Disabled targetting guide

Somehow, in my game, the guide that appears to show the line of fire when targeting has become disabled. I can't find a way to enable it via the commands. What did I hit by accident, and how do I re-enable it?

Hmm, never mind; it looks like shimmering monsters messes with the targeting guide. Not sure if it's my system, or a client bug. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes. On 4.0.3 at least. But only on SDL mode. With -mgcu it works just fine. Since I mostly play with the latter (I really can't stand the SDL fonts), this hasn't affected me much. But I have noticed it a few times on my laptop where I do play with SDL because of screen limitations.

I honestly wasn't aware this could be due to color shimmering. Good catch! Once you can be sure of that, it may be worth a bug report (if there isn't one around yet).

I've seen the same bug, playing the OSX port. It's definitely the color shimmer; the targeting line actually is drawn, but then disappears when the screen refreshes to change the monster color. One workaround is to move your aimpoint rapidly back and forth so that the targeting line is itself refreshed. Or just turn off shimmer
