That part I knew. Was just looking to see if you have a more specific idea. Cannot promise anything due to time constraints since this will have to be manually coded and work/life has me pretty busy. The overall theme design and any images I use will come from this theme so credit to @Juketsu for his work on the theme. If he has not objections I will post if I can get one done.

I thought of something like the theme simple detailed, only with the colors and design attached to the pulse theme

So got some free time this morning before my 5am conference and got something going. Was able to get a bit more time just a bit ago and got this far. I used the TextGamesView of the BB theme as the design since it fit most with the Pause Menu and needing a text list. Alignment of elements is pretty close to the BB theme. The glows animate like the theme. Game play image is used as currently videos in Pause themes do not work correctly. Something the devs are aware of. So a concession was made to use game play image. Also font size on the "Game Paused" is larger. Just looked odd smaller. Tested on a 16:9 and 4:3 screen and layouts work. My 4K is busted so I cannot test against any other monitor right now. 

Only gripe is when your Pause menu does not have a lot of items we have a large amount of dead space. You can see this difference in the two images. However, it is better than no theme to use.

BB Theme Text View:

Oh now you are just getting greedy. 🤣 I am joking of course. I will try and get that going as well. May be a bit (probably about a week) as I have a work project to tend to.

WoW great work, is impressive

Can you share this pause screen files please??

 

Thanks, but the real credit goes to @Juketsu for the visual style of the theme. I do not have that sort of creativity. I am just happy I have taught myself enough coding to be able to replicate his design. It will be a bit longer before I post. Need to clean up some code and refine a few minor things.

Messing around with the Startup and Shutdown.

BB Theme Image as reference:

BB Theme Original.png

Startup and Shutdown theme so far:

The "Loading" and "Exit" text fade in/out and the blue glows animate as well like in the BB theme. Still got a lot of cleaning up. @IxMasterxI will send you a copy to test once I get to that point.
