    Hello,

    I don't know if i should post here,

    I have Race 07 and the GTR Evolution expansion on Steam,
    and the LCD dashboard is not displaying in any car i choose.

    Is there some way to fix it?

    I tried to edit the .plr file in userdata

    It shows this:

    Show MoTeC in Cockpit="1"
    In Car Dash="0"

    When i edit the "In Car Dash" to 1and save it,
    the file returns to the default origin.

    Hope you could help me.

    Best regards and a Happy New Year.

    Hello,

    I didn't play Race 07 since 1,5 years, but I can always try to help you.
    Could you make a screenshot of your problem?

    I know that you could freeze the onboard display, maybe that's the problem?

    And I wish you a happy new year too ;)

    Try making the file read-only after editing it.

    Go in Steamapps/common/race07 .... launch Config.exe and check the resolution: it has to be 32bit ... else, with 16bit the motec display doesn't work.

    Else, I cannot remember if key 2 ( Toggle Hud ) only changes display or if it also has a display off as one step of this toggle.

    When playing in full screen, you cannot have a printscreen working on your PC or laptop.
    But if I remember well ( as Race07 isn't installed any longer on my PC ) the screenshot in game may be done as for GTR2 by pressing F12 ... and should be saved in Steam

    Finally I didn't even know I already installed it after my HDD replacement !
    So I started it with the same settings as yours ... and LCD works fine.

    Is it the 1st time you play Race07 ? ... if not, was it working before ?

    It's my first time i play this game,
    it worked when i changed some options on gtr2, it should also work on race 07.
    there maybe need some changes on other files, i think, i don't know.

    IIRC ...as it's been a long time now I didn't race Race07 .... the game on Steam always needed to be started with Steam race07 and not an expansion as GTR Evo or another command as it sometimes caused some problems ... but which ones ? ...I don't know any longer.
