Were the welder sounds & other such stuff in the hangar just added or am I just hearing them for the first time for some reason?

OK I have a work around for Freetrack users

 

1) download, unzip and run opentrack @ https://github.com/opentrack/opentrack

 

2) Press start in open track

 

3) open and run bos then minimize

 

4) Press stop in open track 

 

5) open free track and run as per normal

 

6) go back to bos and it should work

 

Same fix as in Elite Dangerous, open track tricks it into working  

 

How do you run it? I don't see a single executable

Or search ED freetrack u will get the correct one

Head tracking issue solved :

 

As previously said by sturmkraehe and Han, just update your head tracking software. Manually if necessary.

That's fine if you CAN!

I've been unable to update my Track-IR software all year. The installer just stops halfway through and I've tried everything short of a full o/s reinstall.

Mastiff, Are there any "new" settings or switches re: TrackIR in the game interface or settings screen?

Can confirm AeroAce's method works for Freetrack.

Download:
https://github.com/opentrack/opentrack/releases/download/opentrack-2.3-20141105/opentrack-windows-unstable-20141105-ba60f82.zip

Run it.
I set Tracker to: "PointTracker"
Protocol to : "Freetrack"

Hit start. Did not change any other settings.
Opened IL2 Launcher.
Loaded game, entered to main menu (went through login).
alt-tabbed, hit stop on OpenTrack.
Loaded Freetrack and hit start.

Oddly, even with the profile my Pitch was then inverted but everything else, curves and sensitivities seem fine.

Very annoying workaround

Lensman,

I had the same problem with TIR when I was forced to update the software for it to work in DCS.

I tetsted it against a friends unit and it turned out to be my camera unit, even thoughit it worked fine with the older 32 bit software.

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?

 

Me too, my TrackIR is still working. Non-Steam BOS. My profile is custom and exclusive.

their are little ways of making freetrack not crash, for example hit stream then apply and wait 5 seconds and it will work, if u just hit start it will crash every time

Yeah they are new. I was just thinking this week that the silence was awkward but i got used to it. Not it always surprises me when i hear the sounds. I think they are a nice touch.

 

I found that the messages in yellow that show on the top when you complete a mission show up in russian even when your language is en English.

 

I haven't had any crashes yet, so that's awesome news!

 

Thank you devs for this push!

I tried all of that. It crashes every time no matter what I do.

I had the same problem with TrackIR4 #52320, software v. 2.2.200 (buld 14548) as some people above. I downloaded only newest update game profiles end TrackIR 4.0 working fine. I use profile "Requiem June 2014" marked as exclusive.

 

But... I can not turn off the welder in the main and mission menu :biggrin: 

Bzzzz... bzz... bzzzzz... bzz... :lol:

 

Keep it up devs :clapping:

Two issues:

 

1. The update didn't reset my controls and settings. Can I do it manually?

 

2. I put inlet cowl shutters on axis. I am not able to reverse this axis, it works in one direction in spite of settings.

TIR 3 with 6DOF Vector upgrade not working for me. All software is updated to the latest applicable version. Everything was fine until I got booted for the update. Let me know if anyone figures out a fix.

 

Thanks for the update, unfortunately for me it has made it impossible to play. I have to say that this sim is getting closer and closer to being shelved for me every day. QMB "sandbox/ground hog day" campaign, no mission builder, porked friendly AI and elementary grammatical typos at every turn are starting to make me think that there is a whole lot of potential and not many solutions for obvious issues being implemented......

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

 

Campaign gameplay. Not multiplayer.

 

Had issue with trackir, searched for game updates in trackir and reboot after patch got trackir working again for me.

 

I am also getting Cryilic message for "mission complete" or "fail" etc.  Other messages are in English as in FeliusCzar's post.

Make sure you are running trackir 5 software - even if you have the trackir 4, like I do.  Click the circle on the top left corner for a menu in your Trackir interface - the same place you'd see File in a standard window's application.  Scroll to update software and click.  Do the same for update games list.  If you are like me, you won't see a difference - you will get a report that everything is up to date.  I recommend a reboot after this, as this worked for me.  Good luck!

Invert axis in inlet shutters on LA5 not working. Oil temp in la 5 extremely high (around 100) even @ cruise setting with oil shutter fully open. Opening air inlet shutter have effect on oil temp? Seems that way but please confirm. Also, seems that tR5 not picking up profile automatically with ROF title

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

 

:rofl:

 

Many of us (including myself) don't want to waste the time trying to build a head-tracking device that may or may not be better than TrackIR, and (speaking for myself) the price NaturalPoint charges is fine by me.

~TiR 5 working with my custom profile.
+Old input files seem to work fine, had to bind new controls manually but old ones keep working. 

+Loading times noticably faster in both versions. 

+Forgot to uncheck motion blur cinematic camera and blur seems to be less annoying, left it on. Maybe it's me.

-Welder sound is going to give me headaches as soon as it stops being novelty.
-Messages at end of mission in Russian.
 

All in all a good update... if your headtracking works :(. Sorry for all people whose game just became unplayable, hope it'll be fixed.

Many of us like to build things that work by hand, be it headtracking or custom flight sticks or simpits...
