You have to install TrackIR and run it in the background for it to work.

As simple as that!

TrackIR serves as a detection hook for TrackHat and will not detect any devices. TrackHat is where the action is.

1: Install TrackIR (Don't run it)

2: Run ChasePlane

3: Run TrackHat

4: Run TrackIR

 

ChasePlane has to be Enabled during and after this process

Keven,

Brilliant!! It worked!! Thank you - Chase Plane is just about perfect with Trackir/opentrack now working. I don't know if it will help anyone else but here's what I did (I'm using opentrack with a custom built head tracking clip - just like Trackhat).

1. Downloaded TrackIR v5

2. Started TrackIr (minimised to Task Bar)

3. Started Opentrack (Under "Game Detection" Executable = ChasePlane.exe / Profile = FSFX.ini)

4. In my case started Prepar3d (Chase Plane is primed to start with Prepar3d, which in turn is primed to start FSFX.ini)

I hope this helps and isn't too confusing!

Thanks once again Keven

Hi Garry,

Click on the arrow to the left of the word "Profile" on the main Opentrack screen, then choose from the drop-down menu "Create new copied config" and for the "New File Name" type "FSFX.ini". Then click on "Options" (again on the main opentrack screen) then choose "Game Detection" and add (+ sign) a new entry and under Executable type "ChasePlane.exe"  and under Profile type "FSFX.ini". Hope this helps.

 I know that the version of Opentrack used with Trackhat has been specifically adapted/modified by the developer and is a bit different to the "normal" version but if you have any further probs, I'll try to help (though I'm by no means an expert).

Good evening,

 

I'm using Trackhat with Opentrack and a PS3 cam. Can anyone confirm that they have managed to get it to work with Chaseplane, other then to use the Globally enable switch to toggle between Chaseplane and Opentrack?

 

Cheers!

The latest Chaseplane version allows using the Trackhat, but you need to install Opentrack  (not via the Trackhat download). Enjoy!

boing to the top, I have some weird problems with OpenTrack, so is there any progress on getting Chaseplane to work natively?

Yes it works. However NOT with the Opentrack version that is suggested on the Trackhat site.

I am confused a bit now. I have a TrackIR camera and use TrackIR 5 with a TrackHat attached to my headset. This works perfectly without Opentrack in P3D latest version. I love ChasePlane and want to use it with my TrackIR setup. When I loaded ChasePlane and set a Pilot view internal camera setting for my A2A Cherokee, I thought that I was set. I had ChasePlane set to open with P3D starting.

I started AS 16, started P3D, everything looked good but no tracking ability. Opened TrackIR but it would not open and gave a Windows error and shut down. Closed all programs to attempt to start TrackIR to test it. From that point I attempted to open TrackIR with all other programs closed but it continued with the same Windows error message for days. Event Viewer showed a nvoglv32.DLL problem. Eventually it has allowed TrackIR to come back on its own! 

I have deleted ChasePlane and after several reloads of TrackIR now have TrackIR working as before in P3D, but I miss my ChasePlane camera setting. Can anyone provide me with the "Idiots Guide to TrackIR/Trackhat/ChasePlane setup in P3D? Not a complete computer idiot but not far off.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Rick

I can no longer get Trackhat with Opentrack to work with Chaseplane with Global Enable active.
