HUD during cutscenes...

    Was this seriously a bug? Now we can't bring up the HUD "at all" during cutscenes?

    First, you used to be able to hit just about any button that brought up a window (inventory, esc, journal, etc.) twice to bring it up. Then you "fixed" that to where you could only do it by hitting Enter twice.

    (On Live) I do this during every cutscene cause I'm a weirdo that doesn't like to see my HUD gone. It was especially good for group settings, like the DLC9 operations, so I could see where my group was at for power (to mentally "prepare" haha), or so I could talk in chat during the cutscene.

    But now you can't really do that. As soon as you hit Enter, it comes up, then it goes away when leaving chat.

    I thought I was the only one?! D:

    Yeah, I definitely hate this addition. :(

    I was just trying this out. I also dislike that the HUD disappears during cut-scenes. When I'm playing in Controller role, I like having the HUD up so I can see my teammates power bars. That gives me some idea as to what the power situation will be like after the cut-scene ends. You can also miss group chat if the HUD isn't up.

    I do it too. Especially at the start of lair battles.

    I liked this function too. Helps with speed feats and getting any group loot that may drop (fewer these days but still applies). Also helps restack and consumables you may need to restack as you are invincible during cutscenes.

    I was playing through several alerts/duos today and this new behavior is really starting to annoy me. Some of my teammates missed important group chat information because the chat box disappeared after they finished typing.

    This is a minor thing but this has become a habit of mine over the years. Any chance this can be changed before the update launches?

    Agreed, It's basically an involuntary reaction now to hit enter twice after a cutscene starts...
