Brilliant! Reminds me of how crosshair worked in Serious Sam. Which development build would you recommend to use?

Thanks!

Probably the latest one. I didn't test them personally.

Are you ever planning on adding cross-mod implementation of Target Spy's crosshairs?

Also, I'm really glad this uses GZDoom's crosshair rather than making its own overlay or something. Works really well with silentzora's mods and Johnny Doom. I'd always wished something like this would exist and up until this mod, the only thing I've seen that does this is the optional custom crosshair function of Marrub's Lithium.

Seconded. Someone ought to sticky a topic with a link to the m8f toolbox somewhere conspicuously on the Projects page. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna just sneak this into my Trooper autoload sequence...

EDIT: I feel like I made some sort of rookie mistake, but...

Is there something I'm missing? If it helps, the crosshair is defined on a per-weapon basis, and switches between zoom and melee states. That said, the Precise Crosshair™ is as precise as is advertised, much to the dismay of my fixed reticles.

You should use a devbuild of GZDoom and disable your crosshair! Use the latest and best build!

Using this gives me flashbacks to Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast on top of fixing one of the biggest problems in GZDoom. Thank you so much for making this, it will have a permanent spot in my load order regardless of what I'm playing with. ^_^

Reminds me of Arma 2, I'm a bit surprised nobody made this sooner.

This uses 3 hacks, and that's exactly 3 hacks more that would be accepted to the engine :D

Yes. Actually, see the changelog for version 1.2.
Someone64 wrote:Also, I'm really glad this uses GZDoom's crosshair rather than making its own overlay or something.
I have to disappoint you, but it does use its own overlay. It's made to look exactly the same as the GZDoom crosshair, though.
Someone64 wrote:the only thing I've seen that does this is the optional custom crosshair function of Marrub's Lithium.
Laser Sight mod does basically the same, too.

The update is here (v1.2). Changes:

* added a cvar (pc_y) with Y position for other mods to read;
* added options to disable precise crosshair on slot 1 and when weapon is not ready;
* added options to flip the crosshair horizontally and vertically;
* added an on/off switch.
