V4 software view limit

Post by Skwabie » Wed Jan 23, 2013 5:03 pm

Hi,

I'm on trackir 4 with hat clip using lastest v4 driver. When flying Strike Fighters or Il2, looks like the v4 driver imposes a limit on the pitch/yaw axis, making it difficult to check 6 o'clock. especially in Il2 where the pitch axis is limited to 90 degrees only.

I know it's due to v4 software since when using v5 the limit is gone. but v5 is overly sensitively for me inducing nausea at times no matter how much i adjust the profile and settings.

so i wonder if there's a way to remove the limit for the v4 driver? there's a registry edit on the website for il2 but seems to only work for v3 and earlier versions.

There may be some limiting factor for yaw in the profile you are using in V4. Are you using one of the preset curves for yaw or a custom one?

You can also copy profiles from version 4 to version 5, but not the other way around. I personally find the UI for 5 to be much easier to use for profile editing.

It's a modified version from long time used falcon4.0 profile with custom settings. I copied it into my V5 "profile" folder and loaded it, launched il2 and there's no view limit. same one in V4 has the limit.
I did the same for Strike fighters 2 awhile back with the same symptom... Something else must be in play here...

I am still looking into the differences here and what may be causing your limit. I'll let you know when I know more.
