TrackIR 5 dead zone "not locked" P3Dv4.5

Post by willig » Sat Mar 28, 2020 1:51 pm

Hi,
When using the IR-Tracker with P3Dv4.5 flight sim “running/flickering” shadow edges disturb the 3D cockpit view.

I checked if it improves with smooth, one-one or dead zone setting.
Unfortunately only pressing F9 (lock) remove the flicker immediately.
Back in the IR-Tracker mode the shadow edges and small text flickers.

Is there a good setup which keeps the Tracker locked when the head is more or less in a stable position?

Appreciate any support as this is a disturbing effect.

Hello,

Thank you for posting about your issue on the TrackIR forum. Would you be able to post a video of the problem you are experiencing? That should help figure out how to proceed.

Hi,
Please find attached the link to download the video file.
During recording I pressed twice F9 to freeze the view point!
I hope it helps to explain my issue with moving/flickering edges/text.
I am looking forward for a replay how to “freeze” the view point when the head position is "stable".

Hi Willig, the F9 pausing will be your best option to freeze the viewpoint with TrackIR.

Hi Jon,
Thanks for feedback. I guess it would be difficult to implement a smooth solution.
