A group of us guys on TS were just talking last night about not having to reset our controls again.  :lol:   Oh well, I was wrong.  Who knew it would happen the next day.  :o:

Not all controls need to be set up again :) just a few.

 

Actually the command menu feels natural in its position ( across the top cockpit bar ), but I would not mind an options à lá Il-2 1946 with only the text ( small ) in the top left corner ;)

 

From all the other fixes the update seems good at least to solve the crashes so many folks had.

 

S!

track IR no longer works in Steam or PC version.

 

Can we turn the Menu UI sound down? a little I'm at 3/4 up on volume control and that sound is loud!

Awesome on pilot gestures and commands UI menu and itself as a feature from RoF.

 

But the stabilizer trim on 109 still snapping on first tuning when starting on air or taking off without touching it while taxing. I've flown one flight on campaign minutes ago and the issue remained. Checking again.
 
Good update  :salute:

 

Keep it up

Please update your TrackIR software and profiles.

 

Be sure that you have TrackIR stock profile in the list of your TrackIR tool.

Hmm..., my TrackIR is working, Steam version of BoS. I have my profile set to "exclusive" in the TrackIR software though, so it's always loaded. Maybe it's just a case of the automatic loading of the profile not working?

Found my solution: I went in my trackir interface on the top left corner on "game update" and installed the latest game list update. Did the trick for me without the need to re-install the whole TrackIR software. I use TrackIR 4 with TrackIR 5 software.

Another small misfortune with the patch. I just got a message in cyrilic on a english set game version.

 

Campaign gameplay. Not multiplayer.

Han, are you sure it's a Track IR software problem, or profile loading ?

 

I tried with default setup, still no input.

My Track IR 5 is set to auto update.. Version : 5.2.200 (Build 14548)

Mastiff, I suggest to update to TrackIR5 software. Works fine with TrackIR 4 (my setup). It is a very convenient update to the TrackIR software. I like it very much.

What about freetrack? I am using facetracknoir with my own IR headset and freetrack protocol.

I don't like the dead center setting hence the reason I don't use it.

So freetrack users are screwed then 

Currently and most likely for the future: yes.

 

The fun part is, as far as I'm aware there is no reason freetrack shouldn't work with any track-IR functional game.. unless its deliberately made to not work.

 

The  better part is, who would shell out for RipOff-IR when you quite literally can make a perfectly functioning one yourself for around $1.50 worth of LEDs from ebay.

And then on top of that it's inferior and outdated technology at rip-off prices with occulus around the corner

There is one? Did not realize, Mastiff ;) Well, then I don't know. I just post what worked for me in the hope that it helps others.

nice update! 

 

I found a couple of issues:

  1. the Esc key is not working now (not talking about the Saitek script issue)
  2. The ~ key opens the commands menu but none of the options work for me, (F1, F2, F3 or Esc) but i can close the menu by pressing ~ again.

@IIIJG52BlackWest :

 

Stop saying bullshits, help this baby to born, or leave it. But before to slam the door, remind the great work done by the dev, and stop crying like that 1 hour after a patch.

This sim is great looking at all its fundamental aspects, so just help the devs and the community to make it better in the rest.
