Lawlcat, after you enable FreeTrack, you have to restart Arma. It'll crash first time, just rerun it.
moorsey, yes, it's down. I don't have a good place to put my files now, so it'll have to wait. I just improved accela, to quote from my last email to Wim:
He has the code for that, of course.
Also, I realized that it's important *not* to use FaceAPI internal filtering. It causes very bad lag, often 1/3 of a second or more delayed movement. With newest accela and proper accela curves (can't stress it enough - accela is only as good as the curves are), there's little to no jitter as well as little delay in movement.
Hope you guys enjoy it, and let's hope the relevant changes are integrated and released soon.
The server is back up. The latest Accela version isn't incorporated, however. If any of you want to test latest Accela, please send a PM and I'll provide a link.
I'm requesting help from programmers with regards to filtering jitter in tracker input. Testing and telling it's good is great and all, but the code won't write itself
Just a mathematics background is fine too, for instance the guy who wrote the EWMA filter does audio processing and not strictly programming.
Hi guys sorry noob question here.
I'm currently on a Macbook Pro i7 running Bootcamp Win 7 64bit and I've installed Facetracknoir v160.
I'm running it as admin but i all i get in the preview is a white screen instead of my ugly mug on the video. I see the green light on the isight come up so its activating the camera. And the camera works fine when using Skype in Win 7.
The X,Y,Z values are also changing as i move my head so i know its picking something up. Would anyone know what is causing the white video preview, and what i need to do to fix it? Just about to try installing faceAPI as well. Not sure if that will do the trick.
In this current state, whenever i open Arma 2 CO my character just looks straight up no matter what i do with my head.
Would appreciate any help, thanks.
Make sure the video widget is enabled. View -> Video widget. As for Arma, it's quite possibly a distinct issue.
Ok guys first off let me say this is awesome.
Second, I have no idea what I'm doing.
I started Arma up, enabled Freetrack, and my guy instantly starts staring at a spot to his extreme left on the ground. My default position of looking at the screen is translated to that. Any idea of what I should do? This is all a little new to me.
I think I may know part of the problem. When I'm just sitting here, the numbers on the left are going wild. It says my Z is like 56. I think it may think I'm backwards or something. Is there a way to zero them out?
Ok I found the button for centering it so that's helped a ton already. Now I just need to figure out how to change the sensitivity. It's a little too touchy.

I did use liquidpinky's values... and it worked flawlessly... look for his post in this thread... cheers!
Hello, I recently installed the program that is mentiond above, And i have a compatible webcam : Microsoft VX 3000
So in ArmA2 when i play i move just a lil bit and in the game it just goes much more then needed, Its really sensitive and that really bugs me.
How can i make it less sensitive so it would be playable ? It will be much fun to make this game more realistic using this awesome program !
Please help, thx
I simply can't resist posting here. Wim Vriend, the project originator, released an updated FreeTrack client, by hand-translating it from Delphi, fixing the crash-bug that occured!
So no more FreeTrack crashes. :-) It'll be of course included in the 1.7 point-release.Originally Posted by Wim Vriend (v4friend)
Kudos to Wim for taking the time to do this! I don't know Delphi other than hand-translating Troika's Arcanum image parser once...
Also, check out https://github.com/sthalik/facetracknoir-posix for stuffies that won't be included before 1.8 point-release. I plan to merge most, if not all of the features.
Dear ArmA and/or FaceTrackNoIR-users,
I am happy to announce that v170 of FaceTrackNoIR was released yesterday. The new version contains a number of important improvements, which also benefit many ArmA-users (mind you, also Take on Helicopters and other Bohemia-games are included!).
The most important new features:
- A new filter called Accela, providing great stability and yet maintain response;
- An IR-tracker called PointTracker. This was translated from the FreeTrack sources and is very useful for users, who already have an IR-headset;
- A new game-protocol called "FreeTrack 2.0", which supports all FreeTrack and TrackIR games, including all Bohemia-games. The problem of ArmA crashing on startup was solved. Users can now choose, which interface from FaceTrackNoIR to ArmA they want to use;
All new features are listed on the website. You are welcome to try v170, please visit the FaceTrackNoIR website
