Crosshair X is EAC compliant because it runs completely independently of any game process. The fullscreen overlay is achieved by using the Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10 which is a trusted overlay platform built by Microsoft. This allows Crosshair X to run completely independently of any game and process, making it secure and anti-cheat compliant.
HudSight draws a crosshair overlay right over a game frame and it doesn't matter what video mode is used in a game. That is why you can switch your game to fullscreen and get minimal input lag. Finally!
HudSight is not a cheat, it doesn't change games files or game play, it just draws an overlay (like Steam or Origin services or some other tools). But please make sure that the Terms of Service of a game you play do not deny such enhancement. For example, PunkBuster anti-cheat service gave manual bans for the screenshots of custom crosshairs in old Battlefield 2 and 2142 games.
While it's not exactly a secret, it's likely that some of you don't know that some gaming monitors, particularly mid-to-high range models like the Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q-X (opens in new tab) can come with a crosshair overlay built into the settings that can be activated on any game, providing a tactical advantage against opponents in titles who may not have their own hardware that supports such a feature.
The overlay will usually place a crosshair in the dead center of your display, so there are a few caveats. If you like to play games in windowed mode (a standard practice for people using ultrawide displays) then you can't adjust where the monitor crosshair sits on your screen, and some games actually set the target location of your shots a little off-center to give players more screen space, so you'll find the overlay isn't actually targeting your opponent.
Some Asus models with GamePlus actually give you a selection of different crosshair overlays to choose from. Make sure you check the user manual of your monitor to check if your model comes with this feature, and if so how to enable it. Typically, you can find the feature in your monitor settings, but the name and location will vary across different brands.
The thing is, a crosshair or any kind of visual assistance is a fantastic accessibility feature, and not every game needs to be viewed with the scrutiny of tournament competitions. People have also been manually creating their own crosshairs for years, so unless you also get mad at the existence of dry erase markers, tape and stickers then this is just a reality of shooting titles. I fondly remember using painter's tape when playing the original Gears of War because my aim was terrible and I just wanted to have fun.
Outside of hardware, there are also applications you can download that will place a crosshair into any game such as HudSight (opens in new tab). It's up to you if you choose to use this aid or not, but it exists for a reason. This isn't any kind of aimbot tech, and players still need to manually aim at their targets, so a visual aid to help new gamers learn the ropes or people with visual impairments to play previously inaccessible games shouldn't be sniffed at.
Monitor crosshairs are hardly a new feature by any stretch, but every few weeks a surprised gamer will discover this 'hack' and run to tell social media. This is your sign to check if your monitor model has a built-in crosshair and go and enjoy your favorite games without sticking anything onto your display.
So, long story short, my vision is going a bit S#&$, even with glasses, and the default Warframe crosshair tends to disappear among all the chaos going on on screen. Why DE decided to go with a tiny white dot and give us no customization options is baffling, but that's a discussion for another time. Anyway, I found a program ( ) that will let me overlay a graphic on my screen, but I've read all kinds of horror stories about people getting banned for running any kind of 3rd party program, even one as harmless () as an overlay. 153554b96e
