Hiya Seth,

Thanks for the reply ;)

I can't find this "limit" checkbox you allude to ... is this in the beta 4 software or a later version you're testing? Or do I need to go and get my eyes tested?! ;) (Actually I really do.)

Cheers

Nutty

Hmmm... it might be that it's not in the most current public build. I typically use our internal daily revs, and I know that it's in what I have. It should be on the graph editor toolbar, next to the Invert checkbox.

If it's not there, look for a RC build to be released pretty soon. That will have it for sure. :)

[quote=NaturalPoint - Seth][quote=James Hallows]As well, I'd also welcome removing the 180 limit ... that caught me out the other day.[/quote]
If you uncheck the "limit" checkbox, that should address it. If you'd like a limit, but want it to be something other than 180, you can either manually create it with the profile curves or edit the profile .xml limit value:

THX! for the hint :)

Seth, On an earlier post you told someone to check or uncheck the "Limit" box (to turn 180 limit on or off). Where the heck is that? I am using Beta 4 with TIR 4 hardware.

I just got the trackir5 and have installed the latest software 5.0
But after opening the trackir control panel it stops working after a minute or so and i get a message saying: trackir5 has stopped working.
I use Vista 32bit and track clip pro.

Any other applications running in the background?

Plugged directly into the PC, or using a hub?

Internet explorer and battlefield 2.
The usb cable is plugged right into the pc.
I will try the 4.1.037 software, maybe that is more stable?

I would uninstall the driver with Add/remove programs.
Then go to where you have installed your TrackIR (normally C:\Program Files\NaturalPoint\TrackIR5\TrackIR5.exe) and delete the NaturalPoint folder.
Restart your pc.
Plug your TrackIR camera into a different port.
Then re-install your TrackIR software.

This should hopefully get you up and running as this will not only reinstall the drive/software but plugging the camera into a different socket will force the pc to re-install the driver.

I would try and get the latest version of the software instead of any ver 4. The ver 5 software is easier to use than any predecessor; the way the information is displayed is so easier to understand.

FYI

Battlefield 2 still crashes with exception if TrackIR 5.0 Beta 5 is running and TrackIR switched on (F9).
