ACC Support for EDTracker... it's really simple to implement :)

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by Team EDTracker, Oct 1, 2018.

  1. Hi,

    This is a message for the ACC devs from an EDTracker dev :)

    To support EDTracker as a device to control the in-sim view it is very easy. There is no API or special software needed.

    EDTracker appears to Windows as a USB joystick. Roll, pitch and yaw and output as joystick x,y,z values.

    To support EDTracker in ACC you would need to allow the user to bind a joystick input to "look up/down" and "look left/right".

    Of course if TrackIR support is added then EDTracker would be supported via the Opentrack utility (as it is in AC)

    We're happy to provide ACC devs with a couple of EDTrackers if it help ;)

    Kind Regards,

    Rob James

    Just curious, why would you as a CV1 owner be hoping?



    But yeah, old but not obsolete :D

    A couple of reasons really. The main one is that I have recently had a diagnosis of a medical condition which, currently, does not like me using VR. MS basically. And, as good as VR is at increasing the feeling of immersion, the feeling from me is that the investment required for the next gen of VR wouldn't be worth it, the current gen having the limitations it does. Now, I'm not averse to spending a few quid on my pc set up, as my sig shows ;), but my priorities have changed a little.

    Added to that, I'm just trying to help out those guys/gals that aren't able to go down the VR route and my initial experience of the ED Tracker, before I delved into VR, was nothing but good, especially with the triple screens. Here's hoping that Kunos can quite easily add that functionality :)

    When you know that you can not even bind and use the left joystick on a Fanatec wheel to look around you.... this is just unbeliveble. It's a 2019 game we are speaking about guys :)

    Correction; a 2019 early access game.

    When you know that developer answered already that that is an issue and it will be fixed but people still cry that is not there. Internet in 2019 :)

    It would be helpful, maybe, creating a single thread reporting all the missing/not working things, just like a ToDo list.
    Then we or the Devs strikethrough the point that has been fixed.
    This way maybe some people will complain less?
    In the end it's an EA and we all knew the drill: we are public betatesters, hoping we will give Kunos a better way to improve the sim.

    Sources please ? I will be happy to read that official statement.

    @mister dog

    Are you serious ? you wanna play on words... this is just trolling.
    That look around problem is just an AC problem/choice, you can use freelook in major racing sim games published way before 2018 lol

    The thing you did not get is the emphasis on "early access". Free look around just does not matter at the current milestone, while I do think without a shadow of a doubt that this feature, along with headtracking, will be available in coming versions.

    I mean, COME ON!, the kunos guys developed their own graphics engine which supported everything from free look around to head tracking to Oculus and OpenVR, don't you think it's plain ridiculous to doubt they won't be able to implement those features in their newest product? Do you really think it's necessary to summon even @Team EDTracker to give the devs a lesson how to implemenhead tracking? Sheesh … :rolleyes:

    Speaking about lessons, you should do your homework before summoning anyone yourself... o_O

    AC1 never supported analog channels assigning to look around while driving. You can only assign a button to look left and a button to look right, like in ACC today. So it's a choice from the Kunos dev from start.

    Now they use a commercial engine, not thier own anymore, UE4 can support natively free look around and they still decided to stay with their old look left/right system. Very disapointing for a 2019 upcoming game... but will see in the future.

    Whoops, my bad. :( As anything using the TrackIR protocol gives you free camera movement in AC1, I assumed free look around wouldn't be an issue either. (As you can tell by this posts, I never tried to use it but went for EDTracker and, later, VR instead.)
    However, if you take opentrack, use the analog joystick as input and the TrackIR protocol as output, that'll work.

    (Yeah, bad excuse, I know. I was wrong, my bad, sorry.)

    I haven't seen any decision about this anywhere, just a current state. That's what I was trying to express.

    Exactly.

    I bought an EDtracker last week to use with AC, Due to cost i cannot consider anything VR atm, EDtracker is a good compromise for people on a tight budget, Its nice to be able to glance at the Apex when you are turning in! I really hope its implemented in ACC.

    Here here. I can't really entertain buying a VR setup but will get one of these in a heartbeat if it works with ACC.

    From the 0.6 change log:

    - Camera movement settings now stored in Config/CameraSettings.jon, the old CameraOptionsEA.json is deprecated. General Movement adjusts movements in cockpit camera, Dashcam Factor adjust how much of that movement is transferred to the dash and bonnet cameras.
    IMPORTANT: old camera settings will be lost.
    - Look L/R now works correctly in helmet camera. Look L/R looks to the side mirrors.

    Won't be able to boot up the game till later, can anyone check if you can bind joystick inputs to look up/down/left/right now please?
