Thanks!

PS. Noticed that v1.6.2 doesn't go full screen automatically (I need to press ESC on the keyboard) when used with Instant Sheller.

FYI, I've noticed an issue when switching from Fullscreen/Fill Screen/Windowed mode in Windows - it seems nothing from the layout is redrawn, although if you press ESC you can see the exit message - even that appears to be at the wrong resolution to not fit on the screen.

If anyone else can confirm this, we'll need to submit an issue.

I can confirm that I'm having the same (or similar) problem with OSX. After change from FILL to WINDOW and in oposite direction - I'm getting blank (black) screen. If I switch back and forth to another theme, everything is ok.

This sounds like it is related to the issue I reported here
https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/164

Try launching attract mode from the command-line:
create a shortcut to attract mode, call it "start attract mode"
right click on it -> properties, then change "target" to "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /C Attract.exe"
and "start in" to your attract mode folder path, for me it was "P:\Attract Mode"

Launch Attract mode by double clicking the shortcut.

I'm having the same issue.  Very strange as I got a shortcut to run correctly once, but now can't seem to get it to run altirra correctly.  1.60 works fine.  Hope this can be fixed with next version.
