Tacview 1.7.6 is available


Download: http://tacview.net/download


  • Release Date: Thu, 21 Mar 2019
  • Operating System: Windows® 32-bit / 64-bit
  • File Size: 269.0 MB


This intermediate release brings a lot of fixes and improvements requested by both the community and professional users.


While I am focusing more and more on the development of Tacview 2.0, it is going to take some time before we can put our hands on a first beta version. Meanwhile the Tacview 1.8.0 is already on its way and will continue developing further the capabilities required for professional military debriefings, like a brand-new real-time shot log which will eventually replace the aged flight log.


Tacview 2.0 conception phase is still open, so feel free to share your ideas and suggestions here. Even if everything single whish may not be granted, be assured that I am always taking all your feedback in consideration.


Fly safe!

I'm trying to use Tacview and have the settings correct as far as I know:



and I try Left-Ctrl + R in game but no acmi files in the Tracks directory.


Any thoughts? I'd love to get this going!

Agh, I really want to get TacView working. I noticed that there's a "Recording" folder option, so I've set the location for that but still no joy.

Hi FlyingNutcase


I have just tested with IL-2 v3.012c and it has generated a proper *.acmi file in a sub folder of my IL-2 install. By default, I needed to press LCtrl+R to trigger data recording. At that point I can see the little red camera icon in the top right corner of the screen.


As Plank suggested, if you have redefined the default control used to trigger trk files recording, you will have to press your own key combination.


Side note: The “ACMI Files Recording Folder” does not have any effect on IL-2 series. IL-2 records all the acmi files in its own folder “\IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad\data\Tracks\”
