horizontal ONLY: Check "Show Wind AND/OR Combined Points" to show one or both on the scoreboard.
