- added "clear" command for crosshair parts;

Thank you! :D

I'll play with this latest update later today and whip up some screenshots for a collage image you can use on the first page to show off the mod better.

Solid update. I have a couple ideas.

What if the color of the monster name was based on starting health? Maybe grey for weak zombiemen up to red for bosses.
How about an option to have the crosshair only show when you are targeting something.

If you do decide to use them, make sure to save and rehost them yourself, I may not always be around.

Option to scale crosshair, too?

I noticed that the crosshair is slightly below the standard crosshair. It doesn't matter if you turn off the regular crosshair, just pointing it out.

At this time, crosshair is drawn using ACS HudMessage, so it is scaled together with other messages. Its scale is configured in Hud Options -> Scaling Options -> Messages (together with other messages). That's why it is unaffected by GZDoom "Scale crosshair" option. To add this option, I must rewrite crosshair code entirely, so this feature will be added only in distant future or won't be added at all.

That's intentional. GZDoom crosshair is always above the point where you actually shoot. Target Spy crosshair is a bit closer to this point.

Its a nice alternative to the Tekish Simple UI version and I like the customisation you've built into it. Good job!

I really like the memento font option in this thing and wondered how easy it is to add more fonts into to this.

I then found these two pages (https://www.realm667.com/index.php/en/f ... /technical and https://www.realm667.com/index.php/en/f ... s/medieval), which have a couple of really good candidates for font options. I'd nominate the following:

  • Enlightening Small
  • Cyberfonter
  • Jenocide Big
  • Solid Snake Small
  • Gargoyle Wing Small

How do you feel about them?

I think that's a good thing to have.

Update (v0.8):
- added an option to disable spy for non-monster objects. Sometimes you want to see how damaged is this barrel, sometimes you don't.
- disabled spy and crosshair for titlemap.
- added more fonts: Enlightening Small, Cyberfonter, Jenocide Big, Solid Snake Small, and Gargoyle Wing Small.

Also there is a Git repository for absolutely no reason.

Tried this a few days ago... And I have to say I like it a lot! :yup:

It is a very good alternative to JPHUD's Health Bar (which is also cool), but Target Spy overcomes it with the useful options to show HP from non-monster objects and also showing Boss and Friendly monster tags! And even an alternate crosshair, WOW!

Really great job M8f, I congratulate you! :thumb:

I've noticed that with The Trooper, some monsters do not appear to display a health bar, particularly basic zombies, imps, and other common demonspawn.
