    Just finally started using the webhud. It's such an awesome feature to have all these apps at your disposal. I wish this was the case for other sims. AC sort of set the benchmark early on for things we should be able to access during a race and have it all placed exactly how we want.

    I've skipped though the thread hoping to find out if there was ever a keybind issued to show/hide the HUD? I race in VR and really only use the HUD info every now and then, never have it showing full time. I am fine with using a joy2key like program to get the keybind from the keyboard to the rim, but having to use the mouse out on track to show/hide isn't very practical for people who only use the HUD at certain times.

    Have n't heard of that until now: it looks awesome! I think the "wheel and pedals icon" (at least) should be integrated into the original hud. The only downside of this hud is that you have to run the dash.exe first and then the game. So 2 moves are needed..

    I posted this before somewhere I think, anyway you can launch both the hud and raceroom and most anything else you like in one move using a bat file. Just make a bat file somewere on your computer add a shortcut to your desktop add the raceroom .ico icon to the shortcut so it looks nice nice and your good to go. You could just leave the bat file on your desktop, but the icon kind of looks crappy.

    Just change the path from the code below, to match your hud/game installations. If you want to start another program just add another line, with the correct path to the desired exe.


    @Echo off

    start /d "D:\Racing Games\RaceRoom Racing Experience\dash" dash.exe

    start /d "D:\Portables\Steam\steamapps\common\raceroom racing experience\Game" RRRE.exe

    It works. It was the only thing that bothered me.

    FPS is normal now. Thanks for HUD! :)

    I have tried twice to install the HUD however in both cases I ruined my RaceRoom installation and had to reinstall the whole game twice, obviously something I am not doing it how it should be done and I am desperate to make it.

    Can I please anyone in here who would like to be nice enough to join me on Team Viewer for 10mnutes and solve this thing for me?

    Hover your mouse over what ever item you like, and use the scroll wheel to resize it.

    Just started to use Otterhud, and it's great, but I have run into a problem.
    I create a quick race with practice, and no qualify and no warmup.
    I run pratice and everything is working. When I skip session to race, the game freezes. The HUD writes "Game paused", but it's freezed.
    Do any of you have the same problem, and can it be solved?

    I have a wireless mini keyboard and a logitech k400 plus wireless both scroll the same swiping two fingers up/down using the touchpad. I don't know that they all work the same, but that is how mine work.

    Couldn't you just make a seperate profile with all widgets deactivated?
