Another vote for Mac support for TrackIR!

As an X-Plane user, 2 Mac Pro desktops, want to run OSX not Boot-camp & Windoze. How hard can it be to find/hire a Mac programmer to port it to OSX? Other USB device manufacturers port over their hardware... Saitek plugins for example... Please consider it... a way to boost sales for your company is open your product up to a whole new raft of users!

Incredible, you ask your customer to find you a devellopeur?

Are you kidding or what? Since 2006 you've done nothing to find an apple dev?

I did not think that the U.S. was also crummy regarding business management as Greenland, management teams of your business are clearly incompetent, put them OUT.

Are you kidding? 6 years to build a project that will endure dev has just over a week of work by a pro? You are afraid to invest? Are you on bankrupt? What do you do with the money from your customers?

Dont say me that you not understand that a minimum investment for Mac Users you'd make a lot of new users? Management win / win somehow.

Your reaction is not only unjustifiable but it is a lack of professionalism that shames your business.

Wake up.

Hello -

We've been through this a number of times, unfortunately the facts of the matter have not changed.

In order for TrackIR to be supported by a game, the game has to be developed with TrackIR in mind. Having said that, there are virtually no games for Mac (I can only think of a handful at best) that support TrackIR functionality.

We regularly re-evaluate the need to make Mac support official, but at this time based on the number of requests that we receive for mac support it's just not past the threshold we would need to move into this.
