What's the status of the support of android IMUs and wiimote for this?
Is it even possible, even with freepie emulating the supported IMUs.

Which stereoscopic 3D solution do you primarily use?: Head Mounted Display (HMD)

I don't have a hydra anymore, so forgive me if this has already been implemented:

It could be nice if the head tracking and the hydra, left hand, could be used to determine that you are running in place and swinging your arm, if the speed at which you're doing that could be translated to the game space, the direction still determined with the direction pad (but you would still lean your body a few degrees and it would feel more natural), if jumping was a button coupled with standing on your toes, if dodging was similar.

So the motion detection doesn't have to be very accurate and the button approach doesn't have to be abandoned, as the controls were a combination of the two, the gamer is incouraged to accomodate the game avatars movements, increasing immersion, the button pressing increases precision. I bet it could feel natural pretty quickly.

May not be so good with a hydra and a dk2 but with a stem and a cv1/crescent bay, the volume of positional tracking space should permit a standing in place experience with these kind of controls.

Yeh I get the same error as that :(
What's the best way of recreating the gun tracking for other games through using glovepie or freepie?
I'd love to be able to augment my P99 Walther Wii controller with something alot more accurate like the hillcrest or better?

I have tried using glovepie which can be seen in my youtube video

But I'd like to have a much better solution which I can mount on the gun etc...
Anyone have some ideas how to achieve this? :)

I tried this mod v1.4 with Oculus CV1, however I'm unable to activate VR mode.
This is caused by the fact that extended mode is not supported on the Oculus CV1.
The -forcevr and -vr launch parameters do not seem to work, it says That the Source Base 2013 Singleplayer does not support Virtual Reality.

So I tried to boot it with vorpx, which enabled headtracking ok, however the mouse still controls the camera.
I want the mouse to control the gun.

Can you make it so that you can always enable the vr mode?
(so without detecting if there is a headset connected)
In that case the mouse should just map on the gun.

(I guess that oculus headtracking won't work in that case, but I can create some script that maps the oculus movement to hillcrest tracking)
