    Hello,

    I have a problem when i need to be the driver with the driver swap system: i launch the TrackIR5 software,i go on the server, i select in the network settings "Spectate -> ON" and then i click on race , i do all the procedure to get the control of the car, then i'm in the car with the controls, BUT my TrackIR 5 isn't working (the 2 leds on the trackir are on but i can't move my head in game), if someone can help me.

    Thanks,
    Eater

    Only thing I can think of is using the toggle hardware plugins button. Turn it off than on, I think the default key is H.

    @Coutie I would have guessed G, I think H is headlights :)

    The last time (a couple of years maybe) I did a driver swap race Simvibe wouldn't work when joining as a spectator.
    It would be interesting to find out if anyone else has had similar issues of plugins not working in driver swaps.

    Indeed, as far as i remember TrackIR (& other plugins) has never been working after a swap.
    Not sure but I believe it is related to the Spectator mode not calling certain plugin function(s).
    Would be curious to know if anyone has tested with VR, then ?

    thanks all but i think @SRGP is right : "as far as i remember TrackIR (& other plugins) has never been working after a swap."

    I guess I'll chime in here.

    Please, S397, fix this. I love my head tracking, and it's very disappointing to lose it in a multidriver situation

    Same here with TrackNoIR! It is very unfarvoable to recognize this in an Event, that you can turn your head, but the view did not change :(
    Maybe it´s no big problem to activate this plugin even in spectator mode...
