So I`m really good at scripting. Made my own Commandmenu, Gorgemenu etc.
But i really want to know if theres a way to change crosshairs just with pushing a key ingame.
I would like to know this cause Public im playing with normal crosshairs but when im playing a pcw i would like to change to fanas crosshairs cause i aim better with them.
I dont want to change the directories every war and public, just want to push a key so can somebody Help me?

    <DOOManiac> my main thing about clans is they never seem to actually have fun when playing
    <DOOManiac> even if they're winning they are so caught up in the seriousness of the situation they don't have fun. its like work. where's the fun in that?

    scripting no, programming yes.

    Just make a program in C++ that opens and edits the corresponding weapon text file. The only tricky part is getting the program to run without having to alt+tab.

    No use even if you change the weapon text files mid-game. The files are not loaded again until you restart NS.

    You can't swap the sprite files either, because the engine will detect the change, and crash.

    The weapon text files are loaded when the level loads. You don't have to restart NS; you merely have to wait for a map change, retry, or connect to a different server.
    some obscure NS gameplay data (added back to signature since people still ask for it from time to time)

    I stand corrected, please proceed with the programming.

    edit: Did you put a lot of effort into making the smilie so... speckly?

    If I get any free time, I can write the C program for you...

    It might be possible to, inside the program, tell it to look for a key, and it will look through NS, but I'm not sure... And it would have to be a little-used key, like one of the function keys or scroll lock maybe. But it would be different for eveyone so we would have to recompile, etc. I don't even think I have a free key, ALL of my keyboard is used.

    yea, you would have to have the program intercept key strokes before they go to NS, which would require a lot of programming and perhaps actual changes to the NS code itself :S

    Would it be possible to run the program, by using the shortcut key function that's built into Windows?

    Probably not. Elsewise, you'd expect to encounter other Windows key-related functions as well (such as the StickyKeys popup for pressing Shift too much, if you haven't disabled that already).

    That's exactly what I was thinking. And, inside C programs for windows, you have to declare the windows hotkeys. If you declared an extra one and made it call a function, it might work. Not too sure though.

    On a side note, I probably won't have the time to do this until spring break.
