Spend 5$ on some IR leds, sacrifice an old USB mouse to the tracking gods & install the pointtracker addon and you'll have much stabler tracking. It takes a bit of fiddly to get the curves where you want them.

If you don't mind looking around one of the better webcams is the Playstation Eye Toy (PS3), get the CL drivers and enjoy some 120fps tracking, identical to TrackIR, for a tenth of the cost.

i had someone on ETZY website or something like that make me a had with 3LEDs in it, it was like twenty or twentyfive quid. its ok, the PS eye camera i have kinda works it take some tweeking to not spaz out, issue i have is with turning to the sides a little it spazzes out and flashes the screen full lock both ways. its probably with how i have it setup. but yeah, its not very expensive. taking the IR filter out of the PSeye though is half a drama, it requires some brute force to get into the case.

Yeah, but ..NoIR pretends to be TrackIR so you get 6 dof. And if you use LEDS instead of face-tracking it uses a fraction of the CPU.

Trinus gyre on phone, then trinus gyre server plus open track on pc

Trinus gyre does video and head tracking over usb rather well

Be interested to hear how well that works with Elite.

Heres how I'm rolling

Colorcross hand
Old 720p 4.7 screen phone
Usb cable

Trinus gyre
Open track

Works well, gonna get a larger higher res screen or just make my own with an 6" ips panel

At 720p it's very playable with hardly any lag only problem is fuzzy text which is why I want to go bigger

If I could source a broken note 4, it would be awesome,

I may have a better VR streaming app for Android for you, I'll test it and let you know how it works with elite [emoji14]
The streaming itself is better at least.

Ah didn't know that. Streaming is a bit crap so I found another app that seems to do it better. TrackIR for head tracking so I don't need much else. But I sent feedback to the devs "pls true head tracking support", I look ridiculous with cardboard and TrackIR antennas rofl.

It definitely is grainy on a 768p display, it should be miles better with my OPO.. Once it arrives.

Both work, have tested only wireless myself.

Updates

I'm making my own HMD

Screen - unused kindle fire HDX 7" res 1920x1209

Lenses - ordered some 50mm short focal from yay3d, specially made for 7-8" screens

Gonna basterdise the colorcross headpiece and make my own screen mount.

Software, for the moment Trinus gyre via Usb tethering gives solid but not exceptional fps and great head tracking

Will build my own track ir and screen when I get paid.

Own thread worry or keep this here?

Okies

Current set up

Is rough as fook but workable,

I'm using a 1080p 5.5 inch Chinaphone I picked up second hand

An eva I am cardboard to hold the phone, with the aforementioned Yay3d lenses

Trinus gyre for screen mirroring, can also split screen any game

And a delanclip and ps3 camera for head tracking

Runs elite pretty well also used for arma and even a few platformers and a game of lol, will take some pics later.
