    I prefer the old, rotating Map, but there is no way to switch it back. The DynHud Editor appears in the Taskbar, but not in a Window; it doesn't open. Is there any Way to get the old Map back?

    From the patch notes

    DynHUD: set trackmap in Original / Telemetry overlays to fixed (can be switched back to rotating via DynHUD Editor); added missing race widgets to Telemetry overlay

    If you are using a "non-standard" resolution, then you have to first go into the config folder (under DynHUD) and edit the editor_settings.ini file with your screen's resolution. Annoyingly, this file gets reset every time they do an update. The editor will not run properly (at least for me) if the resolution does not match my screen.

    Then, you should be able to run dynhud_editor.exe in the editor folder. Then, you have to find the overlay you are actually using (check your UI in AMS if you are not sure). Then click on the map widget and you will see the option under "Misc" in the right hand configuration/options panel.

    It's a fair amount of work. I know, because I am one of the people who had to go through this aggravation to turn OFF the rotation when the default option was to rotate. Now the situation is reversed. Reiza must have had feedback that the majority preferred the non-rotating map.

    I have the same Resolution as in editor_settings.ini; several month ago it works fine, but not now. Now I see the Editor in the Taskbar Preview Window, but that's all.

    Odd. What do people use the map for? Personally, I use it for learning new tracks and to see where nearby opponents are on track. For that rotation is a must. I'm not sure why you'd want a static map sitting on your screen though?

    I guess we'll probably add an alternate hud profile with rotating if there's such a demand for it.

    Well, online I find pretty useful to know where everybody is on the track. Maybe I'm too used to get lapped and to know when the leaders will be coming...:laugh:

    GID Hud has a great track map display.
    It can be changed on the track with a keyboard shortcut:
    1. Off
    2. Full map
    3. Rotating map

    It's possible to run DynHud and GID Hud simultaneously.
    GID uses a different d3d9.dll in the main AMS folder. To use both:

    1. Rename DynHud's d3d9.dll (147KB) to something like d3d9DYNHUD.dll

    2. Edit GIDPlugin.ini
    FROM
    [GENERAL]
    #OriginalD3D9Dll=d3d9_tvstyle.dll
    OriginalD3D9Dll=DEFAULT
    TO

    [GENERAL]
    #OriginalD3D9Dll=d3d9_tvstyle.dll
    OriginalD3D9Dll=d3d9DYNHUD.dll


    GID Hud download

    Some prefer rotating and some prefer static. I thought I would prefer rotating, but find it more difficult to find my own car and the rotating is distracting. I use a smaller footprint map. If I was using the standard size or larger, I might prefer rotating. Point is, we can chose whichever we prefer. The only issue is that it is a bit tedious to change it.

    And when you click on it, what happens? Or click on it in the taskbar itself?

    When I click on the exe file the Editor-Icon appears in the Taskbar; that's all. When II click on the Icon there happens nothing.
