How do you show accuracy in this, like x-piratez does?

So, I'm super late to the party. (I stuck with stable OpenXcom for a while way back; found Nightlies had better features and switch over a couple years ago; just now realized OCXE is a thing.) So forgive me if the following question is already answered elsewhere:

I JUST got OXCE to try out (so I'm on the newest version; update checker agrees) and noticed that interception is not predictive like in the Nightlies. I checked for the setting and realize it's completely gone. (Re-checked in Nightlies to make sure I was looking in the correct spot.) Was support for predictive interception trajectories dropped?

Yes, the feature is very buggy... and I don't like bugs, so I removed it completely.

Ah. I think I know what you mean. (I've seen the feature do some odd or questionable things before. Though it worked for me more often than not.)

Any plans to re-implement it in a non-buggy way, or is it just one of those things that would be hard to get right given the circumstances or is more involved than a player would think? (I know it can be an time-consuming art to make something actually stupidly complex under the hood look seamless and effortless to a user. That, and users tend not to think about the effort put into programming.)

SupSuper has done at least a dozen of fixes in the nightlies... but with little to zero improvement IMO.
I think the feature is beyond repair.

Getting this error (see attachment). I think it's due to the fact that negative indexes for bigobs are now invalid.
I can't seem to find the thread/post (by yankes iirc) which explained the fix.
For example the spitter in question uses:
bigSprite: -2
What index should I use to get the same graphics? I'll run a find/replace and fix all of them
.

edit: found it

Just copy the graphics into your mod and use a normal positive index like for any other bigobs you've added before.

Thanks. I wasn't using those indexes (my mod starts from 99 onward) so I simply used them:
bigSprite: -2 ---> bigSprite: 60

And does it work?
I'm pretty sure it doesn't (unless you defined bigsprite 60 in your mod too).
