Block TrackIR5.1 window from going to system tray

Post by yoyogliderpilot » Wed Jan 25, 2012 6:05 pm

How can I block TrackIR5.1 window from going to system tray when I start a sim.
TrackIR4 stayed on my second screen as I prefer it, especially when setting up profiles and tracking problems...

Hello -

If you click on the circle icon in the top left corner, and select "options", you can turn off minimizing. Keep in mind, however, that the program minimizes to reduce the burden of rendering the 3d environment for the heads up display, so it's not recommended that you have it running along side a game.

Hi Mike,

I already had turned off minimizing in options, but it still goes to the systray when I enter a sim.
Is this a bug..? I'm running Windows 7 64bit.

I'll keep in mind what you said about the burden of rendering, but in a new game and things don't work as planned I like to see what's going on. Shortcut status, 3d headtracking etc.

I'm currently simming in Condor and Rise of Flight. With Rise of Flight TrackIR centrered to a left-up view and I really didn't know what was going on. And then I like to see the TrackIR window, but I can't. It goes to systray and I can't get it out of there while running Rise of Flight.

So, for the moment, I dumped Rise of Flight...
