Little help for a born-again newb, please

I have installed TIR for the first time in three years and I'm a bit rusty. I downloaded a great profile for DCS but I'd like to adapt it a little and would welcome some advice. I think I must be sitting much further away from my large monitor than the profile's author so the scaling feels fast and ...

What does one green light instead of two mean in-game?

<t>I'm having a few teething problems with TIR 5 64x Beta and A-10 64x. I'm finding failures to be more common than usual although, to be fair to TIR, they are often linked to failures in the sim, i.e. when a mission crashes, TIR will not work again until the sim is restarted.<br/> <br/> I know to e...

Re: Problems getting TIR commands to work in the A-10 Beta

<t>OK, I fixed it but there are some hoops to jump through if you want to make TrackIR, A-10 and CH HOTAS (possibly other HOTAS setups, too) play nice together. Maybe this information will spare someone else from the teeth-grinding experience of figuring it out:<br/> <br/> - TIR5, like A-10, has to ...

Re: Problems getting TIR commands to work in the A-10 Beta

<t>It doesn't work, Vincent. I want to use a shifted key press in each case, but doing this in the TIR settings just enters the unshifted function for that button, which is already in use by the sim.<br/> <br/> EDIT: Still won't work. The sim just won't recognise TIR commands mapped via my CH HOTAS ...

Problems getting TIR commands to work in the A-10 Beta

<t>I'm probably missing something very simple here but here's my problem:<br/> <br/> TIR works beautifully in A-10 except that the Pause, Recenter and Precision functions do not work in-game. <br/> <br/> - I have tried running both programs (TIR and A-10) as Admin; no luck.<br/> <br/> - The commands...

Re: I tip my hat to TIR5...and not entirely in a good way

Well, I made a remarkable and somewhat ironic discovery this evening. The source of the tracking interference, the thing that had made my TIR5 so strangely precarious in its tracking and caused regular anomalies, the red object you can see in the screen shot below, was the silver fabric tab in the c...

Re: I tip my hat to TIR5...and not entirely in a good way

<t>Well, thanks again, Seth, I'd like to use TIR 5 to its full potential so I'm grateful for the opportunity to debug a little with you. I will send you a screenshot if the red dot reappears; it's mysterious, I have long accepted that I cannot use TIR during daylight hours -- my home office in Los A...

Re: I tip my hat to TIR5...and not entirely in a good way

<t>Very helpful, Seth, many thanks. Come to think of it, you've been helpful to me here since I bought my first TIR about six years ago!<br/> <br/> In camera view there were three green dots and one red one, which moved around with my head movement so I ruled out ambient light sources. The room was ...

I tip my hat to TIR5...and not entirely in a good way

I was setting up TIR with Black Shark last night and was distressed to find that, while tilting my head downwards the tracking would "tumble", i.e. lose track and then flit all over the place. The worst aspect of this is that recenter does not fix it; I had to take off the track cap and get the non-...
