Thanks to HotdogUK over at SimHQ:-

There is a eay fix for this now I just tested it.

Shut down the TIR program and go into your registry, look for

TrackIR root key location will be found under :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NaturalPoint\NaturalPoi nt

The key name will be the version of the trackir
software, for instance "V3.10 GX" for 3.10

Then scroll down and change the 1 to 2 like it says below

* TrackIR Enhanced View Range Limiting override
Added : 2.11
registry key name : "ViewLimiting"
registry key values : "1" = normal (restricted to "realistic" ranges)
"2" = open (larger range of motion)

This was what we had to do to enable the Linda blair view that a lot of people complained about but now it gives you as much view as the mouse users get.

I dont know why its like this and im not sure how Oleg has done it this way, but it works as I just tested it. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

To Extreme_One or anyone else.
Could you please explain in steps how to edit the registry-thinga-ma-bob? I've never fiddled with registries and such, so I really don't have a clue.

Someone said over at SimHQ that the people over at NaturalPoint are working on a fix too (but that probably means another version of the software that borks the system...).

Any help appreciated. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Download already modified registry section here (http://czaf.boule.cz/trackir_fix.zip) . After you unpack the zip file, just double-click on the reg file and choose Yes for importing it to your registry. The file can be viewed in any editor (it's a plain text) so you may check it's not a virus. It's for the 3.10 driver, just to be sure.

Thanks, but I'm running TrackIR 1 with v2.11 on a rig with WinMe. What to do, what to do...?

Go to Start - Run - and type "regedit" (without the "), then navigate to this branch HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NaturalPoint\NaturalPoi nt.

Look there for a folder named "V2.11 GX" probably on your rig.

Then scroll down and find value "ViewLimiting", use right mouse button on it and select "Change", and instead of 1 type in 2.

Close regedit.
Finished.

Even after changing view limiting in the registry from 1 to 2, IMHO there is still a marked difference in the Linda Blair view after the patch is applied. Pre-patch, I could see both elevators plus the stabilizer. After-patch, I can only see one elevator plus stabilizer. This doesn't sound like much but the loss of viewable sky is significant and IMHO may negate the main benefit of TrackIR.

The view, with the registry update, is not quite straight back. That is more limited than before.

I don't know what you people used, but before the patch all I could see when turning my head to the left and back was the left elevator and maybe part of vertical stabilizer. Now I see even the right elevator and that's quite a big improvement.

The important thing is, the best rearward view you can now get using TrackIR is the SAME as for people without TrackIR. i.e., it's a level playing field so the whines about LB cheating/exploit can stop.
