So... I downloaded the new version of TrackIR (3.03 I think) (After having got it today for crimbo! yay) and I tried to play IL2 with it. The trouble is, in the mouse mode its unplayable but in the enhanced mode it does nothing at all! I read the manual and it says to enable TrackIR in game... could anyone tell me how to do this please? Thanks.

Oh, and could someone please direct me to the TrackIR fix thread? I've searched but I can't find it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Inside the config.sys for FB, there should be a line something like:

trackir=0

Change the zero to a 1.

OR you can download the IL2Stab from:

http://www.users.on.net/mjtm/IL-2/

It's got the option as a simple check box. I'm not absolutely positive about the config.sys thing, so I'd suggest the Il2Stab... it's a great program anyway

EDIT EDIT: The file you're looking for is Config.ini inside the main FB folder. Just checked it. Make it a one and you should be all set.

does anyone in here with trackir 1 and recently got trackir2 have any video of the panning smoothness, I would like to see I was a trackir 1 owner and wasnt impressed at all and found mouse look control to be much better and smoother.

Goduh,

Where are you trying to join? Ubi, or Hyperlobby, or what? The only time FB should ask you for a CD key is on installation, and I don't even remember it asking me for one. Am I wrong here, community? IF there is a CD key, it should be on the back of the jewel case... that's pretty much a standard I believe for keys like that.

TrackIR (Or at least TrackIR2) is really surprisingly smooth (As smooth as using a mouse) although it does feel very awkward at first (And still does ...) but I'm sure it will get better - people say that it takes a couple of days' getting used to and then its second nature... I assume this is true, I'm already getting better, still some tweaking to be done.

I use the progressive mode... what are people's thoughts on this? I think its fine... but I havn't yet tried things like Dead Zone... does anyone think that any other is better than Progressive? Thanks for help. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I just got Trackir2, and my initial impression is that I need to reduce sensitivity in the middle of view and increase it at the sides. Is this what others do? Just curious.

Set up a pretty good dead-zone at first. It takes awhile to train yourself on the head movement. Also remember not to duck your head when you fly under bridges. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Have fun with it.

I have been watching this technology since it started (trackir). I have been a sim pilot since the early days. I also have around 475 hours in small single engine aircraft and hold an instrument rating as well as private pilot. I can honestly say the TRackIr2 has been nothing short of amazing. I had my doubts as well as read a few complaints and tech issues. I have had my track IR for 2 hours and all of

I set the speeds for points gradually higher and higher to stop the hesitation at the outer edges. I only noticed this in FB and not FS2004. Mine would freeze up at first right when my viewpoint was looking straight out left or right, so I increased the point speeds and now I can smoothly look around the full (as fully left and right as FB lets you, not the Exorcist chick setting where you can see the tail) cockpit.

EDIT: this post doesn't make any sense at all, does it? That's what I get for posting at 6am... need sleep!
