I’m not sure where exactly to post this so feel free to move it wherever it should go.
I’ve been running into a problem with my Tobii 4C when trying to play Il-2: Battle of Stalingrad. I have the 4C, a Thrustmaster Warthog joystick+throttle, and a set of MFG Crosswind pedals that I use for flight sims. Everything works great together in DCS World, but when I try to play Il-2 the 4C will not respond at all while the MFG Crosswind pedals are plugged in. Unplugging the pedals and restarting the game results in the 4C working perfectly. When I plug the pedals back in and restart the game then the 4C goes back to being completely nonfunctional. If I open the vJoy monitor while the game is running with the pedals plugged in there is no input at all from the 4C.
I’m not sure if this is an issue with the Tobii software, vJoy, or Il-2 itself, but I would love to be able to use my $300 rudder pedals and I really like using the eyetracker instead of TrackIR. And as I said before everything works together perfectly fine when I’m playing DCS World. I’ve tried reinstalling vJoy in all sorts of ways and doing all sorts of things to make it work myself such as using different USB ports/hubs but I’ve run out of ideas and at this point I’m fairly certain it’s just a programming issue with something. Unfortunately I have nearly no clue how everything works together from a coding standpoint so I could really use some help. I’d be happy to provide any config or log files that might be helpful.
Are you planning to make your eye Tracker enabled application/game available to many people? We hope so, and for this reason, we have done our best to make it easy for you to distribute your applications and games built using the Tobii SDKs.
When you download a Tobii SDK you agree to an SDK License Agreement that (with a few exceptions) allows you distribute the Tobii client library files necessary to add eye tracking to your application. One limitation is that you may only use the Tobii Core SDK to develop interactive applications. If you want to develop software for analytical purposes, post processing or aggregation of eye tracking data across multiple users, please Contact Tobii Pro. Also, you may not use the SDK to develop software that is used in so-called high-risk use applications.
We at Tobii also want to do our best to help you reach as many people as possible with your application, and help you to commercialize it if that is your goal. Contact us if you want to know more about what the opportunities will be for you during the current year, and how we expect the market for eye tracking in consumer electronics to evolve.
