Track IR help please

Recommended Posts

Well......had to do it....bought TrackIR 5 whatever.........it is astonishing and clearly there's a LARGE learning curve ahead. Maybe this is a PM topic so please advise but here goes...

1. how do I access the TR after closing the game to adjust a profile.....I click the shortcut but always have that "already running" warning come up on screen

2. seems the centering F12 is essential and tried to program it to the stick but no go...works on the engineering screen w/ TR but not in the game

3. I have no yaw....again...engineering screen w/ TR shows head tilt working but in game no go

 

thanks any TR users out there!!

Look on the tool bar at the bottom right of your monitor screen. If TrackIR is running, you'll see its icon there

If you are using windows 7, you can bring up the screen by clicking the little up arrow by the time in the lower right hand corner. It shows all the programs that are running, it is not always just at the bottom of the screen.

Well, YAW is turning your head left and right, gaw.

 

Yes, the Center command can be put on a stick button. I have it on a top thumb button.

You could try my profile here - you only need to assign the joystick buttons new.

Mine is a mix of a found one, Creaghorns, and my additions. It works very immediate.

It should also work with TrackIR4 (I have TR4 hardware, but TR5 software updated).

 

Extract it and put it here in the program's folder:

 

NaturalPoint > TrackIR5 > Profiles

 

Then start TrackIR and select it. Click "Exclusive", so it won't change on each start.

What hardware do you have? The TrackIR4 and 5 have "Roll", and I guess without "Roll"

I wouldn't be able to look over the cockpit sides? Not sure. I'll go ingame and report.
