Lazy - Overlay : Dashboard: Cannot load background texture

Obvious question, have you downloaded and extracted the textures to the right folder?

Quote from z0rnd1k3 :have the same problem.
install vanilla lfs, disable Avast, close Steam, Origin, but nothing helps. that message about hooking still appears (Lazy - Overlay : Cannot create overlay. Another program already hooked LFS?). My radar also disappears after update to build 20 (before it works fine).

Previous build checked some other functions that are needed to create Dashboard, probably they were used by some other program in your case. In latest build functions for Radar and Dashboard are checked separately, which means that Radar should work if it worked previously, however Dashboard will obviously fail in your case. I've added more infomation to error now, and you should see module which use that function.

now it shows "Lazy - Overlay : Cannot create dashboard (EN). Another program already hooked LFS?".
radar is ok now, thanks !

Dunno where exactly my LFSLazy is installed...Radar works. so must check for radar textures probably..

Did you and where exactly extract archive? It should be in LFSLazy folder (not where .exe is, but config and rest of files).

Did you get information about module that use that function? It should be followed by that message. That might lead you to possible problem of error.
Ehm, its a mess here. I have a lot of lazy files all over the disc. How can i check from where lfslazy starts and stores files?
Edit. I found that lfslazy is installed @ downloads map. Working now.
It's not Daniel's fault that you don't organize your folders properly :P

You are just too lazy to use LFSLazy.
I always thought that its @ LFS folder. But it was fake folder there.

There's no followed message...
Danieel, me and my buddy thought that if its possible to make autoreconnect system in LFSLazy if you play in cruise servers like us, if you lose ur connection it autoreconnects you back to server? Possible?

Anyway, keep up good work
Problem with such an option would be in case you get kicked for being AFK, what quite some servers do. Obviously if server kick you, that mean you are not welcome to just idle at server and you should not rejoin. There isn't a way to differentiate lost connection and kick in LFS.
You're right.. Hmm..
Looks like fraps kills the car radar.

New version will have an option to turn off verification. Nacim has confirmed that this solves problem in his case, however I do not recommend using it, tho 95% of other programs don't have such verification (FPS, recording programs, ...)

Looks very good!
Only thing I miss on UF1 is gear number
New version will not require users to install specials fonts, as they can be loaded from file now, and I added a couple of more indicators
Quote from McGherkin :Looks like fraps kills the car radar.

Works fine here if I first start Lazy and then fraps. In other case if fraps is already running, Lazy will refuse to load overlay... Is that what you are reffering to or in your case it isn't as I described?

Also I think it would be good idea to always add screenshots here

*Mumbles about programs that hook into LFS and let players cheat...*

And under wine it constantly steals focus or something from LFS, so keypresses don't work.

It is simply drawing dashboard over the default one, pretty much same thing what FRAPS and every screen recording program does, tho they often render just FPS. Only hooked functions are directx core functions (d3d9.dll), that means there is absolutely no change to actual LFS code.

About focus stealing - does it happen only since latest build or happened previously too? Every person I've asked that previously had problems now confirmed that everything is fine (windows).

I mean the ability to show fuel and engine damage for any car, which is not available in game, InSim or OutGauge.

I only tried a couple of versions, but they both stopped key presses working.
Well, quite some people know this for years and previously as there was no fuel info it was easy to cheat fuel. I've got permission on that feature.


DASHBOARD

Meantime I've decided to improve my XFG dash textures, which lead to some quite nice improvements to Dashboard Editor. So now you can put fonts in "Fonts" folder, which doesn't require users to install them. Gauges got a new division lights, idea is to have like leds which turn on as needle move. I think the results are pretty nice, however some say it is too futuristic for a car like XFG (which should fit more to 1990s). It is very easy to turn it off, so I don't think it will be a problem for anyone. And finally now you can specify what each individual indicator/gauge/text do when ignition is off.

Preview:
Wow very cool

Cool, two wrongs make a right...

Anyway, this information would be useful server-side to prevent cheaters.
That's a great update, I need to create a new dash for XRT with this need Dashboard system.

Is the dashboard backlighting off when lights are off ?

Permission from who? How do you retrieve all fuel data from all drivers?
