Hi MachoMan22,
 
I've made another update to try to fix the issue you have reported.  Would you mind testing the build of attract-mode linked below and let me know your results?  Make sure you set the "Window Mode" to "Fill Screen (Default)" when testing this out.  Thanks!

(Not directly related to thread, sorry)

Hi, I was facing a different problem of AM screen blinking once when starting or changing focus back to AM (like exiting emulator or alt-tabbing) on Win 8.1 x64, the blinking problem persisted on all window modes. The AM file linked here fixes that issue. Please incorporate the fixes in upcoming releases. Thanks!

Can I keep using this fixed version instead of regular 2.5.1 or wait for an official release? I also made a bug fix request #487 about the flickering/ blinking issue.

If its win 10 theres a setting in Registry...

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > CONTROL PANEL > DESKTOP > FOREGROUNDLOCKTIMEOUT

Change the value of foregroundlocktimeout to 0 and that solved the problem for me.  The window was popping under instead of over and this fixed it.

I had an issue with any version after attract-v2.4.0-win64 AttactMode would not switch to GroovyMAME correctly.

I downloaded and tested attract-v2.5.1-1-win64b and it works fine.

Thankyou Raygun.
