Portal Beta Crosshair Variant

A GUI Mod for Portal

This is a crosshair I sort of gave up on. Me and a couple of other users were on the hunt for the portal beta crosshair, and I personally couldn't find it at all. I decided to recreate a replica with similar functionality.

This is the same crosshair you would see in early screenshots of the game or even on the steam store page.

As of this moment it is broken and CAN NOT be fixed due to how the crosshair natively works with the default scripting (that I assume is hard coded in the .dll). By broken you can see in the images I uploaded, the blue crescent doesn't highlight appropriately.

I included three versions in this download: One that has the feature of indicating the last portal fired correctly (being broken), and two others with no indication at all.

If anyone has an idea of how this issue can be fixed (I'm certain I tried everything), please either comment or PM me the ideal solution or direct download to a fix. Other than that the other two crosshairs packed in here are both functional with out previous portal indicator.







last videos in-game audio is loud sorry.

    to be honest, even in its broken state, your crosshair is the closest thing you can find to the original. Good Job! I don't have much experience with modifying dll's, but i'm still gonna take a look and see what I can do to fix it (and probably fail).
    I got my hands on the 2007 source code, I have yet to check the actual code for it. 

    Good luck
    Sorry for such a late reply, but really? May I ask where? I have been looking for it for a long time now.

    Really nice remake! Really is a shame that you couldn't get the problem fixed, but still, this is the closest that you can find so far!

    Say all you want really, I'm the one who spent WAY too much time making this so I say what goes. 

    Thanks for your input though, much appreciated.

    Well, IMO idea is a part of development, but okay...

    I think you should credit Valve for the original crosshair's concept.

    A concept is just an idea, in this case I had no physical copy of any assets at all what so ever. I built this crosshair 100% from the ground up and spent countless days for something so ridiculously tedious. 

    I might of thought about it if Valve made crosshair replacement somewhat easy, but in this case I literately had to counter-act pre scripted offsets and every design flaw. Since there is no way to actually determine the real value of these offsets it requires restarting the game hundreds of times with little 1 pixel adjustments.

    So no, I shall not credit Valve for this crosshair. In all honesty, Valve could've made this crosshair probably in less than an hour and a half if they fixed all the shitty alignment problems that fucked the original crosshair.
