    Bug Description: flickering UI when values are updated while auto-hide is enabled

    note: I am using the Tobii Eye Tracker features


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:

    1) start a game with Tobii Eye Tracker Auto-Hide UI feature enabled

    2) be looking away from the edges of the screen that house UI elements

    2) do something to make a bar/counter in the UI change (spend stamina, gain xp, etc.)



    Actual result: (description of what is occurring)

    flickering on whichever UI element is changing at the moment (stamina going up or down, or XP bar going up, for example)


    Expected result: (what you expect to occur)

    UI should either be visible or hidden, depending if you are looking at it or not. There should be no flickering.

    IMHO: Either make it visible while it is moving, regardless of whether you are looking at it, or make it only visible if you look at it, regardless of whether it is moving.

    Correct. The eye tracker may work well with 7 Days to Die and the Tobii features they provide, but TFP doesn't have a working relationship with Tobii. Any issues while using their peripheral will need to be worked out through them.

    Good luck!

    P.S. It is my personal goal to encourage TFP to get more peripherals like this supported as well as other game features to aid players with impairments. i.e. color blind options, on screen indicators for hearing impaired, and peripherals like this for physical impairments. This may or may not happen, but would most likely be closer to Gold or even post Gold.
