Do you have an ArmA profile for FreeTrack V2.2 that you can upload?

Then we can meet on the battlefield... ;)

IMHO i would set the profile up myself. It's not so difficult and you most likely do it in few minutes.
My first version was up under 3 minutes, after that few tweaks to sensitivity  and deadzone ... and off u go.

What i have found out is that cap dimensions and directions of LED's are very important when you are looking for a good tracking, so spend time on it.

Thanks for the reply.

I'll have a go once I've built the LED point tracker.

I was hoping to get a profile that works and then edit to my taste rather than start from scratch.

Hopefully it won't be too painful.   :rolleyes:

EDIT:  Yes, its quite easy to set up. (lots of tweaking)

I'd spend some time trying to set it, but no good, find it very unstable.

If someone could share one ARMA 2 profile (v2.2) it will be great.

I am trying to understand why is it so dificult to find shared profiles on the forum.

Hi guys....

The Doc is right...

Theres so few profiles because everyones implementations of Freetrack are so different - it's not out of the box like a Track IR - everyone has same cam, same clip, same software....
All we have in common is the  < highly configurable, thank god> software...

I only play Arma, so I've never bothered having a seperate profile for it - Default is Arma... (though recently as I've changed from Arma to Arma2 I've noticed it's NOT the same - and I'm currently in mid-retweak myself...

I guess I could post my default profile, b ut I could tell you what my settings are in about 3 lines.... The problem s are...
a) I use a 52" wide triplescreen setup - that means I turn my head a LOT - if I was confined to the middlescreen only, my settings would be totally different... well, sensitivity for one...

Here's a quickie on my setup...
Profile Page
Yaw = 1.0
Pitch = 1.4
Roll plus X, Y and Z all zero  (I'm not using leaning till I get the others right)

Top 2 on 45, the rest on 15

Then click the "Curves" icon

In here I rightclick the top curve - choose "deadzone" - "small deadzone"
then right click again - choose copy to - all

Thats it.... Currently I'm tweaking sensitivity and smoothing with Yaw only, then doing the same with pitch... Trying to get a natural feel...
(notice how my pitch (up and down) is higher than my Yaw (side to side)?
Thats because my monitor setup is very wide = lots of side to side movement - but very little up and down - so it needs higher sensitivity to travel further with less movement.....

It's all so very personal to your setup, I really think you'll have to bite the tweaking bullet and experiment a bit...

One final point which gets overlooked but which needs to be right for proper tracking is the Model position...

In freetrack click the "Model" icon...

look underneath the diagram - those three sliders...
You need to first picture where the pivot point is (middle of your spine/neck at a point just below the ear.....)
Now - everybodys hat or clip is different..... whereabouts in YOUR rig is YOUR point R (the middle one) in relation to YOUR pivot point???

Get a ruler out or something - start adjusting these sliders... its fairly important for a smooth ride...

All this stuff can be preset out of the box - coz everybodys the same....
With freetrack it's get a ballpark idea and tweak from there until you're happy...

Hope this helps a  bit...
