[GUIDE] How to remove black box from sniper scoped crosshair.

Post by SC]-[WARTZ_{HoF} » Sat Oct 07, 2017 4:36 pm

Some of you may experience this obscure black box in your sniper scoped crosshair. I'm gonna explain how to fix this simple problem.

It will look something similar to this.

The reason for this happening is part code which is located in the "sniper rifle's weapon class .uc"
in the "simulated function PostRender( canvas Canvas )" block here which you have no control over.

Code: Select all

		if ( Level.bHighDetailMode )
			Canvas.Style = ERenderStyle.STY_Translucent; // The way it should be on your screen and not block your view.
		else
			Canvas.Style = ERenderStyle.STY_Normal; // How the crosshair looks with a black box obscuring your view. Ugh.
The other part is a setting in your "UnrealTournament.ini" which you'll need to adjust manually. This adjustment will prevent the black box.
You'll need to open your "UnrealTournament.ini" which is located in your C:\UnrealTournament\System directory. Then find the settings for your video renderer.

Should look something like these examples here.

Most common renderer.
[D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice] if you use Direct3D

Other renders.
[OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice] if you use OpenGL
[D3D8Drv.D3D8RenderDevice] if you use Direct3D8
[D3D9Drv.D3D9RenderDevice] if you use Direct3D9
[D3D10Drv.D3D10RenderDevice] if you use Direct3D10

You'll find a setting called "HighDetailActors" and this needs to be set to =TRUE. Once you have change that setting to "TRUE" save and close your UnrealTournament.INI file and your reticle problem should be fixed.

random side note, I hadn't found this thread yet and fixed the issue myself. This OpenGL driver found here http://www.cwdohnal.com/utglr/ seems to eliminate the issue as well, at least on WINE in Linux. I have not tested the D3D driver found there

This is not what render it's but just how to set it

with all render ...here opengl for exemple

[OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice]
HighDetailActors=True
