Encouraging GameTrash and skypilot.
Others - please try a Reboot and Start Track IR BEFORE the Sim and see.

All - keep reporting Track IR issues and VOTE if Track IR is INOP for you.

FWIW- I always start TIR prior to starting the sim.

Pausing TIR will recenter then lock the view. I have to go into the camera bar and toggle the switch back on while TIR is in the unpaused state… Bingo, it works … until you pause it again. Rinse repeat.

A “work around” but by no means a good solution

Good catch Raynen. Not great but better than ending flight prematurely.

This workedf for me. After SU7 TrakIR has issues, but it’s a known issues as per Release notes.

That’s the Workaround for the moment.

Please continue to VOTE and post Observations.

Cannot turn it on, it immediately turns off again. In the TrackIR control panel everything seems normal but not in the sim :frowning_face:

I just happen to use the TrackIR a lot, and well it is working until you use the mouse/ pause the TiR :frowning:

It was working well prior to GOTY update :slight_smile:

Keep the VOTES and Notes coming chaps - particularly any solutions such as Raynen’s solid workaround posted above. For us Track IR Pilots - Track IR is an indispensable part of Sim Procedures.

Frustrating - but posting/ Voting here is going to assist in getting a solution.

TrackIR does work, but it gets toggled off if it loses “contact”. There is a new “toggle head tracking” key to be assigned which turns it back on (or you can do it in the camera tab). Annoying but well so it is for now

I find it annoying as #%&4 for having to activate “headtracking” every time i enter a flight, spend time in a menu or have gone out of bounds for the tracking camera. the last one is really annoying as i like to do acrobatics. so i move my head around a lot. Only to find my camera resetting itself in the middle of a movement. CTRL+H is the default key now to “wake it up again”.

It’s definitely annoying. Having to do that at 450 KTS at ZERO feet in the Hornet going around the Mach Loop is just not viable when every millisecond counts.

But, CTRL + H is the HOTKEY to REACTIVATE lost TRACK IR when in FLIGHT.

Nice one DaikiDecimus.

How can you ship an update with half broken TrackIR functionality for a simulator with a lot of TrackIR users? I don’t understand. Especially now with the new air racing DLC

Please hotfix.

Same issue here. As soon as trackir loses line of sight with track clip it no longer works. I notice that the track ir diasapears from the options menu when it loses sight and them comes back when its on sight. Once this happens while in a flight it won’t work. Even resetting with f12 as per patch notes does nothing.

This is a MAJOR thing to break especially with something like reno air races being released. Trackir is crucial in that kind of content

what I found out is when you pause trackir, a few second later it’s get disable in the camera window!!
after that if you try to get trackir on it won’t work until you reset the trackir in camera menu EVERYTIME!!!
