Anyone managed to solve the problem (some of us are getting) with tir3 not
working in FSX retail?

What's the secret?

I had same problem. I went to the Trackir forum. I did what gamers
recommended on it and it worked. Overall, the problem is that it is
not reading the newest FSX driver, even though you intalled it.

Solution: In general, do a complete elimination of old track ir
drivers do a reinstall of newest track ir drivers.

Specific steps:

1. Eliminate all old track ir Drivers http://9573f00jrksyaq7x-fvlpkrrco.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=DATABASEFORUM " target="_top" rel="nofollow">[Driver Robot fixes your driver problems] first: Go to windows control
panel by clicking, Start\control panel\add remove programs. Click on
track ir 4 and remove its drivers.

2. Unplug your track ir from its plug.

3. Go to track ir website and only download newest trackir driver.

4. Re plug in track ir cord.

5. Now windows should automatically state that it is finding new
hardware (track ir)....and FSX works. I know, it is a bugger and very
frustrating...but hang in there.

1. Slightly OT: TrackIR3 & Racing Sims

(Although this is a Flight Sim Newsgroup, I'm making an assumption that 
some of you also using racing sims.  I posted these questions in 
rec.autos.simulators, but didn't get many responses, so I hope to get 
some more here.  I know that the TrackIR3 is pretty popular with Flight 
Sims....)  Here's my repost:

"Is anyone here using the NaturalPoint TrackIR (www.trackir.com)with 
Racing Sims?

It seems to be geared more for flight sims (which I'm not into as much 
as racing sims), but has direct support for a few racing sims as well, 
like GTR and LFS. It also reportedly has indirect support for GPL 
through the GPLShift utility.

I'm curious about how worthwhile this thing is for racing sims, how easy 
it is to install and use, whether it requires it's own power (other than 
what's supplied through USB), and whether it supports other racing sims 
either directly or indirectly."

For those of you also into racing sims, I'd appreciate any input 
regarding how well it works with them.  For those who've used it 
strictly just for flight sims, perhaps you could comment on the 
questions in the last paragraph (regarding installation/set-up, etc)?

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

3. FSX Acceleration's causing FSX to Crash

Yes... Whenever I try to get back to "Cockpit" View, the Game crashes giving 
me an error message... When I uninstall FSX Acceleration this is solved...

Any Help would be appreciated,

5. FSX

I have FSX+Accel. I am having a very hard time controlling helicopters in 
the game.  Planes are no problem.

Whenever I am in full power the Bell Jet Ranger in this case pitches up and 
I start moving in reverse.  If go to medium or low power I can fly somewhat 
level, but I will fall out of the sky.

Is there a fix for this.  Mu joystick is a MS Sidewinder Pro and I 
calibrated it at least a dozen times.

7. Upgrading from 2004 to FSX Deluxe

Hi all

I'm something of a newbie so I hope this question isn't too badly

I've been playing with FS2004 and very pleased with it.   I run it on
an XP P4-3GHz machine with 1Gb RAM and 256Mb of Dualhead graphics.
Works very well.   The odd crash out to the desktop but all in all I'm

I now want to upgrade to FSX Deluxe and have a Vista machine to put it
on.   I know about the one license per machine "feature" but I need to
know if the machine I have in mind is powerful enough.   It's running
Vista with 2Gb RAM and the CPU is Intel Quad Core 750.   As yet, it's
running off an onboard graphics controller - because I've not bought a
proper PCI-E card yet.

I'm happy to buy a good card (can't fit the old one from the XP box as
it's AGP), but I want the Vista machine to run FSX Deluxe as well as
the XP machine runs FS2004.   Is this possible with the hardware I've
described bearing in mind it's now Vista?

Can someone give me a link to a realistic set of requirements to run
FSX Deluxe on a Vista machine?
