I want to be perfectly honest with you. I started rewritting the theme, but in the meantime I got distracted and started experimenting with asynchronous loading of images for AttractMode. I’ve underestimated the complexity of the task and it’s taking longer as I thought it would.
Here’s a little demo and as you can see I load almost 300 snaps in 100ms while preserving smooth 60fps.

I can drop it and finish Ambience, but you have to answer it for yourself, what is more important, finishing my theme, or async image loading for AM ;)

As who can't use most community themes because they're too choppy, this is a thing a beauty. Best of luck finishing it up!

I suffer from chronic health problems as well. It can be very rough.  I hope you feel better soon, mate.

Very good! When will a download version be available? The truth is that I liked this layout a lot.

I am excited for the release of this as well.  Even if it is only partially complete.

It's been a really long time since the original/initial post. I wonder if Oomek is still working on this? ;D

I have spoken to Oomek by private message and he has told me that he currently does not have time to finish it. A shame ... We will have to wait to see what happens later. :-\

Would you consider sharing/releasing it in the state that it was shown? So perhaps others could finish what you started?

Hi.
Since there is still a lot of interest in that theme I could spare some time to finish it to shareable state. The only problem I found today is that Attract Mode 2.6.0 broke Ambience. AM will be crashing on loading Ambience until the regression described here https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/566 gets a fix

In the videos you posted on YouTube it looks amazing just like this one. I am willing to help you if you wish. I don't have much knowledge in programming, but in design or testing I offer myself. :)

Thank you! That's great! If it strains you in any way though; just forget about it.

Just a little update:

I'm digging through those 4000 lines of code. Fixed 90% of things that needed fixing, just 2 bugs left to squash and I'm ready to publish the first beta, so it shouldn't be long.
