FSX + Track IR

Recommended Posts

Need help with a deadzone issue.... specifically in the vertical axisI've had TIR 5 since xmas and it's finally growing on me except some glaring issues. Why is it I can look down, almost straight down in my chair but I can't look up much higher than 35 degrees? Here's a shot from the L39, first, a normal view, and then the farthest tilt up I can use before the light on my TIR unit goes out (and it won't register my track clip pro)I'm using the profile found on the Naturalpoint forums entitled Seth - Flightfsscr000-52.jpgfsscr001-44.jpg

Launch the software, go to camera view, and observe what trackir camera see. For proper operation, all 3 points must be visible and green.If you are using track clip pro, try to rotate it a bit down. Profiles are not universal, it all depends on relative trackir position and distance to head, so what may suit someone's else, won't work for you.

Thanks for responding. It's odd, because when in the TIR console it appears that I am able to go up to 90 degrees pitch, but in the game I can't go much higher than 40 degrees. Would that be an issue with the profile?Here's a level camera pic, and then me looking up.... this is using the Track Clip Pro, I set it up as per the manual on my headsetfsscr000-53.jpgfsscr001-45.jpg

Trackir automatically loads different profiles for different games, do you have this profile enabled for FSX? It should be in the tab "Titles".

Yep it's set in there
You probably need to synch the screen and TrackIR. I do this by having a TrackIR reset + Panview reset keys mapped to one of my stick buttons. Mine are F12 for the TrackIR reset and Shift + Delete for the Pan View reset operation. I use a hat reflector and if I move my hat or rpelace it after a forced break then I have to resynch the view and Trackir. Make sure your are looking at the centre of the screen when you do this.Check the position of the three green lights in your trackIR setup software (Top right hand corner) they should be equally disposed about the centre point. You can adjust the trackIR receiver to achieve this.

Like John, I have a button on my stick mapped to the "Center" function of TrackIR4.When I want to look beyond the limits in any direction I simply look in the OPPOSITEdirection, momentarily, nhit the "Center" button then I am able to look "beyondthe limits".Look back to the center of the screen and hit the "Center" button again to getback to the normal view.These actions become second nature in no time at all.I also have the TrackIR4 "Pause" function mapped to a button. I find thisextremely helpful when I'm trying to "hit" one of those small clickspotsin the VC to operate a switch or tune a radio, etc.Pausing will also allow you to use your joystick hat switch to slew yourview in any direction. I do this if, for instance, I need to look downto my side to view or operate a control. ( provided the CameraDefinitionhas these mparameters set to "Swivel") SnapPbhAdjust = Swivel PanPbhAdjust = Swivel Paul

Note the eyepoint values in the aircraft.cfg file is the starting point for the view. Also make sure your chair height is set correctly.
