#5 help with cfg.tf weapon specific crosshair in Q/A Help

What's in your User folder shouldn't have anything to do with what's in your Custom folder so it's not that afaik

Either way if you wanna use cfg.tf here's how:

https://i.imgur.com/fuv63ur.png

Step 1: Click on first dropdown (soda popper in screenshot)
Step 2: Select first item in list (Scattergun, FaN, Backscatter)
Step 3: Select the crosshair these 3 weapons should use in the other dropdown (in the screenshot I chose Brackets)
Step 4: Press Add. You now see it get added to the list (items with the red cross symbol in my screenshot)

Step 5: Now repeat this for every weapon in that first dropdown list.
You also have the option to pick custom explosions for rocket launchers and such
(these are simply smaller to avoid visual clutter. If you don't know/need them then don't bother)

Step 6: Download Package
Step 7: Unzip the crosshairs.zip, put the unzipped folder called Crosshairs in Custom
Step 8: cl_crosshair_file "" (or the None crosshair in Options > Multiplayer, but you know how to use console)

https://i.imgur.com/44xegcw.png

Here's an example of my own setup. note the path tf\custom\crosshairs\materials\vgui\replay\thumbnails

All that matters for you is that you have the folder in tf\custom. cfg.tf already does all the work for you after you select a crosshair for each weapon. You just need to make sure you put the folder in the right place.

Everything underneath is additional information so you can find if anything went wrong

The files in the Thumbnails folder are the crosshair images (VTF files)
The VMT files are simple txt files that help the game handle the VTF images
Cfg.tf's folder should look the same but there will be way more VTF images in this folder (all the ones available on the site)

https://i.imgur.com/wXK7VBC.png

in the Crosshair folder you'll find a Scripts folder.
This contains a bunch of txt files. These txt files are what tells the game what a certain weapon's stats are. Here is where the path leading to the None crosshair is changed (you'll find the Thumbnail folder path near the bottom of these files)

For reference I currently have 76 files in the scripts folder. if you're missing one you can check manually here. Any missing file will result in you not having a custom crosshair for those weapons

If you wanna know why and how this works:
The Thumbnails folder is used by the game for thumbnail previews of the old replay system.
Since this can theoretically be any image of in-game gameplay it is not checked by sv_pure 2.
The txt files for the weapons consider this a valid path for crosshairs. So combining the crosshairs in the unchecked Thumbnails folder and the txt files for weapon stats you can alter the in-game None crosshair to use custom images

It's not a big deal. I have almost no memories of it happening anyway.

#12 HOW TO MAKE VTF CROSSHAIRS in Customization

The website's been down for a long time already. There was a page on the site that was still accessible w all the downloads but I can't seem to find it atm. Might've gone down too by now

I've tried looking for plug-ins instead. I used a plug-in for gimp in the past which could save images directly as VTFs so VTFedit wasn't needed. Some sites went down, but maybe this works? I do not have gimp downloaded atm so I can't test it
gimp plug-in github (untested atm)
paint.net plug-in I use this for making crosshairs

#14 etf2l admins in TF2 General Discussion

These people are clearly just trying to be shitters and should learn their actions have consequences.
I feel if users of your platform are concerned w the behaviour of other users on your platform that should fall within the scope of ETF2L.

clearly stuff like this should be out of line

private discordIn the same admin request we brought up how an active gamer was acting really homophomic, promising to hunt down and kill players on lan due to their sexual alignment.

#5 Tob's Crosshairs in Customization
bijlolgreat job, nice to see that they are white (at least tobdot) so you can set color yourself :-). doesn't show that on the screenshots though!

yea all of them are white, but imgur dislikes transparent backgrounds so I make them all green with a white background layer

VTF names will be changed so these might be outdated in the future or not include all crosshairs

#1 Tob's Crosshairs in Customization

I've been making crosshairs for a couple years now, but never really made any of them easily available to the public (not counting that one time 200 asked me for a couple of crosshair packs which ended up becoming cfg.tf's crosshair pack in which I accidentally included 3 "tob" crosshairs)

Github
Preview (crosshairs are all white, just green for the preview)

Recent changes

  • Fixed Tob_WingsCross' black outlines' edges not being colored black (both variations)
    fix (compare left and right wing). cfg.tf most likely has the non-fixed version
  • Increased gradient's contrast on the Diabotical Open Cross

Current features

  • Some VTF crosshairs I made. Some based on requests, some inspired by other crosshairs
  • No VMT files. 1 VMT takes 1 minute to create. Tutorial on github. All you do is change 1 line of text and rename a file.

To Do

  • Scour my folders for more crosshairs to upload
  • Rename the crosshairs to make it easier to read
  • Create preview images for all the crosshairs
  • Youtube tutorial for how I make crosshairs. Leth's tutorial works just fine, but I make them a bit differently. I skip the VTFedit step using a plug-in
  • Clear out my dropbox. i've been using dropbox to share crosshairs until this point, but I will eventually clear the whole thing out and upload useful ones on github. This will kill most dropbox links I've posted (if I ever do it. Low priority)

I will consider making crosshairs when requested.
Keep in mind I don't want to spend time making VTF crosshairs that might see use for 1 day or already exist as VTF but look slightly different. You're able to use mine (wip) or Leth's tutorials to edit the crosshair yourself.
I don't have any talents in design or art so your result will likely be as good as mine if not better

#566 Wut hud/crosshair/cfg thread in Customization

Looks the same to me unless AMP slightly changed the outline himself. Send me a PM on TFTV and I can make a different outline that suits you better :)

for now I took a random guess and thought maybe the outline seemed thicker on stream so I made a version with a thicker outline

Preview:

Download: https://github.com/KobeTob/TobVTF
In Brackets folder as Brackets_TobWingsCross_Thick.vtf
The github also has a txt file with steps on how to create a VMT file if you'd need it

#24 Funny highschool stories in Off Topic

Teacher was accused of murdering a prostitute. He didn't do it though. This was before he became a teacher of ours. For a year he was our "head teacher" which basically meant that he gave advice, answered special questions students might have and helped organise activities at the end of the year like going bowling/get pizza w the entire class. Chill dude. One of my best friends ran into him a couple years later at a festival and apparently he was high as fuck

Some weirdo threatened to stab a friend because weirdo's gf said he had a crush on the dude. Next day weirdo came to school with with some assassin's creed DIY hidden blade contraption with rubber bands. Attached to it was one of those shitty white plastic knives. He obviously did nothing. Friend did combat sport (forgot the name of it) so he would've regretted it
