    Has anyone figured out how to fix the White screen of death while using outer hud? This would make me very happy if someone could fix this

    Well, is Crewchief working for you? Did you set up the launch parameter in Steam?

    Do you see a box in the top left corner while you are driving? Can you make a screenshot of your Steam launch parameters?

    Hi! First of all thank you for all the work, this hud is really great! Just an info, I would use a button on my wheel to show/hide the hud, is there a way I could bind it?

    The configuration seems to be correct. Are you always running CrewChief? If yes, you could try not running it and only running dash.exe instead.

    Are you running any other software in the background? Maybe something is blocking the port being used by dash.exe / CrewChief.

    You setup crewchief wrong
    It is not "Enable Websocket"
    Its called "Enable Web-Hud integration"
    Disavle websocket option and enable the correct one, that should do it

    You could use a software called Joy2Key to do so

    If you see that message your parameter is correct.
    Contact me on discord if you can.

    @OtterNas3, I created a web app which shows you the current ranked races, and I have a feature idea which I need your help to implement, can you look for a DM sent by me in discord?

    Quick question - I'm rebuilding my system and I have a backup of the old C: drive. Does anyone know the default path where OtterHud settings are saved?

    It should be saved within the whole RaceRoom folder in your Documents.

    Thanks Majuh... yeah I assumed that but when I copied that folder over the settings either weren't there or accessed by the HUD.

    It's no big deal - took me 5 minutes to get it back to how I like it.
