    they only show up in a team game, ie team deathmatch, ctf etc.. so not in normal deathmatch... if they don't work in those there is something definatly up with it.

    so do i :) the weapon code turns the normal crosshair on every tick if the custom one isn't being used.

    This is definitely on the fast track to breaking away from the "just another laser sight" mod I played at first.

    /me is very impressed at what has been done with something as simple of an idea as a laser sight

    If you could possibly implement something like the UT crosshair colour-sliders, only make that for the laser, BAM! one hell of a laser sight mod. I see configurable length of the laser has already been discussed too :)

    This is excellent man, excellent.

    i think the colour slider thing is totally imposible in UT, its specific to the hud, so no luck there im afraid. i'll figure out the mod menu stuff eventually, probably next week cos i've got a lot on this week.

    only cos u keep the cool sugestions coming :) don't stop though, i still want your ideas :)

    Well then in that case, maybe take the colours from the UT HUD, and implement them to the laser so you can choose the colour of your laser in DM play. Team games would force you to use team colours. Blue team, blue laser.

    I mean, if that can be done :)

    hey I wonder if you can use those color schemes???

    the HUD colors should be just as usable as any other color tint :hmm:

    Heh, i noticed that when you're targeted from the front, the red dot of doom appears in your view... quite nice, but it might be interesting if it blinded you. ;)

    Looks good.. it would be cool if you could shut the thing off with a keystroke because it gives away your position.

    Also if it could shut off with indirect firing weapons or something like the impact hammer or translocator. Definitely those two, and probably the snot gun too.

    Sounds like a cool mod.
    Probably end up being as popular as DarkMatch /jk

    Be nice if it had some ambient sound to warn those who had a "spot" on them, even thou I know light doesn't make sound, you can't really see the "dot" on yourself in the game, so some compensation to alert a player they're targeted would be a nice addition (bWarnPlayer type stuff)

    i will do a new version (eventually)

    i've got some pretty important exams soon, so i not doing any coding at the moment, but after that i may do a bit more, like get the mod menu working etc...

    GRIND: you can, in the preferences => controls you can assign a button to turn it on/off.
