Opentrack output FlightGear

Hi all,

At this years FSWeekend I was introduced to FlightGear, and so far I love it. The customizability is awesome, but can be overwhelming. I did however complete my multi monitor setup that has proven impossible in other sims.

To get to the point; I was trying to get headtracking working. I planned on using opentrack with PointTracker 1.1 as input and the FlighGear output option built into opentrack. But this is where i hit a wall... I don't know how to make this interface with FlightGear, so could anyone shed some light on it?

BTW, my headtracking itself is working, i can use my mouse with it, so it reakky is a problem of how to make opentrack "talk" to FlightGear.

Thx for future help :D

Maybe these FlightGear wiki articles could be a starting point:

I know that some have been using head tracking, but have no experience with it myself.
