Re: TrackIR vs VR

If I could use my Oculus Rift headset without the display to drive the view of the normal screen the way TrackIR does, I would. In terms of cost-effectiveness, the Oculus includes a full display and headphones integrated into the tracking system that includes two sensors for $400. This makes the $17...

Re: TrackIR vs VR

There isn't a TrackIR profile that can fix the problems that I have with TrackIR. The tracking limits and drift are dreadful in comparison to what VR headsets have demonstrated. And no amount of profile settings or software trickery can overcome the fact that TrackIR has to use some high gain betwee...

TrackIR vs VR

I am a long time user of TrackIR. I originally had TrackIR3, upgraded it to use Vector, got TrackIR4 Pro, and finally TrackIR5 Pro. My principal use has been for flight sims (Aces High, Strike Fighters series, DCS World, FSX, etc.) but I have also used it for the ArmA series, Train Simulator, and an...

Re: TS2015 will support TIR soon

It was about time! TrackIR was a natural choice for this game. I don't know why they took so long to support it. It pretty much works as it should. But you can tell they weren't really prepared for the flexibility of the view location/direction by what the view looks like when you lean out the windo...

Re: TrackIR Error.

I just built a new PC and My TrackIR 4 with the 5.1.3 software was working fine... then all of a sudden I start getting this same "TrackIR 5.0 Error" dialog box and the software shuts down.

Oops.. this is the AMD Catalyst driver "triple buffering" error... false alarm.

Re: Rail Simulator

This title is just begging for TIR support!
My 2-1/2 year old has fun using the arrow keys to pan and zoom... but I am spoiled. Give me TIR4 with full vector support in Rail Simulator... please!

Re: Strange movement but good tracking.

<t>New information:<br/> I did observe gauges twitching outside of game.<br/> So, I adjusted smoothing from the default 30 for combat flight profile to 40.<br/> Appears to be working well again.<br/> Since the same symptoms appeared on different PCs, I would say something in the hardware has degrade...

Re: Strange movement but good tracking.

I was wrong, the problem has returned. Apparently it is intermittent hardware failure on the verge of dying altogether... or it is a problem with build 30 and my system since it seems to work fine with build 28 and build 29.
