i use my plugin.image.artistmultifanart as a Image Folder

I read somewhere on the forum that multiimage control will get refreshed when path to images will change,
so i write my plugin to use it with params like this
plugin://plugin.image.artistmultifanart/?name=$INFO[MusicPlayer.Artist]

Can I do something similar with screensaver.xbmc.builtin.slideshow

Unfortunately no.

I wish the same for my Big Pictures Addon - but the screensaver settings dialog can only browse physical folders - not plugin's VFS.

But you can manual edit the screensaver's addon_data/.../settings.xml to use it - then it works.

Thanks! I didn't knew that (I also used the Reputation button Smile).
So i wanted to help you but instead you solved one of my problems - fine.

Now i get your problem, but can't answer. I guess the folder is resolved on screensaver start - but not re-resolved on artist-change, correct?

yes

you see this is working in multiimage control
<control type="multiimage">
..
<imagepath background="true">plugin://plugin.image.artistmultifanart/?name=$INFO[MusicPlayer.Title]</imagepath>
..
</control>

in screensaver.xbmc.builtin.slideshow even if i manualy edit the screensaver's addon_data/.../settings.xml to
<setting id="path" value="plugin://plugin.image.artistmultifanart/?name=$INFO[MusicPlayer.Title]" />

i have all time first folder
you need to press the button on the remote to refresh Tongue
