Hi,
I'm not really interested in modifying anything besides crosshair. I've looked through those .tga files in skins/default folder, but haven't noticed anything corsshair alike.

Can anyone drop me a bone how to make myself a dot or cross alike crosshair? Like which file to modify and what's the idea behind changing crosshair?

Ah. In that case. No. It is not contained within any of the skins .tga files. And is only referenced in the aforementioned file.

So how are people making their own crosshairs? Adding their own .tga and messing with code or what?

they're adding it to another ui like the health window on a blank area, and apparently it's perfectly leagal. it's also why saying any weapon is more accurate then any other is a joke. and why the reticle changing size is a cool feature that doesn't do squat.

Ok so anybody knows which file hold "target" graphics? I have target health bar close to crosshair anyway so would like to work on that.

Is it the bars in grfx_gui.tga?

OK i've managed to add a crosshair, based on tutorial and saint's dot ui i've modified status window. But i have my hp bar quite low, which leavs me with a lot of unclickable space.
