#24 Non HUD Custom Crosshairs Perfectly Centered in Customization
E-thugIts not working for me either. script running but nothing showing up.

The readme file stupidly doesn't tell you which version of AutoHotkey is needed to run the script, which is moronic. Here's the version you need (image) and here's a link to the AutoHotkey downloads page.

FerduxI have the script working. For me, I had to install the Unicode 32-bit version instead of the Unicode 64-bit version.

Certainly is a strange way of doing it, but if it works, it works! But this is the correct version (image) that you need from the AutoHotkey downloads page.

LinKr_Is there a way to use it for any resolution?

By all means give it a go, tell me if it works. Only tried it on a 1920x1080 resolution myself.

WARHURYEAHDoesn't work for me, I run TF2 in a border less window as well, will dual monitors cause a problem?

Possibly. Once again I couldn't comment since I run a single monitor setup. Check that the script is running in the processes tab in task manager. (Should look like this)

In the readme file it doesn't tells you which version of AutoHotkey to install, which is increadibly moronic. You need to install this version (image) from here. I'll update the readme file myself to include this I suppose since it should be in there anyway.

This may help, but it might just find the center point between your two monitors, causing you to see no crosshair at all, or edges of it at the sides of your monitors. :/

SpannzerChrom3w0lfWARHURYEAHI feel like I'm going to look stupid, but there's nothing in that script zip file.
Look harder

jk there isnt anything

No idea why it's empty, just downloaded it from my dropbox and it's full.

I'll edit the original post now with a new link.

Everything's fine with the link now! Dropbox is strange sometimes. Apparently it uploaded an earlier version of the zip folder for whatever reason.

#1873 Show your HUD modifications! in Customization

Here's a method I found to have non HUD crosshairs in TF2 and any game. It allows you to keep your custom crosshair between HUDs wihout faffing around with HUD files and whatnot. Also the crosshairs are always perfectly centered! :D

#3 Non HUD Custom Crosshairs Perfectly Centered in Customization
Chrom3w0lfSpannzerI have also included some of TF2's default crosshairs to be used as a way to bypass crosshair animations such as when using the Ambassador.This is extremely cool, would it be possible to use any png or change the colors of the crosshair parts individually?

I used Pixlr to make my crosshairs. If you zoom in all the way (with the mouse wheel) it allows you to edit the images pixel by pixel, and change the colours of whole segments of the crosshairs via the fimiliar paint bucket tool.

As far as using any PNG goes, I've only used a 600x600 pixel transparent window to make my crosshairs. I felt that it was more than enough space for a wide variety of crosshair designs.

#1 Non HUD Custom Crosshairs Perfectly Centered in Customization

By delving in to what remains of the competitive Tribes: Ascend community I have discovered their preferred method of using custom crosshairs. Instead of customising their HUDs as we do, they run their game in a 1920x1080 borderless window and run an AutoHotkey script to force a PNG image onto the top layer of their screens (therefore above the game window). This allows the crosshairs to be used in any FPS game that can be ran in a 1920x1080 borderless window! The script itself allows for a square PNG image to be automatically centered. Using a free online image editor I was able to create a number of sample crosshairs for you to download to try out (A little over 50).

I have also included some of TF2's default crosshairs to be used as a way to bypass crosshair animations such as when using the Ambassador.

A link to my copy of the AutoHotkey script EDIT: The zip folder now has everything inside it, Dropbox uploaded an earlier version of the zip folder for whatever reason.
Someone else's instructions on how to get TF2 to run in a fullscreen borderless window

Note: Many of the crosshairs I've made are based heavily on other people's crosshairs from a multitude of HUDs I've used over the years.

The crosshairs I've made are made using a 600x600 transparent square with a perfectly centered 2x2 pixels square as a starting point, I encourage you to do the same by editing my crosshairs with image editors yourself to change things like colours or the actual crosshairs themselves to your liking. Remember to save the images as PNG files to allow the space of the 600x600 window not taken up by the crosshair to be transparent. I myself have not yet tried making crosshairs in windows larger/smaller than a 600x600 window, so I can't comment on it.

The crosshair script itself (obviously) is not affected by sv_pure since it's basically a more advanced way of sticking coloured tape to the middle of your screen.

The script allows for two active crosshairs that are toggled by the "END" key. (Press end to cycle between your first crosshair, then your alternate crosshair, then again to make the crosshair invisible)

The readme file in the folder the script comes in explains how to install AutoHotkey and change the toggle button and things like that.

To change what your two active crosshairs are, rename a crosshair's file name to either: Crosshair or Alternate and move them to the same folder as xhair2

I hope others find this as useful as I have, I've tried my best to cover any questions that may be raised by readers.

EDIT: Some people are experiencing FPS drops while using this, if you are karppoh has disclosed on this thread that this is due to Windows Aero forcing v-sync on while running TF2 in Windowed mode. To disable Windows Aero follow these instructions. I personally have reduced FPS while not running Aero and running the crosshair script however. Experiment with both if you are having FPS issues.

You can use a free online image editor such as Pixlr to edit the crosshairs' colours and whatnot. Make sure to save it as a PNG.
