I have been using FS2020 with TRACKIR until the last update without any problem. But since that last update (18.104.22.168), TRACK IR has stopped working with FS2020 (But it still works perfectly with other applications). The 2 lights are green but the cockpit view is not responding to my head movements. Pressing F12 does not solve the problem. I have reconfigured the key within the TRACKIR software
to toggle its activity, but it doesn’t help either.
You have to go into the control options and bind “Toggle Head Tracking”. I bound it to a joystick button, because you have to keep pressing it as you will continue to lose TrackIR while playing. This should be stickied to the top of the forum, and posted front and center when you update the sim.
The issue with TrackIR in latest release is, MSFS automatically switches off head tracking as soon as focus is lost. The only workaround I found is to assign the SPACE key to head tracking toggle in MSFS, however it is a pain in the a… since each time I try reaching a switch or an instrument which isn’t quite within direct straight view for the pilot (e.g. ADF in the stock C152) MSFS deactivates head tracking and recenters the fix view.
The same happens when I freeze my TrackIR, e.g. for reaching a gauge knob with the mouse or pressing some key on the G1000. For some reason somebody thought it would be a good idea to implement this, but it isn’t the case, on the opposite it’s a real pain in the a…
