Anyone able to get TrackIr working in FSX

Recommended Posts

Guest ryebred

I just installed FSX which I obtained at my local Best Buy in San Jose, California and noticed that Track IR didn't work out the box. So, I went to the Naturalpoint website and downloaded the FSX Beta 3 drivers and it still did not work. Before I give up and wait until they release the official full version drivers, has anyone had any success getting Track IR to work in FSX? It is so hard to fly having to scroll my view around with my hat switch. hehRyan

Naturalpoint will be releasing the config files any time now. You need them for the device to recognize the game.Dave

Yes, we are wanting on a release copy of FSX here, so we can rebuild the driver files. Hopefully shouldn't take to much time to do. It's now just a matter of getting the software into the developer's hands.I will get them posted as soon as possible, as I want to "test" it out as well. ;)

You mean with all the free copies MS have been sending out to people, they didn't send one simple copy to you, a major generic component of the FSX experience?! Someone's brain must have been on holiday.

Nope the drivers currently listed only work for the Beta software, not the final copy version.

Ok, I hear that you all might enjoy new drivers for FSX RTM and TrackIR.......... I've just released drivers to our website with support for FSX - retail version. They can be found here. http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/06-sup...nd-manuals.htmlOr downloaded directly from the following link.http://media.naturalpoint.com/software/Tra...29.alpha.03.exeand now sit back and enjoy the flight.

I got the trackir 4 working with the beta. I had to download a fsx trackir zip file, and extract the files into the trackir install directoery, overwriting the latest trackir driver files. The went to update(in the trackir software)and it worked. I just followed the directions, and it worked for me. It took me acouple of times though to figure out that I had to download a zip file specefic to get the trackir working with fsx.

Hello Vince,basically my TrackIR 4 works well with the Build 29 Alpha 3. Nice experience in FSX! :)Some issues I discovered:- when entering the plane, I always look straight down and have to re-center using F12. Same applies if I look down during flight - the view is then centered down and locked there, only way to get back to front view is pressing F12 again.- the spot plane view can only be changed using the TrackIR if the TrackIR is active - this is somewhat annoying, being able to change the spot direction 'the usual way' while being able to use TrackIR in the cockpit would be a lot better!Besides that minor issues, TrackIR proves again as an ideal addition to FSX - especially for the 3D cockpit fans like me!
