This theme called "Chicuelo Mix" is a port of Chicuelo's excellent theme for Emulation Station called "Chicuelo". All the credit for the theme goes to Chicuelo, its his baby. I have ported this theme to Attract-Mode and as a token of appreciation/ respect to original author I have tried my level best to keep the port as close to original as possible. There are some changes which I had to make due to differences between working of Attract-Mode and Emulation Station but the aim of v1.0 was to mimic the original in function and artwork as closely as possible. That is why I have not used any artwork in places where it was missing.

A couple of things remain to be ironed out before I put the theme for download. This video displays all artwork of Main Menu, Platforms Menu and System Menu.

Checking two on_transition functions on Chicuelo Mix.

1- Arrows Blink effect on transition

2- More interesting, Video overlay on snaps also on_transition. Ideally would need snap and video to match. I know we can do the same via [emulator].cfg but I wanted to do it purely through layout.

(PS: Thanks to Keil who helped a *lot* in coding of arrow effect & thanks to liquid8d whose code I modified for Video overlay)
