From Quake Wiki


Default value: "0"
Saved to config.cfg: yes* (see below)

When this is enabled (type "crosshair 1"), the engine will draw a plus sign with the Quake font in the centre of the screen.

Some new engines (TomazQuake for example) support different crosshairs drawn from TGA images, in which case you will be able to change the look of the crosshair by setting it to 2, or 3, etc.

*(FIXME) I seem to recall older versions not saving crosshair to config? Can anyone verify this? (I'm sure cheapalert/leileilol would know exactly)
