Hey all, so ive decided to join the Freetrack group which is awesome except i do not know what to do from where im stuck now.

I have Win7 64bit/Logitech C210 camera/3point cap mounted LED and i can see my head movements in Freetrack no problems there. It's a bit sticky at some points but overall great.

Question is, i have made a Take On Helicopters profile or i think i did, but how do i load it in Freetrack and how do i get the game to see/use my Freetrack application and allow me to move my head around in game?

Do i need to install ppjoy? I am stumped here  :gene:

Take On Helicopters has native FreeTrack support. Go to 'Options' then 'Controls' then  'Controller', select 'FreeTrack' and click 'Enable', select 'TrackIR' and click 'Disable'. In FreeTrack software the Output 'FreeTrack interface' should be ticked.

Thank you so much, i actually got it working before reading your post, but did not know about the Output "Freetrack" part in the freetrack software.

I'm trying to use head tracking in Take On Helicopters, but using an android smartphone as an input; starting TrinusVR additional sofwtare I can see TrackIR appearing  in the list of available controllers; I can also associate TrackIR "commands" to Take On Helicopters "view" commands... but then  in the game nothing happens upon moving the phone!
Any experience?
Hidden setting I'm missing?
Tips?
