Really big thanks for frame.
Now it looks like a "Deus Ex" game. :)

Minor update (v1.5.1). Changelog:
- fixed: targets that are hidden in the dark are detected if the player has light amplification or invulnerability powerup.
- enabled Laser Sight mod to show special color on friendly targets. New versions of both mods are required for this feature to work. Laser Sight v0.4

About frames feature: credits go to Gutawer for Gutamatics library, which made drawing frames possible, and thanks to ramon.dexter for asking for adding them.

I've been using this since around 0.5 or 0.6, it's remarkable how much it's grown. It's pretty rare that I don't play with this nowadays, though I've got a little feedback.

I've been using this mod since release and I must say it is absolutely amazing how much it has grown. The polish and ability to customize nearly everything has cemented this mod as an absolute necessity in any wad playthrough for me. I can't thank you enough for your efforts here. With that, I do have one request which I would find quite useful. Is there a way to perhaps make the kill confirmation feature change the color of the monster name upon death? For me, rather than the current text, a simple change of the name to red is a nice, quick and easily visible confirmation. I suppose since the color of the names themselves is customizable, that the color of the name upon death should be customizable as well. Red may not be as clearly visible a change as desired, depending on some player's settings for name/tag color. Perhaps a strikethru effect would be easier to implement? Its just a thought.

Astonishing work - love this effect, and I'm beginning to feel something's missing if I'm playing without it :)

- Option to tie the base UI to the frame, or have that behavior without the frame, if that makes sense. Like, have the base move with entities like the frame, not static as it is now. X/Y offsets for that would be cool too.
Added to todo list. This will require some amount of rearranging the logics.

ate0ate wrote:...make the kill confirmation feature change the color of the monster name upon death?
The problem is, the monster name normally is not displayed when the monster is killed, so there is nothing to change color. The "Kill Confirmed" message is an exception, and it is displayed irregardless of the killed target is pointed at or not. I'd had to change the way how the mod works quite a lot to implement this option. I'll see what I can do - maybe sometimes in the future this will become possible.

Thanks :D

Update v1.7 brings more customization to crosshair: now graphical crosshair pieces are available (courtesy of vapidscum).

To use them, select "Crosshair Pieces" or "Crosshair Pieces [No border]" as crosshair font, and then refer to Crosshair Pieces Reference table.

I've had a crash with this error; it's very rare, but it does seem to be consistently caused by the same things, including:
-Mods that feature summonable friendlies. Not every mod that has a summonable friendly will trigger it; but very specific ones do, like La Tailor Girl's version of Basilissa, and the Draugh in GunCaster. The crash does not happen instantly; just after they become active and have moved around/attacked a bit (it also occurs regardless of whether you are looking at them or not).
-Any situation where you teleport and end up "inside" of a non-solid actor that has health and thus triggers the spy (such as Combine Arms weapons crates), but isn't telefragged as a result of your teleporting (for example, if you are teleported into the air above it, and then fall down and land inside of it).



In all cases, the crash can be prevented by turning the Target Spy off with the hotkey.

Is it possible to change the number of characters in the bar? Because I'd like to have the health bar be like the IIIIIIIII... example, but that results in most enemies having very short healthbars.

How can I deny a feature request from Cthulhu, even if it is in a can?

Small update (v1.8). Changes:

- added health bar length slider. Now it is possible to make health bar longer or shorter;
- added an option to display bars and info above and below target.

Thanks for the update, the monster-attached bars are really helpful!

I found something weird though: no matter what you set the length multiplier to, it won't display a healthbar more than 52 characters in length.

EDIT: I figured out a fix, although I'm not sure if this is the correct way to fix it. In m8f_ts_settings.txt, changing it to
Code: Select allExpand view
pipSource      = m8f_ts_String.Repeat(pip,      500);
emptyPipSource = m8f_ts_String.Repeat(emptyPip, 500);

from 50 fixes it.
