Download Xhair?

Are there any ways to download a custom xhair without having to download a hud aswell? Reason being I think default hud is best but you need a custom xhair (dot or square) and i always direct new players to here, but i see in downloads that you can only download a hud + xhair :/

You cant separately download crosshair from current HUDs, but it is not that hard to make default HUD with custom outlined xhair. Learn my comprehensive guide to do it.

i downloaded my current crosshair from hl2dm university back in the day. it was just a xhair and no hud. It should be an option today still. I think custom HUD's are not good default is best but thats just my oppinion. fancy huds dont help you to learn pro skill and brain, in fact they distract you. All you need is a nice xhair of a dot or square

So you do not mind about outline on crosshair? It makes things easier. If you want to replace your crosshair with another one all you need is to open halflife2.ttf font with font creator and replace "Q" glyph with the one you want :)

You can use as reference the one i posted here for xhairs based on fonts : http://hl2dm.net/e107_plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?4572.0#post_4577

@Quaz I Did a small remod of this previous HUD to match more or less of what you are saying and seeking centering on the use of Materials for crosshairs.See Below[Modded Default HUD(Sprite xhair)]:

Modded Default HUDs*DLs updated
1.Modded Default HUDs(Font xhair).


DL: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9r4hxlxL-tbeUZ6SmNldWNHTnM/edit?usp=sharing

Specifications:
·Added Surfaceproperties.txt mod
·Red screen fix added(low version from hl2dm.net)
·Slam xhair Sprite disabled
·Default General Hud colors
·Dot xhair outlined, green color (Fonts)
·Beep Sound Disabled 0.0 ms
·Hud Events animations<Default
·Language files integrated at default
·The rest<Default
*Added new DL

Disabling outline(Fonts)

Open with a text editor the file "clientscheme.res" located at
X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp\custom\my_custom_stuff\resource

Search for those lines:
HalfLife2
{
"1"
{
"name" "HalfLife2"
"tall" "40"
"weight" "0"
"additive" "0"
"yres" "1 10000"
"outline" "1"
}
}



Set "outline" "1" to "0"

2.Modded Default HUD(Sprite xhair).

Specifications:

--Same specifications as the first one,changed xhair type:
·Square(def)& Dot(changeable), green color,non outlined,no additive ,100 % centered(Sprites)


DL: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9r4hxlxL-tbYTlDSWFTa1VybUk/edit?usp=sharing

Dot.Non outlined.No additive.Pixelated:



Square.Non outlined.No additive.Pixelated:



*This package contains 2 crosshairs working as materials or sprites(vtf,vmt).Square crosshair is set as main but you can change to the dot included in the package or to any other manufactured Material crosshair.

Selecting/Changing a crosshair(Sprites)

For selecting a crosshair follow the next steps:

1.Go to the crosshair directory for material types:
X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp\custom\DefaultHUDMod\materials\vgui\replay\thumbnails

You will find that a material crosshair is composed of VTF(graphic) and VMT(properties)

3.Edit VMT so it have the same filename as the VTF file,for example:if dot.vtf,set dot.vmt

4.Edit "image" "/x/(path)" to match with your selected xhair in hudlayout.res,that you can find at :
X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp\custom\my_custom_stuff\scripts.

The xHair element for selecting materials based xhairs is found in the first lines on my package:

xHair
{
"ControlName" "ImagePanel"
"fieldName" "xHair"
"xpos" "c-6"
"ypos" "c-6"
"zpos" "-2"
"wide" "12"
"tall" "12"
"pinCorner" "0"
"visible" "1"
"enabled" "1"
"image" "replay\thumbnails\square"
"scaleImage" "1"
}


If you want to select a Dot xhair,change "image" adding a existent path for your xhair,for example "replay\thumbnails\square"

5.Edit your VMT with a texteditor for indicating the right VTF file that will work with:

When you edit it ,you will see some properties like this:

UnlitGeneric
{
"$baseTexture" "vgui\replay\thumbnails\square"
$translucent 1
$alpha 1
$vertexalpha 1
$ignorez 1
$no_fullbright 1
$vertexcolor 1
}




If we want to select a Dot xhair,change "$baseTexture" adding a existent path for your xhair,for example "vgui\replay\thumbnails\dot"

Changing crosshair size and centering(Sprites)

2nd Method from Sprites Crosshair guide

Go to X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp\custom\my_custom_stuff\scripts.

Edit Hudlayout.res
xHair
{
"ControlName" "ImagePanel"
"fieldName" "xHair"
"xpos" "c-6"
"ypos" "c-6"
"wide" "12"
"tall" "12"
"pinCorner" "0"
"visible" "1"
"enabled" "1"
"image" "replay\thumbnails\square"
"scaleImage" "1"
}


-Size and Centering is correlated ,xhair tends to move when changing his own resolution.

For changing the xhair size you can use the folllowing "formula":
"wide","tall" = X(same value for both)
"ypos,xpos= wide:2,tall:2" moving from center "C-"

Example:

"xpos" "c-24"
"ypos" "c-24"
"wide" "48"
"tall" "48"


This code is usable too for crosshair based off fonts.


Hope it helps for those who want to use default HUDs in a competitive environment or for those who wants to start editing his own huds from a fixed default package without outdated components, Regards MINO

Fonts.Building crosshairs on Default Huds

What you need?

·Original Halflife2.ttf,you can get one from:
/hl2/resource dir
Downloading it http://www.dafont.com/es/halflife2.font
Extracting it from hl2mp_pak_dir.vpk with GCFscape tool

·Font Editor,High-logic provides great professional tools for Font management and editing,I find it very suitable tool for editing Source games fonts.
http://www.high-logic.com/
http://www.high-logic.com/font-editor/fontcreator.html
High Logic 6.5 Full K3z Dropbox
Font Crosshair Guide


Editing

Open Halflife2.ttf with a font editor.The Editor should show you the list of glyphs that represent each character in-game.



The default crosshair glyph is labeled at "Q"

Open it a new window will show up,where you can edit with freedom in the selected area the font.

*I find useful Importing images Or vector graphics into glyphs,feature that provides us exclusively a professional font editor.For doing that Right click on editing area<Import image<,recommending to set a picture with a white/black background color over the graphic object to represent.





Will recommend to use "antialias" "1"(clientscheme.res<Halflife2 Header) for crosshairs based on detailed shapes,with a non-linear structure

Use the displacement tool to center your crosshair,you can use the the previous crosshair to center it and remove it when the job is done.Highlogic provides various tools for setting Metrics and scripts for centering that u can find useful.

Save As<X:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp\custom\my_custom_stuff\resource as TrueTypeFont .ttf

I appreciate your thorough responses Mino and Derp but some players dont have the time to make their own xhairs. I was just asking for there to be an option in the downloads section of this site to download an xhair without having to download a hud along with it. It should be an option, I advise all new players to take a dot or square xhair and keep default hud.
