Default TrackIR doesn't like my Spit

Really odd problem. Maybe I neglected to click or check a box somewhere?

Swapped out my controllers. Got everything back together and TrackIR doesn't work on the Spitfire.

Works fine on P-51 and F-86 but not on the Spit.

Swapped out drivers. Nada. Looked everywhere for a box to check or a switch to flip. Nada.

The TrackIR column appears on the controls page so it appears DCS sees TrackIR but it isn't connecting.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Try a repair just in case something broke. Are you using any mods?

Finally gave up, tossed DCS off my internal hard drive and downloaded DCS to my external solid state drive and TIR now likes the Spit again.

Can't explain it but it's working again.

Thanks ManOWar. S!

So something was broken in the install. You may try to clean any remains of the old install and do it again in your regular internal hard drive. If the external disk install is all correct it shouldn't take long as many files are just copied between installs.
