How to move HUD & Black Boxes in iRacing?
HUD or Heads-Up Display are UI elements that provide users with necessary information. So, all the information boxes that show up while in a race in iRacing – the speed meter, the fuel meter, the speed limit, and more are referred to as HUDs. Some even call them black boxes due to their appearance. To move them around, all you have to do is press the Alt and K keys together to activate the Toggle UI Edit. The Alt+K is the default combination. But if it doesn’t work, open Options > Controls and check the keys assigned for Toggle UI Edit. You could assign a new key combination to that if you want!
iRacing doesn’t provide many HUD options by default. But you can enable more HUD options like alerts, flags, voice chat, session timer, and more by simply changing a variable value in the app.ini file. To do so, follow these steps:
1) Firstly, close iRacing UI.
2) Open File Explorer and head over to This PC > My Documents > iRacing. Now, locate the app file of .ini type and open it. Scroll down until you see the [Graphics] section.
3) Under Graphics, change the value of forceVisibleWhenMove to 1.
Save changes and open up iRacing UI to access a host of HUD elements available at your disposal.
If you want to move the HUD elements to a second monitor or nth monitor, follow these steps:
1) Make sure you close iRacing first.
2) Open File Explorer and navigate to This PC > My Documents > iRacing.
3) Next, locate and the app.ini file. Scroll down until you see the [Graphics] section.
4) Change the value of DriveUIFullScreen to 1. Save changes.
