Doesn't seem to be working on my Acer tablet anymore, I can't swipe to scroll up or down or nothing, it doesn't respond

I've confirmed the touch regions no longer work,my guess is due to the recent update that changed touch-region-release behaviour. I should have this sorted by the weekend, thanks for the report :-)

Targetless android touch regions should be fixed in the latest release, 1.7.14. Please let me know if you still have any issues with touch on android tablets. Download at [] as usual, also updated top of this thread.

My cat discovered a (very minor) bug today. He stepped on the joystick button that was bound to /pin, while I was at the login page. This caused a lua error to pop up. According to the error message the offending line is plugins/targetless/lists/Controller.lua:414.

I just built a new computer and I'm trying to transfer my existing targetless data, but I can't seem to locate the data file.... Where is it, and/or what to I need to get all my info from one computer to another?

The plugin code is under the Vendetta folder in plugins/
The roid info and other settings are stored in system notes, inside the Vendetta folder seperatly for each of your vo usernames under settings/username/system741937notes.txt

It should be safe to just copy over the entire plugins/ and settings/ folders within the Vendetta programe folder.

Hope that helps :)

Is this updated on the vo-wiki?

The vo-wiki page points at so it is ALWAYS uptodate. However the vo-wiki description/text was out of date, and I just updated now. Thanks for the heads up idd :)

Targetless 1.7.16 released:

* add goliath/capella to capship list
* fix HUD.Reload errors (thanks Ray for pointing these out)
* other minor fixes and prep-work for cell-based lists

More soon(tm)

Targetless 1.7.17 released:

* fix for rays fix for my fix for HUD.Reload(), no uses new HUD_RELOADED event
* fix font-scaling consistency issue (min-size reduced for really large resolutions)
* include capship NAME in capship layout definition (these are now useful for player undocked capships)

If anyone has issues with the font-size changes and can't get a workable/nice solution using the /targetless -> Options -> Lists -> Font Size slider, please email me a screenshot and details on your screen-resolution and vo interface font scaling. Email to drazed at gmail.

I was person affected by the "font to small no matter is slider max to right" issue on 5 inch 1920x1080 device. Instead of pestering plugin creator, I dived in code for trivial fix:



targetless.ui.options.element.fontslider = iup.canvas{
scrollbar="HORIZONTAL", size="300x", border="YES",
xmin = 50, xmax=200, dx=10, posx=0,

Replace value of "xmax" to thing like 300 (or more, if needed). Save, start game - now you can use font slider in targetless options to change font for being as small or as big as you desire. Optimal size (just add big as possible to still have 4 digits distance fitting one line) on 1920x1080 is 136, BTW.

Hope it helps,

Minor release coming tomorrow night! Will fix capship layout (especially for queens and levis) bugs, trim bugs, and font scale bugs plus increase the range of font scaling.

Also I setup a discord for targetless testing/updates, all are welcome:

Minor release finally out:

* my-capship support (track and target your own capship with ease)
* base-font-size option (recommend leave this at default and just use scaling unless you have real trouble fitting things right with scaling))
* improved scaling/trimming logic
* ore out of range event as requested by @chocolateer
* increase shield/healthbar heights
* capship layout fixes (especially queen/levi duplicate names bug and fixed trimming to include entire calculated name string)
* bugfixes
