Missing HUD in Dread battle with Oculus Rift DK2

I’m using the Oculus Rift DK2 for the game, and mostly it works great!


One huge problem though:


I have been in 4 dread battles now, 3 defense and one attack.

In all of them there was serious issues with the HUD, half the time targets would not get boxes, neither would I see any damage I did.


Sometimes the boxes and dmg display would appear, but when I moved my ship, they disappeared again.


This of course made targets really hard to see and know if you hit them.


Would be great if you could look into that, as it is, it is almost unplayable.

Hello alh420,


Could you please create a full bug report ? You canview how to do so [here](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/25328-how-to-create-bug-reports/).

  1. Description of the problem, what happened.


While doing Dread battle with my oculus rift DK2, I noticed the target boxes often missing from targets, and also the damage I did to target would not show, even though I clearly hit them with my lasers (They exploded and I got “enemy destroyed” message).

Sometimes the distance would show and nothing else (I have distance on all targets on in settings)

When activating a target, the health bar and that little target circle was also missing when this happens.

The boxes/healthbars would semi-randomly appear and disappear (It seemed to correlate with the position and orientation of my ship)

It happens on both player ships and drones.


  1. What did you expected to happen.


I expect to see target boxes on all targets visible on radar, including distance, since this is my settings.

I expect to see the health bar and the circle showing where they are going on the active target.

I also expect to see the damage numbers when hitting enemies.



  1. The conditions during the situation.


Dread battle, using oculus rift dk2 (SDK version, both as attacker and as defender.


  1. Further details on the issue.


The boxes/healthbars would semi-randomly appear and disappear (It seemed to correlate with the position and orientation of my ship)


  1. Frequency of occurrence.


100% of dread battles I’ve been in.

Does not happen in other PvP or PvE modes


  1. Logs + screenshots or a video (Including a description of the issue, where to and how to reproduce it)


Coming, if I can manage to capture it clearly… (dread battles are a bit hectic, and OBS makes the oculus stutter when capturing…)

Happens in every dread battle so far for me, regardless of location.


  1. If possible, the time when it happend. In this case we will be able to look more closely to the server logs. Also mention your time zone.


Wednesday (2015-05-06) and Thursday (2015-05-07) in the tournaments at 19:00 CET and 22:00 CET. Also Friday (2015-05-09) at 19:00



  1. Information on the configuration of your computer (DxDiag)




  1. The results of this program if the bug report is related to connection issues.

  2. If the complaint is related to Sector Conquest, it is necessary to specify the location and time + timezone of the happening.


Unfortunatly I do not remember in which sector the attacks/defends was…  

Defence was NASA and GEN owned sectors. My corp is Planetary Dynamics.
