Is it possible to use Trackir with Wing Commander Saga?



In theory, it should be, TrackIR support has been around for a while now.

A friend of mine tried it out and TrackIR does indeed work with WCS. You just need to put the file trackir.dll of FSO into the root directory of WCS.

Yep it works fine.

Sounds great. Doesn't work for me though. Can you please give more specific instructions though?

I tried copying the DLLs from to \FreespaceOpen\Wing_Commander_Saga\Wing_Commander_Saga-0.9.6
Doesn't do anything. I also tried copying it into various FSO insalltion folders such as \FreespaceOpen\bin\FSO-21.4.0\windows\x64 and \FreespaceOpen\bin\FSO-21.4.0\windows\x64\bin. No success either.

Steps copied from Discord:
Download and install FreeTrack
Put the FreeTrack dll in the main FreeTrack directory.
Set FreeTrack to run as an Administrator with Windows 7 compatibility (right click on the .exe>properties>compatibility tab).
Put the other DLL file in the FSO build folder: \bin\<version>\windows\x64.

lol. thanks, buddy! I had checked on discord in the meantime and found the same entry. FreeTrack is something else though.

I've still got it to work by copying scptrackir64.dll and scptrackir.dll into:

and then forcing Wing Commander Saga to use \FreespaceOpen\bin\FSO-21.4.0\windows\x64_avx\fs2_open_21_4_0_x64_AVX.exe . You can do that in Knossos / Options button of the mod / FSO Settings / FSO build.

Now what I don't understand which executable (the "mod default") WGS used before I forced this on it, if not any from the four directories above. Well, so be it. It works.
