Since this is now the
stickied Track-IR thread, I know I would find it useful if people could post some good profiles or links to them and maybe HarryH
would be kind enough to edit them into a section in the first post. I am always looking for a better profile!
Sure, no problem. I'll put my current profile up there to kick things off...
Hope you are doing well in the New Year! I haven't had much time to chime in on the boards lately - RL is as busy as ever and it seems my flying time was scant over the last six months. I wanted to post, however, to thank you for all of your efforts in smoothing out WOFF. I tried applying your settings for TrackIR, as well as your workshop settings in WOFF:PE. Our system specs are pretty similar except for video cards and monitors, which you are leading on
Dropping the roll rates down to 0 in TrackIR seems to help, but for me, and I think this is the case since we are running nearly identical processors, is getting TrackIR off of Core 0. Once it's not fighting with CFS3, the head panning works much better. I'm not seeing a huge difference between Realtime processing or leaving it be, but moving it away from competing cores is huge - at least with this chip set. The other change that's had a massive impact are your workshop settings. I copied them verbatim and I notice a MASSIVE improvement in the sim's smoothness. I am no longer getting any hangups looking around in sim. Pausing the sim on startup and then panning around a few times with the exterior camera loads everything up nicely and from there, it's been smooth sailing, even in 1918 with medium air activity.
I think the biggest difference between your approach and what I've tried is that you are willing to drop the graphics back further than you think they need to go. That leaves a bit of a buffer so that when the sim gets busy there's enough slack left in the engine and the computer's hardware to keep things going smoothly.
Can't thank you enough. I'm also doubly impressed that you managed this with no mods, no editors, and no outside help. This is an extremely solid baseline, especially if you are running in the 3.6ghz range of processors.
