Crosshair creation: Recommended tools?

So what do you xhair makers out there suggest?
I’ve been using one from the “Nathan’s Crosshair” pack and it’s quite nice, but could use a tweak or two
Not to mention I got a a few hundred from UT2004 that I’d like to convert over(well, not all of them)

ms paint

Unless it can handle font files(ttf), that doesn’t help much

there is a program called font creator open the the file with the crosshair with that and u can edit it.

Got that one, but the trial has expired so it won’t let me save :frowning:

It does save. instead of ctrl+S to save just exit then it asks you to save so save and next tiem you load up u see the modifications, I am on day 140 of 30 day trial and it does save.

Nice tip Keefy

GG_Loophole :smiley:

haha nice way to fool the program keefy :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Shhhhhh, don’t say that so loud! :laughing:

Excelent topic :exclamation: Just what I needed to outline my white and not-so-good-for-bright-areas big dot crosshair. :mrgreen:

Thx a lot.


EDIT (instead of double posting):

Now I’m confused: I opened halflife2.ttf and, not knowing much about the font editor yet, I just added a circle around the crosshair to see if I could see any change ingame. I do see a change, but rather drastic. The game resets the crosshair to the default one.

Can’t tell what’s happening here…

just download it from a torrent i found one but I’m reluctant to post the link, not sure how wt feels about posting pirated material. :mrgreen:

I know the solution is listed on this forum somewhere, but I haven’t been on here in months so I couldn’t tell ya :frowning:

We can’t have anything illegal post here. If people were to send links to each other privately by PM there is not much I can do to prevent that.

Actually, the solution to my problem was in another topic. Clientscheme file.
Now I can it no matter what.

Big bag of bobbins that app it doesnt seem to work on win7 64bits. I will stick wth font creator, they patched the latest release so now it doesnt save using that exploit :frowning:

In your Clientscheme.res file, find (under FONTS) crosshairs, and add
“outline” “1”
on the line after
“yres” “1 10000”

so it looks like

Crosshairs
		{
			"1"
			{
				"name"		"HalfLife2"
				"tall"		"40"
				"weight"	"0"
				"antialias" "0"
				"additive"	"0"
				"custom"	"1"
				"yres"		"1 10000"
				"outline" "1"
			}
		}

Voila! black outline

im pretty sure this is in nates or neo’s xhair pack you can change the xhair and it will still give u teh outline :question:

talk to neo, i gave him a xhair i attempted to make in some cheap free POS program, and he hooked it up mag niggerish style
