I have a Track IR3 Pro for sale. Used very little. Works great, I just never could get used to it. Too old I guess. Anyway, everything is here but one reflector dot(small). Paid $130, will take $100 for it, shipping in the US included. Email me at: Hoper5775@cox.net

Don't do it mate! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif Give it some more time. It varies for everyone, some pick it up right away, others take up to a month or more. It was about two weeks until it became natural for me.

I would suggest always using TIR; never go back and forth from using the hatswitch/mouse. Instead of using a "curve" that accelerates your turning speed as you move your head, use a good dead zone for centering but a constant speed for the rest of the points - this is more natural and let's your head determine quickness of movement. And, finally, it will certainly feel hopeless at first, so playing offline may salvage any bruising of the ego. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I agree with Tactical Yak3.

Give it a bit more effort. Go to the profile and make the dead zone larger...Ungroup the edit points and create aa custom profile. Go into the tracking menu and increase the H/W filter. (I have mine set at 38 and 44 respectively) Use a FEW dots to make a larger reflection.

If all fails I understand selling it.... but it REALLY does work.

Oh, and you're NEVER too old. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I had a similar reaction when i bought Track IR 2, it seemed to pan far to quickly and no matter how i tried to alter the settings, it just didnt feel right, someone here told me to d/l a new profile for it, which was much slower and smoother, i still had to alter it slightly...however...i will never be without it, ever...it completely improves your flying ability and totally enhances your immersion in IL2...just try and give it another go, search Track IR's website for a profile or wait till some kind soul here has the answer...but dont get rid of it a little patience is required at first but once set up, you'll never need to touch it again, and i guarantee you wont regret it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm not saying this to pick on you VF-29, others have said it too. But when people say they have to hold their head still it sounds like it's an uncomfortable thing, like you must sit RIGIDLY still, afixed to the monitor.

I find I only have to sit as still as if I'm READING an article or post online. I guess that's what puzzles me as to why some dislike the Track IR, when my experience has been a dream. It's VERY comfortable to me.

Once you go Track...you NEVER go back!

I don't have TIR yet (Christmas), but interested in getting it after I read reviews of it here. I also read one of the TIR people's posts on these boards that they are making a software upgrade in the near future that frees you from having to sit still.

I agree completely with TacticalYak... I only got my TIR today, and while it will definitely take some getting used to, I can only see benefit when it comes to this device... try just a bit longer...

You chaps that don't use trackIR don't know what you are missing.I would rather lose my joystick than tir.Those that have tried it and couldn't cope I'm sure didn't have the right profile or were using mouse simulation(which imo shouldn't be in the bloody software as it is useless and confusing).
You should check the "absolute" box and a profile such as Burnins_777 which is a very good allrounder with a nice central dead spot allowing a steady straight ahead view and a good side to side movement.
I give full credit to Burnin_777 though I have long since lost the address to his profiles.
If he reads this post I'm sure he will respond.
If not I would be happy to forward it to anyone
having trouble with tir. I truly feel sorry for those that have bought it and don't use it.You have a gem and don't know it.
Cheers, Ibis. whisper
PS. It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to get used to it,if it does something is wrong with your setup.
Some in my squad were having all sorts of difficulties but once Burnins profile and with "absolute" checked they have Hallaluyer seen the light.
BUGGER, now I'm gunner get shot down MORE often.

No, not yet another fellow :FI: with TrackIR! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif How will I ever keep up with you guys?

Yes, of course we hope TIR will help with dogfighting, realizing its usefulness in maintaining SA. However, I really enjoy panning down below to check out the towns and airbases, or looking at various gauges. In short, the immersion is what this little device offers.

It's not cheap, and does take time to figure out, but in the end well worth it.

There is no need for that. You go in the deadzone settings and set the speed points and you can move and keep it steady for shooting.
It is all the way you sey it up. The default settings to me is **** you have to adjust it to slow it down so it is smooth as silk.
