The Vehicle HUD is displayed when HUD is either hidden or disabled
Acknowledged, NormalPublic

Description

When the HUD is disabled using either the key binding (default is long-press tilde) or via the game options menu, the UI still shows a vehicle controls HUD when inside a vehicle.

In both cases (i.e. menu and key disabled), when the player exits a vehicle, a partial HUD comprised of the stamina and noise indicators is displayed. This partial HUD is easy to miss and reapplies each time the player exits a vehicle.

This breaks immersion for players who are filming cinematics or players and/or streamers who want a clean HUD.

Resolving Partial Hud:

  • If the partial HUD is displayed as a result of the HUD being disabled via the key binding, it can be cleared away by pressing the key twice (long-press tilde) or even toggling the game settings (Esc).
  • If the partial HUD is displayed as a result of the HUD being disabled via the options menu, it cannot be as easily removed. The only way to remove it in this case, is to force the game to "refresh" its options. This can be done by making and applying a change in the options menu The change does not have to be related to the HUD. Any change to the audio/video/control/option setting will do as long as the UI enables the "Apply" button. Once Apply is pressed, the UI refreshes properly and the partial HUD goes away.

It will likely be helpful to watch my linked unlisted YT video. I made it while getting over the flu so please excuse the sniffles and raspy voice...

Steps To Reproduce
  • The outcome in both sets of steps is the same regardless of the player starting in/out of a vehicle. I started outside to better illustrate the issues.
  • I ran this test on a 100% vanilla local server to avoid my earlier mistake (see additional info and my comment to Geez below after he pushed for internal testing)

Repro steps Issue 1:

  1. Start outside a vehicle with the HUD visible.
  2. Disable the HUD using the assigned key binding (default long press tilde).
  3. The HUD on both the left/right goes away.
  4. Enter the vehicle
  5. The Vehicle HUD displays in the left-hand corner (problem)
  6. Exit vehicle
  7. A partial HUD (stamina bar and noise indicator) is now in lower left corner (problem)
  8. The partial HUD will only go away if the tilde is long pressed twice in a row OR if the Esc key is hit twice to open close the options menu.

Repro steps Issue 2:

  1. Start outside a vehicle with the HUD visible.
  2. Disable the HUD using the Game Options menu (By default, press Esc and go to Options>Game and set "Show HUD" to "Disabled").
  3. The HUD on both the left/right goes away.
  4. Enter the vehicle
  5. The Vehicle HUD displays in the left-hand corner (problem)
  6. Exit vehicle
  7. A partial HUD (stamina bar and noise indicator) is now in lower left corner (problem) i) The default key binding (long press tilde) has no effect.
  8. The partial HUD will only go away if a change is made to options and then applied. i) This can be any game/audio/video/control option as long as Apply is selected and does not have to involve the HUD.

@Geez I had to amend the bug a bit as I found a flaw in part of my own test.

To keep it simple, there was still a bug, but I adjusted the writeup and video once I discovered my error.

DaGreekGeek renamed this task from HUD disabled with tilde key still shows item in hands as well as car HUD and interactions to The Vehicle HUD is displayed when HUD is either hidden or disabled.Mar 3 2023, 1:59 AM

Dear Geez,

Any news on that? Tested on 1.22 and the behaviour is still the same.
