TIR sdoes not differentiate between controllers?

Post by temp » Tue Mar 15, 2011 12:11 pm

Hi I have a TM Warthog and MFDs and a TIR 4 with version 5 software.
I am running WIndows 7 64bit.

If I assign a switch on my throttle to centre, such as "Joystick Button 3", then it is mirrored on my joystick when pressing what TIR thinks is "Joystick Button 3".

I also try assigning centre to the MFD, which TIR calls "Joystick Button 1", and then pressing the trigger on the joystick centres the view as well.

I think TIR is looking for Joystick Button 1 on ANY controller, and not the one you assigned it to.

Is there a way to fix this so TIR only honours the controller you assigned the function to? I do not want to use keystroke assignments as it will mean setting up Target to use in DCS.

I have this same issue. Is there a solution to this? I have TrackIR 5 but it is the same issue.

At the moment, I believe there is not. I have notified our development team of the issue for review for an upcoming release.

You could try little workaround with a program called JoyToKey. I use this to enable push-to-talk on my yoke with my IVAO-flights.

You could get it to work by assigning some keyboard-key to the center-function in TrackIR and then assign the joystick-button you want to send out that keyboard key as command when pressing the joystick-key from the JoyToKey-program. (simple? ;D) It should be pretty straight-forward program.
