Tobii eye tracker pause button, please

Pausing on a cockpit control would make it easier to then use the control with the mouse.

I’m just trying to understand this Wishlist topic better.
Are you looking for something that pauses the eye tracker without pausing the sim?

Need a pause in place to freeze tracking so we can manipulate controls. The current pause ey tracking snaps back to default view.

Ah, I get it. So you’re asking to be able to pause it without automatically snapping back to the default view. Yeah, that would be a useful option.

We can toggle of course using the “Toggle Head Tracking” keybind so maybe this is what you are asking for? Using a head tracker you,

  1. Look at a position.
  2. Pause head tracking (not disable)
  3. Manipulate the switches or whatever.
  4. Unpause head tracking.

After step 4, the head tracking should snap to the whatever your current head position is as though it were never paused.

Doing the above would indeed make it a lot easier for us to toggle switches, use CDUs, etc.

Personally I’d like the “pause” facility to be a press and hold button. Not a toggle.

Yes, to make it easier to make changes to a cockpit control with the mouse.

I’m sorry, what are you trying to pause? I don’t own a Tobii eye tracker so I am trying to understand this request. I’m also trying to understand if this is something that Tobii should be doing instead of MSFS.

Tobii support is fully integrated in MSFS, there are no settings for MSFS in the Tobii Game Hub software. This means the pause functionality must be added in MSFS.

Still, for TrackIR, that feature is made available by the accompanying software, so you might as well direct your request to Tobii, I guess?

I posted this in another thread that may be relevant to what is being discussed here. Specifically the third paragraph.
