    @Aqual0: Go

    yes it is issue from position.pyc... The problem is mod swf's are outdated 9.0 did screwed all old crosshair's Moving them ofscreen.

    Position.pyc was written by RU mod makers comunity to fix this problem without need to edit swf's.

    However most mods with still have supports of their authors were already updated to new render method, while abandoned MathMod files are not. If u install old files of MathMod together with new files of other updated crosses Math mod part will be displayed correctly while other will be repositioned with script position.pyc...

    If U delete this script updated files from other crosshairs will work OK, but without it MathMod files will not.

    There is no solution for this unless someone update MathMod swf's to new display type and make them work without position.pyc script...

    It appears the issue comes from the file Postion.pyc

    I tried to install the mod file by file, and see when my reticle disappears.

    Without this file, the reticle in strategic view ends up in the top left corner.

    With the the file, in arcade and sniper view, the reticle dissapears, and all what's left is the server's one. And in strategic view, the reticle is where it's supposed to be.

    Another fact, if you use another reticle mod for arcade and sniper view, or melty's mod, the reticle is still there when DAR artillery sight is intalled.

    Hi,

    Got a bit of a problem...

    When I install this mod, the arty sight works fine, but the reticle on the main view disappears apart from the server reticle.

    When using tanks other than arty, the server reticle is the only one visible, all the rest is gone, both in main view and sniper mode.

    Any ideas, as I really want this mod back?

    Thanks :)
