Disable TrackIR in external views (FSX)

Post by dswo » Sun Feb 25, 2007 10:10 am

As of this morning, there's an external utility that can do this:

http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=98393

Would it be possible to include this functionality in the next driver update?

Perhaps they could add this to the "Free Game Demos and Utilities" Page.

You could always pause the TrackIR using the pause hotkey. By default the pause key is F9.

Hello,

I am the author of this utility. You can download it for free here :
http://library.avsim.net/search.php?Sea ... CatID=root

It is a separate program which does other things too.
... It will be difficult to include it into your driver.
But the idea behind the activation/deactivation of track-ir is very simple.

You have to register with AVSIM to use their library.

It might be easier if you just send them the file.

To NaturalPoint Team :
I asked for a copy of the file, so we can look at it and possiblely post it.
1. "... possiblely post it" :

Sorry, I limited the distribution of my program to
- My website http://jacky.brouze.ch (sorry it is in french. I will translate it as soon as you translate yours to french - google translation is a pity)
- Avsim.com
- FlightSim.com
for ease of update purposes. So you will not be allowed to make it available elsewhere.
Yes, You have to register on Avsim to get a file, but it is free. Thousands of people have done it, I wonder why you couldn't.

2. BASICALLY :

- Suspending Track-IR in external view is a wish that several users asked for since october 2006.
- You always told us that this was impossible to do without changing FSX software
- I have done it, without painful trick, just using the FSX SDK and SimConnect and without hacking neither your software nor FSX
- I think that you should now implement the same thing into your standard software
- I am ready to discuss with you about the way to program it
