It's broke due to changes made by thegamesdb.net. https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/532

That's weird, it was working for me just yesterday. I've had that error a few times last week using Attract Mode and then it would work a few hours later. I think it works depending on the time of the day, also might help if you're not scrapping for too much at a time. When I try to get scrapers for just a few newly added games by just putting those in the roms folder it tends to work just fine.
