A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic seizures when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. Exposure to certain patterns or backgrounds on a television screen or computer monitor, or while playing video games may induce an epileptic seizure in these individuals.
Certain conditions may induce previously undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or epilepsy. These conditions can include emulation accuracy or inaccuracy, computer performance at the time of running MAME, video card drivers, your monitor, and a lot of other factors. If you, or anyone in your family, has an epileptic condition, consult your physician prior to using MAME.
If you experience any of the following while using MAME, IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your physician before resuming use of MAME.
