    Hi all ;)
    During a race, some racers were DQ because they were unaware of their penalties...
    Apparently, no messages were shown on the screen...
    Does some of you ever experienced this kind of problem ???

    Someone reported this issue during an online event we just had. They had no idea they'd been given a drive through penalty for track cutting. I did notice that the horrible big banners are no longer appearing on my screen, though I did notice the penalty announced in the message box.

    Are they running triple screens?

    yeah, same on our league, only triple screen users are reporting this issue. It looks like only the Slow Down are visible.
    One of them got back to single screen and was able to see all messages (D-T, S&G, cut, high speed in pit, or other players penalties), but back to triple the messages have disappeared again (except S-D)
    No matter if you use the startup argument or not, same issue.
    Don't know if they're using bezel in their Nvidia settings

    @Christian Göpfert is it related to this line from the patchnote ?
    "Fixed so the MiniHUD can now be moved further on ultrawide monitors"

    it seems ok for the penalty messages in VR and triple (not everyone has tested yet). But another bug seems to have come for triple screens : players' name labels are all on the left screen now. I didn't tested myself cause I play in VR, but several guys reported it tonight after our race.
    I've asked them some screenshots, and then to delete the hud_options as well. We'll see.
