Pause emulator feature is neat. Can’t wait to try it. Unique way to solve the problem of pausing and getting screen burn.

It does not work on MAC OS X Mountain Lion... but since version 2.2 it's still usual...  :'(

I guess there will be nobody around here who could provide me with an MA 2.5 for Mountain Lion...  :-[
I love that on my laptop the eyes shine to the Alien every time i access the ssd... :D

When an art miss it shows the previous instead leaving an empty space, I don't like this behaviour.
But I really love AM and the infinite way it can be skinned!
Thanks for this amazing front-end raygun!

attract 2.5.0 image in download section works for me on mountain lion. Do you have any errors in the terminal? I’m launching the start script in the app from the terminal. Had issues in the past.

Have you tried compiling locally?

Edit: I’m too tired. I’m not using mountain lion. I’m on 10.13, whatever that is. These nicknames kill me.

I'm having this same issue. When there's missing artwork, it automatically places a screenshot of the previous game instead of leaving it blank. Haven't seen this issue before with previous builds, including the daily/nightly release just a couple days before version 2.50 was released

macOS 10.13 is High Sierra, the last macOS is 10.14 Mojave, and Mountain Lion is Mac OS X 10.8 :P

iOtero if you try compile locally, let me know your results. I’m curious.

Try this guide. Install Xcode. Install tools. Select it. Install x11 quarts. Symlink it. Then try curling brew. I know I had it installed because I looked back on projects I did during that time and I had imagemagik installed. I remembered having an issue with quartz.

Same bug for me (Windows 10 x64). I'm reverting back to v2.4.1 because v2.5 shows the previous game's artwork if the current one has none. For example, Contra has the flyer of Continental Circus. I hope it will be fixed soon.

EDIT: A fix is in the works https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/499 Great!
