I don’t really understand what you mean?
But as you can see, the infos are cropped, it’s a firmware problem, i need to flash another one to see if it any better.

You know what the problem is right?

You have horizontal mode selected, that’s what’s causing the cutoff.
You have to comment it and uncomment vertical mode like this:

I got one for dirt cheap from jinra

I don’t know if it is supported on ACK and I don’t think anyone would care to tell me.

I’m saving it for when I make something besides a esk8 like a drift trike.

This is what you have now probably:
// Screens. Uncomment the ones you want enabled.
//#define DEFAULT_SCREEN_ENABLED 1
#define SIMPLE_HORIZONTAL_SCREEN_ENABLED 1
//#define SIMPLE_HORIZONTAL_SCREEN_WITH_BATTERY_CURRENT_ENABLED 1
//#define SIMPLE_HORIZONTAL_SCREEN_WITH_MOTOR_CURRENT_ENABLED 1
//#define SIMPLE_VERTICAL_SCREEN_ENABLED 1
//#define SIMPLE_VERTICAL_SCREEN_WITH_BATTERY_CURRENT_ENABLED 1
//#define SIMPLE_VERTICAL_SCREEN_WITH_MOTOR_CURRENT_ENABLED 1
//#define TEXT_SCREEN_ENABLED 1

By taking away the two slashes before the #define you activate a certain mode. You can cycle through them by tapping button 3 I think.
So I would suggest you activate simple vertical.

Should be fixed

How do you mount it to your deck?
Btw: does the display show 0 as a value on everything when turned on but not connected ti the VESC? Or will the screen stay black/white
