This will create a laser pointer. It has wall detection (so the laser stops at walls) and an option for player detection (lags if several players). To enable it set ALLOW_TO_CHECK_PLAYER_POINTER_COLLISION to true.

Changes:
• use F4 to activate/deactivate the pointer
• "laser end" suggested by KingRhody90
• slightly faster
• Fixed the lag (it will only lag with man players using a laser)
• the pointers no longer stop at obstacles
• now it can optionally stop at players

important
read the readme for installation instructions.

My Judgement
Negatives
-> You didn't smoothen the laser
-> Make the laser transparent
-> Make a laser end so the victim would fairly know he's aimed(a laser end is an end of a laser so if everytime the laser aims on a wall. the wall enlightens with color red. so yeah i expect laser ends)
-> You have to implement something to turn it on/off

This works effectively on aim_maps. or if you're going to practice. so yeah good luck improving. I am expecting better enhancements

Code:

function ConvertCoord(x)
     return (x-(x%32)+32)/32;
end


How about this

Code:
1
2
3
function ConvertCoord(x)
     return math.floor(x/32)
end

I had the idea of using a single image and just rescaling it to fit. But I also thought that it would still be iterating through the loops so I did not think it would gain speed that way. Though I have added code to prevent it from redrawing and reiterating if the player has not moved or rotated.

sweet code
haven't tried it out but the code looks good.

I was bored once, so I created a similar thing, except instead of a pointer I drew lines to all my enemies, including health (using color) and distance (transparency). Even on my crappy computer I had no lag whatsoever, not even when using the "always" hook.

The lag is caused by creating, coloring and removing a lot of images. In my script, I created one image of 40 × 1 px (I think) for each enemy, and continuously set it's size, color, alpha and pos. (size until enemy that is). Only when the enemy (or I) died, the image was removed.

If you want I can PM you the code (though it's a lot longer than yours).

The idea and the code are really good, only the efficiency could be better
