Theme behaviour when returning to Emulationstation

  • Hi, ever since updating to the version where Retroarch shows nicer looking widgets instead of yellow text notifications, I noticed my theme (a modified version of this one) fading in with a gray/white screen for a second when exiting a game and returning to ES. It didn't do this before. Here is a short video to illustrate:

    I tested with another theme and it did the same thing, but the default theme (Carbon) does not, so I expect it to be caused by something within a theme's files or configuration.

    Does anybody know what's causing this? Or is it by design?

    Pi Model: 3B+
    Power Supply used: 5A
    RetroPie Version Used: 4.5.13

    Noticing the same thing myself. My guess is it's the images being loaded one by one but it does look ugly. Not sure if anyone else can confirm this or if a fix is possible.
