    I dont believe so, but we should wait for someone who knows more about the capability of themes like yellows8 to weigh in.

    As far as I know, the closest you can get to animated themes in Yata+ is using the option that let's you to make themes such as the default system ones or the Ace Attorney Mood Matrix one.

    I don't see it imposible. I mean, as it's said, there are themes with animated top screen. BTW, there must be limits for it, and maybe straght ones...

    Yea, Mood Matrix theme would be the best for animated themes.

    Those images should be simple black and white png files, 64x64, rotated.
    For that example theme I used these pictures, left one for the "Top" and right one for the "Top screen 'SIMPLE' Background":

    Um, no?
    Sorry, I don't really understand the meaning of term "tiled", can you explain it? :P
    If you will try, you'll understand how to make this kind of theme, it's not hard.
    BTW, here is information about these textures from Yata+:

    the same image over and over again next to each other. Or can i just import a .gif file into the 3ds theme and have it run normally.

    Ah! Well, you don't have to make "full size" 512x256 texture filled with that image, it should be just single static 64x64 pic.

    By the way, there are more animated themes, not only Mood Matrix and simple color ones.
    Those are two Japanese themes "Gunma's Ambition" and "Nemuneko Friends - Song To Match".
    There is one more animated theme - "MH4U Gore & Seregios" but that one has only moving "Top" texture, it doesn't have "simple background".
