    I'm developing a user interface to modify the file hud_options.xml, I didn't have too much imagination and called it R3E HUD Manager. :)

    Current features
    screen02.jpg
    screen03.jpg
    screen04.jpg
    screen05.jpg
    screen06.jpg
    Planned features
    • Display interface for the other options listed in XML (no urge cause these options are already editable in R3E menus).
    • Add images for other MoTeCs (for preview purpose).
    • Improve ergonomics and layout validation.

    Known issues
    I've reported the list of things not working as expected here.
    • It's not possible to update the in-game layout while R3E is running cause it reads the HUD file only at startup.
    • While running the game overwrites the HUD file regularly and can modify your layout if it has some "invalid" values.
    • Triple screen layout considers that all 3 screens use the same resolution. If you use another kind of configuration, please let me know.
    More details
    • At first launch, app backups your current hud_options.xml in the app data directory. So if you modified this file, I suggest you restore the original R3E file before to install the app. If you didn't, you still can edit the "original" HUD file by clicking the gearing button > Open application data directory > and edit the file "hud_options.xml.backup".
    • If the version number at begin of the xml changes, application creates a new backup of this file and move the old backup to a sub-directory "Old Backups".
    • Source code is available here.
    • You can report bugs in this thread or here.

    Installation
    You can install the application via this URL. Note that you'll get warnings about installing an untrusted application, I'll check later how to solve this.
    Application will prompt you at startup when an update is available.

    EDIT: @ChatCureuil Apex Hunt was an old feature that won't be used anymore. So, you don't take it into account :)

    I'm investigating... Thanks for the patience... :)

    That's fixed, stupid mistake when setting the update URL. ^^

    So we can now change placeholders sizes.

    I found that setting a size superior than 1 doesn't work (tested only on virtual mirror), R3E reset it and even move the placeholder.

    Size change is the same on both X/Y axis cause I found strange behaviors in R3E when not using the same value.

    If you want to test, you can set values directly in components. I did a test with someone yesterday and we had some strange surprises. :)

    But if you want to try, I suppose values are:
    - left of left screen: X=-3, center of left screen: X=-2
    - right of right screen: X=3, center of right screen: X=2

    Yesterday we tried to push Motec to bottom right of right screen, but R3E reinitialized it to bottom right of center screen.
    We also tried the FFB meter on bottom left of left screen and it was displayed there but R3E reinitialized its value at exit (if I understood good what the other person told to me, I have a single screen config).

    If you want to test this and report what works or no, that's welcome. :)

    Version 0.2.0.24:
    - Added a list of position presets.
    Example, if you want to put Motec in bottom center, set both position and anchor presets to "Bottom Center".

    Soon or later, the app will integrate a "What's new" popup, I suppose... :)

    Version 0.2.0.25:
    - Preset lists always clear if no preset corresponds to current data.
