[3.30] Hud disappeared - Resolved by rolling back Nvidia driver.

Post by RAZUMNO » Tue, 6. Oct 20, 14:46

I got weird bug with ship hud. Sometimes hull/shield hud disappear, sometimes speed hud, sometimes weapons hud. Most of the time it's happened when i open map and then closed it. Look at screenshots. I'm using GTX 1070, win 10, 16GB Ram.

How much VRAM does your GTX 1070 come with and is your graphics driver fully updated? (This is why we ask for information.)

Normally if the HUD totally disappears it is an issue with an intermittent/unwanted Shift-H (or equivalent if remapped) control toggle input - but a partial loss like that is more likely your graphics card struggling for storage or not getting a timely update from video cache etc.

Does it happen more after you have been playing continuously for some while and not so much after a game relaunch?

maybe it helps, had that issue all of a sudden, loading of assets was super slow, all the hud elements also, closing and opening map was too super slow, the game was working fine for 1800 hours until now

so I go to open Nvidia control panel and didn't have any options available, I have 1070 too, why did the drivers brake I don't know, via a benchmark my card was used like 30 percent

reinstalled the Nvidia drivers and all is back to normal again

Hello,
This problem occurs with Drivers v456.38.
You can use the preceding version (456.06) or the last version (456.55), the two resolve the problem.

Tried 456.62 beta vulkan driver. Same problem. Just loaded into the game and already my weapons hud just blinks twice and gone. Sometimes shield/hull hud blinks, when he already disappear.
Aaaaaand... Yes! 452.06 really helps. So, problem resolved.

Maybe newer ones might work better if you uninstall using DDU tool instead im presuming ur using nvidia uninstaller or overwriting them. DDU, presuming u havent used it before, gives the drivers a better clean than what nvidia or windows does usually.

Hi,
Trying to figure this issue out and it's quite finicky.

So I need someone to test something for me if possible.
1. update driver (I guess to current newest version)
2. check if this issue is happening
3. if yes, then go to Documents\Egosoft\X4\<userid>\ and delete the file pipelinecache.bin
4. check if the issue is still happening or not (please try at least for 5min preferably just play the game as normal and see if you get it)
5. report outcome here

Sorry for the request but windows driver issues are the worst.

Been having the same issue as of using latest Nvidia Drivers (Due to my work (work from home) I can not roll back my drivers as I require the latest Nvidia Drivers for the project our team is working on). But will try the above you mentioned and reply after a X4 session later today, as its quite annoying losing Hull/Shield/Speed UI elements in my ships when piloting.

EDIT; Just got some time to check out using above... within a few minutes of a new game, and immediately in my current save it happens. See screenshot link below. Nvidia Drivers 456.71 running on Ryzen 2700X // RTX 2060 6gb ram // MSI B450M Gaming Plus // 32Gig DDR4 // Game installed on M2A Drive. Also happens on my other machine with above drivers, which is a Ryzen 2600 // 1060GTX 6gb ram // 16 Gig DDR4 // MSI B450M Gaming Plus // Samsung 256G SSD.

Picture @ Steam link - Can see where the Speed/Hull/Shield is just a blue/grey smear. UI element shows for a few seconds and then disappears. Game is Vanilla (No mods - though happens in modded games as well).

For me 452.06 worked but then I've had crashes all the time.

So I changed back to newest (456.71) and got the HUD flickering again.
In that state I played around with different graphics settings and found one that fixed the issue for me:

Try setting Anti-Aliasing to MSAA x2. It worked for me, maybe it can help others too.

I'm also having this issue. RTX 2060 SUPER, latest nvidia drivers (456.71).
It happens mostly to the shield and hull bar, sometimes to the selected weapon and missile symbols, sometimes target info window. They disappear randomly that reappear randomly, sometime flicker for a second or two.
I haven't noticed any other graphical problems.
Will try this antialiasing trick.
EDIT: Nope, it still happens. I noticed it happend after docking and undocking. Maybe it's coincidence.

You're unlikely to find any correlation between what you do in-game and the flickering or disappearance of the HUD elements. If you can't roll back to the earlier driver version then please bear with us while we try to get Nvidia to sort this out, as our investigations strongly point to it being a driver issue.

Certain items disappear from hud

Post by Mr.Killer » Thu, 15. Oct 20, 21:40

Since 5 days or so I thought, well, lets go fly a bit around and do the other thing in X4.... Needles to say that there was a weird thing in my HUD, the two indicators, shield and hull status were gone, actually flying blind I might say, when I examined the thing, I noticed that on my behemoth also the weapon indicators were missing....

Is this a new update thing?
