Free Track head tracking, can it work with R3E?

    Hi,

    I wanted to give a head tracking a try so I`ve done a point model (IR leds) and set up Freetrack, to give a nice and smooth headtracking.

    Then I thought if it emulates track IR it`ll just work if I start the game, but it doesn`t...

    I also tried it with Assetto Corsa, but also no luck unfortunately.

    Does any of you had success, setting this up in R3E?

    Can't help you with R3E, but what I do know is that you'll need to run the 32-bit version of AC to get FreeTrack running. OpenTrack runs with the 64-bit version of AC too.

    Thank you guys, I installed opentrack and it works with no issues for both. I guess freetrack would require some update since 2008 :)

    Case closed.

    I'm using EdTracker and opentrack. I'ts a small UK company making head tracking devices using a arduino board and magnetometer module. Works great, I've bought a DIY kit, soldered it together in 15min. and just taped it to my headset. No lag at all, very precise i can recomend it to anybody. The edtracker comes with it's own software and shows up in your system as a joystick, then just fire up opentrack, tell it to use this joystick axes and away you go.
