Since the large update Valve made to Counter-Strike Source about 6 months ago, I stopped playing for a bit. Now that I've come back, I've noticed something peculiar. I used to be able to change the size of my cross-hair with the command

cl_crosshairscale 20000

This would scale it down to as small as possible - the way I liked it. When I run that command now, the scale doesn't change. Is it still possible to change the scale? If so, how?

Commands for setting crosshair properties have changed recently.

Check this sticky thread for details.

As for your specific issue, setting cl_legacy_crosshair_scale 1 will fix it.
