Kent-

Nice theme man, but it seems somewhat sluggish to me. You might be able to optimize it by making some aspects of the art smaller. Maybe, have a big snap but flyers and other arts smaller. Though, that probably changes the look and feel you want. You could also try reducing some of the arts alpha levels as well. I learned this the hard way when making my themes. Especially, when I used a lot of art and if it was big. Just something to think about.

Could you post your screen here ? Please also provide your resolution and monitor size. Thanks

I am using 24" monitor and 1920 x 1080. It is ok for me.

I have the same size as you, and running 1080p as well. It's not that bad when you transition from one selection to the next, but more so when you hold down to scroll through the list is where it kinda slows down just a tad.

Update... OK, so it seems that I'm just use to my spin wheels and noticed a slight slow down. But, nothing to get into huff about. I compared the scrolling to robospin and it was about 3 seconds or so faster. I think it was just enough for me to notice a difference. Anyway, if nobody else is complaining about it then who the hell am I to complain.  :)

Cool layout kent.  I've been playing around with it a bit here and I find it is a bit slow for me as well when I hold down the button to scroll.

I've switched to "listbox only" mode and made a couple tweaks to your layout.nut to speed things up for me here.  The main change was to have the artworks only reload on the end of a navigation instead of with each selection change.  I've attached my changes in case you're interested...

Oh and I'm planning on adding this to the windows package for release 2.0, I hope you don't mind!

Yeah, I forgot to mention to try using "object.trigger = Transition.EndNavigation;" for your fe.artwork and fe.image functions. I do this will all my layouts as well.

Honestly, I thought the last update you did was a bit faster and fine. It's just a hair slower. Also, just a suggestion, I would probably have an option to turn off the attract-mode logo or at least change the alpha settings. I think that would help with the aesthetics too.  IMHO...

Please try it again. I have removed the loading animation and alpha setting of Genre_image.

Could you also provide your setting to me for reference. Thanks.

Update to 2.6.2. I have separated with 2 layouts. One supports 4:3 and one supports wide screen. You may download both from post #1  :)

Awesome theme.

The only problem I have is when I enable the CRT effect there is a diagonal effect on the movie being played.  As you can see from the screenshot the top diagonal portion has a purple tint and the bottom diagonal portion has a light greenish tint.

I'm not sure, but this might be a video card issue.
I'm using an AMD Radeon HD 6970.

Wondering if anyone else is having this issue.
