Re: TIR software doesn't select TrackClip Pro on startup

<t>A quick update: I checked the modified date on my settings.xml file and it was set to something like October of last year. Odd, since I use this software (and have to re-set the trackclip pro option) daily. Another weird thing was that the checkbox for launch when Windows starts was unchecked, bu...

Re: TIR software doesn't select TrackClip Pro on startup

I'll have a look, Mike. I hadn't noticed before.

TIR software doesn't select TrackClip Pro on startup

<t>I'm having a small problem on a new rig I built. I've got a TIR 5 w/a TrackClip Pro, and the TIR5 software starts up on loading windows. The problem is that when it starts, the software is set to a hat clip instead of the TrackClip Pro, and I have to remember to go into the control panel and rese...

TrackIR 3 not responding in FSX

<t>I've got a problem that just cropped up, and I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting it. I have a TrackIR 3 Pro unit, TrackClip Pro, and the 4.1.036 version of the TrackIR software. When I start FSX, the blue light on the unit comes on, as does the green LED once the TrackClip is in front of...

Re: X-Plane v9.0 Trackir support

There's a tickbox for enabling TIR support in X-Plane 9.0 (beta 13), but it doesn't seem to work. I don't get a blue light under my TIR 3 unit, so it looks as though the software doesn't recognize this version of X-Plane.

Re: Update on Lag Prob

You could try increasing the "Set Priority" for the TrackIR software, within the Task Manager -> Processes Tab -> Right click on the TrackIR.exe file -> Set Priority to AboveNormal.... See if that helps..... I tried following your suggestion tonight, Vincent. It worked! Bumping up TIR's priority to...

Re: Update on Lag Prob

<t>This is just a tweak, to try and get someone's attention here again. Have we had any progress on figuring out why the lag problem is still happening in FSX SP1? It's starting to become more prevalent on my sim, and is really killing the enjoyment of TrackIR. I've heard that problems with TCP/IP a...

Re: Update on Lag Prob

I think that SP1, for FSX, will help out; and thanks for the update. I will add it to my list of FSX tools..... I'm still getting random lags with SP1. It seems to happen primarily with addon aircraft that are complex and taxing to the system. The Wings of Power II B-17 is a prime culprit, as are t...

Re: Jittery tracking in one specific area

Let me know if this helps.
Yep, I wiped down the reflectors with soapy water, and now they track like a champ! Thanks, Vincent, that saved me some money I don't have right now.
