Anybody know if the Il-2 series (PF patch) will include support for the new "Vector Expansion" capability of Track IR3? Their site
http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/products/vector.html
says only MS FS 2004/CFS3 and Aces High II (patched) support the update. The zoom in/out dimension looks very useful, no more fooling with the FOV toggle to read instruments. Like most people who try TIR, I can't imagine virtual flying without it, as essential as rudder pedals. This update is pricey, but the added dimensions look interesting.

It supports FB but not in the way you can move your head in the cockpit 6 dimensions, only in the way you did with track ir 3 pro, left, right up and down.
The version 4 software is for vector and dot. i had it working today, but during online game it stopped working properly, it has something to do with the custom setup. not figured uot yet why. Its somewhat smoother in the way the head in cockpit moves.
Better try it.

As far as I'm aware, there was a post concerning this topic awhile ago, but sorry, I've lost the link!
The Maddox team will not be supporting 6dof for TrackIR for the time being. (Unless there has been a newer post!
Thats not to say that they will not support it in the future though.
I guess that they have their hands full, what with the patch developments and BoB etc. Sure they will get around to it at some stage! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

6D trackIr and 3d shutter glasses would be pretty amazing .. lean towards teh monitor to peer at the gauges in 3D http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

unfortunately sounds like neither are likely to be reliably available in Fb for some time to come

version 4 made head movements in pf much smoother. as mentioned above, it is worth trying.

Thanks. Yes, I've tried the updated driver, which seems to work pretty well. I think the 3.1 drivers work great, too, can't tell any difference.

OK, not worth the upgrade if FB+AEP=PF does not support the new 6D vectoring. Maybe in a future patch?

Nope. BoB will support it. Not IL2
