    Gizmo: Linux Port

    I was one going to ask, than I just had a second thought....

    Moving the GIZMO window in X-Plane screen

    Hi Ben, From what I could understand about Cekko's issue, he would like to have Gizmo running without the control window or with the window popping in from a different screen position. Cheers Alberto

    Gizmo install issue on 64 bit Windows

    At post #539 the Gizmo.plugin folder is clearly there Can we see a screenshot of what actually is INSIDE that folder? EDIT: OK, the folder contains what is expected to be there....

    I can confirm that. Within FreeTrackNoIR main window, select "Fake TrackIR" in the Game protocol combo. Then install Sandy Barbours' Pilot view and enable Track IR support. You will get a nice and smooth handling of all 6 degrees of freedom for you point of view.

    >The only shortcoming seems to be that FaceTrackNoIR cannot do sideways movement. Typical example when landing K&A's T-28 on the Nimitz as mentioned in Chip&Simon's blog, you need to be able to move sideways so you can see along the side of the nose. I haven't found a way to get FaceTrackNoIR to do this. Even though it has a "Roll" axis this is far from easy to get any satisfactory results from, and I've left Roll axis disabled. I really have to check that again (I am not currently on my gaming pc) but as far as I can remember you get the most out of FTNoIR by simulating the Track IR protocol and coupling it with Sandy's Pilot view.

    0 to 60 in 3 seconds.

    I see your point, Ben. Also, Pete's approach looks nice to me so I will be just fine. Cheers

    I see a lot of cases for this, but why not just making "inElapsedSinceLastCall" available to the script? Cheers x-a

    Four! :-) EDIT: ok, so we have the source code, we are mighty linux users... we should really go on and get the plugin built on our own effort... shouldn't we? too bad I failed already :-[ but I will not give up
