As far as TIR, it's a neat concept, but I would think your neck would get sore after a while. Doubt I'd even try it.
This... I can't even imagine how annoying aiming would be trying to fight with your head and your mouse to stay still trying to acquire a target. I don't really think it belongs in FPSes.

You only have to keep your head facing forward which you do anyway. Plus this also allows for checking corners to be made that bit easier.

Also I imagine the pilots and vehicles drivers would appreciate this system.

Re: TRACK IR??


This looks like something that, while neat, has no place in a massively multiplayer online game. The cost of the peripheral combined with the advantages it provides don't belong on something with a F2P model.

trust me your neck doesnt hurt. I have owned every iteration from thte 3 on up to the 5 and this thing is the best periphrial since the joystick or mouse. In fact if start a game that I play and forget to start my track IR, I HAVE To restart. I wont play without it its that cool.

There are alternatives to Track IR as well that are free. (all you need is a webcam) and the freetrack software.


And to who said it doesn't belong in an MMOFPS. I would say this is exactly where it belongs.

Everyone wants this game be be cutting edge and next gen. Well here you go! This is a present day product that feels next gen! Its very intuitive and customized to suite any players preferences.


trust me once you try track IR you wont go back. You almost feel handicapped with out it.

While this isn't as hard as you think it is. It fits best when used just in vehicles where your POV is fixed at the 12 oclock position. If you think about it. That is SO out dated. You can look everywhere on the ground, why not bring in the ability to look around while in a vehicle or aircraft. It makes perfect sense. We have the tech to accomplish it, why dont we use it?

Re: TRACK IR??


Not going to happen unless the track IR manufacturer decides to sponsor SOE. I would say no more than 5% of the player base would actually use Track IR even if it were natively supported by SOE. It would be undesirable to spend resources on developing something that could not benefit majority of the player base.

Really stupid

This is the thought of someone who has never used it. I can understand your concern. However. the way track IR works is that the head in game only turns at a ration to what your head turns. Say 3:1(and its adjustable) that means you are still looking at your screen while turning your head. Trust me it works AMAZINGLY well. I have had one since the track IR 3 and it is AWESOME.

Once again.. You do not have to code in anything but freelook which has already been asked for. Track IR is just an input like a hat switch on a joystick. No other development needed by SOE. The TIR software (and other freeware) do it for you.

Re: Planetside 2 & TrackIR


Looking at all of those titles, I don't see any that are explicitly designed for competitive multiplayer. That's why I don't see Track IR catching on for this sort of game. It's the question of adding in a feature that only a few will be able to use, in addition to a freelook function that developers may not have wanted to put in to begin with.

EDIT: I have been reading these, and, at the risk of bumping this thread again, I'll just edit this in: I'm not a fan of free look while on foot at all - do it with your mouse. I'm a fan of free look for pilots of vehicles that do not have guns. Just because a feature can be put in, doesn't necessarily mean it should. If there's going to be free look, fine, use the damn peripheral; I'll be keeping my money. If there isn't, then this discussion is moot anyway. It's not a question of 'development time' or any of that BS. If SOE wants something done, the devs will get it done regardless of available time.

The feature does not need to be added by SOE at all. I guess you havent been reading the threads. and went straight to damning my post. Freelook is ALL that is needed. Track IR software (Or freeware) does the rest.

Ill point some games out
INFANTRY SUPPORTED GAMES
America's Army
ArmA: Combat Operations (Armed Assault)
ArmA 2
ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead
Arma 2: Reinforcements
Insurgency


Do I really need to list the multitude of MP Combat flight simulator games listed?

COMBAT Vehicle Games
ArmA: Combat Operations (Armed Assault)
ArmA 2
ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead
Arma 2: Reinforcements

C.A.R.S.

Do I really need to list the driving games?

Point is I found several that are ALL enhanced by Track IR.

I pretty sure, we shoot, fly, drive in PS2 .... Yup TRACK IR does that.

Waste of development time, IMO.

And no, not including support for your overpriced gimmicky peripheral is not "pissing" on the track ir community.

LOL someone who has never used it, would say its gimmicky. Just like those gimmicky big flat monitors, or that gimmicky joystick thingy bobber. And whats that rodent device....... oH yeah the MOUSE what a laugh that thing is............

Don't be so closed minded. Its an amazing peice of tech. that has free alternatives, like Freetrack, facetrack NO IR, and some people even made some out of Wii controllers.

What is the percentage of players who would realistically be expected to make use of this feature were it to be supported? This is the first time I've even heard of this, myself.
