    Can confirm no fps hit here on a mid range PC compared to Fx's.

    It will, yes.. although haven't tested it myself, it will re-scale itself to fit the resolution.

    This is designed as an in-game overlay, but you can still open it on an ipad in the same way you do any other dashboard, by entering the appropriate url (from simhub) into a browser on the ipad.

    Not sure why you would want to though, the simhub default dashboards are designed for this and look much better too :p

    Because I want to see it on a 2nd screen instead of in my main screen. I don’t like to see all the osd parts in/on my virtual cockpit.

    Try the attached files, regarding the start lights. I have added some more logic, since I had overlooked something.
    I forgot to answer another prior question, the reason the top bar may not be hiding (with visibility setting) is that there's actually two top bars, move one down and you will another. If there's no relative data, then a default position top bar shows, it switches to relative when available ;)

    I can't replicate it, at all. Been trying without success :(
    Are you on version 6.8.0b7 of simhub?

    Here's a small update for the 1440 one.
    • Added wheel off center warning at start of race.
    • Added track cut counter (bottom left, in sector section when applicable)
    • Tweaked sector time colouring (best overall/best self etc)
    • Added time (real time, not game) and lap count to top left
    • Added faint radar background and made it disappear when no cars close

    This will work fine on 1080, it rescales to fill the screen. If you want things a bit larger though, you could edit it by shifting the elements towards top left, then changing the resolution for dash (move the items first). They are grouped so should be easy enough.

    I didn't want to maintain too many variants of it, but others in our club have said the 1440 on 1080p was fine anyway.

    yes I am,
    I am re-downloading it and will uninstall and reinstall with your latest file and get back to you.
    just confirming that it doesn't matter what the HUD settings are in game? these are mine attached.

    EDIT:
    unistall/install and you latest file still has the start lights staying on screen after the race start.
    trying with in game setting 'in game overlays' on and off made no difference. :(

    do i need to make a donation for the simhub app, to make it work?

    Not that I'm aware of, that's bizarre though. I tried a SP race at Manthorp short, too.
    What settings do you have for the race, i.e race time. The lights basically use the sequence provided by the game data, in the same way the sector 3 webhud does, with a few minor differences because its in simhub obviously.
    If I can get them to stay on.. I will be able to fix it, but I can't see how/why its broken for you.

    At race start, if you turn your wheel off centre (turn it 15+ % of its rotation), does it show the new "off centre" notice under the lights? If so, does this also remain as you progress through the race?

    I've been testing the recommended overlay in vr. In a 45 minute race with mandatory pitstop, I tell Crew Chief 'box this lap' and screen freezes car stop. Have to go to task manager to get out. Possible causes: have in game track layout on, the webhud box in Crew Chief is active.
    Is there radar? I'm seeing none.
    The only launch parameters are for vr as set out above.

    I wish I could help, unfortunately, its a bit above my knowledge.
    I use crewchief (not voice activated though) and simhub and this dashboard with no issues :( but I only assembled the dash. No idea why it would do as you are describing.

    Thanks. I like the dashboard you created. Hopefully, there's an answer.

    Are you using UDP by any chance for anything?

    yes it comes up directly underneath the lights, and it shows/hides as i move the wheel off centre, so it is working correctly. Even when left activated (ie: @90 degress) when light goes green it dissapears and the light rack stays there as per usual.

    i have the race set at 10 laps.

    Hi there. I have a USBD480 LCD screen and look for a simple tire pressure and temperature (I/M/O) display like this one:

    Not as HUD but for another display. @[RWB] FxUK if possible could you convert it for me or can you show me how I can do it myself? :)
