@javelin10 I’ve already got that set, like what white_fang says I’m looking for being able to move around inside the cockpit more.
@white_fang Thanks, I’ll take a look at the pit files. I’m not currently playing any MP so won’t be an issue at the moment.
I do use zoom with the scroll wheel but find it easier to just lean to see things (don’t have a spare axis to bind it to unfortunately). It’s when I’m looking at the side panels that I notice it the most, like I can’t seem to lean enough to see the left column of CAUTION lights on the left panel?
<blockquote>@jstnj yeah for DCS and MSFS it does work pretty well but for titles like BMS your only option is FacetrackNoIR with the plug-in. It’s unfortunate. So do you use it with BMS at all?<br /><br /></blockquote><p>No. I don’t use it in BMS, but I want to. I will not install FacetrackNoIR though, because I see many stories of it causing extreme headaches and driver issues for every single other native EyeTracker game. It’s frustrating but until I can use at least Tobii GameHub to make a BMS profile I can’t see myself in BMS very much. <br /><br /></p>
<p>Could it work with OpenTrack ? If so, the motions/movements could be translated to axis for looking around seamlessly like with Opentrack and eg. Delanclip. But no camera required, so that would be very neat</p>
<p>You should set a ‘pause’ button for TrackIR inside the TrackIR software. This way, you can stop TrackIR when you want, and use the mouse to pan around the (#3) pan view cockpit mode. When you want to use your head, you can ‘un-pause’ TrackIR:<br /><br /><img class=“ql-image” src=“https://i.imgur.com/QDskYzw.png” /><br /></p>
Thanks all, sorted with a re-install of CL-eye and opentrack, found that opentrack needed me to select PS3 eye open driver which i have never used in the past, perhaps i DLd without knowing and there was a conflict, set up a new .ini file just in case now working, just need to tweak pitch`.
Finally I bought it!
It works great with my laptop’s webcam and shows 29fps even in a darkened room! What’s more, it allows the vJoy sliders to be controlled simultaneously with the TrackIR, defining any segment of any of the 6 tracking axes as an “overlay” for the vJoy, which is very interesting as it gives me the ability to dynamically change the FOV when I reach the maximum allowed travel distance along Z . I can still move my head forward / backward inside the cockpit, and when I get to “full stop”, it starts to zoom in! A very cool feature when working with an MFD and when landing!
Just a heads-up: Several users of Opentrack have experienced stuttering recently. It seems to be related to the PS3Eye camera which may have been affected by a Windows update. The problem is that the fps of the camera fluctuates wildly between eg. 2 and 75 fps which leads to jumps in view position and stuttering.
The solution that worked for me and others has been to reinstall the PS3Eye drivers. In my case the drivers were exactly identical to the ones already installed but the process of reinstalling must have made a difference. The fps of the camera is far more steady now.
Just a quick post to say SmoothTrack (in combination with OpenTrack) works quite well in Falcon BMS. The curves (in OpenTrack) might need a bit of tweaking but that shouldn’t be too difficult. The 10 euros (I’m using the Android version on Samsung Galaxy S10) are well worth it!
