Alright, question:

Can I have a theme that has both a PSS effect (ProSlideShow) and the animated window effect? You know, that little window at the bottom right of the screen...

I fit's possible, I understand that I have to make two diferent .RAF files, but can those two connect under one .XML and then compile the theme with no problems?

If you want a Multi-Dynamic theme where one theme is a ProSlideshow and the other is an Animated Window then yes you can do that easy.
Create the 2 RAFs.
In the theme's XML (in the folder with the icons) alter the 'bgimagetable' to look similar to this:

This is just an example. You can rename the RAF to whatever you want. You don't have to change the extension to JPG. Make sure the names match the files. Compile as you normally would.
Doing this will most likely make your theme more than 15mb. You won't be able to upload it here. That's why I upload the 2 themes separate with a link to the MDT in the description like I did with my Man Of Steel themes.

What exactly do you want to do?

Um, I have uploaded a theme here, waiting for confirmation. Then, I want to make a similar theme to that, but add the Animated Window cause the theme that will appear here is currently PSS only.

What I am trying to say is, I had two versions of this theme in my mind. One of them has been uploaded, and I want to take the second one (second one would normally be PSS, but with different wallpapers) and add the Animated Window. Same project, same style but different wallpaper and Animated Window added.

Case in point, I want to see how I want to add a second .RAF file to one theme and I don't think there is a guide up here which shows how to combine the PSS and the Animated WIndow.

So you want the PSS to show in the window? or do you want them to play one after the other in a cycle without XMB reboot? Something like this http://www.ps3-themes.com/art-.....-plus.html but with PSS and Animated Window

Boy, I cannot form sentences today.

Okay, take that theme in the link for instance. Imagine that, but also add an Animated Window which shows video footage. You keep the PSS in the fullscreen with the wallpapers changing, but you also add an Animated Window that shows maybe 5-6 seconds of video footage.

Can these two be combined effectively?

Aaaaahhhh I see what you want. So while the backgrounds are changing a window is always there with a video in it. I don't think we can do that.

I imagine that can probably be done with code. That's Faxtron and GlowBall's department. Don't hold your breath for that thoughLaugh

Well yeah, cause I suck at coding.....it takes me 15 mins to do what they do in 3 mins. Bleh, and I had high hopes. Oh well, I guess I will shift my focus on a different style.

Bummer >_>

I'm not the best at it either. I understand it and everything. I can look at it and see what part of the code is doing what, but I just can't seem to put it together myselfFrownLaugh

EDIT: Those emoticons make me look bipolar, lol

Well, now I am working on another theme, busting my head to make it unique.

I hope it works....
