Support for Future Pinball?

Post by Jabberwock » Wed Nov 09, 2005 12:02 pm

Could all the nice developers consider getting TIR support into Future Pinball? Please, please, pretty please?

Really, this is a game/system which would really benefit from head tracking. As you have both hands on the flipper buttons, using Tab to look up the score is very uncomfortable... If you could just look around there... Not to mention 6DOF, you could put your nose to the glass, then back out again, look down the lane... I'd better stop here.

I think the game has to support free look for this to work. But I really like the idea. I will defenitly by this game if it gets support for Tir.

Update:

the game now supports mouse freelook, so adding TrackIR support should be a breeze...

Mouse emulation works, but suffers from typical problems... It makes no sense to use it, as the game gets the absolute viewpoint from relative mouse, while mouse emulation converts absolute coords to relative mouse movements...

Has NaturalPoint contacted the devs of the game?

The new FP with TIR support has been released. It seems though that also TIR game list has to be updated...

Hi

The TIR doesn't work for me and I haven't got a clue whats wrong. I've downloaded the latest TIR game profiles for the Pinball game.
The versions I use are:
TIR 4.1.029
Virtual Pinball v1.6b.20061029

Any idea?

Regards
Wilfried
