    VERY early image...



    wondering if anyone would actually be interested in a Matrix (Matryx) theme?
    Yes its animated... they "fall" down fading out.. repeating at different times.
    So far so good... its just very complicated to write the SVG for it.

    Sooo.. before I continue - anyone?
    borockster and sunflwr50 like this.

    yes, the clock will be bigger lol.. Im just trying to get the animation looking as good as possible. This is all hand coded and NOT a GIF. it wont be perfect because of the limits... BUT this will be wallpaper friendly

    lol - i have the first "layer" done... im not sure how many i can have going before it kills performance? I only have 13 images that make up the characters... and randomly use them in the "lines"... 26 'lines' running smooth. I am attempting to double that to 52 to give it more depth... I may be able to do 52 on the torch... worried more about the storm getting killed lol

    I have VERY high expectations for this theme! I've been hoping a more known developer would take the RED pill and really do something amazing theme wise!

    The Matrix Trilogy is in my personal all time favorite movies and it really paved the way for special effects! I've been waiting for someone to use that same principal in a Matrix theme for the BlackBerry! I've seen some decent ones on other platforms and even a few attempts on our platform. Nothing that really stood out like the Matrix Trilogy tho!

    StaticFX, I've seen you around the net and seen (and downloaded) plenty of your work! I know you got some skills for sure! The high expectations thing isn't something I'd take personal because I know that this theme is going to be sick!

    Lemme know when it's available to test out and or purchase! Whatever comes first haha

    ive been running the homescreen on my S2 all weekend. It chugged on it for the first few minutes (getting settled in i guess lol) but its now running very smooth. So, i can now start on the icons and figuring out what to do on the homescreen for the icons.

    any suggestions for the homescreen icon appearance.. just toss it out here.

    its turning out to be quite a task to create the icons...

    Icons are not very sharp/clear.
    The contrast is not enough.

    m.seif - i agree.. im trying a few different things. I like them.. but not completely.

    The problem is when I make the icon and the squish it to fit... it looses the "code" detail. still playing.

    This theme will take a while. Takes almost ten minutes on each reload of the svg because of the way it creates the code falling... lol

    update:

    First shows current homescreen (battery is yellow because its plugged in)
    second shows the icons dropping down out of the code..
    third shows them done.



    tapping above them makes them go back up.. fading out
