    Hi,
    When im using the hud in raceroom ,most of the data doesn´t update. Gears doesn´t change in the motec (is always in 2nd at 65 kph XD) , race start lights are always on and they don´t switch off... it´s all like bugged. Just few things work well such as relative and tyres.
    Anyone knows how to solve it??

    Turn off the "show all widgets" in otterhud setting. It populates the widgets with static fake data just to allow you to shift them around including the ones that aren't normally always visible (like spotter, start lights etc).

    Since I am not a computer savvy, are there any thoughts on this to be added in the game options itself and choose from there instead of downloading, installing copy/paste in steam, running another program in the background etc etc?

    Since this is something developed by a third-party, no. But no offence mate, but there is no "computer savvy" required here. You download and run Crew Chief, you copy/paste a line of text into Steam just once, and then... it works. If you have the skill to install and run Steam plus computer games, you can install and get this running in under five minutes.

    No offence taken buddy. :)
    Install and run games is just download accept accept. When saw in first page all the copy paste stuff etc got me scared a bit. But will try it.
    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    Is this hud allowed in competitive multiplayer games?

    Yep. All it does is take data already being output by the game itself, and projects it as a transparent web page onto your screen. Nothing nefarious about that and it is functionality that was added by S3 themselves. :)

    This was done in his free time. Perhaps he's moved on or simply can't spare the time anymore.

    In answer to your question, use the time on the position bar for reference. It's generally more accurate than the relative widget for whatever reason.

    I think if they put things as best/last lap and section times would be helpful to players as well.

    Like what? It already does everything most people need and much more, and S3 can't just claim ownership and development rights to Otter's work without his consent anyway.

    What you could do, if you really feel it can be improved further, is learn the relatively simple language these HUDs are programmed in and work on it yourself in your own time.

    As a pc noob i can try, but i'm afraid that this program will be destroyed in less time than it's made

    Actually, anyone can, according to the license.

    Sadly this doesnt seem to be working after the update today.
    It may well be the servers.
