I'm seeing the same problem on my Pi3 also. Lots of white boxes everywhere, no art displayed, everything super laggy. Even text just appears as white blocks. I think that happens when a layout is too intensive for the Pi (maybe out of video memory?). I didn't generate any blurred images. Even when the menu only has ~12 things to display, it does this.

It looks like my theme is not suitable for Pi3 then, that's not good but sadly I have no way to check it since I don't have a Raspberry Pi to play with. If someone can check the theme on a PC or Mac that would clarify if it's a general issue or a Pi related issue. I tried to keep the theme not so heavy but being a two rows grid requires loading and caching of more artwork.

As a side note, does the "Silky" theme work on your setup?

The missing artwork may indicate an issue with the naming of files...  the names have to be identical ("File" does not equal "file" or "FILE" ... they are all different names in the eyes of linux).

Yes, Silky works for me on the Pi. I just tested Arcadeflow on my PC and it works fine there (with the roms/art folders copied from my Pi).

It's a relief to see that AF works on your PC, it's a quite complex theme and although I tried to debug it I might have missed something (I'm not a programmer after all :D) ... I asked about Silky because both themes are based on the same carrier, but AF has a heavy layered surface structure and a wide grid (for two rows scrolling) that might be unfit for the Pi.

I'll check if naming and caps are ok, but developing on a Mac it should be quite like Linux... If I'll get my hands on a Pi (and I'll have some spare time) I'll try it there and see if something can be done.

Is there an option for original layout - the one with square snaps and smaller wheel logo?

Not right now... Maybe I'll have it in the future, I know some like it that way. It shouldn't be much difficult on paper, but it will require a lot of code tweaking because the theme is now built around the idea of horizontal and vertical thumbs.

I'll see what can be done :)

Any updates on raspberry pi3 support? This looks really cool!

Since I don't own a pi3 it's quite difficult to code for it :/ I'm thinking of producing a version that doesn't use surfaces, provided that my guess that surfaces are messing with the pi3 is a good guess :D

I'm uploading here a stripped down version of AF theme that I hope someone can test with a Raspberry Pi and report if it works or not... In this version I stripped most bells and whistles to reduce the number of textures in memory...
