    1. Fade - Pick this option to fade the RTD as it transitions to the new information.
      1. Adjust duration.  This will impact how fast or slow the transition occurs. (.50 seconds is recommended.)
      2. Add a delay if desired. This will delay the transition for the indicated amount of time.
    2. Scrolls or Flip
      1. Pick the direction for the fade or flip.
      2. Adjust the duration.  
      3. Add a delay if desired.
    3. Blink or Pulsate

      1. Adjust the duration.  
      2. Add a delay if desired.
    4. Highlight- This will briefly change the color or highlight the data after it changes.

      1. Pick the style.
      2. Adjust the duration
      3. Add a delay if desired.
      4. Pick the high light color.

  1. Change the layout's duration to the length of the game.  Do this to prevent the message from looping while an effect is in progress.
