  • Colored crosshairs?

    Hi All,

    Is it possible to select a different color crosshair than the default of white? I looked in the game menus but was not able to find the option. I know it exists in vanilla UT2k4 - would this be something that could make it in a future patch or can I change this by editing my config directly? <or am I just blind and it's already in a menu??>

    Reason I ask is I find it difficult, if not impossible, to see the white crosshair when using flares currently. Minor annoynance really but if it's already in-game or something simple to add it would be cool.

    Thanks.

    The crosshair is more of a... mouse cursor then a normal crosshair. This means you can't change it like you can in UT2k4.
    It should be possible to add a few to choose between, tho.

        Frankly, we could do with a new default colour, one that's visible with flares. After all, what's the point of lighting up the area so you can see the aliens if you can no longer aim at them?

          Yeah I use bright red in UT and would do the same in AS given the choice. Not a problem just a personal preference.

                It would be sweet if we could get a crosshair that looked like when we werent shooting and when we were shooting and killed an alien, and looked like if we were shooting at a team mate and when we TKed...that would be sooo cool ^^ \m/

                    How about a cursor color that "polarize" whatever is being rendered behind it? Sort of like when you highlight colored text in a web browser, you get a color that's always a stark contrast of the colors around it. Would it be hard to implement in UT2K4?

                        I vote we get rid of the damn flares at least even the lighting out and make them not so bright, even with a modest amount of gamma which is required to see anything normally they wash everything out.

                          My suggestion would be to have one like the normal one but instead of plain white have it pulse a darker color to the outer edges of the crosshair, and create it in at least the six primary/secondary colors.

                            i like the flares...they give eveyrone one the team w/o autoaim autoaim ^-^. very very helpful sometimes...but yea...a new crosshair color would be extremely useful, i've become so fed up with the flares blocking out the crosshair i refuse to use them in salvage at the end anymore --;;

                            Wait a sec...I thought you said Crash always died O.o....I'm not dead yet

                              I wish I could disable crosshair altogether. It's always the best aiming practice you can get in any game.
