Crosshair is off centre - any ideas to help?
« on: July 23, 2015, 09:54:04 AM »
 :rocketright:  Seems that QII comes with a bug that makes the crosshair slightly out.  Mine is a little too high - I can compensate, but have to remember that the crosshair is not where the (for example) rail shot will go     :-[  There is cg_crosshairX and Y as 0 but this does not help.  Anyone got any ideas?  bean$    :beer:

I'm using Q2Pro by the way.  I've also d/l'd KMQuake2 and it's exactly the same!  Also Berserker@Quake - that is just unplayable as it's way over the the right and to the floor almost.  Of them all, I prefer Q2Pro for multiplayer.  Would be good to get the crosshair and where the rail goes etc. spot on ...  bean$   :beer:

It depends on what gun position you're firing from I think. Left or right handed is gonna fire a little left or right of the center. And even from the center position, yeah, I think the stock crosshair is still inaccurate. You can make your own, and it's probably easier if you have an updated video driver for your client like r1gl or something else that can use PNG images. It takes a little bit of playing around with the image. Probably the best thing to do would be to make a crosshair that's whatever size you want, then add a couple hundred pixels to the whole thing and keep the center of the crosshair centered in the image. Then open the game, shoot a few times to see where you need to move the center dot, reopen the image, move it, try it again and see if it's where you want it yet, etc.

Also, I "think" you might also need to include a PCX version of the image with the same size so that the PNG will display at the proper size. The game tends to get pixel dimensions for images from the PCX and stretch any TGA or PNG images to the same overall size as the PCX.

 Thanks for the reply.  Think I might just have to compensate for the slight 'rise' of the crosshair   :dohdohdoh:   Been used to headshots, via sniper, on TF2.  bean$   :thumbsup:

Yes, if you're fortunate to have one of the new RTX video cards. (I don't, so I'm watching people stream raytraced Q2 on twitch instead.)
