  1. Very good advice. Will do this in a few hours. Great suggestion! I have already downloaded Revo but hesitated because I had already uninstalled OpenTrack. Will follow your procedure.
  2. The GrassMonkey device is far, far away. Your point is on point. It was OpenTrack Software used by the GrassMonkey camera and headmount IR unit. To my best ability, there are no remaining bits of that software on my machine. I searched by name and found a few files bearing OpenTrack related names and after the Windows removal, I deleted those files. Will pick this up after some other tasks in our Guam afternoon time. Natural Point tech support is working with me now. THANKS!!
  3. I tried that some days back. No Change. Not sure what the GrassMonkey did but I removed the OpenTrack Application and then deleted any remaining folders or files with OpenTrack reference. The GrassMonkey device is miles away from my computer. 🥶 Proceeding with reinstallation later today. RMM
  4. I have Vsync on in the Nvidia Control Panel and also in X-Plane. Resolutions at "Recommended" 4k and Refresh at 60Hz. Natural Point tech support have my case now. We will start with a complete reinstallation of X-Plane and TrackIR.
  5. My Request : I would like to know the results of others who fly the C172 with REP or other GA Aircraft - also with X-Camera and TrackIR. It is dead easy to spot what I call Motion Blur. Just press and hold Left Arrow key following by Right Arrow key while looking the panel. Some bit of blur may be normal. But in the past whatever there was was not noticeable for me. Mine is extreme. Reply on the other thread in the X-Plane Forum, please.
  6. Agree. But not without some reason. I was helping a friend and I was assisting to design his home desktop sim from the computer choice, yoke etc. on up to X-Plane with REP etc. HeadTracking came along and TrackIR was not available anywhere I looked. The GrassMonkey with a new camera popped up at a substantial savings and had very convincing YT videos. We decided the GrassMonkey was a good choice. My friend's installation failed, so I got the device with the intent to test it on my simulation. Big Mistake. The GrassMonkey owner was fine for tech support but he offered only obvious quick fixes that we already had reviewed. It could not be the device??? Ultimately the GrassMonkey owner decided I was the problem and claimed that I "don't believe" and "don't listen". My friend is using his sim for IFR training. And his system is unaffected. Meanwhile my system was seriously corrupted. Sigh. Thanks again for taking time. I will soldier on. Getting some good suggestions but they all take time. RMM
  7. I got my first confirmation on the other thread in the MSFS forum that the blur I am getting is not normal. That is the re-assurance that I really needed. I believe the blur on YouTube videos only results from the lower sampling rate of the video grab. On YT the blur is minor. Mine is extreme. RMM
  8. FOR FURTHER REPLIES - Please hop over to the X-Plane forum. Thanks for all the support and re-assurance.
  9. I immediately downloaded Seth-Flight and Seth-FPS profiles. Most importantly .. regarding " never noticed a motion blur" - Thanks for that confirmation. What I have is lots and is very obvious and a strain on the eyes. I have looked at that settings using NVidia Control Panel and in Windows 10 Settings. Will continue to investigate. Something changed for sure. May require a fresh start with a new installation from the ground up.
  10. Gentlemen: Please make further replies on this topic in the X-Plane forum on AvSim. Will be better to have just one thread. Apologies for the duplication, but I was desperate for input. Thanks to everyone for the valuable suggestions. All of which I am taking up with due care and effort. Thanks again!!
  11. I really appreciate everyone's input and effort. Every suggestion gets my attention. I also have a bit of delay. The idea of a ground up re-installation is on my mind as well. I don't have many Plug-Ins so I just need to review why I added them and confirm that they are still needed. Fly with Lua / Data Ref Editor for example. Not critical to X-Plane and TrackIR for sure. Randall... Hope you recover quickly. I am home office and function by Zoom / Skype Screen Share / Email / Phone. Limits my risk. Let me repeat this from the above reply to Paul: I would like to know the results of others who fly the C172 with REP and also with X-Camera and TrackIR. It is dead easy to spot what I call Motion Blur. Just press and hold Left Arrow key followed by pressing and holding the Right Arrow key - go back and forth while looking the panel. Some bit of blur maybe normal. But in the past whatever there was was not noticeable for me. Thanks again!! RMM
  12. I hope that the "recurrent" post does not cause difficulty with the Moderators. If so, I request them to take appropriate action to close the MSFS thread and leave the X-Plane thread open. Been busy this morning. It is Monday here on Guam. Regarding GrassMonkey's failed installation, I did not exaggerate my choice of words. That installation caused my yoke to malfunction as well. Would not move at all to bank left. Just stuck in place at level. Right Aileron was ok. The onscreen view became unstable. Upon checking TrackIR, this motion blur arose for the first time. No combination of proven profiles from Natural Point's staff / Speed / Smooth gets me back where I was. I have uninstalled X-Camera and reinstalled. Removed any trace of GrassMonkey / Open Track. Rebooted along the way. I would like to know the results of others who fly the C172 with REP and also with X-Camera and TrackIR. It is dead easy to spot what I call Motion Blur.

  13. Thanks. I have joined the forum and made a first query. Awaiting any replies. The unit that corrupted my system was the GrassMonkey with the new IR USB Camera. Looks good on YT but for me a very unfortunate outcome. My friends system that did not have TrackIR was unaffected by the failed installation. The GrassMonkey owner and tech support ran out of patience and made disparaging personal criticisms. All his suggestions were things we carefully checked and tried multiple times. All my communications were factual and polite. He decided I was the problem that his solutions were not working. I have no idea what was wrong with the install. My system got corrupted. My friends installation worked but the tracking was useless and inaccurate to put it mildly. On my side, sure did the 100% uninstall, manual scan for any remaining folders, Glary Utilities scan of registry, reboot etc. Just could not not recover back to where things were. I will try the Win10 Display settings. Much appreciate the time and suggestions. RMM
  14. Hi Mark.. As Ark suggested I downloaded two profiles provided by Seth from Natural Point. I also made a video of my screen. Unfortunately, the video came out jumpy. The video actually presents closer to what I would be happy with instead of what I actually see. When I scan left or right the distant scenery is showing up jittery or blurry - leaving fuzzy duplicate images behind which then snap into focus. If I turn left/right/up/down looking at the instruments they all go blurry - leaving fuzzy duplicate images behind which then snap into focus. As I have proven profiles, that leaves the Speed and Smooth sliders. Definitely the different settings, and I tried lots of variations in both Speed and Smooth settings, make very recognizable changes. But I could not find the combination that I had for years before. Online videos show much less but maybe are showing less smooth images than is on the actual screen. I don't think my memory or my visual experience is inaccurate. I may have to either accept some eye strain or abandon TrackIR. Neither are good solutions. RMM
  15. Terrific. Will get that now. Somehow missed seeing the NaturalPoint Forum. An obvious oversight on my part. Definitely a valuable resource. THANKS!
