[Reticles] mXHairs 2.1

[spoiler=Find your fancy -- Fullsize Preview]Yes, I know a bunch don't seem practical.
Those are requests.

Made out of a desire to have Quake 3/4's amount of crosshair customization, which then spiraled out of control at the people's whim.
2.1 focuses on choices tailored to both low-res and emerging ultra-hd resolutions.

Installation
Place the .pk3 file into your skins folder in your Z& directory (Zandronum\skins). They will be available in the usual ingame menu selection.

[spoiler=How to add, edit, or swap reticles from previous versions]As there are only 99 slots, some oddballs have been pushed out of the file to make room for new variations.

All images in this pack are 99x99 PNG images with 49y:49x offsets in Slade. If you modify any reticle, remember to draw it in grayscale and save as truecolour (32-bit) PNG. Then, set their offsets in Slade once you import them to the .pk3 file. They must be named "xhairb<number>.png" to register as a crosshair. Only xhairb1 through xhairb99 are supported.[/spoiler]

[spoiler=Fair warning to non-Windows players and those running on old graphics hardware]Without DirectX, ZDoom nor any derivatives (incl. Zandronum) can process alpha blending on the HUD, which includes crosshairs. When this happens, these reticles will appear as a big coloured square with shaped holes in it.

If you're one of these people, you're not SOL for custom reticles.
BMP-formatted two-tone custom crosshairs can be made by using a cyan, grey, and black palette as such:

Image

Be aware that these are limited to solid and 50% translucent. Any shade of grey will be regarded as 50% transparency, and black is solid. Cyan is rendered as invisible, like standard Doom sprites.

Oh yeah, and very low resolutions (<640x480) use files named xhairs## ("small"), tiny versions of xhairb## ("big"). Since I don't care to redraw tiny versions of each one, this will not work on such resolutions and will appear as ZDoom's crosshair 1.[/spoiler]

Awesome, cheers. I've been in need of a crosshair with a surrounding area around a mid-point (Good for SSG I find). Xhairb63 does this nicely. Thanks for this! :P

Do these crosshairs work with ZDoom as well?

There should be one that helps with straferunning. :) Strife's aiming powerup does something like that.

Most usable crosshairs for me. Good for nailgun/warlock Ice hands aiming.

Now finally the custom crosshairs are here! I always had trouble finding where everyone got their crosshairs.

Did you make them Medi? If so, well done! :)

Thank you for this.

Straferunning crosshair in strife? Naww man, that was a Targeter and all it did was show how much your weapons spread.

And yeah, I just scribbled them up in Paint.net. Doesn't mean I designed all of them, I saw some of these in other games then drew them like the rest (read: gradients everywhere).

Because reasons.

I updated because I somehow cared enough.

Bunch of creppy ones removed and replaced, and it now uses the slots that ST Expansion Pack used, so that's three extra, woo.

Your great work gives you good feel to customization of the game even more.

It works on zDoom, Skulltag, and Zandronum: any port that uses the XHAIRS format.

How can you create your own?
