Yeah I'm pretty sure Flat would gain the most out of the head tracking thing hey. That's awesome you got it powered with the USB Scorp

Nice one Scorp. Can if you're keen I've still gone a few spare parts that I could put together and mail to you? The only thing missing is a power source (battery pack or USB).

And Scorp, Steam is having a sale on premium accounts/starter packs for War Thunder if you reckon you're going to get into it. I bought the ACE pack on their last sale for $28 US marked down from $40 US.

I think I know what the Freetrack problem is with ARMA

Apparently there is a output box you need to change from trackIR to Freetrack in the output tab of the Freetrack software.

Also apparently the frame rate of your webcam can effect the motion of the tracking.. Makes sense.. I've got a shit hot logitec one here Im going to take home & try.

I found the instructions to get Freetrack to work in Arma 2 from this thread:

Here are his instructions: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?90969-The-(un)Official-Freetrack-Users-Q-amp-A-Thread

Quote
1. *Download and install latest beta - make sure your launcher is set to launch the beta .exe file, with the beta folder as the first modfolder in line - a standard beta setup, in other words...
2. *Go to Freetrack install folder - look for FreeTrackClient.dll - it's part of Freetrack - it WILL be there... if it isn't, try installing the latest freetrack version and make sure you have "view hidden files" enabled in windows
3. *Copy FreeTrackClient.dll file to the arma2/beta folder
(I was just guessing that the requisite code is in the .exe, it'll be expecting it's associated .dll in the same directory)
Run Freetrack - go to the "Output" tab - make sure "FreeTrack Interface" is ticked, and "TrackIR Interface" is not - get Freetrack tracking and ready to go...
4. *Launch Arma2 - with beta
"Go to Options/Controls/Controller - make sure "missing string STR_Freetrack" (slight glitch there??) is visible and enabled...
5. *Go to editor, place a player unit and hit "preview"


My $20 webcam is set at 30fps. Let me know about your new awesome webcam. Remember to remove the IR filter and apply a light blocking filter (floppy disk) on the webcam and turn the anti-flickering off and the exposure all the way down to get the best results.

I attached a picture bro of what you need to tick. It says to tick freetrack interface and untick trackir interface. I left mine on so I could play War thunder.
