Connects to trackir, but not working in p3d v4

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've been using chaseplane in p3d v3 with no issues for a while now. Just upgraded to p3d v4, and I can't get chaseplane to work.

Chaseplane connects to trackir with no issues (I see FSFX in trackir, so the program is being detected), but once in the sim, there's no tracking.

I'm using v0.2.66 alpha exp. I also still have p3d v3 installed. I removed cameras.cfg from the p3d v4 folder in appdata and restarted the sim. I also reinstalled simconnect.

Anything else I can try?

Hey Keven,

The update seems to have fixed my issue. On startup it complained about a corrupt p3d config file, so it must have fixed something I guess.

Thanks!

I only installed the SimConnect from "redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK" and I have no problem with TrackIR or other software.

This also immediately solved my problem of Track IR 5 not connecting with P3d v4.
The path to get there is:
Prepar3d v4 / redist / Interface / FSX-SP2-XPACK / retail / lib
then click execute the file: SimConnect.exe
 
and BINGO, it worked.
