Is there a frontend program that has a setting to jump
into a gamerom attract mode on power up?

I googled, but couldn't come with an answer.

Thanks,

If your MAME version supports command line options you might add it to
one of the startup locations for system boot. Also tell the game to skip
the disclaimer.

MAME Classic will launch a game upon start-up. The game will then go into
attract mode.

I seem to recall there is a MAME screensaver that cycles through random
attract modes as well. I also seem to recall that you could then invoke
the game directly from the screensaver if you so desire. It's not a
frontend per se but it might work for what you're looking for.
Screensavers can be added to the startup group to launch on boot if
that's what you're looking for as well.

Anybody remember what screensaver that is? Am I remembering right?
