So if you're like me and enjoy flying but are too poor to afford a TrackIR in order to really get the most out of your flying experience, download this.

http://facetracknoir.sour ... ceforge.net/

Basically, it's a TrackIR thing but it doesn't require any extra hardware apart from a webcam. Personally, I use a PS3 Eye, which has a good framerate and is HD quality, so it gives a good quality latency.

You'd need to play around with the settings for a bit in order to get your 'curves' right (ooh matron) but once you've got that set, it works really well!

Thought you'd like to know!

You need the CL-Eye-Driver (https://codelaboratories. ... oducts/eye/driver/). You have to pay for it these days but it used to be free. Have a Google round and see if you can find an old version of the driver, failing that, drop me a private message and I can send you the older free version.

FacetrackNoIR is good but I think OpenTrack has superseded it now (https://github.com/opentr ... ack/opentrack). OpenTrack a bit more UI unfriendly but it can do FaceTracking and a whole lot more. Particularly important is that they have more filter options available in OpenTrack which makes it less jittery.

I found FaceTracking a little bit too CPU hungry, though I certainly preferred the convinience. You may wish to try using FaceTrackNoIR/OpenTrack with just the TrackClip (https://www.naturalpoint. ... TrackClip-PRO.html). A lot cheaper than the whole TrackIR and whilst I have never used TrackIR, I hear just as good when used with the PS3Eye. Alternatively, you can make your own TrackClip! (http://www.free-track.net ... php?showtopic=1856).

Hope this helps!

Great recommendation Roberts. Bought a PlayStation Eye off of Amazon for a couple quid on Wednesday and got it today, takes a good hour to get the software configured but having head tracking is an absolute godsend!

never used the product myself, but it offers absolutely no benefit beyond that of DIY tracking clips/caps other than the tiny bit of effort required to put them together, and as such is an absolute bloody rip off.
In fact, as I made my own, the mounting is built with my headset in mind, so is far far more sturdy than what that one looks like, as it must fit as many headset designs as possible.

Just my highly opinionated 2 cents. (it aint been a great few days)

The camera monitor clip is a good thing though!
