Hello all,
I had some inspiration for a theme the other day, and was able to quickly construct this due to its simplicity.

About this Theme:

1. Regarding the "lack" of text. Obviously, this can be a problem if you have multiple bootable partitions of the same type, i.e. several HFS+ devices listed.

*You can of course use the included alternate font_small file if you'd like to un-hide the respective test. You lose some of the aesthetics, but you gain the appropriate functionality.

2. Regarding the embedded scroll arrows: I liked the idea of both being permanently on the second "options" screen. Also, they imply interaction for me in the first "timeout" screen, voiding the need for the "Press any key to enter startup options" text, which again, is hidden by default. However, this could be a problem in the way your devices happen to be laid out. They could overlap with the arrows. I noticed the overall vertical position of the devices would change depending on how many partitions are listed, and also by the allowed max_devices within the theme.plist. The change seemed independent of each other. You could have only 3 partitions, and have max_devices = 3, then change this to 4, while still only listing 3 partitions, I noticed Chameleon still changed the overall positioning! Strange. (Theme is set for max_devices = 3)

*You could simply use the alternate background.png that does not include the arrows. As well as revert to the alternate device_scroll_next/prev which are not blank. Or you can mess with the theme.plist and adjust: devices_pos_y value. You'll want higher negative values to raise the overall positioning.

Excellent as always, Enzo.  Another theme to go with my default DType selection (also from you of course).  Thanks so much!
