I use Attract Mode on my Macbook Pro with Retina display, resolution is 2560x1600.

I developed my own theme, Arcadeflow, it adapts to every resolution, but bear in mind that if you run it at "native" 2560x1600 it will struggle a bit because of the shaders used. Maybe if you have a powerful GPU then you won't see slowdowns at all (on a three years old Quadro card it runs flawlessly at 1920x1200). To allow it to run on lower spec machines I added an option to artificially reduce the resolution of some surfaces...

You have to unzip the layout in the Layout folder inside Attract Mode folder. You'll have Layouts/Arcadeflow/files from the archive. The archive is in tar-gzip format, you should be able to unpack it using 7zip, don't know if windows natively support tgz archives...
