I haven't decided yet if that feature will depend on loaded TargetSpy or it will work without TargetSpy.

In any case, it will be an option that is Off by default.

Bugs!

Post by vapidscum »

Some bugs I probably should've brought up sooner:
Target Spy crosshair gets offset when not fullscreen
Max distance + weirdness with it and no respect for crouching

The max distance issue has been less of an annoyance than I thought it would be when I found it, though after playing through Lost Civilization's massive spaces, I gotta bring it up.

Thanks for reporting! Sorry, but I won't be able to fix it quickly. Other doomish stuff consumes my time.

Hey, no problem, just wanted to make sure they're known.

Sudden update! v1.4 is out.

Fixes:
- aim when crouching;
- weirdness with big distance.

New:
- enhanced health color from GZDoom is ported;
- an option to show target health instead of player health;
- y position change is slightly smoother.

Also, Tekish added Vertical style for HitMarkers, so it's now more or less compatible with Precise Crosshair. Check it out, if you haven't already, it's a cool add-on, together with other things from Simple UI Add-ons.

One more thing: I vaguely remember that Precise Crosshair is displayed when the player looked through a security camera, but it shouldn't be. I checked on Doom 64: Retribution, and there it's OK. So, if you find a map where looking through a camera displays Precise Crosshair, please let me know.

Virtually everything m8f makes should be booted into GZDoom and standardized. This one in particular. Because now I can be sure I am aiming at the dying imp's head for that +5 Health Bonus instead of hitting the body!

Yes, but I have to warn you that Precise Crosshair uses a hack for calling play-scoped functions from ui code. I'd rather refactor it before including in other mods.

Playing this with Russian Overkill; after picking the Yellow Junk Box, which allows to dual-wield your starting pistol, the crosshair disappears when I switch to my pistol. Oddly, it still shows up with the other Slot 2 weapon (the satchel).

Set "Disable when weapon is not ready" option to "Nyet!" (off).

Why? I don't know at the moment. Created an issue so I don't forget.

It works really well, but for some reason it won't appear if the crosshair is set to none, but as I said, it work really well

It says "Default crosshair must be not None" - emphasis on that "not."
