Cannot use T-IR 5 in P3D after flying in VR

I have been using RiftCat, Vridge, Steam VR, and Flyinside to fly in P3D in VR. Today I fired up T-IR, centered it and paused it as usual, opened P3D without using any of the VR programs, and oculus rift and steam VR kept coming up, and I kept closing them. I was able to fly just fine but T-IR was n...

Track IR 5, OC'd to 4.2GHz, 55" HDTV, FSX

That is a dream combination for flight simulation.

But without Track IR I wouldn't care for any of it.

I must admit though, on the new 55" HDTV FSX is a new animal, virtual cockpit is close to life size.

Re: Camera Placement on 55" TV? Solved

Duh, my tower is to the left of my desk and TV, so I tried placing the stand I built with the camera just off the left of the screen and viola, it works perfectly and the whole screen is clear. Perfect. The next thing I was going to try was mounting the camera on a mic stand behind me, wearing my ca...

Re: Camera Placement on 55" TV?

Placing the camera at the bottom of the screen was way too low.

Tilting the hat mount up or down decreases the accuracy of head tracking.

Camera Placement on 55" TV? Solved

I was able to place camera on top of 32" TV and it was fine, but just upgraded to a 55" TV and it is way too high to pick up head movements. My work around was to use a pipe flange as a base with a 14" wooden dowel rod inserted into it, then the camera is attached with velcro on top of the dowel. I ...

Re: TrackIR 5 issues using Seth's Flight profile

Try this:

Re: TrackIR5 Flight Simulator X

The fail proof way I've found is to shut down FSX first, then maximize the TR-5 window, make sure it is paused then click on the X in the top right corner, it then shuts down every time.

Re: Very bad TIR stutter

Try raising your frame rates, I set mine to 60 FPS, much less than that and mine stutters, but at 60 fps it is smooth as glass.
