cool! I got it working. But it is terribly slow, you look to the side and only second after does the tracking follow, and then only slooowly.

is this something that will be better with a better webcam?

also, it would be nice to still be able to pan view using the hat switches...or am I missing a trcik? :)

Same as I found.. it works very well, just toooooo slllloooooowwwwww....

Hi SAS~CirX,

Nice to hear you got it working and thanks for your compliments  :D

For you, there may be some tweaking to do, to get it working faster. It would help if you gave us some info on the software and hardware you use. What fps do you get? What are your settings?

About the 'pan view': how is that done normally (I'm no experienced IL2 user)?

hi V4Friend....
i'll answer so long, because Cirx might only be back in a few hours...
the pan view he mentions is an axtra function on the joystick - the 'hat' - that can be used to manipulate your view up/down/left/right, etc....
so, in conjunction to using the mouse to look around inside the cockpit, the 'hat' pan view can be used as well...
hope that explains it properly, if you're not sure, just ask more... ;D

yes, what molone says ir right.

Software wise, I am on XP. Geforce 9600 GT. The camera I got is a cheap little Genius Look 310s. Thats is why I wonder if it may be worth getting a better one, from your list.

I get about "8hz" currently on the camera in the FNNIR window. It tracks my features no problem. just the panning in game is slow, which would probably be ok, if I could also still use the hat switch for viewing.

Holy smokes !! 8 FPS only ?  ???  :D
can you find some setting for the camera ( software or something ) ?
to make it smooth you have to make your camera to pull out at least
25+ FPS , of course the more the better  8)
If I leave my camera settings to be automatically managed by camera
software then I'll get only useless 15 FPS , that's why I mentioned guys
checking for camera management and setting it all to manual and reducing
especially " exposure " setting  :)
Exposure setting have a huge impact on camera FPS .

Hi Shardana,

The (free) non-commercial version of faceAPI I'm using automatically selects the first camera it finds and won't let you select another. So you should disable the built-in web-cam. I guess that should be possible from Windows Hardware Management...

In my case, I can't find any settings for the camera, and it only gives 15hz, but its perfectly smooth and tracks better than my trackir 1 - its just too slow to follow in IL2.. very smooth though... Bummer... so close!

With 15hz ( FPS ) you must be in red on FaceTrackNoIR software , I couldn't move any
smooth and fast around with only 15 but it doesn't look slow in the video I posted or does it
with camera @ 30 FPS ?  8)
First thing is to trying to get camera hz ( FPS ) number in to green color and then trying to
configure speed of looking around inside cockpit .
If you don't find anything that might be managing your camera settings without chance to
set it on manual values , then you'll get stuck with only 15 or less , that's why I did show those
two pictures , one is 15 with automatic managed settings and the other is after manual
setting with green 30 FPS camera configuration .
Unfortunately yes , if you don't have any camera management software available , then
there is likely nothing else you can do about it  :-X
I was stuck at the beginning and having slideshow movement inside cockpit but after going through
Arma 2 forum feedback about FaceTrackNoIR topic a lot of guys already figured out what
needs to be done , which camera settings needs to be adjusted so I just did all those
advices and got 30 FPS and smooth and fast movement inside cockpit even when recording
video with FRAPS which cause rather a big FPS hit also and still in the video posted in one
of my previous posts the speed of head movement is pretty fast considering recording with
FRAPS .
It's tricky for some to set up FaceTrackNoIR but camera green FPS is a must to make it work
as it should be  8)
I don't want to look like a smart ass , I was also struggling at some point but as I have said
Arma 2 forum guys have figured out already a lot of tricks and giving a good advices  :)
