Hey guys kinda new here.. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for some nice write-ups on scouts and details about their role? I read the one on this site already.. Mainly I would like to know how to download or disign custom crosshair reticles for the game.. This isn't an engine I am familar with so I need some help as to where to find the sniper scope image so I can change it. Also any tips on how to get a good moving shot would be great.. I practice but I do not get better.. Also I learned the trick with holding down fire to see where your shot landed and stay zoomed in.. How do you get it to stay zoomed in before you fire your next shot? That's all =) Hope to se eyou guys lurking in the shadows.. Point me to any files/urls that would help the scout out.. I really want to do my own sniper recticle though.

thanks, Zogal

hey, nice to see a snper onthese forums! (I hardly check:)) ok, there's princess frost's sniping guide, which is very helpful, I'll put a link at the end of this post, I'm not sure if thats the one oyu read. As for killing a moving target, the bulllet takes a little time to get to where yuo want it to go, so you have to 'lead' your target with the sniper rifle. Its pretty tricky, but if you practice, you'll get used to it (I haven't). Now, I have no idea that you could change the sniper scope, but i dont hang around the modding forums. NVM about that sniping guide, i didn't realize that they had it posted good luck with sniping Zogal!

oh, i almost forgot, you cant stay zoomed in for more thatn one shot. you HAVE to zoom out, dunno why, just do.:mad:

Cool thanks.. I really want to do my own crosshair though, I am a graphic artist so I want to do one with range markings and such.. Anyone know where the overlay file for the sniper rifle scope is hidden at and if I modify it will it inpure my client?
