When you move your head, don't you look off screen? How does this work?
You keep your eyes on the screen and your head movements are exaggerated, so slight movements of the head translate to larger movements of the camera. It becomes very intuitive very quickly.
My computer is hooked up via Ethernet and my phone via WiFi - will this still work?
Yes! You just need to make sure your device can reach your PC. It’s possible you will need to open ports up in your router for this, though. Check this site for info on how to set up port forwarding on your router.
What is the best place to set up my phone?
Best is as central as possible in front of your face. I usually just prop my phone up under my monitor. But you can also buy a cheap phone clamp and position it closer to your face. As long as you're not more than 1-1.5 arms' lengths away from your phone and it's as centered as possible, you should be good.
This is amazing! Do you have any tips to achieve even better latency?
Thanks for the kind words, anonymous stranger. A couple tips: Use a 5 GHz WiFi, use the USB connection mode, have the camera close to your face.
I’ve followed your setup instructions, but the octopus in OpenTrack is still not moving! What could I be doing wrong?
Here are a few extra things to try if the normal steps don’t work, in the order of how often they helped folks with issues. So sorry - I know all too well how network issues can be a headache. The good news is, once you find the solution, you’re good!
Everything was working great but suddenly the movement is super jerky and random!
That’s not a question, but anyways...the jerkiness is something a very few have reported. Usually what fixes it is one of the following:
I bought the game on iOS - can I have it for free on Android? (or vice versa)
Sorry, no - the two store systems are completely distinct so it is like Xbox and Playstation. Buying the game in one system does not unlock it in the other.
