I dont get Freetrack to work with the Microsoft Flight Simulator X Stram Edition. Does the FSX Steam Edition Support Freetrack anyway?  :snif:

Please Help, i cant play it without Headtracking. :\

PS: Sorry for my bad Englich, i'm from Germany.

Freetrack uses Simconnect to send position data to FSX. FSX doesn't know or care where the information originates from, it just knows it's coming in via Simconnect.
It sounds more like Simconnect is not functioning with your Steam edition.

facetracknoir is just something like freetrack if you use it with  the pointtracker plug-in and ir-leds.If you try facetracknoi you must select to use it with the pointracker plug-in, not with the one he mentions in his video. :D

So how do I know if SimConnect is working or even installed properly when I have a Steam version, please?

I've finally made it work with FSX by installing 'SimConnect'
from
'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\SDK\Core Utilities Kit\SimConnect SDK\LegacyInterfaces\FSX-RTM'.

(Having Steam FSX installed previously, of course.)

:D
