Track IR 5 and X-Plane 10....

Recommended Posts

On my 50th anniversary a friend sent me his TIR5, which he claimed wasn't using for quite a long while.

 

For me, TIR turned out to be the day from the night when it comes to online MP air combats in IL2 BoS, and also in DCS and Rise of Flight, but I soon found that it also worked beautifully with CondorSoaring and X-Plane, although in XP10 I can get "out" of the cockpit limits using TIR.

 

Any available worth the try profiles for TIR5 and XP10?  I am using it without any other pluggin in between. Is any pluggin required for a better experience?

 

Any suggestions really appreciated :-)

So I got that running.  Jerky as all heck....  Plus it apparently won't work if you go outside the cockpit - you have to reenable it?

 

My custom Tir5 profile is a lot better in the smoothness department.  But mine doesn't let me rotate my head and I easily go outside the cockpit...

 

Anyone made a custom profile for this pilotview thing they can share?  I typically fly GA planes in XP.

Not yet, but I am using the same I use for IL2 Sturmovik and DCS, and Condor. It's called "Requiem 6 DOF".

I use it all the time, but you can go outside the cockpit.  Just make sure you have a convenient button to program for your "center" function and you will be ok.

 

I tried Pilot View - too complicated!

I was thinking about getting TIR5. Does it not work correctly in Xplane-10 ? Why do you need a plugin ?

Actually I find it to work correctly, even with any of the default profiles that are installed with the 5.2.2 version of the software.

 

I am using a profile I downloaded for IL2 Battle of Stalingrad and Rise of Flight, and I have another one for DCS World. All of these also suite X-Plane 10, and Condorsoaring perfectly.

 

There is really no problem with the fact of being able to transpose the limits of the cabin to the outside, and, although not realistic, can be fun and useful, specially for taking shots :-)

I installed X-plane 10 US Community edition right out of the box and TIR5 was working OK.

 

But after updating to 10.25 after online check TIR5 does not work any more even though it is checked/enabled in the settings -> equipment.

 

I can use mouse right double click to move around.\

 

I have tried updating TIR5 to the latest drivers, games updates etc, tried run as admin (both Xplane and TIR5), SHIFT+0, CTR+0 etc etc..

 

What am i missing here? Thanks!

TrackIR should be running before you start XPX. This is the only thing I can think of as mine was working fine with 10.25 and works correctly with 10.30.3
