3.1 To 1.0 Crosshair Idea

05-09-2003, 01:25 AM
I was thinking that since so many people are learning how to edit the hud.txt file in the dod/sprites folder, that maybe someone who is good t this could make it so that the cross_style_2_dot could be made...say 24 by 24 pixels, which would be large enough to fit most 3.1 crosshairs into. Then you could make the vertical and horizontal sizes be like 1 pixel and have nothing in them. I am very unfamiliar with editing the hud.txt and the first two numbers (Top Left X, Top Left Y) have me totally confused. Anyway, could someone talented with the hud.txt editing try this out?

I did this and it didn't work, because the middle of the dot will always be the first pixel in the top left corner, regardless of size.

Are you sure? If this were so then any crosshair with a dot bigger than 1 pixel wouldn't be accurate form the middle of the dot, but rather from the top left...

BTW, you above this post ^

Yes, Ikujinonai is correct. Don't know why it works that way, but it does.
