  • Transitions can now be tuned per preset, you can even change their easing functions!
  • Manual control over the Cinematic Mode
  • Reworked In-Sim View Selector with better compatibility 3rd party mouse drivers and support for HiDPI displays
  • You can now set your own defaults for turbulence, controls and advanced options using the new contextual menu
  • You can now copy a specific setting to all your presets for the current aircraft using the new contextual menu
  • You can now directly search for specific controls assignments in the preferences
  • Possibility to reorder presets by entering the desired index
  • Option to automatically track the aircraft in Outside & Static views
  • Option to enable Gimbal stabilization

When I press my Middle mouse button and move my mouse the camera shakes all over the place. Also when I pan using the hat switch, as soon as I release it it shakes for a very brief moment

How to enable TrackIR?

Thanks for the update.

 

It is enabled by default. Update Games in TrackIR to get the required profile.

Mine won't update to 1.5...it's "stuck" at v0.1.91. Is there something I can do to move the program to 1.5?

Wow,

          Track IR is very smooth now that it's integrated into the program. All of my presets work. Awesome job guys.

Hi, i have a small question about trackir integration in chaseplane (exp version).

The 2 files in trackir folder, like simconnect.manifest and simconnectSP2.manifest they should be renamed to .manifest1 (or other, like in ezdok) or not?

 

Thanks

Gianluca

Is there a specific trackir profile that should be used?.Cant see chaseplane on list and there are no game profile updates available in trackir software, I'm using version 5.4.2.27545 of the trackir software.

 

Thanks

Is the turbulence just randomly generated or a reaction to actual turbulence conditions detected by AS16?

ChasePlane is profiled as FSFX in TrackIR (I know, we will try to have it changed)

breathing turbulence type is randomly generated, others are generated based on the aircraft's motion, wheel rotations, engine thrust and RPM. They are sometimes combined with oscillators to create non-existing data.

Does Chaseplane work around/prevent the annoying head movement VC bug that's plagued FSX forever? Where the camera lags and moves around as the aircraft yaws or turns at varying latitudes?

Do you need to rename the TIR manifest files to .OFF for chaseplane like you have to do for Opus, or do you leave them as is?

 

When enabling Chaseplane my Pilot view flashes - almost like there's a conflict with another setting.

Update:   Got everything working with Chaseplane.    Although I was a huge OpusFSI Camera  fan, I absolutely LOVE Chaseplane now.  It's so intuitive and easy to manage - there is no going back for me.   Well done guys.

I haven't been able to get my XBox controller to work for walkarounds.  Is there a specific way to enable it?

Kevin, got a minor issue with the new ChasePlane 1.5.  This behavior was not present in the previous Alpha builds.   I fly with three monitors.   My middle is the simulator and the other two are used for other things.   I have disabled the menu pop up with the middle mouse button as I like to hold down the middle mouse to pan around.     Sometimes now with 1.5 when I am panning the cursor will suddenly fling itself over to one of the other monitors on the simulator loses focus.   I have to move the mouse cursor back to the simulator window and left click to make it the focus again.    This behavior did not happen in previous alpha builds.    Minor but annoying.

This is a known issue, you can see the list of known issue in ChasePlane in the lower-left corner of the interface.
