rfDynHUD 1.3.0 released

Marvin Fröhlich released version 1.3.0 of his rfDynHUD overlay-plugin for rFactor. This is mainly a maintenance release, however there have been some cleanup and some changes to the Widget-API. Widgets written for version 1.2.x may not work and should be updated. We urge third-party authors to update their widgets. Please report any problems you encounter in our forums.

  1. FYI:
    I think there is a bug in the 1.3 version of rfdynhud.
    The bug:
    In a nvidia surround 2d (triple head screens) Switching to/from desktop while in Rfactor, make the widgets not be rightly repainted in the screen.

  2. Hello Marvin,

    I already used rfDynHud for some time – and it works great. The only little thing I always wanted to have some widget a little different.

    Therefore I was very glad when I found out that the source code is available from the CTDP Homepage.

    So I tried to re-activate my Java skills – did my last java project approx. 10 – 15 years ago – downloaded the the sources and an IDE (NetBeans 7.2.1) and started working.

    So far so good but here is my issue:

    (A) I can compile and e.g. change the widgets within my java project.
    (B) I can run the HUD editor out of the IDE – but it never uses the newly compiled version of the widgets. I tried to add the rfdynhud.jar file beeing created by the compiler – but than I can’t run the application
    (C) When I manually copy the rfdynhud.jar file to my rfactor directory, I see the changes I made

    What I’m miss (before I can really start a larger widget project) is to make the debugging functionality of the IDE work.

    Please advise as needed.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S.: There seems to be no possibility to register in the developer forum – would appreciate if link for registration could be provided.
