Hey, m8f! Thank you for the continued work on this! As usual, this is just one of those mods that I *never* leave off no matter what I play.

May I just request a minor feature - can we also an option for having the crosshair grow on pickup (as per the vanilla option)?

Thanks again!

I am very confused about how custom blacklisting works. How do I do it? I'm trying to blacklist an actor in Combined Arms called shieldblocker (Past Linked's shield with his main weapon), with it not blacklisted I can't see health bars of enemies with the main weapon equipped unless I start shooting, even when I have Target Spy set to not even show objects, which is the only way it shows up as a health bar. It still acts like the health bar is always there and won't show other enemy health bar until the shieldblocker health bar disappears. How do you exactly blacklist actors?

I've tried creating a new text file in the pk3 file named ts_blacklist and all using SLADE, putting the actor name in there, but it didn't do anything. Am I missing a step?

This mod has become one of the inseparable part of my GZD load order, beside a few more mods of yours of course.
Thank you for your hard work!

Pushed some possible fixes to Target Spy dev build: https://github.com/mmaulwurff/target-sp ... master.zip
There were two possible issues: 1. blacklisted classes were case-sensitive, 2. code didn't account for Windows CRLF line endings.

There is still an issue with Combined Arms Past Linked Shield. It can be blacklisted or not, but in both cases it just stands in the way and blocks getting the real target. The solution needs to be much more elaborate, and I don't think it's worth it.

Ah, that's unfortunate. I guess it's not a super big deal but it is mildly annoying. For some reason though I remember the shield working just fine at some point. It didn't end up blocking anything but then suddenly started doing so.

Thanks for getting back to me, at least.

It seems like after updating to GZDoom 4.6.0, this mod has stopped working for me, after trying the release and the dev builds of the mod. Can you confirm if this is the case for you as well? Because as usual, it could also be some incompatibility here on my end.


EDIT: OR for some reason the idle filter was on when I could've sworn I turned it off. Sorry about that.
