    Heureka, it works! I hadn't set smoothing to 0 with opentrack. That seemed to be the problem. Now it is only matter of fine tuning.

    Thanks for the help!

    FYI, it appears it wasn't smoothing causing the issue. It was a noob mistake of not pushing "start" in opentrack. :oops:

    You can't use it without opentrack?

    No, not in R3E, if you want full functionality. But it's not that hard, once you've got the axes right.

    I have a lag with opentrack. I will try without filtering.

    When using OpenTrack the axes inGame must not be assigned. This caused problems when I started using it

    Turn of smoothing?

    And run it through Opentrack, better compability with titles, and once you find a setting you like, it usually translates well enough into other titles. Keep in mind AMS and rF1&2 have much lower sensitivity in their tracking plugin so you may want to set up another profile for thoose. R3E plays nice though and I use the same settings for R3E, iRacing, Assett Corsa, Project CARS and Euro Truck Sim. =)

    It is off.
    I have a center dead zone where nothing happens until i turn the head at about 5-10 degrees.
    It's too much imo.

    De-assign bindings in game options!!! (I think it's the ESC-key, that does the trick)
    Functions for EDtracker must be empty/not assigned

    Honestly just take 20 minutes and watch Brumsters tutorials gp20. It's not that complex.

    I have hit a snag with setting up my DIY EDTracker, I've tried to install the Arduino drivers(top link here: http://edtracker.org.uk/index.php/downloads/category/7-drivers), but there doesn't seem to be 64-bit drivers for Intel, only for AMD. I'm running Windows 10 64-bit on an Intel CPU. Does anyone know where I might be able to find compatible 64 bit intel Arduino drivers? Thanks

    It's been a while but I'm pretty sure I found everything at the Edtracker site. Running Intel as well.

    Are you running 64-bit Intel? The driver package on the EDTracker site only seems to contain 32 bit Intel and 64 bit AMD, and my 64-bit Windows 10 PC refuses to install the 32-bit Intel driver

    Hi, the drivers are for both intel and amd, amd64 is the name for both. Was going to try and explain in my terms but copied and pasted. AMD came up with the 64bit x86 instruction set/architecture extensions, so they got to name it, hence AMD64 even on an intel.

    Hmmm... EDTrackerMag V4.0.5 seems to recognise my EDTracker without a driver, so maybe it doesn't need one on Windows 10? Or do I still need to install the drivers?

    Okay, I've now managed to install the "AMD64" drivers and it seems to work better, now to configure in Open Track...

    Brumster who's one of the people behind EdTracker made a tutorial about it a while back.
    I'd start there, then tweak it to your liking. Much like when setting up the car, take it slow and get used to the changes. Well unless something is obviously annoying you. At times I disable everything but looking left/right, then I'll change it and run full 3 DoF etc. Have a few profiles these days depending on the game/mood.

    Thanks, will try to have a tinker. Would also like to use it in ETS 2 and AMS.

    Works excellent for all those, may want a seperate setting for AMS with the sensitivity turned up a bit as a rF plugin used for headtracking isn't quite as sensitive out of the box as R3E and ETS 2.
