About This File

BackgroundRandomizer is a simple plugin that changes the background of your X-Plane menu every time you open your simulator. It works by scanning a folder for the images you want to use, selecting a random image, and then updates the file used by X-Plane. Next time the simulator is opened the randomly selected image is displayed, so the first time you launch X-Plane with this plugin you may not notice a difference.

Four backgrounds are provided by default, but you can remove those and add your own by putting them in the plugin's image directory!

- X-Plane 11 or 12
- Windows, Mac or Linux

Reverting back to the default image
To revert back to the default image, simply run the X-Plane installer or verify files on Steam. You will be prompted to overwrite changed files, so if you don't want to affect other add-ons, make sure to only overwrite /Resources/bitmaps/interface11/image_background_screenshot_for_stack.png!
