New guy here to this forum and have learned alot over the past week. A question for you trackir users. I am looking to get a trackir 5. Will all the features in trackir 5 (or 3-4) work with 1946 unmodded? Thanks for your time.

IL2 by default only has 2 degrees of freedom, meaning you can look up and down (like nodding your head yes) and look left and right (like shaking your head no) or any combination of those 2 movements.

So you won't be able to lean to see around the cockpit struts, for instance, unless you get a 6 degrees of freedom mod.

The short answer to your question Fiberbot is yes. All trackir versions will work with 1946 modded or unmodded.

OK Thanks for the info. I think I may wait for BoB SoW before I take the plunge into trackir. I am not sure that I want to upgrade to 4.09 just yet. But it is tempting to get the full features (6 FOV) out of trackir http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I wouldn't wait to add the 4.09 final patch Fiberbot. Even if want to add some mods, they will be installed over 4.09.

Nor would I wait for Bob before getting TrackIr.

You might want to try online play and I hope you will try Ubi Zoo Coops.

Good man! I would never mislead you. 4.09m patch has a self installer. All you have to do is to make sure it is pointed to the correct game location. It will do this automatically but check it anyway.

UPDATE....Big Brown just dropped off the new TrackIR5..easy hook up....software a little weird at first, but chose to use the easy interface and just loaded IL2 and WALLAH....freedom. Ok I had to set the sensitivity 2x but after that it was great. I do not have the ability of the full 6VOF but...with 4.09m...the almost 360 view is awesome. Takes some getting used to but, I already am a new pilot. Thanks to this forum to continue to make a great sim even greater. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Now i see why you hate mods so much.
Actually it is most common reason when someone bashing mods. I mean.. Evolve a little, why don't you?
6dof mod is a real blessing for Tir flyers but you won't get any benefits with your Old hatswitch5.
Just try them. Be it tir or user mods, you just didn't meet whole new world.

Anyhow,it is clear that beating deadhorse about mods and posting hatswitch thingy on tir thread won't help anyone here.

Fiberbot. It will take a couple of weeks until you are really comfortable with TrackIR. Then there will be no turning back.
