Crosshair req (cant make it without screwing up)

Hey i can make most crosshairs normally but could someone make a set of the line ones that go like -- @ -- (with the @ just being a dot) i cant find any 1.1 ones all the older ones just go weird when you install em

I can. but they won't be dynamic. I can do dynamic, but then you can only have one and not a set, because of the way different files are treated.

What gets messed up exactly? Which xhair file are you editing?

How would I keep the dynamic crosshair the way it is but just eliminate the very top piece of the cross hair. Leaving just the sides and the bottom, but still dynamic. Thanx :D

I don't think you can make a dynamic xhair in 1.1 that has only bottom and not a top. In the dodcross.spr file, there are only two prongs of the plus, but one gets used as both top and bottom, and one as both left and right, so if you get rid of the top you won't have a bottom either. If you want a dynamic xhair, you are very very very limited in what you can do. If you don't care about it being dynamic, you can do whatever you want, because that is in a totaly different file that is handled differently.

Hey i dont want it dynamic just -- + -- (with the + just being a dot)

I'm not sure I fully understand. Do you want a dot as your xhair, or do you want a dot with a prongs on each side but without prongs on the top and bottom.

If all you want is a dot all by itself, then go to and look on the main page. That is my clan and the very first xhairs I ever made are on the main page. (I've made some better ones since that I use, but they aren't up there.) The pic I attatched is a jpeg of the xhairs on my clan site.

If you want a dot that has the prongs of a plus shaped xhair on either side, but not on the top or bottom, then I can make that in about 2 secs and post it here. There are 15 other slots in the file though, so you if you want anything else...

EDIT: and if you do want the prongs on either side as I suspect, then to you want them to have gaps in the middle, like your sort-of picture, or do you want them to be continuous lines?

EDIT#2: and I'm curious, if you can make other xhairs just fine, what are you screwing up on this design? It doesn't make sense to me, that's why I thought you were trying to make it dynamic.

If the xhair in the upper left of this pic is wht you want let me know.

EDIT: the pic u c here is of the xhairs I'm using now, with the exception of the one in the upper left, which in my file is just the single dot in the middle.
