I haven't been able to glitch the HUD since the lighting engine update
Are you using a pad, or a HOTAS? I first did it a week or so ago by accident. I have it still bound to B + 'd-pad' right, and I found it's easier to trigger with that [stupid little non-analogue... ] thumbstick as opposed to using the Elite controller's combinations, pre-HOTAS.I haven't been able to glitch the HUD since the lighting engine update
I just launched Elite now, btw, and on a first try I banished the Orca's HUD, so it certainly should be possible.Hotas. I'll try the controller
All those commands are nice on PC...but not much use for the average Xbox player unless they use a USB keyboard as it doesn't work via a tablet or the Xbox phone app which a few folks use for text input. If I remember rightly, Ctrl+F was disabled a while ago on the Xbox...used to work intermittently, same as ctrl+B if you had a USB keyboard plugged in. I think FDev got a bit snarky about showing the frame rates on the Xbox if I'm honest....try ctrl+alt+G it works for PC..sometimes needs to be keyed more than once but for me works nice 99.9% of the time..
as for its use...lots of use, firstly dimming the inside of the ship like that makes it so nice on the eyes to be able to see certain things better.
another big use(for me anyway in various places I fight turning the hud off with 3 monitors makes it easier to see things running away from you and when you headturn to the side you no longer have the stupid displays interfering or sometimes flickering on and off if your stick or mouse isn't in just the right place.
I use it all the time...much easier to fight in really dark places. and I actually use a hotkey macro...so I press 1 key and the macro turns the hud off/on....
if you didn't know about that then you also might not know about - ctrl+F and ctrl+B
Because people like to have fun in life. Because give people the option to be creative, and they will. Because, why not?And, er, why would someone want to eject an SRV in space? It's that part which made ponder whether this was just a troll/joke thread...
NO WAY, IS IT YOU?!? YOU'RE THE REASON I PUT THE SILLY DISCLAIMERS IN! I THINK YOU'RE THE SAME GUY THAT I SHOWED TO MY FRIENDS FOR BEING LITERALLY THE MOST PRETENTIOUS PERSON I'VE SEEN ALL YEAR. "UHH, WHY WOULD YOU TURN MY HUD OFF, uhhh, I LIKE INFORMATION LOL. ""If you value it, then obviously that's great for you, but I don't quite see how it can called useful?
I mean, why would someone want to disable their HUD? Maybe for interior screenshots, but to me it'd just look like their ship's systems have failed...
I found out it could be forced a couple of weeks ago, but haven't tried to replicate it. I triggered it accidentally and thought 'Huh. So it is a thing', before immediately getting it back, 'cause, y'know, data is useful. ; -)"
Um, is this satire? Parody? Tone's lost in text.Thanks for coming into my thread. I want you to know that you single handedly tainted my day, days ago, and you make me feel disgusted for sharing the same existence with someone so entitled and out of touch.
[ lowers voice to a hushed whisper ]It's gross someone can take something so innocent and make it about ego. You're EXACTLY the person I was weary of whilst writing this. I am so absolutely baffled someone can be so opinionated for things so positively requested yet optionally inconsequential.
