About that reticle...

Postby TheZealotQ » Wed May 04, 2011 5:55 am

I dont know who made the hires reticle on descent2.de whether its ausred or dhowett, so I dont know who to direct this query to.

Is it possible to make the central X element of the reticle highlight green when the vulcan/gauss cannon is equipped, and to flash when either weapon is fired. Come to think of it, center weapons include spreadfire and helix cannon as well. Perhaps the center should be highlighted for those weapons as well.

I think these changes would be logically consistent with the design of the reticle

Anyone else agree with me? Could someone point me at who made the reticle so that some changes can be made?

I can always submit this to sourceforge as a feature request too if thats preferable.

Thanks.

I think it was dhowett. I also think only some coding would be required to realize that feature. Please post a feature request.

sourceforge request is up, but I forgot to login first, so its anonymous.

I checked: dhowett hasnt been online in 3 years.

It's a long shot, but you could try an email or PM. Even if his email adress isn't in his profile he may have still opted to be notified by email of new PMs. Of course it won't work if he's not using the same email.
It's worth a try. I was able to contact Kruel a few years ago using his email adress from PD.com.

I know that when I become inactive on a board where I've contributed something I set email notifications for PMs to on so that if someone wants to reach me to use my work they can.
