busydialogdelayms advancedsettings alternative.
Being <busydialogdelayms>integer</busydialogdelayms> no longer is an option is there an equivalent anyone knows of? The spinner uses way too much CPU.

RE: busydialogdelayms advancedsettings alternative.
"busydialogdelayms" is still supported in current Kodi master (Helix):

Terminal
anepu:xbmc master u= anaconda$ grep -nr busydialogdelayms xbmc/
xbmc//settings/AdvancedSettings.cpp:700: XMLUtils::GetInt(pElement, "busydialogdelayms", m_videoBusyDialogDelay_ms, 0, 1000);
anepu:xbmc master u= anaconda$ grep -nr busydialogdelayms ../xbmc-gotham/xbmc/
../xbmc-gotham/xbmc//settings/AdvancedSettings.cpp:708: XMLUtils::GetInt(pElement, "busydialogdelayms", m_videoBusyDialogDelay_ms, 0, 1000);

I don't really know why they say it was removed in Gotham. It wasn't.

It expects milliseconds though. Make sure it's inside "video" too, e.g.:
Code:
<advancedsettings>
    <video>
        <busydialogdelayms>2000</busydialogdelayms><!-- 2 seconds -->
    </video>
</advancedsettings>

I hadn't tried it in RC3, I was told it was disabled.

Thanks for pointing out that it isn't.

RE: busydialogdelayms advancedsettings alternative.
It slows down showing busy dialogs (spinners) freeing up valuable CPU resources, it allows anything that uses this to load faster.
