Just wanted a gear and fuel indicator, keeping it as simplistic as possible. Exactly what I needed, thanks!
the app is buggy in my game
heres an screenshot i dont no why that
Very big thank you, very useful!!
dear xenice can you help me because i want to make an app myself for assetto corsa can you tell me programs i need please and the app i want to make is the f1 style lap counter so will you help me to make this app please xenice.
v1.8.1 works perfectly :) Thank You!
sorry, but v1.8 doesn't show up on the apps bar even thou its selected on the general screen. I have Assetto Corsa V1.0.5rc.
log error:
SimpleHUD : Error in acMain(): Traceback (most recent call last):
File "apps/python/SimpleHUD\", line 226, in acMain
zoom = float(loadCFG(config, directory, cfgFile, 'display', 'zoom', zoom))
NameError: global name 'config' is not defined
An update for this issue will be there tomorrow. If you want there is a beta fixed version on AC forum :
Thank You. Everything seems to be perfect now, & I'm glad to get rid of the other cluttering apps :) 5/5
Thank you for implementing my delta meter request, I appreciate d effort. Only 1 small thing. The delta meter needs its own +zoomup -zoomdown button, i can't get it to the size i want without compromising the size of the Speedometer because both feature uses the same -+Zoom. can you sort that out for me? thanks. You do good work, the sim community appreciates :)
I saw that too, I'm just delayed this for a future update : to find a good manner to implement it. Don't know if I'll make a different setting window OR a switch to act on different app window.
wow, you just keep improving & improving, thanks. ps. Is there any way to add a small side-bar to the HUD showing LAPS & a DELTA meter? that way i only need to use the 1 app, losing the clutter of the others i use.
I will certainly add this for sure ! And take some time to find the good manner. Thanks for your support !
Very nice,but in which folder must i extracted this file.
Extract in \Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\
very nice update, but what happened to the 2 color shift from yellow to red to tell when your at the perfect rev to gear up, I really appreciated that feature. could you bring it back please. thank you.
Because of the changing color according to gear ratio I've delayed the first color display, don't worry it come back soon ! ;)
can't see the white rev line or the white fuel line either can you please help me? thank you
Can you provide content of "\Documents\Assetto Corsa\logs\" or give me error(s) related to SimpleHD in "log-py.log" ? Thanks
Thanks for the hide/show feature!!
thanks for the update kph/mph. a well deserved 5 star :)
This is a really impressive app. Big thanks from all of us, but could u tell us how to change from KPH to MPH. Not knowing is my only gripe.
Thanks for your comment, last update have MPH ! ;)
This is what I was looking for :-) Thanks
