    PC scum. Go back to your hacks! :D

    Though that is pretty cool, but Idk if it would be worth it to buy the game on PC, and I would also have to get a PC.

    And it was your "1337" post.
  • Needs more purple!

    Pretty cool though mate, thanks for sharing.
  • Pretty cool, but common it isnt really challenging pointing with a mouse.

    It is not difficult to point with the mouse... but the design of the heavy "reticle" is so terrible that it is not conducive to accurate and precise fire. Anything out of point blank range, you need to aim for the torso and then walk your shots up while also compensating for the changes in movement of the target when using the default reticle... this is much slower than if you had a dot point of reference for center of fire. There is a reason there hasn't been a circle reticle without a dot that i'm aware of since like ww2, and even then it was on a 20mm AA gun. All modern reticles I have encountered either have a dot, a cross, a chevron, a post, etc for pinpoint shots... something DICE neglected to put in this game for some reason.

    Bottom line is, at anything outside of point blank range, having a circle dot or other center of fire capable crosshair will improve your speed, accuracy, and precision.

    Pro tip: Blu-tac dot in centre of screen, go.

    Heavy weapons aren’t supposed to be used at long range that’s why.

    I disagree... the FWMB-10 is a medium to long range weapon... secondly there are other short range blasters which have much better reticles... the CR-2 comes to mind.

    I use the one built into my monitor. Well I did once and never again. Found lots of guns don't actually shoot centered so it wasn't the most helpful.
  • Good to know about this possibility. I have also reticle on my gaming monitor, I rarely use it, unless I use HUD:less mode sometimes.
  • I wish I could just have a green dot on everything like Overwatch. Saber users have the best reticle.

    IB4L.

    Why would it be locked? This is common functionality which is built into most modern gaming monitors already... my Asus Rog Swift actually has 4 different reticles built into it which can be activated by clicking a button on the side of the monitor. This program allows similar functionality for those who do not have a modern gaming monitor.

    Hmm that is weird... my monitor allows me to move the reticle around so it matches whatever the game settings are.

    You can, just put a green dot image in the file instead of the red circle dot or whatever.

    Doesnt work

    I don't know what to tell you as stating "doesn't work" doesn't really tell me anything regarding what the problem is. Is it not starting at all? Are you getting an error message? Did you install the .net framework 3.5?

    Great guide and video. Before i use it though, does this count as a mod? Because i read somewhere that EA said that mods were only ok if they don't affect your game play or something like that. I'm just worried about risking my account.

    You are not modifying the game files in any way... so no, I don't think it can be classified as a mod. It is an overlay which is projected on your screen, and as I and others have pointed out, many gaming monitors have this functionality already built into them. I have used this program to create reticles for 10 years in games with anti cheat systems such as Punkbuster, VAC, Blizzards Warden, FairFight etc... and I have never been banned or warned for using it.

    Hahaha... the first video game I remember playing was on a Vectrex... and my first computer games on my own computer were Silent Service, Red Baron, Winter Games, and Battle Chess...
