This place gets good reviews:

I got my TiR2 from these guys:

I'd thoroughly recommend RC Simulations - I bought a TM Cougar from them a couple of years ago.

About eight months after I bought it, I needed it serviced under warranty due to an intermittent fault but had lost the reciept.

I emailed them and asked if they still had a copy of the invoice and if so, could I have a photocopy of it; it turned up in the post two days later http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I don't see the vector with the RC package, is it included ?

track ir4 comes with vector expansion, and supports 6dof

Just my six-penny worth - I'd also strongly recommend rcsimulations down in Bristol. Very prompt delivery, excellent service.

All the best,

Edimensional is also very good. Got mine in just a couple of days after ordering.

You can't go wrong with either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

BTW, I was browsing through Edimensional's other products. Has anybody tried that 3D software and glasses they have, for viewing photos and DVD's in 3D and if so, is it any good ??

I read a review on the 3D glases a couple of years ago. The reviewer had tried them with Operation Flashpoint and he seemed to be quite impressed by the immersion it added to the game (I specially remember his comments on how solid the smoke looked) Only flaw: the framerate droped by half. oops.

You won't be able to see your current photos or DVDs in 3D. For that you'd need a camera that takes 2 pictures at the same time. One for each eye.

Right, credit card at the ready ! Gonna order it from Edimentional today.

Does it take much to set up or can I be lazy and down load a profile from somebody else ??

You can start with somebody else's profile, but IMO, you'll be happier when you've configured it for yourself.

I use TiR2, so your experience will be different to mine, but ...
I started with relaxed settings (fairly slow) and a 'dead-zone'. After a few weeks, I got rid of the dead-zone, and started tightening the settings.

There is a learning curve to using TiR; push yourself, but don't push too hard.

On my TiR 2,I still use the 'default' profile.Seems to work fine for me.

Very last question... I promise !
Do you have to change anything in the conf. file in order to run TIR 4.

in the config.ini find the trackIRuse=1 line and make sure it is 1 and not 0

it is located in the [rts] section
