Please add an option for the background image to stay:
1) for the whole turn;
2) for the whole mission.
The image changing in the middle of enemy turn is somewhat disconcerting.

I would personally prefer option 1 (changing at the start of player's turn, or similar), but I expect people to have different goals.

this is the current behavior

that doesn't happen, or at least I don't know how it could... background is reset only at the start of player's turn, or when game is loaded from a save

Ah, it's perfect, then.
Sorry about the confusion, I guess either my knowledge was outdated, or something else went wrong on my end.

... but I expect people to have different goals.

Added entry in options.cfg: oxceHiddenMovementBackgroundChangeFrequency

0 = change only on load
1 = change every turn (default value)
2 = change on 2nd, 4th, 6th, etc. turn
3 = change on 3rd, 6th, 9th, etc. turn
etc.

Players can change it manually in options.cfg, no GUI.
Modders can use fixed options to force a certain value.
