Hey there,

So I just installed XWAU again now that I got my Delanclip Fusion and wanted to play with headtracking, but when I select TrackIR from the Babufreak settings, nothing happens in-game. I guess I have to bind the axis, but I'm not sure how. Or does this only work with the TrackIR Software? Sorry if I posted this on the wrong section, if so, I can gladly remove it and post it on the right place. Thank you!

I think it's possible to use OpenTrack. You need to select TrackIR in the Babu Frik configurator, and then you need to feed data to XWA using the TrackIR protocol. However, I believe you can do that with OpenTrack. I have never done this myself, so I can't say that it works first hand, but it looks like others have been successful. See the following links for details:

Hi i've tried it with open Track and yes it works with out problem.
But i think ist is not good for playing. Why?
To look around you have to move your head, but when you move your head you don't look at the Monitor !
So i moved my head to the left side and my eyes to the right side to see the Monitor and thats not good for playing for me.
Technical it works good but the playing and feeling is strange for me.
It's better to burn out than to fade away .
