    yes, annoying!
  3. yes, indeed. But that's what you need if you want the same head movement to translate in less movement of the mouse pointer. It's easier and more important to achieve this near the vertical center of the monitor as to it's edges. There are clearly limits.. to keep this as you like, just leave the left / right outer points on the curve as is, and concentrate on the 'inner' points. You're need to adjust is different if you 'only' want to look around, or if you need to operate buttons / switches in the VC. One ChasePlane Camera to fit all will most likely not work. For example, if you are the captain and want to operate switches at the upper part of the overhead panel.. you'll most likely need to setup a second CP-camera to look at the center of the overhead if you have TiR centered as well.. And if you want to operate the (M)CDU, it's probably a good idea to setup a dedicated CP-camera preset for this, and disable TiR for that preset. You can enable / disable TiR per CP camera preset, which makes CP + TiR a powerful combination. I sometimes just have the same CP preset twice. One with TiR enabled, the second with TiR disabled.
  4. If you haven't enabled Precision mode (F7) in TrackIR, try this. This is essential. or further tune (bring them down) the curves near the horizontal centerline. Make sure you have disabled / reduced the artificial camera movements in ChasePlane. I use TrackIR for years now..and no issues .. Take your time to tune your setup. It's worth it.
  5. Hi Scott, strange. Might be that the SimConnect.xml is only required to handle connections from a remote machine in a networked environment. My last bet (and since you have it working in FSX): Simconnect comes in four different versions. It doesn't harm to have all four versions installed in parallel. In fact it's recommended by PMDG to avoid issues. So i would propose to install all 'simconnect.msi' from redist dir, i.e. ESPv1, FSX-RTM, FSX-SP1, FSX-SP2-XPACK (subdir retail\lib) I just reinstalled my P3D machine from scratch including all SimConnect versions. TrackIR worked out of the box without any issue (i have no FSX installed this time though, but that shouldn't impact) Regards, Joerg
  6. that's ok.. just noticed it's working in FSX you say? Assuming it's running on the same OS installation, simconnect configuration for P3D might not be complete could you check if you got a file 'SimConnect.xml' in %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\ ? if it's not there, copy the 'SimConnect.xml' from %APPDATA%\Microsoft\FSX\ to %APPDATA%\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v3\ and then report back..
  7. Hi Scott, do you have simconnect installed? Track IR won't work without, and it's not installed by default anymore during P3D setup. You'll find it in 'redist' in the P3D main folder. Cheers, Joerg P.S: blue lights? my lights are green as well
  8. Hello Klaus, what dou you expect to "see"? Would you expect some visuaI indication? I don't know but don't think there is a visual indication in RW when you pass the Tropopause (with Tropopause being the boundary layer between Troposphere and Stratosphere. Tropopause height varies between approx. 6km and 18km ) What in RW should be recognized though: In a climb above Tropopause, with increase in height, Static Air Temperature (SAT) won't further decrease but is supposed to remain almost constant. With even further climbs one would expect SAT to raise again. Not sure how ASN deals with Tropopause (i.e from where it derives the height of the Tropopause), but the effect of constant SAT above a certain height can be seen in the aloft data provided within ASN, and is expected to be fed into FSX/P3D. Joerg
  9. not exactly.. you need to balance your settings first to be able to reach more or less constantly the desired fps. Let's assume you've done that, and you're happy to reach more ore less constant 30fps.. here's my 'setup' to reach smooth 30fps. P3Dv2: - frames limited to 35 << that's my sweet spot. you might try various other settings here, and see if it makes a difference - v-sync on - TB unchecked NVidia Inspector: - Vertcal Sync : Use the 3D application setting DXtory: - limit: 30 fps I found the best smoothness if the external limiter is set to one of the adaptive v-sync refresh rates, i.e 60, 30, 20, 15 Hope that helps...
  10. I am an Nviida user an have tested the NI limiter. I found the NI limiter to make no difference whether on or off. Not sure at the moment if it worked at all. So, not the sane results, at least for me.
  11. yep.. tested that beforehand.. but it didn't make any difference for me. I think it's a valid tip nevertheless. I'll give it at try in FSX lateron. Free CPU cycles are rare with FSX running, and TrackIR might benefit from a higher prio. I'd recommend to stick with the settings that gives you best results WITHOUT using DXtory. Without DXtory, i had the best results with the internal limit set to 35 fps & NI Vsync to 1/2 refresh rate. I kept that settings and use DXtory 'on top'. Increased smoothnes with banks, turns and head movements.
  12. Great find!!! Excellent results, indeed!! So far, P3D V2 turned into a microstuttering mess as soon i moved the head (TrackIR). Outstanding smoothness now.. :smile: internaly locked to 35 FPS (unlocked might give better results with certain AC) externaly locked to 30 FPS Hope it's not introducing CTD's, though.
  13. Robert, you're welcome. I see your 'problem'. (What a wonderful old desk). I've had to move my desk out of the way. It's now at the right hand of my setup. All is placed in a room where nobody bothers about the optical appearance..Two questions though from my side..- What's that program with the (moving?) map? Looks interesting..- The mountain on the photo in the background.. is this K2 (westface)?(quite offtopic but im curious)Regards,
  14. WOW! Alex, Welcome to the 3-screener club ;-) I'm a bit puzzled by the question how you setup the windows with the outside views, but anyway, nice to know that your HW is sufficient to drive this setup. You must push the PCI Bus to it's limits ;-)I just recognized that you live in wonderful BC. I hope to see Vancouver Island the next time i'll be there (3 years gone since my last visit to Whistler)Regards,
  15. Ryan,thanks a lot.I would never have spend that money without companies like PMDG. You're bringing Flightsimming to this extraordinary level.Thank you for this wonderful Aircraft!Regrads,
