    [HOW TO] Solve DirectX overlay issue

    Startup issues

    In this thread you can find some help in case you see an error message after starting HUD - like this:




    Step #1:
    Be sure to have:

    • at least .NET 4.5.2
    • at least DirectX 11
    • at least Windows 7 SP1

    If you don't have any of those, then fix it, restart your computer, and try to start HUD.

    Step#2:
    If you have Windows 7 SP1 then install Windows 7 Platform Update - Google-kereses
    After the installation restart your computer, and try to start HUD.

    Step#3:
    Open config\config.xml, find the attribute called "directx_feature_level_override" and change it like this:
    directx_feature_level_override="Level_9_1"
    Now try to start HUD.

    Can't install Platform Update on SP1

    Most people who wasn't able to install Platform Update on their Windows 7 SP1 managed to solve the problem, but the solution cannot be defined exactly:
    - check your windows updates. install everything. look if they give you an error.
    - uninstall SP1 (yes, this is a pain in the ass) and then reinstall it, and then try to install Plarform Update.

    Somebody fixed it this way:
    I finally managed to get this working for me. I already have Win 7 with SP1 installed, and was getting the error 'the update is not applicable to your computer' when trying to install the platform update.

    I re-downloaded SP1 from Download Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) from Official Microsoft Download Center (I did NOT uninstall the current SP1!)
    (downloaded 7601.17514.101119-1850_Update_Sp_Wave1-GRMSP1.1_DVD.iso 1.9 GB file)

    After running the setup, and a the computer restarting itself a few times, I applied the platform update but it said it had already been installed.
    TurboHUD is working once again

    Performance issues

    If HUD works for you, but it is slower than before version 15.9.28.1 then you have to try different "directx_feature_level_override" values in your config.xml.

    Possible values are: Level_9_1, Level_9_2, Level_9_3, Level_10_0, Level_10_1, Level_11_0, Level_11_1, Level_12_0 (not recommended), Level_12_1 (not recommended)

    Hint: some people reported that Level_9_2 fixed the lag.
