Official Freetrack is no longer updated. Opentrack contains a maintained version of Freetrack and official TrackIR. This Freetrack module recently got a really good review. You can also use a smartphone yes, on your headset, to make Mobile Mouse app act as head tracking. Through Opentrack, War Thunder will think it's a hatstick/virtual joystick.

yep it's easier to use (autoconnect etc.) but it uses a lot more ressources.

Hey man, is freetrack working still fine? I am making my own head tracking system, but still wondering should i start using opentrack or freetrack. Can you use the launcher with 64-bit or do you have to use 32-bit version with freetrack? If yes, does the 32-bit version of War Thunder run somehow worse than 64-bit?

i still use freetrack, sometimes i get some dll errors with directx9 but still works. using it with the 64bit war thunder version.

 

i tried opentrack some time ago, worked also but i stayed with freetrack coz it works good and i´ve setup all the axis and stuff.

Thanks for reply! I think i go with freetrack then as it seems to be the best one.

if anyone is on a struggle to find the ps3eye driver im willing to share a solution via pm

 

(because its pretty inadequate to pay for something you cant even use if customized as a Infraredtrackingdevice and already is in use as a earlier free version from thousands, its like paying taxes for usage of sunlight, kapitalism will be the death to humanity)

A review of the stuff I use after some 15-20 hours trying it out.

 

I bought my Freetrack clip in Poland.  There are Polish players here, so here's a link: http://allegro.pl/freetrack-cap-120-z-ps3-eye-alternatywa-trackir-i5930577060.html

 

First I checked if the price was good, and it was.  If you buy all the components new, plus shipping, you come up with roughly the same price as what you pay for it already made.  Basically, dirt cheap.  6 month money-back guarantee, no questions asked, as long as you do not modify the device.  From what I gathered from e-mail exchange with the maker, I believe he is serious enough about it to pay back if the device is returned undamaged.  Overall, hard to resist.  You can try it out for the cost of shipping both ways.

 

It comes with:

1.  Modified PS3 camera.

3.  PS3 camera monitor mount.

3.  The clip itself.

4.  Battery.

5.  All the software required to run it (including PS3 Eye drivers).

6.  Instructions in Polish.

 

Installation.

Easy.  I followed brief but sufficient instructions and it just worked.  

 

Configuration.

More or less straightforward.  The defaults in the software (FacetrackNoIR) are useless, but the software itself is not particularly complex, so I got the hang of it quickly. Finetuning will probably take me a lifetime, but from what I read that's expected.  I would say no issues here, apart from this whole thing being more complicated than I expected.  At least the software is not overcomplicated, which I like.

 

Build quality.

It's functional, but that's it.  Nothing fancy.  It looks like you built it yourself.

 

Issues.

The only real Issue I had with it was short battery life.  It drains 20 mA of current, which gives about 10-20 hours of decent work on common 9V battery.  From what I gathered, that's got to be quite common.  Decent IR LEDs require that much current, so it is what it is.  In the description on the auction site it's written "minimum 80 hours", which is bollocks.  Maximum 80 hours is possible on some fancy batteries, which you wouldn't buy anyway, because they are not cost effective.

 

Support.

Good, I would say.  I was disappointed with battery life, so I decided to try and adapt some power supply to get rid of this problem.  I mailed the maker, and he responded with good info right away.  He informed me of course, that I violate the guarantee, which is fair (I could have ruined the whole thing quite easily), but provided all the required info in easy to understand language.  I mean, he tried to help.  Very quick reply too. 

 

Mods.

Like I wrote, I adapted a power supply.  The whole thing is trivial to make.  You just buy or simply find a suitable power supply, open up an old battery to get out the connector out of it, solder it all together and it runs with no issues. 

 

Overall, I'm quite happy with it.  To be honest, considering the price I paid, I expected less.

in my early days in FRB i used face tracking with facetrackNoir. It really worked well and is a good start into head tracking. much better than viewing around with coolie hat or mouse.

 

i did a video using it

still TrackIR or freetrack accuracy and smoothness cant be achieved. currently i use a selfmade 6DOF clip and a modded ps3 eye cam. hardware costs < 20-30€, thats rather cheap compared with prebuilt TrackIR systems. as software i use Freetrack.

I use facetrack No Ir software with their plugins and use the point tracker option.
I made a 3 point IR led clip attached to my head set and use 12v Led adapter power supply with a 233ohm resistance. and mine is parallel circuit

 

works super fine for me can do everything you do with Track IR.

if anyone need suggestion I can tell you how to make one. not much expensive but alot of work to do that's for sure

The one I made uses an old USB cord that I run through some resisters to get the right voltage for the LEDs, it eliminates the need for a battery all of the time.  I have been using it now for probably 4 years, had to replace 2 LEDs so far from burnout or leads breaking (I have two kids that aren't exactly gentle).
