Hi, I want to change my crosshair. Yes, I know, you think I'm another idiot who doesn't know anything, but when I looked into half-life.gcf file, I found an interesting file, called crosshairs.spr. I modified it and placed it in valve/sprites/ where it was in the .gcf file, but when I went ingame, nothing happened? Advice please? The files are here: Picture, if you cant open the .spr files: http://img131.imageshack.us/img131/8601/crosshairsrg2.gif The .spr file: http://rapidshare.com/files/118549907/crosshairs.spr.html Hope you can help me, V!nKu

    Well, what about.. Download the sprite for counter strike and get it to work there? I don't really play HL much, I would need it more for CS.

    Ok guys, I have found something out now.. I used a non-steam counter strike ( Ya ya don't whine, I have steam and counter strike and condition zero in there), and there was the sprite crosshairs.spr. I removed it completely from both valve/sprites/ and cstrike/sprites/ and when I went ingame, I still had the crosshair..
    LIKE WHAT THE HELL? Now I am asking u.. If the crosshairs aren't located there, then where are they? And if they aren't located there, why did I get this error:
    Error: could not load file sprites/crosshairs.spr

    Please reply,

    CS Doesn't use crosshairs.spr,
    the crosshair is coded into the program.

    Oh ok, so if I modified the .dll files the crosshair would change, but that would be a cheat.. But when I modified the crosshairs.spr, my spectator crosshair changed, but that wasn't much use. Well, thanks anyway :)
