TrackIR not responsive with P3D Viewgroups

Post by twodogzz » Mon Jun 08, 2020 3:09 am

I use Viewgroups to configure the P3D display over 4 monitors. This works well, particularly with the virtual cockpit allowing me to experience about 130°horizontal and 45° vertical view angles.

However, when Viewgroups is used in conjunction with TrackIR v5, head tracking is ignored by P3D if View00 is inactive, that is I've selected another screen/view by clicking on the screen. The head tracking only returns if I click on the screen with View00, thereby activating the view.

Is this normal operation for Viewgroups views and TrackIR or is there something that I can do to?
I've added some images to explain the menus I'm talking about.

View Menu with Views at bottom of options - View00 Active

Change View Menu showing 4 available Cockpit views

My software...
TrackIR v5.4.2.27545 (latest v5 build)
P3Dv4.5.13.32.97 (latest v4.5 build)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit version 1909 build 18363.836 (all updates are current)

As I don't know if this is a ChasePlane, P3D, or TrackIR issue, so I've asked the same question on these other forums too.

Cheers,
Wayne
