re assigning the default trackir keys


Recommended Posts

after discovering that keeping the default key commands for the trackir software was taking away the original functions performed by those keys i got to thinking, better remap the offending keys, f7 f8 and f9.


so i went into the trackir profile, went to hotkeys and edited them accordingly.

i never use the slow setting so i disabled that.

i changed the 'pause' to numberpad 2,

and the 'centre view' to numberpad 1.


this gave me back the f7 f8 and f9 keys to give me alternate view etc.


i chose the numberpad keys 1 and 2 as ever since getting a trackir i have never really used the numberpad other than to zoom in and out, default zoom and quickly looking at the instrument panel. the view commands seemed like a good choice.


just worked this out today and was wondering how other trackir users map their keys?

good to see i am not alone, how did i not stumble across this before:music_whistling:

it is only thanks to touchbuddy and ruggbutts f15 profile that i really got to understand i had a problem as my trackir would pause or go into slow mode after i had tried to give my wingmen a command from the game tab.

might be able to add some buttons to the game tab for the trackir centre, pause etc.



i guess i doesn't matter what keys you use provided they aren't mapped to something else :)

I have mine mapped to the cursor arrows. By default, they are flight controls but I would assume almost everyone here uses a joystick . . .


They are very easy to find in the heat of battle, very hard to miss!!


a very good point, i like it:thumbup:
