<solved> HUD gone in interstellar space

Post by ralph_hh » Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:06 pm

I had my first whitchdrive malfunction since 1.82, took me to an ongoing battle between a Navy ship and 2 Thargoid Cruisers, several Thargoid Battleships. After killing two, I hit "P" to pause, after the pause my HUD was gone. Without crosshair that was a lost battle, so I hyperjumped again, but after the jump still the same. With no compass, no radar, I quit the game.

The Thargoid battle was probably due to GalNavy OXP, otherwise I have auto-crosshairs but I use the standard HUD.

Did you hit 'o' whilst paused, perchance? That disables/enables the hud.

Probably a stupid question, but is it possible that you accidentally hit "O" as well?

Edit: Cody beat me to it...
"You wouldn't kill me just for a few credits, would you?" – "No, I'll do it just for the fun!"

Ooops? I was not aware, that you could disable the HUD??? :shock: :?
Since O is very close to P, that's absolutely possible. I was in a hurry.
A pity for that nice battle.

Easily done in the heat of combat. It's mostly used for screenshots, but I often fly - and occasionly fight - with the hud disabled.
