Crosshair & deathmessages on Expert/Veteran
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Crosshairs, and deathmessages as in "Playername was Killed" showing on expert/veteran settings. I'm expecting these are bugs.

In expert and veteran difficulties crosshairs are on by default, but can be deactivated via the game options...

Crosshairs should be forced deactivated in expert mode.

I don't think so: as someone already stated, in IRL you have some sort of feeling of where your gun is pointed at, that cannot be reproduced in the game without the use of crosshairs...

as for this issue, Later on you can script and mod the kill messages out as well as the crosshairs

Crosshairs have always been DISABLED by default in Expert at least. It's ridiculous to have them allowed in Expert.

It also means that if we search for expert servers, we don't know whether they have crosshairs off.

on my PC i have some sort of feeling where the center of my screen is, and even with aiming deadzone in arma 2 i was able to shoot precise (more or less) without crosshairs

A issue as simple as this shouldn't have to be modded away. There should be no crosshairs/killmessages by default on expert.

Gliptal, but you have a feeling of where the middle og the screen is, and anyway expert and elite should be forced of, it's supposed to be harder, even harder than real life

This is a change that drives me crazy... i only play elite and the hud should be as minimalistic with stuff. I only shoot "from the hip" when im in realy close combat and dont have the time to aim proper. I usually hit at this distance but it does make you as a player aim with the sight in more situations as it should be. :)
