Bring your XMB to life! Heartbeat is the only theme to this date that features background that changes color depending on the menu you are in. Click here to see a small preview.
I must say, this theme has a hell of a story behind it. A good month ago I came up with the idea of having a background that changes colors. I knew multiple ways of pulling this off, but needed a theme to put this effect in. I started off with a dock. Well it didn't look very nice. I can't make docks for my life. Then I tried another dock...memory problems galore. Well then this guy, simulacrum, made a concept image of a theme that looked strikingly similar to my latest revision of heartbeat (at the time I called Colors of Life). He couldn't actually make themes, so I told him I'd make the theme for him. Well I couldn't make it pixel for pixel, but it is mostly the same. Every hour or so I'd run into memory problems. So every hour I had to change the ENTIRE theme. Then the alignment of every single damn icon almost made my pull out my hair. I'm not too happy about some of the things I had to change (like subicon size to half), but I pulled it off.
For XMB creators, I'll have a tutorial on how to recreate the background color effect within a day. You should be able to find the link in my signature when its done.
The theme comes in a color and no color version (meaning the background doesn't change). If you are using the color version, it doesn't work as well with vivid wallpapers. Dull colored wallpapers and grayscales work great.
