Re: TrackIR for Linux

I think this topic needs to be brought back up. I've owned a trackir 5 since they first came out. Several years ago I switched to linux as my main and only os, and found linuxtrack. It allowed me to continue to use my trackir. However linuxtrack development has stopped, and it no longer works with n...

Re: TrackIR software 5.1 beta 3 now available - Updated

Just upgraded from 5.0 to 5.1 b3, and love it. Under XP64, I no longer have the issue of exiting trackir, but the camera does not shut down. Now it all shuts down instantly. Tracking seems to be improved as well. Keep up the good work! (Using Trackir 5)

Re: Fsx not recognising TrackIR5

<t>I've run into a similar issue. I keep my games on a separate drive from my os. If I have to reinstall my os, trackir will no longer work with FSX until I reinstall it from scratch. Games like IL2 can be reused over and over, just not fsx. Seems to be the only game that trackir only sees it if it ...

Re: Oh o Seth another problem..

<r>Do you have the proper aaa unified installer, or the latest 6dof_tracker_2_0_sHr patch applied to your install? Have you tried to mix 4.09 final and 1.1 unified installer on the same install? Doesn't work. If you have specific questions, I am a member of the Canvas Knights development team for IL...

Re: IR5 Installed anbut keeps crashing?

<t>I think by latest directx, he means do you have the August 2009 update. 9.0c has been around for years, but it is being updated all the time. Newest video drivers require the updated directx. Go to microsoft and get the update. The dinput8.dll error is a directx error, likely because yours is out...

Re: Help to activate trackir in games!

If your running it under vista/win7, run both the trackir software and the game with admin privileges. I just set the exe properties to always run in admin mode. I run both xp64 and win7 64, and the admin thing isn't needed under xp.

Re: mouse emulator/maptracker help

I have a trackir5 as well, same issue with mouselook in games. The version 4 mouse emulator seems to work much better, try that.

Re: Track IR 5 Microstuttering

<t>FSX is a weird bird, there are settings no one tells you, but must be set! Make sure to go to settings, customize, and set target frame rate from default 30fps to 60fps. Will make a big difference! Don't go over. If you have a lesser video card, 9800gt or under, use 50fps. Shouldn't tear anymore....

Re: Help to activate trackir in games!

I will highly recommend this product from now on. My only beef is not being able to add a new app and point to a game .exe. Unless I'm missing something?
