Crosshair/Hud does not line up with game display

Postby devilemporium » Wed Jul 25, 2018 3:47 pm

So I've had this issue with a couple hud mods on top of gameplay mods. Basically, the crosshair appears to be in the center of the screen (It looks like it is) But then with mods such as BD21 Dynamic Hud, BD21 and PB 3.0, when ADSing, the crosshair very visibly does not line up with the actual sights. The Dynamic Hud mod also appears to be slightly more offset to the left side of the screen instead of being directly centered. I'm not sure if this has to do with my aspect ratio (16:9) or any of the scaling options? Help would be appreciated especially would be nice to know if this is something the mod authors would have to fix on their end or if it's a problem on my end.

Please post some screenshots. Otherwise this will be a guess-game.

I used force default crosshair as aiming down sights while make the crosshair disappear with the mentioned option turned off. I know this seems nitpicky but I was wondering if this could be fixed as I'm getting serious OCD feelings from knowing that the hud and crosshair don't line up with the display properly.

The gun sprites probably just aren't aligned correctly, not the crosshair.

Thats so minimal, you can hardly tell. Ive seen ur screenshots so the best advise i can give is to go into ur nvidia control panel and make sure that you have the correct hardware selected for this(manage 3d settings) change some other properties if that isnt the issue. good luck

How would that even help?

Anyway, I think wildweasel is correct here.

The engine's crosshair is always at the screen's center. If some weapon does not align with that it's the weapon's problem, not the engine's. That's even ignoring that it is generally not reliably doable to keep a selected pixel of the HUD sprite perfectly centered.
