FS9 doesn't see Track IR + vector

Post by james8gy » Sat Oct 29, 2005 8:04 am

I just installed Track IR Pro with Vector expansion and downloaded latest (beta) driver, version 4.1 build 28. It looks as though it's supposed to be a "no brainer". Start Vector, calibrate, start FS9.1 in VC? No. She don't work. The green led is on and it's tracking according to the Tracking view. I am using a triple monitor setup with a Parhelia 256mb graphics card. Any Ideas please ?

I just installed the new 28 beta and I could not get FS9 to run the trackir at all.

I tried re installing and nothing seemed to work.

I went back to the 27beta and now FS9 trackir works great again.

Unless I'm missing something,, its the 28 software thats having trouble with FS9???

Thanks. It's good to talk. I removed 28 and installed 27 and it works fine. It's the first time I've used it and it makes you kind of careful how much you turn your head when you walk out of the room. A bit of a learning curve I should think but it's about as intuitive as it gets. I just hope when I fly in my real aeroplane, I don't resort to swivelling my eyes for a sideways view or expect to see behind me by lifting my head. Now that would be cool. Cheers, Jim.

Yes there is a bug in beta version build 28. Remove that and install 27 and it will be fine. We will have that bug fixed in 28 hopefully today.

No tracking in FS9 with 4.1.28 beta. The bug is still there. I think 4.1.28 should be removed from download page with such serious bug (even if it's marked as beta).

It's called a beta for a reason... use at your own risk. If you do not like taking chances there is always the official version as well. Thank you for trying the beta!

The issue has been resolved. What is happening when you play FS9? And you are running the official build 28 currently?
