I've sent an email off as well.Funny thing is Flight ignited my interest in flight sims so much that I fired up FSX for the first time in ages and I've been enjoying both alot. However I went ahead and ordered TrackIR 5 and its amazing. I use it with wings of prey and rise of flight also. Now its gone and spoiled Flight for me! Until its supported in Flight I'll just pass time with other games.On a side note I'm not a hardcore simmer or a casual gamer, I'm a casual simmer (it can exist!)Niall

Hi Niall,Thank you very much for taking the time and emailing the Flight team your desire.Most certainly a " casual simmer" can exist!Your sentiment once you got your Track IR is a very common one, once folks actually take the plunge and try it out. And those Flight graphics and scenery, omg to be able to view whilst using Track IR would be awesome.Funny you mention how it ignited your interest in FSX - I have seen a lot of newer users over on the FSX forum that have expressed similar, and that is a good thing for the community.Heck it has even re-ignited more of my passion for simming than I already had, since Flight was released I have also purchased two newer WWII combat flight sims, as I have always loved them and had not bought any newer stuff in that genre in many years... of course I now have the pleasant problem of being able to fit all these into my already busy schedule.Oh and welcome to the Forums here! I see that is your first post - hang around, this is a great hangout and a lot of good info here as well!
I've sent an email off as well.

LOL. My TrackIR 5 arrived yesterday. I hooked it up and ran FSX and WOW! What a difference it makes.While I fully expected the results I got, to see it for myself was proof positive that TrackIR needs to be supported in every simulator, be it flight, driving, or whatever. (OK, FPS games might not be perfect, but it depends on how TrackIR is implemented.)OK. Back to exploring my new virtual world!WildBill

It is something isn't it? Your reaction is by far the reaction of the majority that purchase Track IR and use it for the first time.Btw check out the games profiles in Track IR, there are many driving simulators that include support for it as well.Ss far as flying, to best of my knowledge, Flight is the only sim that does not offer native support for Track IR. It has been several years, since a flying sim was released without this. It is another peripheral, right there in line with controllers, that needs to be supported in the sim. I certainly view Track IR now as important for my flight simming, as using a joystick. Heck, even Flight automatically recongnizes my Cougar joystick, states so right there in the controller options...Now, before you get back to your new virtual world, please take a moment and email the Flight team of your experience and desire to see Track IR implentation now that you have experienced it first hand!!Congrats on your new toy,and have fun!
