Damn, that's not a bad one! Look at my specs! Sure, an i7 processor, quite old by now and a GTX970
card. You also have one of those fairly modern hybrid HD's! You shouldn't have to suffer from lag
in games at all. BUT, all these games support the so called TrackIR protocol for headtracking so
that's why I didn't have to change any settings in opentrack to get it going. The problem though
is the mapping curves, they ought to be different! BTW, do you know how to record a game session?
If you do, that would be a nice way of showing me how it works now for you in all the games we've
talked about 'til now! Any outstanding questions now?

Just tried Dirt Rally and X plane without the delanclip and they both worked fine so I will make a couple of new profiles and have a mess around. Absolutely no idea on how to record a game session, maybe something to think about.

Short description of ONE possible way of recording when using a Nvidia graphics card.

1. Install Geforce Experience from Nvidia if not already installed.
2. Go to Settings, the cog-wheel up to the right.
3. Choose GENERAL, I think it is, at the menu to the left.
4. Activate OVERLAY IN GAME.
5. Right below the activtion switch, you've got SETTINGS, I think.
6. Check in there that the path for saving is OK, change if you like, or just note where.
7. Dismiss Geforce Experience, not needed any more.
8. In game, use ALT+Z to get the recording menu on screen, activate RECORD -> START
9. Play the game.
10. ALT+Z again and RECORD -> STOP
11. DONE, upload to YouTube or something and SHARE.

OK thanks Bengan. doesn't look too frightening :D I will leave it for the time being at least.but I can always come back to it. Thank you!
Somehow managed to sort out the problems with Dirt Rally and X plane :D With x plane there was a small IR box that needed ticking. i also lowered the graphic settings a little. Dirt Rally just seemed to need a new profile. Ah well that's enough excitement for me in one day! But that load of empty pallets won't drive itself, so I'm back on the road again :D Thank you for bullying me into buying the headtracker, then helping me set it up. I should have done this much earlier.

Well, the way I am, I'm the one that is most happy about that it works now for you! :D
You are right now in doing some driving and getting REALLY used to the new environment!
But, as I always says, if you got a question, you know where to find me! :lol:
