Other crosshair programs offer a single style or color option, and often don't allow you to reposition them. CrossOver is a small, unintrusive crosshair overlay which has plenty of configuration options to assist with aiming and vision of your crosshair. CrossOver offers a huge improvement to many games' default crosshairs for those with colorblindness or contrast issues.
Thanks to Reddit user /u/IrisFlame for the premade library of crosshairs!

Default Keyboard Shortcuts
|Toggle the settings window and lock the crosshair in place||Control-Alt-Shift-X|
|Move the crosshair a single pixel||Control-Alt-Shift-Arrows|
|Quickly hide/show the application||Control-Alt-Shift-H|
|Center the crosshair window||Control-Alt-Shift-C|

Mac: the Option key is used instead of Alt.
Linux: Some distributions do not center on double-click.
Choose from over 100 real and fictional crosshairs, or use your own by dragging an image to the window. You can change the size and opacity.
The reticle is the small dot or cross at the center of the sight. You can select the shape and the color, or this can be turned off.
Hide on ADS
Choose a mouse button to use as your ADS button. The crosshair will be hidden while this button is held down.
Start on boot
You can automatically set CrossOver to start when your system starts on your gaming PC, so you're always ready to pop heads.
By default CrossOver will automatically keep itself updated with bug fixes and improvements. You can disable this in the settings to prevent all network requests.
CrossOver will only connect to GitHub to download published releases and does not send or store any personal data. I'm a solo developer and you aren't important to me
See default keyboard shortcuts. All of the keybinds can be changed or disabled except for the bind to reset all settings. Click into the input and press your bind, or press Backspace or Delete to disable a bind.
Keep in mind that keybinds may conflict with other programs so be careful about what you choose. There's no real mechanism for preventing you from setting two conflicting keyinds within the app, so don't do that.
Duplicate crosshair windows use the same settings as the main window and do not support all of the features of the main window. Settings for duplicate crosshairs will not be saved and all duplicate windows will be closed if the main window is closed. Duplicate crosshairs cannot follow the mouse.
To reset all settings and binds to default, press Control-Alt-Shift-R

index.html contains the layout and

You will need node.js v14.x.x installed. If you have
nvm installed, run
nvm install && nvm use to switch to the correct node version.
$ yarn && yarn start
Build steps optimized for Mac, see electron.builder for help customizing builds.
wine and mono must be installed for Windows builds (macOS) multipass must be installed for Snap builds (macOS)
$ yarn build
$ yarn release
Then edit the automatically created GitHub Releases draft and publish.
Currently CrossOver only works with windowed applications, use
Windowed Fullscreen mode if your game or application supports it. Windows -
Fullscreen for MacOS may have better results.
If you absolutely need to use
Fullscreen mode, or your game is not supported by crossover, there is a workaround using AutoHotKey.
Doesn't work with some games #47, and causes FPS issues in other cases
Install AutoHotKey and run this script with it (save it as
script.ahk and double-click it):
Home::Winset, Alwaysontop, , CrossOver
Once in-game, pressing space should put the crosshair over the screen, even in fullscreen mode.
Graphical issues on Linux
Check your desktop environment. CrossOver may not work on KDE, try GNOME if you experience issues.
You can run CrossOver from the command line to see debug output. Open a terminal and navigate to the CrossOver app, run
./CrossOver to see output:
╭─ lacymorrow in /Applications/CrossOver.app/Contents/MacOS using ╰─○ $ ./CrossOver --debug 09:45:16.023 › CrossOver 2.7.4 Development 09:45:16.030 › Setting: Enable GPU 09:45:16.487 › App ready
Start CrossOver in debug mode, with Chrome DevTools open.
Reset all app preferences to default, in case you get into a broken state.
Print the app version to
stdout (Good for CI).
An extra big thanks to the crosshair providers, as this wouldn't be possible without them:
