BF2FreeLook - head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan views
 
PR pilots should probably look into this:

"BF2FreeLook brings view controls normally expected of PC air combat games to Battlefield 2; head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan view controls are available for pilot, bomber copilot and driver positions with no loss of vehicle controls."

Yes, but wasn't that utilizing the updated game engine that BF2142 had? As in it wouldn't work in BF2 PR.

I was under the impression that was for the 3D hud, but I could be wrong. I definitely remember something about it being 2142 specific, but then again adjustable sights and thermals were also said to be 2142 only or totally impossible and here we find ourselves in 0.97 :) Not to mention that the BF2freelook is a proof of concept anyway.

Oh maybe it was only the 3d sights then, I dont quite remember either. I wonder what else could be squeezed out of the refactor2 engine. I mean heck there are even ~120 player servers now.

Ok, so now its time for fastropes.

Since the HUD is drawn to the screen, it moves with the view

Holy.... shit.... :D :D :D F**KIN THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

In all seriousness though, Thanks for this find. I'm not gonna download this until I pickup my TrackIR from my mothers house but I'm wondering does this work with TrackIR or only this freelook program? Probably a dumb question.

IMO this got to be stickied or something because this is just one of the best things to happen for PR.
I hope this will force the devs to bring in 3D huds.. Not necessary for transport but the gunships and jets yea..

Quite a bit more than just code tweaking tbh, it also mean re-modelling the cockpits as well as loads of other stuff.

Re: BF2FreeLook - head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan views
 
the headtracking works well with facetracknoir, VX1000 webcam and the bf2freelook tool in project reality... tested it on coop on al basrah, also works in jeeps etc...

i can easily turn on/off the headtracking in a half second via strg...
i love it!!!

thx i waited so long for this tool... :D

Re: BF2FreeLook - head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan views
 
So... How do I set this up? With a web-cam?

LyRiCs 2011-09-05 16:42

you need:
-facetracknoir software (free)
-a webcam
-bf2freelook tool (also free from here)


read the manual for facetracknoir, you need to do some config

Does it work in helicopters for you?

When I jump in choppers, the movement appears a lot more laggy than in jets.

Re: BF2FreeLook - head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan views
 
oh wow ....

I was messing around yesterday flying jets and helos using a Wired Xbox controller and this would be a good addition to my little experiment ;)

the link for facetracknoir is
http://facetracknoir.sourceforge.net...s/download.htm

keep in mind that Facetracknior is currently uncompilable with newer processors such as i3 and i5
"info under known bugs"

It wasnt working with mine and i am running an i5

( NEW ) I actually downloaded it again got it up and running after the stupid Waterfall procedure error went away after uninstalling the IPP library Intel crap thingy . . NOW only trying to figure out how to get the Facetrack Noir to work with the BF2 Freelook and work with the game .... looking for tips :P

LyRiCs 2011-09-06 11:46

i have an i7 and it works...

hm, i didnt tried a jet, only helicopter and some cars like HMV..

the sensivity is different in jets? sounds not normal ^^

I tried freetracknoir, but i wear glasses so the reflection from my lenses would throw off the tracking. However with no glasses it work perfectly although moving my head dont mean crap if i cannot see the screen without my glasses on. Win7 64 bit on a i5 OC to 3.8ghz.

I went back to using freetrack and a home made IR led setup for my headset. Will take a look at this addon.

I get an error :/

Edit: Oh i had to uninstall IPP-runtime and get a working one from http://www.seeingmachines.com/produc...api/downloads/


Is there a way to make the middle dead zone smaller? Also there is a really annoying delay in movement. About 1 second. A killer if you ask me.

Does this affect the missile system? As in the pilot being able to launch a missile from a 180 degree angle?

To clarify things for everyone, by newer processors he means Sandybridge processors.

If you have a Sandybridge and still want to use facetracknoir, either wait for update 1.6 or donate to the facetrack devs and they will give you the 1.6 beta.

I confirm it works for me with FaceTrackNoIR and a Built-in iSight by Apple.
If u need help setting it up let me know

Carbonade, are you using the default .ini provided by bf2freelook or did u modify it a bit?

I have a condition that makes my eyes wobble so cannot wear them, they would end up rolled up at the corner of my eyes. Ive had the condition since birth so my brain has developed a steady cam feature and every thing looks normal (not wobbleing) unless im drunk then the fun starts as my brain starts to lagg.

?160 for trackir and head clip and cannot use it as a imput device for freetrack so you can look about in bf2. Freeware is the future. Has any one modded the trackir drivers so you can use it as a web cam. All it dose it filter out normal light and look for IR. you could use freetrack and a Wii remote or web cam with the headclip from your track IR setup that would work.

I was using a modified version I made from the FreeFalcon.ini, I put up a link so that you can get it if you want it.

I also used Freetrack so that I could set the gameprotocol in FaceTrackNoIR to "Freetrack" so that BF2Freelook could understand the


If you didn't understand what I was talking about look at these two screenshots:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18526713/FaceTrackNoIR.JPG

I am not 100% sure if the option to use Freetrack isn't there if you do not have Freetrack installed, so correct me if I am wrong.

Re: BF2FreeLook - head tracking, mouselook, snap and pan views
 
so we need 3 things..?

Ok, this is what I did:
1. Download all Freetrack, FacetrackNoIR and Bf2 freelook and install all 3 of them.
2. Open FacetrackNoIR and BF2 Freelook as admin.
3. Edit FacetrackNoIR settings in the facetrackNoIR window:
  • Game Protocol = "FreeTrack".
4. Run PR.
5. Modify the FacetrackNoIR settings until you are pleased with the results.
ELSE: If you would like to you could download my settings file and load it in FacetrackNoIR to use the same settings as I used, then modify them to fit your needs.
This made it work for me.

LyRiCs 2011-09-12 23:11
