Crosshair In Any Game
This is basic overlay software for streaming and recording. We're just using the image overlay feature to use any crosshair we want. The difference with this than other methods is you can play in fullscreen. Theres also a timer overlay you can bind to a key and set to 30s, as well as a stopwatch and clock.
It will show on OBS screen capture and MAYBE game capture by the way.
- It freaks out with too many overlays. i.e. fraps, steam fps, rivatuner.
- You must have it running before you launch the game.
- Rarely it'll crash or not show, unfortunately the only way to fix it is to restart or logoff/logon.
Downloadable Crosshairs to get started.
no border / border
Check the Image Overlay box then select Plugin Settings
Click on the image path area and select your crosshair image png and click ok
I've made some png's, they are at the top of the page, right click to download
Launch the game and get to where you can see your crosshair, when ready select Preview Overlays
Click on Render On Screen icon to enable it(make it green)
Grab and drag the image overlay box into the center position, alt tab back to the game to see where it is. Adjust accordingly, its a little tricky. Alternately you can make a full size blank png at the resolution you play at with the crosshair perfectly centered and use that. Just stretch the Image Overlay box to fit the entire Overlay Preview window.
Once you have that situated close it. Then you need to remove / set the hotkeys so you dont accidentally record massive files like I did. F12 is the default record key which is also my steam screenshot key.
Unbind all the hotkeys by clicking on them and hitting escape. Optionally you can bind a key to toggle the crosshair on/off with the first option.
Alternately if you do not want to center the crosshair by hand or are having trouble, you can make a big .png in the resolution you play at ingame and make that your crosshair image, just center the crosshair in the middle of that png. When applying, set the range of the overlay to be the entire grid.
