Dunno if this has been brought up, but a part of the HUD (which seems to have no use what-so-ever) keeps occasionally appearing at the bottom left half of the screen, where the sprint and health bar was in vBF2. Also pops up during spectator mode, death, spawn select, start of round etc.

It's not my drivers or my card (or any hardware for that matter) because this has appeared in every version of FH2 on a variety of different settings/computers.

No big deal, but it is annoying. Happens about 70% of the time I'd say. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't. Cant seem to find a trend for its appearence.

Maybe the first indicator of a dying fh installation .. I remember seeing things like this before my fh version stopped working. There where also other buttons and stuff in the game menu that changed back to vanilla bf2 buttons and then it went poof :(

I don't think it's that. As I said, various hardware configs on various software configs with unrelated downloads and installations. Yet it is present in all FH2 versions for me.

I think it's a left-over from the modification of vBF2's HUD into the FH2 HUD.

In FH2, the background to the sprint bar is not present (as the primary purpose of it being a background to the health bar is void - because in FH2 there is none), and when not in the first-person mode it is present (i.e. spawn screen, death cam, what-not).

Another update. Not so much the HUD, but I doubt it's worthy of a new thread. So...bump.

Strange shadowed arrow head appears on the PaK 38. I think the same happens on the PaK 40 and PaK 36, but I don't recall the 6 Pounder having this issue.

If you can't see it, look for the small triangle on the floor between the legs of the gun, directly under the player. It actually moves as the gun does. I don't think this is intentional...maybe it is. I can't see a reason for using it though. Possible bug?

Also, can any devs comment on the HUD bug as of yet? Fix possible?

About the pak38 bug, I have made note of this already...I just haven't reported it yet.

I think it is the pivot point of the gun that has an error allowing it to cast a shadow.

Cool beans. Still, anything about the HUD bug?

I'm anxious to know because it really bugs me. I don't even know why.

I have had that HUD bug before, but rarely and it would disappear once I spawned in.

Maybe it does happen to me more often, but I just don't notice. I will pay attention the next time I play and see if I get it at any time. There has been no talk of such a thing as far as I know.
