Just a quick query... I've had attract mode set up for a while now with no major problems, except something has just broken out of the blue with no changes made to break it. Go figure... I'm hoping this is a pretty obvious fix.
So, I'm running attract mode in the default fill screen mode. I've got a number of different machines on there, from steam to MAME to some old consoles, some using MAMEUI, some not.
Anyway, here's my problem: with MAME, and only MAME, when I quit out of a game attractmode doesn't get Focus back. Attract Mode is there, frozen, and the focus is instead on the windows taskbar (which I have set to automatically hide). With every other thing focus is handed back fine - be that Street Fighter 4 or 5 through Steam, NullDC for Dreamcast, Dolphin for Gamecube - they all play nice. This problem is specific to MAME. It's easily fixed with a quick alt-tab, but that's not ideal, obviously.
My attract mode settings seem to be fine - fill screen, console hidden, etc. Whats more, this worked with MAME previously, so this problem is new. It used to be fine. Any ideas? Any work-arounds? Thanks all!
