This theme looks superb. SuperMagicom did you get this to run on an RPi3? I compiled AM from source to get the latest fixes but when I choose this as layout and enter the display AM hangs and I will have to restart the Pi.

Yes, I did.  I think I just  updated AM from within the app itself.

You need to ask someone on the forum, I have only windows binaries.

There's an option right inside the Attract Mode settings menu to update.

No mate, I don't mind at all, just leave a note in the comment what you have used so people can find my theme.

I noticed on the Raspberry Pi 3 is that it takes about five seconds to load into the theme after selecting a system.  Not sure if that is a limitation of the Pi hardware or if it's normal behavior given all of the involved theme media.

I use only one system, so I cannot check that. Are your snaps and artwork on the ssd, hdd or sd card?

Everything is on the SD Card (Samsung EVO+).  I did some testing and it's the conveyor that's causing the slow loading.  I might experiment with removing it and expanding the size of the listbox.

I'm also trying this on a Pi3.  It would be really great if there was an option to disable the conveyor especially if it sped things up.  Also I'm on a arcade monitor (800x600) so another useful option would be the font size of the game list.  A slightly bigger font would be helpful in my case.

Really great looking theme.  Thanks.

Wow...that was quick!  Just tested it and big improvement on a 4x3 monitor. I attached an image of what it looks like.  The only issue left is that it is still a bit slow scrolling through the games (on a RaspPi 3).  I think it is because of the flyer.  I tested Robospin and even though the flyer is shown in the background it scrolls very smoothly I think because it delays the loading of the flyer until the scrolling stops.  When I scroll in Silky it seems to be loading it on every one I scroll by.  For example when the flyer is shown and you start scrolling you can see them switch as the text comes scrolling in.

Overall great theme.  Thanks for everything.
