OS - Mac OSX

I'm running a "Generate Favourites" shell script and it works fine, but its running in the background and Attract is frozen during the 10-20 seconds it takes to complete.

Would be nice if it can run on top of Attract Mode and show the user whats happening maybe with Terminal?  Opening the script in terminal works perfect spelling out the process until completion

Any suggestions?

These are the configs.

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.0-3
executable           /bin/bash
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              $HOME/.attract/Attract Mode Setup
romext               .sh
artwork    flyer           $HOME/Attract Mode Setup/boxart
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            $HOME/.attract/Attract Mode Setup/snap
artwork    wheel           $HOME/.attract/Attract Mode Setup/wheel

Many thanks
