i have a webcam, and cam2pan

when i turn cam2pan on, and turn the flashlight on my cellphone on infront of the camera, cam2pan recognizes it and locks onto it, therse a box that appears on the light source


im going to ducttape the flash light to one of my old hats, with the flashlight on so it can follow it on my head.

but when i start Il2, il2 screen does not move, just sits there even when i move my head.

what do you have to do to make cam2pan work with il2 1946?

Does cam2pan move your mouse cursor while in windows?

put an exposed slide ( black) on the camera lens, and use a remote control diode, works much better and doesn't get "lost" on other light sources.

I bought cam2pan a few years ago, and it is a very viable alternative to TrackIR for the less fortunate of us.

Nothing beats TrackIR, but this is very fun to play with. It was worth my ten US bucks (at the time).

I wouldn't recomend strapping a phone to my head. Take apart an old remote control, get the IR LED out of it. Voila: No visible glare on your monitor. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

YES!!

This software was originally developed to assist disabled persons to enjoy their machines. With practice, the use of the keyboard can be minimal; certain head movements may be mapped to produce different key commands.

Oh, yeah . . . the cam2pan people are way-nice-wicked-cool. They are always willing to help in case you need it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Did you go into your config? Under the header [rts]Make Trackir use=1
