I've been running freetrack for around 5 years. Recently I made a new setup using a Logitech C170 modified for IR only operation.
I got it working well, however every time I start the tracking (even by just pressing stop then start again), the tracking screen goes into white out and I have to adjust camera settings again..
I have to increment either my gamma up, or my brightness down by a few notches. This brings it back to the same level of brightness before (mostly black with 3 very big visible white dots)
I checked with the native windows camera app and the Logitech webcam software, and neither of them suffer from this problem. I have checked in between stopping and starting freetrack's tracking and and the camera softwares show me a dark grey screen with very 3 visible green dots with no changes in the levels (it's the same color grey and green with same level of contrast).
I also noticed that whenever I press the start tracking button, the camera screen will show me normal operation (bright dots on black background) for about half a second before going into white out .
I can still use it at the moment, but I'm afraid I might run out slider soon
My system is windows 8.1, with Freetrack running simconnect for FSX
