  1. Seems pretty good at not losing track but I wouldn't know about lagging as I haven't the experience with the other systems.
  2. From the information I have, its seems to be only set up to link to your PC via wifi. Into your phone you input your PC's IPv4 address and the port number used by Opentrack.
  3. Yes it needs to see your face to function. I have found no issues with lighting. Works with daylight and with lamp light at night. It doesn't seem to lose track when your head is turned. It gets confused a little when I take a sip of my beer, but quickly recovers as soon as the bottle is put back on the desk :). This system also has true 6 degrees of freedom.
  4. I have no experience of other tracking solutions. However to me it seems pretty good. I can check my six easily by leaning either left or right and at the same time turning my head. My experience is that fine tuning Opentrack is the key, and maybe took me an hour maximum of trial and error before I got the movement I needed. You need to set your default head position in the cockpit first and press F10 before starting Opentrack and SmoothTrack. I hadn't done this as I thought I could adjust my default head position using SmoothTrack/Opentrack but I was wrong. To be honest I wouldn't now try any of the other head tracking solutions. Next step would likely be VR?
  5. My phone connects to Windows 10 on my PC via Wifi. No problems. Obviously no camera apart from the one on the phone. Position your phone at the centre base of your monitor. It uses the front facing camera on the phone, and the phone screen can be dimmed to stop distraction etc.
  6. There is a new smart phone app just out which tracks your head position using the phone camera, and feeds it to Opentrack via wifi. Its called SmoothTrack and sells for $9.99 / £9.99 After a bit of usual tweaking of Opentrack settings I have got it working really well on BOS. Very impressed. No wires / headsets / LEDs / special cameras and very cheap. Would recommend it. Here are the links:- http://inflightassistant.com/smoothtrack/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpTF89_fCyc

  9. I have enjoyed many hours on V4.5 on Steam where I get about 30 FPS. I have now downloaded BLITZ edition but it is unplayable as the FPS has dropped down to 8 to 10. All settings are the same between the two versions. My computer spec is i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz, NVIDIA GeForce 840M,16 GB Ram, 1 TB Disc Space. Very frustrating!! Any help would be very much appreciated. Thankyou.
