TrackIR work around - maybe???
« on: June 19, 2013, 05:12:16 pm »

Hello,

TrackIR can/may work in app with the TrackIR->TIRMouse.exe.

BUT:

"direct input for mouse control" needs to be active.


http://forum.naturalpoint.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=36931


From TrackIR help:

4.3.2 Mouse Emulation
Mouse emulation mode is used when there is no direct TrackIR support for the game you would like to play. You can attempt to configure the game as long as it has a mouse look option. For more details and information on mouse emulation please see section 5.6 in the manual.


Can this lead to a solution? to get TrackIR and Outerra together?

Regards,

Darren

Alternatively:

Hi Darren,

We would be totally happy to support them with our SDK.  I'll be in touch with them shortly.

Comments/Questions :

I am writing to make a request, or plea (almost bordering on begging). 

Please support Outerra, and allow them use of the TrackIR license etc.

Outerra already supports Oculus Rift, who are soon to be a threat to TrackIR.

I am only a customer of both TrackIR and Outerra, who would love to see this marriage between the two.

See for yourself.

We must sign a NDA, but it seems to be modified and softened from what I saw earlier.

I hope I can soon stand on a mountain and look around (with my TrackIR), scanning the horizon. Or jet through the mountainous gullies, with quick glances to the left, to the right.

 :)


Can you tell me what format you need the graphical objects to be? What code is the application made with?


ps:

Is great so far, that I can use my Hotas Cougas, and Saitex peddals.....at same time!

But I would really love a "Cave man simulator".

Freetrack (or facetracknoir) will be supported as well, likely earlier than this. I've recently got my IR cap finished too.

But would be nice if you could use the roll axes from the Rift and the lean axes from TrackIR.

Rx,y,z = Rift
Tx,y,z = TrackIR

If it could help TrackIR owners:

One guy found a solution in order to make trackir working when there is no direct input datas.
I'm not an expert but it should be a free solution (open source).
I tested it under anteworld and it's working perfectly for left/right moves.
This is adding a lot of immersion inside cockpits :)


Here is the original post where you will find the detail: http://forum.naturalpoint.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=55803#Post55803

As resume:

- download profile (*.py file) that come from the above post
- download/install freepie (google it)
- open trackir, select profile "one"
- open freepie, go to settings, plugins, trackir (i let unticked "enable loggin")
- in freepie go to file, open and select the *.py file
- run the script by selecting "script", "run script"

Now if you press pageup key you should see the mouse following your head movements.
After that you can start anteworld and enjoy immersion after having adapted the sensibility according your preferences  ;)
