center view with x52 pro

Post by pcal2008 » Wed Nov 11, 2009 6:14 am

Hi,

I'm using TIR5 with condor and the saitek x52 pro HOTAS. I have tried assigning the F12 key with the x52 profilling software and it doesn't work!.... Any ideas?

The F12 option, to recenter the view, is set functions within the TrackIR software itself. There is no reason to use keyboarding software for the function, and can actually cause it to stop functioning as the software applications can have a conflict.

Try mapping the recenter function, to the saitek, directly within the TrackIR software.

What OS are you using?

Not to bring up an old thread (if it is)

But what if I want to have two separate buttons to center trackir?

I play ArmA 2 and would like to have a center button on my mouse as well as have that same button mapped on my x-52 joystick.

I realize that it doesn't read the x-52 mapped key but instead it reads the x-52 button name. Is there any way to get around that?

At the moment, the software does not support mapping a function to multiple hotkeys at the same time. I'll put it on the feature request list for future exploration. No guarantee that it's doable, but we'll look into it. :)
