The discussion started in the Flight Sim thread but it seems like this is a topic that deserves its own thread.
I bought the Smoothtrack app on the Play Store and set it up with Opentrack. Once I had done the relevant port forwarding I managed to get the phone to communicate with Opentrack. Now to get it working in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Apparently ACC does not support TrackIR but because the Unreal engine supports VR it can work. I found a config file that someone had set up, so loaded it in Opentrack and tested it out and…
It worked really well! A bit sensitive so maybe some tweaking would be in order but I couldn’t believe how well it tracked my head movements. So here I was looking into apexes, checking my side mirrors etc. I’ll include a video of how it works once I record one. Since my phone is used for the tracking I’ll need to borrow my wife’s phone to take the video.
The only issue now is to find a way to securely mount my phone.
Here’s the Opentrack settings file for ACC that I used (attached to the first post). You just need to convert the .xml to .ini by changing the extension and placing it in the configs directory.
