Saving Snap views

 

Might do a quick video soon

 

Couldn't say it better myself.

 

Customising a Snap View:

 

1. Set your current view up as you want it saved.

 

2. Press LWin+NumN - NumN being whichever numeric keypad key you intend customising. Your view will briefly snap to whatever the current snap view setting is for that key, then return to your previous view.

 

3. Press RAlt+Num0 - The snap view should now be saved.

 

Test it by changing your view, then holding down LWin+NumX - you should see your customised snap view!

 

 

Important: Disable/Pause your Track-IR/Head-tracker while doing it !

 

 

Keys to use when setting up the view:

 

 

"Num/ - RCtrl - RShift" Cockpit Camera Move Back

"Num5" Cockpit Camera Move Center

"Num2 - RCtrl - RShift" Cockpit Camera Move Down

"Num* - RCtrl - RShift" Cockpit Camera Move Forward

"Num8 - RCtrl - RShift" Cockpit Camera Move Up

"Num8" Turn Cockpit Camera Up

"Num2" Turn Cockpit Camera Down

"Num/" FOV- aka Zoom-in

"Num*" FOV+ aka Zoom-out

"NumEnter" Default FOV aka Zoom

 

 

Best regards

Setting up the Free Su-25t with a single joystick and keyboard.

 

I give some ideas here that you can play with using the keyboard and single joystick. I even started out flying the A-10C using a single stick and keyboard.

Very Basic getup and fly guide

It's a little dark and needs redoing

DCS Trackir Setup in simulator

 

 

12:40 Important to have a zoom in, out and a reset zoom key on your controls.

14:39 I go over Trackir camera and headset positioning, this is very important if you are having trackir tracking problems.

 

 

 

New faster multiplayer profile below

 

I speed up the Track ir profile even more here so you can see your monitor easier when looking around and it's less work on turning your head / neck and eye's when looking backwards. Helps for doing long multiplayer sessions.... The trade off is that it is quicker, if you are new to track ir, you may want to slow things down until you adapt to it first, then speed it up some more.

 

 

Flight Sim Junkie Profile 001, save it to your desktop. Again this is not recommended for getting started with Trackir, it's a very quick moving profile. Start with a slow smoother profile to adapt.

Place in YOUR TrackIR profiles found at...... C:UsersYOURNANEAppDataRoamingNaturalPointTrackIR 5Profiles

Reload Trackir and switch to this profile.
