Both the startup.png & the fan art lines are removed from the xml file and I'm still receiving that grey screen I even rebooted kodi to see if that was the problem negative??

This removes what you asked only in the startup screen.
If you want to remove the background throughout the skin, that's a different and bigger story!

Also remove "<include>OverlayFull</include>" if you want only to see black.

I've already added more levels of transparency down to 0% in the latest version on Github:

This option will be available in the next official release.

Thanks

I checked out that link. Im going to edit the xml myself and lower the transparency. Thank you so much for the valuable info. I do have 1 more question for you. What would need to be edited to make the border around the icons smaller as well as the bottomn icon label border. Thanks again!!

Hi TGX - Where can you find the startup.png file?

How do I go about changing the file for my own one?

Hi I posted this already in your main skin topic. Sorry to repeat but thought maybe this was the right place. I want to make the startup screen stay for a certain length of time without having to set it in the settings How can I do that?
