Even lighter than MegaLight theme?

Postby KillerQ » Sat Mar 07, 2009 3:45 pm

Hey all,

I have an idea, and wondered if it would be difficult for someone to whip it together (if it seems like a good idea, that is).

Now, many people (even with VERY powerful computers) prefer the Megalight theme since tends to run smoother and be less distracting.

Now, I was thinking.... How about a theme that is even lighter....

-No words on the screen
-No special neck transitions
-No special sounds attached to starpower, etc
- No crowd sounds other than those built-in to the songs
-No glowing
-No real animation (other than the notes, and note-hit confirmation)
-Nothing extra 3D
-Just the bare minimum....

Any more suggestions to tone (PUN intended) this theme down for efficiency?

I wonder just how basic and smooth we could make this... I know many of these options can be disabled in the settings, but creating a theme that doesn't even add them in the first place may make it even better.

It would be interesting to see just how smooth scrolling, and fluid we could make this bad-boy! Anyone in?
Just a thought.


Later,

Matt!

Estemshorn,

Thanks for looking into it, and let me know if you have any questions. The only suggestion I really have it use the rectangular-shaped notes (like rockband) since they work the best for both drums AND guitar.

Thanks,

Matt!
