Default Add Track IR support to PR

So it seems that someone has developed TrackIR support for BF2, NP are thinking about implementing it some way for single player vBF2 play - non multi player. Would you like to see trackIR working in Reality?

Would be really cool, especially for pilots, giving people better and fuller immersion into the game.

For people who dont know what it is. It is a device that tracks the motion of your head and sends that info to your computer. Turn your head left, the virtual character's vision turns left. This allows you to see alot more and offers a free look around without pressing any buttons.

As for adding it. While it is a nice thing to have, I dont think too many people in this community have it. If it is put in, keep it in SP.

Wow, thats cool. But wouldnt it be more annoying to have to turn your head away from the screen when wanting to look at a certain direction?

he said it in this post

But if someone has hacked BF or something then i guess it might work for singelplayer, I dont think PB will like it in multiplayer

It would be nice to have for infantry. I remember playing in WW2OL where they had a look left and look right keys. Came in VERY handy. I know it would it PR as well. I wouldn't pay for it though..lol.

@ ReaperMAC - You don't turn your head away from the screen at all, you can program the Tracker software to use very subtle movements of you head (i've very restricted movement in my neck and I use it fine), once you use it for a while you don't even give it a second thought.

@ solodude23 - can't see it working 1st person like ARMA tbh, could be surprised though!


@ Cp20000 - i'd never seen this video before tonight! there is Track IR working in game with complete 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) look how he can look over the top of things, and duck down behind the dash of the jeep, for example, or, the way he fly's the jet, looks around, and can still control the jet - even firing weapons (though he does seem to lose the hud, which is to be expected imo). that's not just using TrackIR mouse emulation to look left,right,up,down, that's proper trackIR that is!
