Need Help In Setting Up TrackIR 5 Software

by SniperMan » Thu Jul 09, 2009 5:31 am

I just purchased the TrackIR 5 w/Trackclip Pro for ARMA II. I am using the TrackIR5 Beta software, and need help in just setting up the head alignment. What do I look for regarding the X-Y axis graphs? What are the 3-color vectors used for? I dowloaded the NaturalPoint TrackIR Users Manual version 5.0, but it doesn't go into detail in explaing what you're trying to accomplish and what you need to do to align your head using the software.

You want to try and have the 3 IR leds fairly centered in the camera view, then use the F12 key (center option) to recalibrate the view point within the application/software itself.

3 color vectors?

I had to move my camera over to the far left side of my monitor to keep the tracking centralised and to retain the full capture angle. So do not be put off if you have to move the camera when you do as Vincent sugests.
