Trackhat,trackir and ChasePlane

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

was wondering if=- anyone on here has managed to get The track hat working with ChasePlane yet

 

James over at the trackhat website has said if you download trackir and use it with trackhat and chase plane it will work but unless i am missing something there is no options available within the trackir software the camera tab is greyed out so wont recognize anything

 

Thanks

Hi

Garry, my wireless TrackHat is working fine with ChasePlane and P3D on my system. I'm using that with the TrackIR camera. Note that FSFX should be selected in the "Title" tab. (Download the current 'games' file from Natural Point if you don't see the FSFX option).

 

Are you using Natural Point's current TrackIR version 5.4 software? Is the usual TrackIR screen working and resetting using the F12 key as usual, before loading the sim? If that's working ok while using your TrackHat then it should work with FSX / P3D (or any other TrackIR-enabled sim) as well.

 

I've found that on occasion the selected VC or outside view doesn't load correctly at first, but hitting F12 usually corrects that. If not restarting ChasePlane does.

Trackhat is in contact with us, they sent us the hardware and we'll investigate as soon as we have everything to test the system

Was just wondering if there's any progress with Trackhat compatibility - I'm using opentrack and, like garrymol, utilising the work around. Also, many thanks for what is a very impressive programme.

I have finally managed to get my Trackhat to work with CP today. Download Opentrack using the following link (NOT the Trackhat one)

https://github.com/opentrack/opentrack/releases

This requires some playing around with the settings, but it works! I do find it a bit disappointing that Trackhat is still not up to speed with this.

Enjoy,

Vincent
