TrackIR 5 crashes FSX almost every time.

Post by Eagle33 » Mon Aug 12, 2013 2:24 pm

I bought Track IR 5 in July and it's a great device, I love it but it crashes FSX almost every time I use it.
I get Simconnect errors, it will freeze FSX in mid flight and I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL to get to the desktop and shut down FSX. Track IR driver: 2.50.0.0 per the Driver tab of Device Manager. I was told that it was because of the 6DOF and the amount of processing it has to do. Please advise.

My specs:

i7 920 D0 Quad 2.66 GHz 8 MB clocked to 4.0 GHz
ASUS P6T Deluxe
6 GB DDR3 1600 mushkin REDLINE Triple channel RAM
Cooler Master V8
NVIDIA GeForce 670 FTW
Driver NVIDIA 314.22
Samsung SyncMaster S27A550H
Thermaltake V9 VJ4000 case
OCZ 800 PSU
Win 7 x64 Home Premium running on a VRAP 300 GB
630 GB WD for backups.
FSX on 120 GB Intel SSD

Hello,

Have you tried the TrackIR with other games? Is it only crashing FSX? Are you using any other peripherals or 3rd party addons?

Best Regards,

Hi, thanks for responding. I use Track IR 5 only for FSX as I have no other games.

I do have some add-ons but everything was fine till TIR. My system is very tuned for FSX with the help of a software engineer.

People have told me the 6DOF and PBY can overwhelm FSX and cause out of memory errors. FSX runs fine without TIR however.

Hello,

Could you please try without any addons? Some addons may interfere with TrackIR.

Hi Dustin, that's what I've been doing for the last three days, 18 hours a day.

Long way to go.

Thanks.
