Playing Eye Gaze Games Using an Irisbond Duo or Hiru Eye Gaze Camera on Windows w/ EasyClick ‘Beginner’ https://www.eyegazegames.com

The Eye Gaze Games website has been created to work with a wide range of eye gaze cameras, when both the camera and website have been set up correctly to work together. 

 In this video, we will look at how to use the Irisbond Duo eye gaze camera with its EasyClick Beginner software to play games on eyegazegames.com. We have a separate video on using its ‘Pro’ software on the site. 

The website works when you are using your eye gaze camera to control the mouse cursor position. Depending on your eye gaze camera, you may have options to play games in different ways, such as using a centralised Dwell on buttons or for more direct and immersive controls, for instance. 

With the Irisbond Duo camera’s EasyClick Beginner software, you have constant control over the mouse cursor position, which means you have a few options for how you can choose to play the games.   

When using the EasyClick software in Beginner mode, you move your eyes to move the mouse cursor around the screen and the cursor icon will follow your gaze. You can look at the buttons onscreen to hover the mouse cursor over them and then use the EasyClick software to left click and select these, such as using Dwell, Blink or Switch. 

 Or you can choose to use the Eye Gaze Games website’s own in-built Dwell, which has the advantage of being centralised on the onscreen buttons, that can help keep your eyes on target. You can find this option in the eye gaze settings on the site. If using this feature, just turn off the Dwell Click option in the easy click software, so you are just using EasyClick to control the mouse cursor and not the clicks.   

With the EasyClick Beginner software, you can interact with the website and many of the games using both Classic or Precise control modes; two options you can find in the Eye Gaze settings on the Eye Gaze Games site. Often the Precise mode will allow you to select smaller targets to interact more directly with games, whilst Classic gives you larger onscreen buttons. For the 3D games, such as Open Drive, Eye Drive and Gazey Golf, Precise mode will also let you play more directly, whilst changing the style of gameplay quite considerably.  

For instance, when using Precise mode in Open Drive, the vehicle will follow your gaze as you move the mouse cursor. If playing in Classic mode, you will instead have onscreen buttons to select to steer the vehicle.  

If using Precise mode, you may find that adjusting the Smoothing in the settings in the EasyClick Beginner software, helps to make the steering feel more responsive and easier to control. Choosing Very Low is the most responsive when you move your gaze, making the vehicle feel like it is turning quicker. You can also check the Options within the different games to see what settings can be changed for controls and gameplay too.
