With Love from Russian pilots

Post by ROSS_ANGEL » Thu Nov 21, 2002 1:02 am

Hi dear friends! I've got some problems with TrackIR.
I'm IL2 and MFS pilot .
The problem is, that while using trakIR, the CPU usage grows 8-10% per every 30min of using it.

The Hardware configurations is as follows:

AMD Athlon 2200XP+ 512 DDR 400
Geforce 4 TI4400 128 DDR SDRAM
OS WinXP



We've tried to solve this problem and came to conclusion, that while using trakIR the number of handles (allocated by process of Windows Task Manager, naturalpoint.exe) grows, and that fact keeps CPU more busy in time and FPS in the games are climbing down.
The point is the numbers of handles are climbing up in one point per second if TrackIR doesn't work (not activated) and the greenlight not indicated.
But when I touch my ring and trackIR is going to be activated with its greenlight, the number of handles stays at level.
Another proplem I have is Windows Task Manager can't shut down the trakIR's process in the operation system.
It closes only interface of the software.
But the hardware configurations with Pentium processor doesn't have this problems. It's only for AMD processors I mean :-(
So we think that's problem of software.

the drivers version is 1.22gx

I agree with this issue.

I�m having emense drop of framerate (10-20 fps) when having trackir on in Il-2 , just by flying the same mission with or without trackir.

Also is loading time of game (main- and missionload) slower.

any solutions on this ?

using 1.22 gx
amd xp 2000
asus a7v 256 ddr
GF ti4200
win 98se

We're not seeing the same frame rate hits on most installs, but I just wanted to let you guys know that we're working on the issue...

Hello:

I have heard of this problem from one other user and thought that it was an isolated case. I will get on it right away, probably Monday. So, you all agree that it only happens on an AMD machine with XP, or did one of you post that you are running Win98? And it only happens when it doesn't see a dot?

We are in the middle of a huge rewrite of the trackIR software, so it might take a bit of time to track it down, but we are on it.

i knew you were working on it...nice to hear.

with my spare knowledge of programming , i can only asume, (like already said above) that trackir maybe somehow "eats too many ressources" -whilst using with il-2 ?.
(or any other simm ?)
Anyway , it "seems" that if the green light does not burn (by putting a hand in front of it) ,il-2 "seems" to load a little bit faster...
...really dont know how to measure this issue pricecally.

thats all i can report.

asus a7v kt333 256 ddr
onboard sound
win98se

sorry ross . i�m old german guy.
callsign since warbirds (tm) days .. :-)

17:00 I turned on a computer and turned on the program TrakIR. Usage of the processor was 0-4%
17-10 I've left a house
22-00 I've come back home also I was beginning to use TrakIR. Usage of the processor was 90% when TrakIR sees the point.
What we can do? (
Or I must make a change of my ... AMD processor to IP?

We can not fly il2 and others with AMD procs:(
FPS climb down from 45 till 30 per every one hour using trakIR

But TrakIR is the best programm for viewing
Plz help us ASIP
