As we know we have the option in Kodi to have Multi image background,and i have covered a few builds who use this option and is very effective,But just recently i was asked How do i Decrease the second count on the images changing from one to the next. So for anyone that doesnt know or has ever wonder how to then here is a short tuturial on how to do that very thing.

I will show you on My PC and Kodi 17.3, If you have followed BFK’s Skinning help tutorials then you should no by now that i only use PC, Notepad++ Photoshop and the Texture tool for any modifications i do with in the Kodi xml files

This is a really easy process to achieve and all we need for this one is Notepad++

So you have set all your multi backgrounds and your sat there looking?, But your thinking 1 there to slow OR 2 there to fast at flipping from one to another?

Here we go.

I an using Aeon nox for this so first of all we need to go to our Aeon nox folder and locate our 1080i folder.

For windows it will be c:/users/user name/AppData/Roaming/Kodi/addons/Skin Aeon nox/1080i

For android you will locate this folder here  File Manager/Device/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/addons/skin aeon nox/1080i

Once you are in that folder you will see a bunch of .xml files.

we will be looking for the Default.xml.

Then once we open that file up in Notepad++ we will see the line we need to change


The higher the value the longer 1 image will stay on the screen.

So change as you need

There you have it How easy was that?

Till next time be good and take care.
