    For the last 2 builds my arcade style hud lcd thing has looked different and 1 page comes up in the left corner, with the rest on the right. Is this a problem just with me or is it the same for everybody? I'll attach 2 screenshots so you can see what I mean.

    Everyone has it and it's not a problem. Just a design solution. Changed font, size, updated lcd with damages and one of the lcds is on top left corner. No biggie. ;)

    Click on 'customise' and try one of the other HUD designs.

    Are you kidding ronnie cos it sounds like a joke. It is a very strange design solution if that is the case, more of a hindrance than a solution.
    And thats not an option jamez.

    Nab the SDK and customize to your liking. It is quite easy to move stuff around on screen.

    These lines in the player file gives you the old double dial HUD:

    Code:
    HUD file="\path\to\rFactor2\Core\HUD\MULTI DIAL.INI"
    HUD Component="Standard HUD"
    HUD Component Version="1.0"
    Adjust the search path accordingly.

    I prefer the arcade style hud, I am not keen on the multi-dial as the red shift light is too small to be useful. I'm surprised I haven't seen more talk about this strange design choice for the arcade hud, I am stumped as to why they would make such crazy changes, text didn't need to be bigger and where is the logic of putting the standings on the left! Oh well, I will have to put up with it and see what future updates bring.

    not sure how you are setup smithaz, but imagine how that would look on a triple screen setup if you could push those windows out to the outside monitors and out of your way. :)
