  1. Thank you for the headsup rel4y. I agree on the 8 axes. The 16 axes was from a 2014 reply from mega_mozg. I am going the shift registers way. I already have some of Debolestis Shift register 8 and 16 boards and I intend to order a set of his 32 boards as well. I have also gotten some of the ALPS 5 Way switch boards. I also intend to get some of your 4021 boards. I expect it to be 10 of them, but I will have to see what economics allow. I found possible use for the MCP3208. It could be for something like a Forklift simulator- or Farming simulator functions controller. I assume th
  2. Thank you very much Debolestis. I very much appreciate it and look forward to being able to order the resulting PCB’s. I am sorry that it has taken me this long to reply. Life have taken its share of time. My Grandmother lost a lot of weight in December. In the middle of January she was diagnosed with cancer and trouble with some of her inner organs. A first operation didn’t help and my German cousin from Australia, dropped everything and came up here to stay with Grandmother. My cousin and I hadn't seen each other for 38 years, so I went there to spend some quality time with our grandmo
  3. From the descriptions at Digi-Key the CI/P MCP320X chips are 12 bit and the I/P MCP320X chips are 10 bit. One reason is to free up available pins on the Pro Micro and another is to minimize the number of wires needed from a Pro Micro board in the controller base to a MCP and one or more shiftregister boards in the button/minijoy grip on a stick or collective. If my assumption that I only need 1 ground wire and 1 VCC wire to connect the MCP and the first shiftregister is correct, then I will only need 8 wires from a Pro Micro in the base to an MCP and first of however many shiftregisters
  4. That sounds really great In this context I would like to use ordinary joystick potentiometers. I have a fair number of them pulled out off different controllers old and new. They have different shapes, sizes and resistances, but that shouldn’t matter as I would like for the outputs and inputs to be for wire connections. Just like you have it on your 4021 shiftregister pcb’s. It is not only the 3208 I am wishing for, it is also the 3202 and 3204. The MCP3202 has 2 outputs: CH0 and CH1 and can control 2 pots. I would use this for a mini joystick in a buttonhead added to an existing
  5. Hello Debolestis First I would like to thank you for all that you have been doing for the community. I very much appreciate it. Have you considered doing OSH Park pcb’s for the MCP3202, MCP3204 and MCP3208 IC’s for use with MMjoy2? Something in the same vein as your shiftregister pcb’s. I am not asking because I don’t want to do it my self, but because I unfortunately lack the skills, instincts and knowledge to do it. Trying to make circuits is like gibberish to me. I know what the components do by them selves, but I have absolutely no grasp of what happens when combining them. I

  8. I know this is an older post but I thought that this could be beneficial for new users of opentrack. I posted this to the opentrack wiki at the date below. This is with opentrack 2.3.10 Opentrack 2.3.10/Options/Shortcuts The following commands leaves the camera and tracking on. The commands only work while tracking is active. Center Sets the current view as the “Look straight forward” point. This should be done, while being in the expected working pose. This can also be done automatically when starting the tracker, by activating the “Center at startup” option. Make su
  9. And after a little more research. The answer is no. Quote from the opentrack creator: "opentrack only supports directshow cameras, not proprietary camera protocols." Track IR5 uses proprietary camera protocols.
  10. Then again, probably not. A quote from this site: http://naturalpointofview.blogspot.com/p/trackir-criticism.html The TrackIR camera is an optical capture device like any consumer camera, it is however distinguished by its monochrome sensor, infrared filter and dedicated image processing chip. The monochrome sensor affords marginally better effective resolution over a color sensor and the infrared filter makes it work as an infrared tracker out of the box. The dedicated image processing chip is its biggest distinguishing feature which removes unnecessary information from video frames
  11. I cannot say if you can, but my guess is that it should be possible. If you can chose the camera and activate it, with something like Skype, then I am fairly certain, that you can use it with opentrack. I however don’t think that you will be able to use the IR LED’s on the camera. The easiest way to find out, is to download and install opentrack and try. Remember to run opentrack as admin. Get it here: https://github.com/opentrack/opentrack/releases There is a very good opentrack guide here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/34403-a-complete-guide-to-set-up-head-tracking-ope
  12. So you are saying that because my main workscreen at 32" only leaves room for 2 x 23,6" side screens, I should not bother? How is it self defeating? Sometimes you have to work with what you got and not what you wish for. If it is that easy and simple, then why is there so many questions in this thread? Yes, if you have 3 similar screens it is simple. When you move beyond that, it is anything but. Part of that, is that it is difficult to find the current and up to date information in here. Google mojo is not with you when you don't know what words you should search for. Sorry ab
  13. For me the labels are working in 2.5.1 Open Beta. I use 5 screens on 2 cards. 23,6" / 32" / 23,6" on GeForce GTX 970 for worldview. 2 x 8" on GeForce GT 710 for MFCD export with TM Cougar MFD's attached. I am now working on a how I got it to work thingie.
  14. Here is a picture of my screens with MFD's.
