Which Hi-Res Reticle?

Postby Weyrman » Tue Jul 28, 2009 8:29 am

Diedel,

Your update note for 1.14.65 was

D2X-XL can highlight the reticle in red when a target is in the player's line of fire (single player and coop only; install the new hires reticle textures to enable this feature)

Are you talking about http://www.descent2.de/downloads/textur ... ticles.rar ?

Its just that I downloaded and unpacked it but it doesn't seem to work.

Does there anything ever work for you out of the box? You need to extract these reticles to the textures folder.

Seems not for some reason - I did unpack them to the textures folder. :?

Did it again and checked - no go. Why is my setup retarded?

odd. I dowloaded the hires reticle that was on the d2xxl main download page and mine works. I downloaded and extracted into textures folder, then I was good to go.

Weyrman wants the reticle that turns red when a target is in the line of fire. I installed it on two different Windows and two different Linux boxes, and it works on all of them.

That reticle is contained in http://www.descent2.de/downloads/textur ... ticles.rar which needs to be extracted to the textures folder.

Please don't beat me!

I relented and did a total re-install of descent and guess what? The reticle now works as its supposed to. Even the damage indicator works correctly too. :oops: :oops: :oops: :)

Re: Which Hi-Res Reticle?

Hey guys, just joined so go easy on me! ;-)

I'm looking for the reticle that turns red when a target is in the line of fire. I checked the link in this thread (link below), but i don't see the 'ticles.rar' in any of the texture content as stated. (i haved downloaded and extracted all the extras for my new install of D2X-XL)

http://www.descent2.de/downloads/textur ... ticles.rar

Can someone help me out?
Thanks.

After you go to that link, mouse over the sidemenu and it'll expand. Click "Hires Textures" (which is just under "Downloads"). It should be somewhere near the bottom of that page I think.

Could Karx beat Weyrman in a game of D2X-XL... entropy or enhanced ctf... with "darkness"... then I could join with the tracker so I can finally try out those features... and 13 other players could come so it's a 16 player game... because my LAN still doesn't like D2X-XL...
