I don't know why I waited this long to use this background mod. I installed it, XTM version, and everything is Beautiful.
However, there is a problem in fog sectors. The triangles appear, basically the same issue in my game as :
Here is the issue:
and, I have artifacts that appear as long streaks. These streaks come and go sometimes when I target another ship. Sometimes when I zoom out they go away.
I'm pretty sure the fog/clouds sectors are the only problem ones. Here's a picture:

I think from reading thru 14 pages of thread that deleting the fog part of the Realspace script would correct the problem; but it is not a simple thing for those of us who don't do modding/scripting. I don't know how to do this (open the mod and delete TBackgrounds). I would hate to have to uninstall this beauty of a mod so soon. As I said I love the no-fog sectors. Could it be possible to have a mod posted somewhere without Tbackgrounds? If not I will try something else. I don't want to just give up.
OK I reinstalled a new X3 directory and put my XTM patch and scrtipt in and then Realspace BG over that. The artifacts "streaks" are gone, so obviously some other mod/script was not working well with Realspace BG. The polygonal fog effect is still there. That is not a killer problem like the streaks but if someone could tell me exactly
how to remove TBackgrounds it would take care of the fog. If you say "open the mod" I need to know what program to open it with, for instance. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
