My HUD disappeared!

#1 Edited by The_Tolman (429 posts) -

So for some reason my hud (ammo count, map, etc.) has disappeared. I don't even have a gun aiming dot. Im on the first mission in china. anyone know how to fix this or suffer from similar issues?  
This is an issue on the PS3 version of the game.

Try changing your screen resolution back and forth.

Did you try to load an earlier save? Did you change something in the options by mistake? What version are you playing?

SO MANY QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERS!!!

it auto saved over the last time i had a hud. um I'm playing on the ps3 and i didn't touch any options.

I just got this too and no settings are bringing it back. I'm on 360 BTW. Hopefully there will be a patch that fixes this, because I don't want to go back to a really old save just to have it happen again. 
 
I've seen other forums with discussions about it, but no solutions.

I'm seriously considering not playing the game for a while cause there is no way I'm gonna go back to the last time i physically saved it cause thats a good six hours ago.

I actually searched for a way to do it. TELL ME HOW YOU DID IT!!!

Pressing ` makes the weapon bar disappear try it, maybe it will work.

I think a better question would be why you didn't save manually. You're probably fucked now, unless they release a patch soon. Try changing stuff in the options anyway, this might fix it.

I have messed around in the settings but its no use. I haven't really had the need to save manually for a while just because it auto saves so much.

Ok, try this: save your current game in a new file, then go back to your old manual save. If the hud is fixed, let the game autosave a few times. Now load your new save, let the game autosave a few times then load the latest autosave. See what happens.

I guess you'll have to replay the game from your last save, then. If it took you 6 hours to reach China from that point, I'm sure you'll do it much faster now that you know what you're doing. You may want to explore other ways to do missions to make it more interesting. Oh, and remember to save often and on multiple files. :)
