Track IR3 'zoom' feature

Post by Colaris » Tue Oct 07, 2014 11:51 am

I have seen some ingame footage of Il-2 Sturmovik where the player zooms in on their view by simply moving towards their TrackIR unit. How is this acheived as it does not work for me?

Hi Colaris,

You can do this with a TrackIR 3 if you had the Vector expansion located here:

I seem to already have all the equipment in the Vector Expansion kit and yet it still acts as a regular TrackIR.(?)

Hi Colaris,

This should get you going:

Let me know if you can't find your vector license. We can look it up if you submit a ticket at help.naturalpoint.com.

Thank you.

I should add that the feature DOES work within the TrackIR software but not in the particular software I want to use it in. I am trying to get it to work in Il2-Sturmovik.

Colaris,

Do all other features work within IL2? For example, do the pause and center functions work? Does it also track in all other dimensions?

Thanks.


It tracks left, right, up and down fine. Not sure what you mean by the pause and center functions, sorry.

Colaris,

The pause and center functions should be present in the game. Pause allows you to temporarily disable the TrackIR by pressing F9 (default). Center allows you to do a quick calibration to center point without having to exit the game or simulation, F12 (default). Are these working as well, or is it just the zoom feature that isn't working?
