IMPORTANT:
DO NOT FORGET, to launch the auto-updater the first time you launch SLIMax Mgr Pro when you are prompted to do so,
Check the Plugin Bridges if you upgrade from an old version of SLIMax Manager and install them manually if needed.  PiBoSo, Reiza, ISI rFactor / rFactor2, EURO/American Truck, etc. all this simulations need a bridge to work with SLIMax Mgr Pro (all the BRIDGES are available in ..\Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\sli_bridges\ directory ).

How does the software cost?

 

 

  • Translate:

Why I have to make a minimum donation? and why a donation?

EKSIMRacing ask you to make a minimum donation to get your license and for using the software because building a professional-grade software take a lot of time (SLIMax Manager development started in 2009), maintaining the website, forums, domain name and hosting cost money, also, gamegear such steering wheels, pedals sets, buttons-boxes and hardware parts (switches, buttons, encoders, etc.) for testing the hardware with the manager cost money (fortunately we have some great partnerships that reduce the bill) and obviously, buying/updating games/simulations licenses cost money as well.

The software is continuously improved to give you more control on your rig and in the same time to build your setup more easily which increase greatly your immersion and gaming experience.

Ok, but why a donation?
simply because it’s all about SIM RACING PROJECT and the SUPPORT of the project by their users.
A minimum donation is required to contribute to above mentioned costs but you can also donate more to support the project and more importantly, to take part to the project. All suggestions from members are discussed in forum and implemented asap in the manager if it’s possible and consistent.

EKSIMRacing mission since all these years has been also to discuss with major simulations/games Developer Teams to improve their API ( ISI, Codemasters, Simbin, Project CARS, A.C., etc.), rFactor2 and F1 201X and GRID 2/Autosport series are some great example of improvement. And for sure, all our competitors are happy to benefit from these improvements. 😉

If you own a BU0710, Fanatec Hardware (including CSW Base v1 / v2 / v2.5, CSR, CSL, Porsche, CSP V1/V2/V3 / V3i, shiftter, Handbrake, etc.) or a Logitech G27/G29/G920 steering wheel and want to give SLMax Manager Pro a try, don’t wait, it’s FREE for using the wheel with the software alone and if you find it useful and/or want to add an USB display device or a display emulator to your rig make a donation to support the project and get your license.


A minimum contribution of $5 is required
to get your usb device or virtual display emulator license

After your donation you will be redirected to the registration page (you can also access the registration page from the Registration Help) to create your support account,

You can access freely to all documentation, FAQ, video tutorials and the public part of the software support forum in read only mode.

As soon as you created a support account, you get a read / write access to all software support forums, exclusive information and exclusive content (like beta software, VDASH-EMU texture packs, EMU Custom templates, tips and tricks,… ).

Permission issue, I can’t save config files, settings are not persistent or not saved, access denied to SLIMax Mgr directories, why?

This is the most common and the most annoying issue of Windows 8/8.1 and in some part Win 10

Permission issue, OSP 150 displayed, I can’t save config files, settings are not persistent or not saved, access denied to SLIMax Mgr directories, why?

Even though I am an administrator I am unable to access everything on my computer. please explain step-by-step for windows 8 what I need to do in order to get full access?

Basically you DON’T have the ownership of your hard drive where SLIMax Mgr Pro is installed, Read this FAQ from Microsoft:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2623670

Also, Windows Firewall, Antivirus or Windows User Account Control (UAC ) doesn’t allow SLIMax Manager to write into its directory or simply doesn’t allow the app to communicate with emulators or game or simulation

Check your Windows Firewall rules related to SLIMax Manager Pro exe (and sometime named by its description “Take The Control Of Your Gameware”). delete all rules before re-installing the manager.

disable UAC solves the problem (You must reboot your computer for the changes to take effect).
Keep the UAC activated with an installation on Program Files directory ..\Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\ seems to work as well (this is the default installation location).

see here how to disable UAC (it is strongly recommended that you turn off UAC   ):

Win 10

This is applicable to Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, to solve your permission issue, install SLIMax Mgr Pro as Admin and run the app as administrator :

Need additional license after OS or ROM update?

Applicable to Android EMU Version only:

Your license is no longer recognized after a reset or a major update of your Android System OS. Unfortunately, due to the design of this OS… it is normal.

We are sorry by this inconvenience. However, we will never ask you to update your Android System and we recommend to dedicate your Android Phone/Tablet to your EMUlators.

An std OTA update from google usually not alter your Android EMU installation (it depends),

but  if you do a full backup of the APP+DATA before you will be able or not to restore your EMU installation after an OS update… otherwise an additional Android emulator license will be needed.

NO, the update VDASH-EMU does not change anything in your license and it remains valid

Yes, the Android system update or phone / tablet change requires a new license called “Additional”

YES, every additional PC / LAPTOP running  VDASH-EMU for Windows needs a VALID license called “Additional” to work at FULL SPEED with simulations or games

YES, you have LAG if you do not have a VALID licenses installed for all phone / tablet / PC using the VDASH-EMU on your LAN (you can use up to 4 VDASH-EMU simultaneously).

So before making a “bug/registration report” check if the serial number you registered matches the one you currently have… and if needed get an “additional” license!

– run the sim or game
Enjoy! 🙂

fanatec_select_function

 

CSP PEDALS SET:

fanatec_clubspot_pedal_v2 fanatec_clubspot_pedal_v3

To take the full benefit of the SLIMax Manager Pro management of your CSP Rumble Motors (Brake and Throttle), connect your CSP directly to PC USB port (recommended) or on wheel base.

Attention: you can’t use the Pedals Set alone with SLIMax Manager Pro, you need at least ONE display device like the Fanatec CSW Base Wheel or any other supported devices display (Fanatec CSW, CSL, Porsche, Logitech G27, G29, SIM Race LCD, SIM Race GT, SIM Race F1, SIM Race  Deluxe, SIM Race PRO, Steelseries SRW-S1, SLI-F1, SLI-M, SLI-PRO) or the VDASH-EMU Emulator for Android, Windows or Linux.

 

CSP-V3_03M

In advanced options activate the ABS or/and Throttle effect*

When CSP is connected to the Base wheel:

2016-10-24_161926

2016-11-03_133130

*Don’t forget to activate the AXE 1 corresponding to the throttle pedal of CSP v3

 

Activate the Analog Joystick (axe 4) as a temporary switch

PorscheR918_analog_joystick

 

Change/Add Display Information on Fanatec Central Panel:

 

THE RIM REV LED OF P1:

CSL base and P1 rim are fully supported. You can use the P1 RIM Rev Led in standard mode (by default) to get shiftlights feedback or set a general option to switch to “FLAG MODE” using Yellow, Blue and Red color to warn you when FIA FLAG‘s or Engine Warning or Low Fuel is set…

CSL_P1

IMPORTANT: be sure to have the latest SLIMax Manager Pro version 3.4.6.1v or greater, The Fanatec v283+ beta driver installed on base v2/v2.5 and latest CSL driver before activating this feature. However, this is a beta driver it’s always better to wait until the release of the final version of the Fanatec driver to activate the option.

if the BIG RIM Led of P1 is allowed in General Options then this acts like 3 warning LEDs (blue, yellow and red):

The corresponding index of each led are:

index 1 for blue
index 2 for Yellow
index 3 for Red

In this example below the index 2 (yellow color) is checked to lit up on low fuel warning

How to get started and install SLIMax Manager?

Getting Started With SLIMax Manager:

 

Getting Started With SLIMax Manager

 Check the video TUTORIALS (or click the image above)

 

IMPORTANT: All these steps are explained in details in the FAQs, so take time to read them.

How does the software cost?

 

 

  • Translate:

Why I have to make a minimum donation? and why a donation?

EKSIMRacing ask you to make a minimum donation to get your license and for using the software because building a professional-grade software take a lot of time (SLIMax Manager development started in 2009), maintaining the website, forums, domain name and hosting cost money, also, gamegear such steering wheels, pedals sets, buttons-boxes and hardware parts (switches, buttons, encoders, etc.) for testing the hardware with the manager cost money (fortunately we have some great partnerships that reduce the bill) and obviously, buying/updating games/simulations licenses cost money as well.

The software is continuously improved to give you more control on your rig and in the same time to build your setup more easily which increase greatly your immersion and gaming experience.

Ok, but why a donation?
simply because it’s all about SIM RACING PROJECT and the SUPPORT of the project by their users.
A minimum donation is required to contribute to above mentioned costs but you can also donate more to support the project and more importantly, to take part to the project. All suggestions from members are discussed in forum and implemented asap in the manager if it’s possible and consistent.

EKSIMRacing mission since all these years has been also to discuss with major simulations/games Developer Teams to improve their API ( ISI, Codemasters, Simbin, Project CARS, A.C., etc.), rFactor2 and F1 201X and GRID 2/Autosport series are some great example of improvement. And for sure, all our competitors are happy to benefit from these improvements. 😉

If you own a BU0710, Fanatec Hardware (including CSW Base v1 / v2 / v2.5, CSR, CSL, Porsche, CSP V1/V2/V3 / V3i, shiftter, Handbrake, etc.) or a Logitech G27/G29/G920 steering wheel and want to give SLMax Manager Pro a try, don’t wait, it’s FREE for using the wheel with the software alone and if you find it useful and/or want to add an USB display device or a display emulator to your rig make a donation to support the project and get your license.


A minimum contribution of $5 is required
to get your usb device or virtual display emulator license

After your donation you will be redirected to the registration page (you can also access the registration page from the Registration Help) to create your support account,

You can access freely to all documentation, FAQ, video tutorials and the public part of the software support forum in read only mode.

As soon as you created a support account, you get a read / write access to all software support forums, exclusive information and exclusive content (like beta software, VDASH-EMU texture packs, EMU Custom templates, tips and tricks,… ).

rFactor 2 Installation (including bridge):

The SLIMax Mgr bridge is a piece of code (dll plugin) that do the bridge with SLIMax Mgr and the simulation. The bridge do not manage any hardware and as such it can NOT be in conflict with your display or steering wheel or any hardware, this is just a “proxy” for telemetry data and can be safely installed.

SLIMax Manager installer copy the “bridge” dll for rFactor2 into  the correct directory if it detects your rFactor2 installation.

if for some reason the SLIMax Manager Installer didn’t found your rFactor2 installation you have to install the bridge manually.

Use the Plugin Manager to edit the plugin Options and install the corresponding bridge

2) uninstall the old version of SLIMax Mgr

clean_install_keep_licenses

3) you can safely delete the SLIMax Manager directory or  open SLIMax Manager directory and delete ALL folders and keep the licenses directory only – see the screenshot above)
4) install the new version by running the FULL INSTALLER as Administrator and follow instruction the first time you launch the SLIMax Manager Pro to get your license automatically
5) and then run the Auto-Updater to get the very latest software (plugins, apps, setups, etc.)

Sometime SLIMax Manager Pro needs to run as Administrator as well, read the F.A.Q.   if you have permission issue with Windows 8/8.1/10, read THIS

IMPORTANT:
DO NOT FORGET, to launch the auto-updater the first time you launch SLIMax Mgr Pro when you are prompted to do so,
Check the Plugin Bridges if you upgrade from an old version of SLIMax Manager and install them manually if needed.  PiBoSo, Reiza, ISI rFactor / rFactor2, EURO/American Truck, etc. all this simulations need a bridge to work with SLIMax Mgr Pro (all the BRIDGES are available in ..\Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\sli_bridges\ directory ). Check the plugin pages for more info related to plugin BRIDGE…

 

 

FRANCAIS:

Effectuez une installation SUPER CLEAN:

CHECK YOUR DEVICE BEFORE POSTING IN FORUM:

Check if your device is connected properly before asking for support.

If your device isn’t connected properly contact your hardware supplier as this is typically a hardware/firmware issue.

We do not provide hardware/firmware support.

thanks for your understanding.

Use the SLI-PRO or the SIM RACE Deluxe or SIM RACE F1 configuration app to see if your firmware is ok

you should have:

Version 0.22 or 0.23

 AND NOT *BOOTLOADER*

SLI-PRO FIRMWARE ISSUE:

In Devices and Printers window, you should see SLI-PRO Interface and not bootloader

(bootloader usually means that you need to reinstall your firmware ).

How to configure PiBoSo Games ( Kart Racing PRO, GP Bikes, World Racing Series)?

Kart Racing PRO, GP Bikes and World Racing Series are based on same core game and all titles need their “bridge” to work with SLIMax Manager. The bridge must be installed in the plugins directory of each games and is different for each game.

The SLIMax Mgr bridge is a piece of code (dll plugin) that do the bridge with SLIMax Mgr and the simulation. The bridge do not manage any hardware and as such it can NOT be in conflict with your display or steering wheel or any hardware, this is just a “proxy” for telemetry data and can be safely installed.

Kart Racing Pro

The bridge named “KRPSLIBridge.dlo” can be found in \Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\ directory and is normally installed automatically by SLIMax Mgr during the installation if the KRP directory is found.

If you want to install it manually move it to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Kart Racing Pro\plugins\” directory.

 

GP Bikes

The bridge named “GPBSLIBridge.dlo” can be found in \Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\ directory and is normally installed automatically by SLIMax Mgr during the installation if the GP Bikes directory is found.

If you want to install it manually move it to “C:\Program Files (x86)\GP Bikes\plugins\” directory.

 

World Racing Series

Do not activate GP BIKES plugin  and WRS plugin at the same time

The bridge named “WRSSLIBridge.dlo” can be found in \Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\ directory and is normally installed automatically by SLIMax Mgr during the installation if the GP Bikes directory is found.

To install it manually move it to “C:\Program Files (x86)\World Racing Series\plugins\” directory.

 

If you need to install it use the internal helpers included with SLIMax Manager version 3.3 or greater. Open the Plugins Manager and click the Plugin Options button:

 

How to install package, plugin, setup, scripts, etc. with SLIMax Mgr v2.2.4 or greater?

 

Since version 2.2.4 of SLIMax Manager you can install all elements by drag and drop the file onto SLIMax Mgr window directly. The software install automatically this type of files:

  • – package
  • Package contains plugins, setups, scripts, thumbnails,…
  • – license key
  • – plugin
  • – plugin thumbnail
  • – setup
  • – script

Attention: the package overwrites existing files if you have modified setups or scripts, do a backup before installing. Package can also be installed using “Install Package…” menu.

 2014-05-05_181653

 

IMPORTANT: you need to restart SLIMax Manager if you install new plugin and then ACTIVATE it.

Notes: since v3.1 of SLIMax Manager you no longer need to restart after plugins installation.

REMINDER: A package is also a ZIP container, to install manually a package change its extension .pkg to .zip and extract it like any zip archive.

 ** Plugins Updates are available to anyone from within SLIMax Mgr **

No display in iracing 64Bit (or other 64Bit simulation)?

This is a common error, do not mix 64Bit plugin and with 32Bit simulation. if your simulation is 64Bit run SLIMax Manager 64Bit.  if for some reason you need to run the simulation in 32Bit mode, use SLIMax Mgr 32Bit which can be found inside SLIMax Manager directory.

 

“rFactor Clone” installation (Reiza Marcas, FTruck, GSC, SRW, Superleague,..)?

 the SLIMax Mgr bridge is a piece of code (dll plugin) that do the bridge with SLIMax Mgr and the simulation. The bridge do not manage any hardware and as such it can NOT be in conflict with your display or steering wheel or any hardware, this is just a “proxy” for telemetry data and can be safely installed.

rFactor “Clone” = simulation based on rFactor gMotor renderer.

You need to  copy the rFactor “bridge” dll into ../Plugins/ directory of your “rFactor Clone” simulation. Use the internal helpers to install it automatically. Obviously the Hardware Plugin option in simulation or game settings must be allowed.

 

 Reiza

New Reiza titles (games and simulations like Game Stock Car, Formula FTruck, Game Petrobras de Marcas, etc. ) install automatically the SLIMax Manager bridge from their Sync System into Plugins directory of each game,
you should see the ReizaSLIMaxMgrBridge.dll and readme files in Plugins directory after sync and obviously the rFactorSLIBridge.dll can be removed.

SLIMax Manager installer version 3.4.2.6a or greater will check the Reiza bridge installation as well and delete the old rFactorSLIBridge dll if found.

Notes: if you still see rFactorSLIBridge.dll in Reiza plugin options after the update of SLIMax Mgr v3.4.2.6a or greater, delete the file ..\Documents\SLIMax Manager Pro\cfg\plugins_options.ecfg to reset the plugins preferences.

Fanatec and Conflict with competitors software

Some competitor software that manage SLI devices and/ or Fanatec CSW wheels are so badly coded that MUST BE UNINSTALLED to be able to use SLIMax Manager…

Reminder:
a TRUE BYPASS settings exists in SLIMax Manager to completely ignore Fanatec wheels management if you really want to use native game/sim implementation or competitors software… Restarting SLIMax Mgr is needed after setting the BYPASS to true for the change to take effect.

Why the ABS Effect not working with my Fanatec CSP?

FOR ALL ABS EFFECT Fanatic!! :)

 

 fanatec_clubspot_pedal_v3 fanatec_clubspot_pedal_v2fanatec_clubspot_pedal_v1

The true ABS Effect works ONLY  with simulation or game API that provide a DYNAMIC status level of ABS like Live For Speed

if you try this effect with a STATIC value of ABS level (almost all sim/games), this will not be a TRUE ABS effect but it can be cool as well, give it a try and you will see… ;)

Need latest version 3.4.6.1 of SLIMax Manager Pro and CSP (Fanatec Pedals Set V2/V3)

Important points to know about ABS Effect behavior:

  1. The ABS Effect needs a dynamic ABS Level value to work as A TRUE abs effect (Live For Speed provides this telemetry data for example)
  2. Activate the effect on other sim with static value result to vibrate the brake pedal when pressed and is called a “fake ABS Effect” but seems to be appreciated by Codemaster F1 fanboys ;)
  3. See the screenshots, the recommended value in Fanatec setup is 115 to 135 (120 is good) and obviously the setup must be selected

iRacing COMBO SETUP behaviors included

2014-05-05_170810

 

For your convenience, SLIMax Manager is provided with a COMBO SETUP for iRacing simulation that choose automatically the right settings for you depending the car you drive. This can be very useful as the shiftlights method, Optimal Shiftpoints and other settings are selected automatically to reflect the engine specs but the disadvantage is that any settings change made with SLIMax Mgr (i.e. in Basic or Advanced Options… ) will be discarded in favor of the COMBO SETUP which use a script to supersede all other settings…

2 solutions:

1) No change, you are happy with the current iRacing Combo Setup, it is good enough for you

2) Disable iRacing Combo, don’t choose the setup named …_iracing_combo.cfg and go to “Select Devices Setups” menu and choose the default settings for your device and create your own. See how to create a custom setup step by step FAQ.

Dual Colors Shiftlights?

You don’t need a script to display a dual green/red or red/blue shiftlights,
1) open the Advanced panel,
2) set your SHIFTLIGHTS METHOD method to 2 (percentage)
3) double-click RPM THRESHOLD PERCENTAGE to see the sliders and just shift left all values and set blue led to zero

See the FAQ here to learn how to change RPM curve

 2014-05-05_171815

Here is 2 screenshots above with Cadillac cts-v with custom dual led green/red shiftlights in action.

Here is 4 QUICK screenshots of the iRacing Riley Daytona Prototype car with a custom dual led red/blue shiftlights in action.

Change RPM threshold value with percentage shiftlights method?

SLIMax Manager v2.1 or greater introduce a new way to enter your percentage value for Shiftlights method 2

1) open Advanced Options panel 

2014-05-05_162043

2) select SHIFTLIGHTS > SHIFTLIGHTS_METHOD > percentage method 2

2014-05-05_163558

3) double-click RPM_THRESHOLD_PERCENTAGE tag or click the Edit Selection button to display the helper and change the RPM SHIFTLIGHTS CURVE  by using the sliders

2014-05-05_163945

2014-05-05_164004

 

4) don’t forget to Apply and Save your change

2014-05-05_164036

 

You can do the same thing with Absolute Method (3) using rpm value and not percentage.

 

Is it possible to have the gear showing with the limiter on?

Yes, open Advanced Options panel edit your setup and allow or disallow the Limiter char in Pit limiter section.

Manage left and right digits panels:

SLIMax Manager v2.1 or greater introduce a new wizard to chose with ease the information to display on left and right digits panel.

 Open Advanced Options panel , section DISPLAY and double-click the left or right display functions (or click Edit Selection button):

2014-05-05_093710

 

Note: if you don’t have any switch connected to your SLI-PRO device, choose the function by default in position 1

To delete unwanted function, select last line and click the button ‘-‘ and button ‘+’ to add one.

Shiftlights method 2 and RPM Wizard Tips:

** This tutorial works only with the latest version of SLIMax Manager **

You have to select the percentage method and configure your RPM threshold values.

1) open Advanced Options panel and select
settings > SHIFTLIGHTS >  SHIFTLIGHTS METHOD and then enter value: 2

2014-05-05_163558

2) double-click RPM THRESHOLD PERCENTAGE tag to show the Wizard panel and change value with sliders

2014-05-05_164004

 

 Check the presets to get a basic curve done quickly and then change the values with the sliders to suit your needs

Using the Button To char mapping wizard to simulate a keystroke:

We are going to use the new button to char mapping function (simulate a keystroke when pressing a button) included in SLIMax Manager using the wizard panel.

First download the latest version of SLIMax Manager (v2.2.0.5 or greater is required )
and follow the topic HERE to create a new custom settings for rFactor2 in our example.

1) open Advanced panel
2) select SLIPRO > BUTTONSCHARSMAPPING tag
3) set it to true
4) click APPLY button to apply your change
5) save your settings

 

6) now double-click the BTNCHARLIST tag to define the mapping

For our stupid example ;) we are going to map button 3 to key ‘H’ to toggle ON/OFF headlights

7) when you double-click the BTNCHARSLIST tag a wizard panel show up and let you choose:
a) the button from 1 to 16
b) the key
c) the delay in ms
d) the modifier SHIFT or ALT or CTRL

8 ) in our example we use the key ‘H’, the default delay 200ms and no modifier
9) click OK to save your change
10) APPLY the change to the TAG and save settings file

Now pressing button 3 of your SLI-PRO device toggle ON/OFF headlights in rFactor2

Obviously, the button 3 MUST NOT be assigned in the rFactor 2 simulation to avoid any conflict.

 

Create a custom settings file step by step:

For this example of creation of custom setup we are going to make a settings file for iRacing :

1) open Advanced Options panel

2014-05-05_162043

2) choose the default settings of your device by clicking the device icon on top shelf.

 2014-05-05_165506

3) use the button export to save a copy of the current settings file
4) and give it a name

2014-05-05_094227

 

5)  do your change and select your new custom setup in “Select Devices Setups” menu

2014-05-05_165930

Notes: it could be necessary to select “Update Setup List” to see your custom setup in the setups menu

Codemasters DiRT 3 PATCH Beware!

Since the last update 1.2 of Codemasters DiRT3, all motion simulators and outgauge software are not working anymore (those using extradata=”1” – extended UDP packet with information needed for SLI Devices).

Beware, DO NOT UPDATE any more your Codies games or downgrade if possible to continue using your rig. We are waiting for a new patch that will fix it…

ATTENTION: DiRT Showdown 1.0 seems to be affected by this nasty bug!

 

LFS Hot Lap challenge not working, why?

Impossible, Live For Speed API doesn’t allow to use outgauge info in hot lap challenge mode.

F1 2011 wont display race position?

Unfortunately the position is not included in the poor Codemasters API v1 of F1 2010/2011 games. SLIMax Mgr will not be able to display it. Upgrade to F1 2012 or greater, the Codemasters API v2 is more complete and includes Position, KERS, DRS etc..

Load settings for my simulation?

To load settings for your current simulation, for example iRacing:

select the appropriate settings file  in “Select Devices Setups” menu.

CHECK YOUR DEVICE BEFORE POSTING IN FORUM:

Check if your device is connected properly before asking for support.

If your device isn’t connected properly contact your hardware supplier as this is typically a hardware/firmware issue.

We do not provide hardware/firmware support.

thanks for your understanding.

Use the SLI-PRO or the SIM RACE Deluxe or SIM RACE F1 configuration app to see if your firmware is ok

you should have:

Version 0.22 or 0.23

 AND NOT *BOOTLOADER*

SLI-PRO FIRMWARE ISSUE:

In Devices and Printers window, you should see SLI-PRO Interface and not bootloader

(bootloader usually means that you need to reinstall your firmware ).

How to install package, plugin, setup, scripts, etc. with SLIMax Mgr v2.2.4 or greater?

 

Since version 2.2.4 of SLIMax Manager you can install all elements by drag and drop the file onto SLIMax Mgr window directly. The software install automatically this type of files:

  • – package
  • Package contains plugins, setups, scripts, thumbnails,…
  • – license key
  • – plugin
  • – plugin thumbnail
  • – setup
  • – script

Attention: the package overwrites existing files if you have modified setups or scripts, do a backup before installing. Package can also be installed using “Install Package…” menu.

 2014-05-05_181653

 

IMPORTANT: you need to restart SLIMax Manager if you install new plugin and then ACTIVATE it.

Notes: since v3.1 of SLIMax Manager you no longer need to restart after plugins installation.

Getting Started with Codemasters Proxy Server

Fantastic tutorial available created by MrPix from http://www.projectimmersion.com/

A recommended watching to get started with Codemasters Proxy Server ( CMPS ) and if you own a motion simulator or any sim-racing device NON SUPPORTED by SLIMax Manager:

Configure Race Room Racing Experience (R3E) From Sector3 Studios

rrr3e_download

The configuration is pretty simple as the “shared memory” flag (allow sending data that contains car telemetry and contextual info) is already activated.

You just need to deactivated the Fanatec Native support if you own a Fanatec steering wheel, goto control settings and map any button or keyboard Key to Fanatec LED/Display function to be able to switch OFF the native management (press several time until OFF is displayed) and let SLIMax Manager takes the control of your Fanatec wheel LEDS/DISPLAY.

Due to a bad management or bugs, only the DIGITS are set to OFF not the shiftlights, you have to edit your ControlSet in c:\Users\-username-\Documents\MyGame\Simbin\Your configuration… and set the tag below to

G27 Led range low=”0.0″ // Min: 0.00, Max: 1.00, Default: 0.81
G27 Led range high=”0.0″ // Min: 0.00, Max: 1.00, Default: 0.96

Led Display Enabled=”0″ // Steering Wheel Led Display Enabled

Deactivate the native management of CSP rumble motors will also prevent SLIMax Manager Pro to use the motors!! which is not cool!
We hope the R3E Developers will add asap a simple bypass of the native management of LEDS/DIGITS/MOTORS …

 

2015-07-16_192143

Now to CAP Frame Rate!?
Well, it seems in current version of R3E that you can’t limit the FPS to give some CPU to all other apps running in background, this is a serious limitation of the simulation… For now we suggest to activate the VSync in video settings if your monitors is under 60Hz…

Disable native support of FANATEC and G27 of rFactor 2

Disable Fanatec (CSW or others) / G27 native support of rFactor 2 to use SLIMax Manager Pro:

You must QUIT rFactor 2 first

open your rFactor 2 profile in /Documents/rFactor 2 folder or for Steam version in your ../Steam/steamapps/rFactor 2 directory
open UserData/Controller
and edit your current Fanatec profile to change:

Use Additional Hardware Features=”1” // Whether to use additional hardware features like steering wheel LEDs
Hardware 3Digit Display=”1” // If hardware has 3-digit display, 0=off, 1=gear, 2=speed

to

Use Additional Hardware Features=”0” // Whether to use additional hardware features like steering wheel LEDs
Hardware 3Digit Display=”0” // If hardware has 3-digit display, 0=off, 1=gear, 2=speed

Attention, the rFactor 2 settings in latest version are inJSON format and to disable the native management of Fanatec LEDs you have to change:

“Use Additional Hardware Features”:true,
to

“Use Additional Hardware Features”:false,

When OSP (Optimal Shift Point) is triggered?

Why the first time I enter the track OSP isn’t triggered when gear 4 and beyond are engaged?

1) OSP by default start with gear 2 and don’t use the last gear (you can change this in setup)
2) OSP by default use the MAX FORWARD GEARS AT STARTUP  info to determine the max forward gears of current car (almost all simulations API does not provide this info)
3) At startup OSP works only with gear 2 and 3, excepted if you change the MAX FORWARD GEARS AT STARTUP in your setup because the simulation API doesn’t give us the number of gears of current car

Conclusion, if you want to have an OSP up and ready at startup, you have two choices:
1) you drive only ONE type of car so you can change MAX FORWARD GEARS AT STARTUP with a fixed value (i.e. using always F1 cars = 7 )
2) you drive more than one type of car (i.e. GT and F1 ), so when you go on the track engage all gears before leaving the stand

IMPORTANT:
rFactor 2 and Project CARS API provide the max forward gears info, so they are not affected.

Individual brightness mode usage:

Attention, individual brigthness mode is not recommended, use GLOBAL brightness instead.

Individual brightness is available with SLI-PRO and SLI-M device

Go to Advanced Options panel to edit your setup and change these settings:

2014-05-05_184841

1) you CANNOT have global and individual brightness set together,
go to Advanced Options panel and set GLOBAL BRIGHTNESS to 0 (zero) to deactivate it

2) Each tag below define, with a comma delimited list, the brightness value of each led in range 1 to 8.
SHIFTLIGHTS RPM BRIGHTNESS (13 entries),
MARSHALL LED BRIGHTNESS (6 entries)
EXTERNAL LED BRIGHTNESS (5 entries)

3) Gear digit and the left/right digits panels are defined with 1 value from 1 to 8
CENTRAL GEAR BRIGHTNESS (1 entry),
RIGHT DISPLAY BRIGHTNESS (left panel, 1 entry)
LEFT DISPLAY BRIGHTNESS (right panel, 1 entry)

4) Optional: calibrate your device brightness by adjusting the maximum brightness value from 128 to 220 (default 140)
To calibrate your device, Choose the ‘Test Device…’ menu and check if the device do not reset by itself during the testing process, if it does, decrease the maximum value (personally I use 180 for SLIM and 150 for SLI-PRO, just so you know…).

** Your device should not FREEZE OR RESET by itself during the test **

SLIMax Manager do not recognize the device?

SLIMax Manager do not recognize ANYMORE the device?

if the SLIMax Manager didn’t recognize your device anymore and ask you for registration key this is NOT RELATED TO the software but more a firmware issue (sometime the firmware needs to be re-installed) or an hardware issue (cable, hub, usb port, ….).

Check this FAQ first to see if the device is correctly recognized by Windows, re-install the firmware if needed.

We do not provide hardware support, if it’s an hardware issue contact your hardware supplier directly.

 

SLIMax Manager do not recognize the device?

There’s 3 main causes if SLIMax Manager Pro do not recognize your device (obviously, windows recognizes your usb device and the device test has been successfully passed).

1) you didn’t double-check the registration form and provide a WRONG serial number
We need to generate a new SERIAL NUMBER, send a new donation with the good serial number and with a text “wrong SN registered” in Paypal comments

2) you didn’t double-check the registration form and provide a good serial number but the WRONG model of SLI Device (you choose SLI-PRO in place of SLI-M for example )
Contact us by email  with a short explanation (no need to register again)

3) you provide the right model of SLI device and the good serial number
You have a network communication issue and the license cannot be downloaded from our server. You need to check your Windows configuration and fix it.

So please DOUBLE-CHECK your SERIAL NUMBER and DEVICE or EMU TYPE when you register.

if you register from the SLIMax Manager Pro the type and SERIAL NUMBER will be automatically displayed.

Get Your License Key with SLIMax Mgr 3.2 or greater

Your license is AUTOMATICALLY downloaded and installed at startup by SLIMax Manager 3.4 or greate if it doesn’t find it locally,

if you are fully registered you normally don’t have to worry about license.

Why SLIMax Manager seems to require a license to use my Fanatec wheel?

Q: Why SLIMax Manager seems to require a license to use my Fanatec wheel (CSW, CSL, CSR, Porsche or others) ?

it displays the Registration Information panel with an empty list at startup before closing or without any mention of the Fanatec

this simply a problem with your Fanatec driver, in most case opening the Device game properties will reset the driver and fix it

(go to Windows Devices And Printers and right-click the Fanatec icon to display the Game Controller Settings and open the properties of your Fanatec),

2014-07-29_145935

sometime you need to re-install the Fanatec driver, check the Fanatec website to download the official driver.

If your Fanatec wheel is correctly installed and recognized you should see the name of the wheel in “Devices And Setups” menu.

What’s the main difference between application on Android that displays telemetry and an emulator?

What’s the main difference between application on Android that displays telemetry and an emulator?

The emulator has the same behavior as the real USB Device and emulate the FIRMWARE itself to send HID USB Reports through wifi network connection and obviously displays the information in the same way as the real device by drawing them dynamically on the screen. This is a challenge to get it working with NO LAG! because where the real device allows more than 1000 cycles of updates per second, Android allows on common smartphone less than 60 cycles/sec only…

I’m always fascinated when I read some comparisons of simple graphic apps for Android and SLI-PRO or SIM RACE F1 Emulators!  It’s like mixing apples and oranges.

EMUs literally simulate the REAL HARDWARE DEVICE behaviors…these graphic apps are nothing related to FIRMWARE EMULATION.

Using emulator let you give a try to the corresponding usb display device before buying or test some behaviors or new setups from  your testing configuration like a laptop before applying them to your sim rig… Obviously, if you dedicate a phone to the EMU on your rig it can fully replace the real hardware device.

EMUs are accurate, fast enough to be compared to real display device and cheap compared to the corresponding price of real usb device (a minimum donation of $5 is requested to get a license FOR ALL EMULATORS, the same license is usable with all emulators).

Installation SLIEmu APK step by step:

How to Install Android Hardware Emulator on your phone (SLI-EMU, SRF1-EMU, …):

1) take your phone/tablet and go to settings:

  • a) enable WIFI
  • b) select Applications > Allow Unknown Sources (check-box)
1 2 3

 

2) with your phone, launch Navigator and go to our blog to download SLIEMU

http://www.eksimracing.com/

 

3) click the notification to install SLIEMU application

 

4) open SLIEMU

 

5) click Options button to register and follow this FAQ

Register SLIEmu or SRF1-EMU in 3 steps:

The following information are valid for all Android/Windows/Linux emulators ( VDASH-EMU, SLI-EMU,…)

REMINDER: SRF1-EMU the SIM Race F1 emulator is now 100% FREE!

Read the FAQ to register EMU and Device

 

 

 

 

 

Using SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU with SLIMax Manager ( license key installation ):

Make sure your hardware is installed and recognized by Windows, SLIMax Manager will attempts to get your license online on first run. Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to download and install the license automatically.

* ATTENTION: your phone must connected to your local WIFI network (LAN) and you should be able to reach the phone with your PC using “ping” command with the IP address of the phone (your PC must also be connected to the same local network with WIFI or Ethernet cable).

*Check the video tutorial to install automatically your license key.

SLI-Emu and SRF1-EMU Common Errors:

Check your settings :

READ THIS FIRST: A common issue is a problem with Windows UAC / Permission so run SLIMax Manager as administrator to avoid any permission issue. see this FAQ HERE

1- SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU running on Android 2.2 or >

2- SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU must be ready and Waiting for SLIMax Manager before running the manager

3- WIFI on the phone must be enabled and ready (you should surf the net for example)

4- PC must be connected to Ethernet cable or WIFI on the SAME network as the phone

5- obviously, your license MUST be valid and inside ..\Documents\SLIMax Manager Pro\licenses\ directory. SLIMax Manager download and install automatically your license if it do not find it locally.

6- On the first failure of the connection, you disabled the detection of SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU at startup see this video tutorial to enable/disable detection of Emulator at statup HERE.

7- when running SLIMax manager the first time you should setup your firewall to allow communication between PC and Phone. Delete any rules that prevent SLIMax Mgr to communicate with your phone.

8- sometime you must restart SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU to be able to connect to. Do not deactivate SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU, quit SLIMax Manager first, restart SLI-Emu and start again SLIMax Manager. if needed go to your Android Phone settings and select Applications and then Force the emulator to stop.

9- in very complex network configuration you have to enter manually the IP of your PC, create a simple text file named “ip.ecfg” save it into  ..\Documents\SLIMax Manager Pro\cfg\ directory In this file enter one line with:

IP = x.x.x.x

#replace x.x.x.x by the IP of your PC (i.e. 192.168.0.100 )

10. your phone must be reachable by your PC before using SLIMax Manager and SLI-Emu or SRF1-EMU, use the command prompt (cmd.exe) to check your phone connectivity

Let say your phone IP is 192.168.0.100

– run cmd.exe
– and type:
ping 192.168.0.100

Google is your friend, check with google how to connect your phone on your local wifi network

 

11. if SLIMax Manager doesn’t recognize your sliemu.key, check the phone serial number

12. obviously, any competitor software must be closed (beware some are running in background) to run SLIMax Manager and the emulators successfully

 

Forcing the detection of your PC IP network:

ATTENTION:

Since version v2.0 of emulators and with SLIMax Manager Pro v3.4 you no longer need to enter your IP Just activate the wifi and launch the latest emulator version (make sure to select the correct WIFI configuration on your phone to be in the same network as SLIMax Manager Pro).

SYMPTOM:
Your phone with EMU cannot connect to the PC:
a) click the Menu button followed by “My IP and Serial Number” then click Go Back button of your Phone,
EMU displays IPDest: 0.0.0.0
b) you can PING successfully your phone IP address

ok so you have more than ONE network adapters in your PC and SLIMax Manager Pro do not detect the active one.

Deactivate your VPN if SLIMax Manager Pro do not detect your EMU.

SOLUTION:

ATTENTION, THIS SOLUTION IS NOT RECOMMENDED IF YOU HAVE A SIMPLE LOCAL NETWORK, it is preferable to fix your network issue than forcing the IP.

How to force SLIMax Mgr Pro to detect my PC IP:
create with Notepad a new text file with a line containing the IP = x.x.x.x (x.x.x.x must be replaced by your PC IP)
Let say your Phone IP is 192.168.0.156 and your PC IP is 192.168.0.155, so create a file and put this line into it:

IP = 192.168.0.155

and then save it inside /Documents/SLIMax Manager Pro/cfg/ directory with the name: ip.ecfg

Now SLIMax Manager will not trying to detect your PC IP but just read the ip.ecfg to get it.

IMPORTANTif you change your IP, change also ip.ecfg file or delete the file in cfg directory

Need additional license after OS or ROM update?

Applicable to Android EMU Version only:

Your license is no longer recognized after a reset or a major update of your Android System OS. Unfortunately, due to the design of this OS… it is normal.

We are sorry by this inconvenience. However, we will never ask you to update your Android System and we recommend to dedicate your Android Phone/Tablet to your EMUlators.

An std OTA update from google usually not alter your Android EMU installation (it depends),

but  if you do a full backup of the APP+DATA before you will be able or not to restore your EMU installation after an OS update… otherwise an additional Android emulator license will be needed.

NO, the update VDASH-EMU does not change anything in your license and it remains valid

Yes, the Android system update or phone / tablet change requires a new license called “Additional”

YES, every additional PC / LAPTOP running  VDASH-EMU for Windows needs a VALID license called “Additional” to work at FULL SPEED with simulations or games

YES, you have LAG if you do not have a VALID licenses installed for all phone / tablet / PC using the VDASH-EMU on your LAN (you can use up to 4 VDASH-EMU simultaneously).

So before making a “bug/registration report” check if the serial number you registered matches the one you currently have… and if needed get an “additional” license!

Get an Additional License

I have a license for SLI-M. Do I have to register and donate for the emu again?

yes, a minimum donation of $5 is required to get your emulator license.  This is a completely new software development and require the same time (even more) to develop for SLIMax Manager and mobile platform.

Reminder: Your license with SLIMax Manager Pro is valid for more than 60 games or simulations.

If I donate from my handy for the emu, there will be a deviceID transmitted. If I change my handy, do I have to register and donate again?

Applicable to Android EMU Version only:

2A. If I donate from my handy for the emu, there will be a deviceID transmitted.

not exactly. the encrypted message transmitted contains also the deviceID but not only, we call it SLIEmu serial number.
(this why you must follow the registration process from your phone after the installation of SLIEmu application, this is also the best way to know if the app works on your phone)

2B. If I change my handy, do I have to register and donate again?

logically YES as you are going to use a new device with SLIMax Manager and obviously with a new SLIEmu serial number, but if you do a full backup of the app+data on OS/ROM update, you will be able to restore it otherwise additional Android license is needed. See HERE for more info.

How does the software cost?

 

 

  • Translate:

Why I have to make a minimum donation? and why a donation?

EKSIMRacing ask you to make a minimum donation to get your license and for using the software because building a professional-grade software take a lot of time (SLIMax Manager development started in 2009), maintaining the website, forums, domain name and hosting cost money, also, gamegear such steering wheels, pedals sets, buttons-boxes and hardware parts (switches, buttons, encoders, etc.) for testing the hardware with the manager cost money (fortunately we have some great partnerships that reduce the bill) and obviously, buying/updating games/simulations licenses cost money as well.

The software is continuously improved to give you more control on your rig and in the same time to build your setup more easily which increase greatly your immersion and gaming experience.

Ok, but why a donation?
simply because it’s all about SIM RACING PROJECT and the SUPPORT of the project by their users.
A minimum donation is required to contribute to above mentioned costs but you can also donate more to support the project and more importantly, to take part to the project. All suggestions from members are discussed in forum and implemented asap in the manager if it’s possible and consistent.

EKSIMRacing mission since all these years has been also to discuss with major simulations/games Developer Teams to improve their API ( ISI, Codemasters, Simbin, Project CARS, A.C., etc.), rFactor2 and F1 201X and GRID 2/Autosport series are some great example of improvement. And for sure, all our competitors are happy to benefit from these improvements. 😉

If you own a BU0710, Fanatec Hardware (including CSW Base v1 / v2 / v2.5, CSR, CSL, Porsche, CSP V1/V2/V3 / V3i, shiftter, Handbrake, etc.) or a Logitech G27/G29/G920 steering wheel and want to give SLMax Manager Pro a try, don’t wait, it’s FREE for using the wheel with the software alone and if you find it useful and/or want to add an USB display device or a display emulator to your rig make a donation to support the project and get your license.


A minimum contribution of $5 is required
to get your usb device or virtual display emulator license

After your donation you will be redirected to the registration page (you can also access the registration page from the Registration Help) to create your support account,

You can access freely to all documentation, FAQ, video tutorials and the public part of the software support forum in read only mode.

As soon as you created a support account, you get a read / write access to all software support forums, exclusive information and exclusive content (like beta software, VDASH-EMU texture packs, EMU Custom templates, tips and tricks,… ).

Permission issue, I can’t save config files, settings are not persistent or not saved, access denied to SLIMax Mgr directories, why?

This is the most common and the most annoying issue of Windows 8/8.1 and in some part Win 10

Permission issue, OSP 150 displayed, I can’t save config files, settings are not persistent or not saved, access denied to SLIMax Mgr directories, why?

Even though I am an administrator I am unable to access everything on my computer. please explain step-by-step for windows 8 what I need to do in order to get full access?

Basically you DON’T have the ownership of your hard drive where SLIMax Mgr Pro is installed, Read this FAQ from Microsoft:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2623670

Also, Windows Firewall, Antivirus or Windows User Account Control (UAC ) doesn’t allow SLIMax Manager to write into its directory or simply doesn’t allow the app to communicate with emulators or game or simulation

Check your Windows Firewall rules related to SLIMax Manager Pro exe (and sometime named by its description “Take The Control Of Your Gameware”). delete all rules before re-installing the manager.

disable UAC solves the problem (You must reboot your computer for the changes to take effect).
Keep the UAC activated with an installation on Program Files directory ..\Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\ seems to work as well (this is the default installation location).

see here how to disable UAC (it is strongly recommended that you turn off UAC   ):

This is applicable to Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, to solve your permission issue, install SLIMax Mgr Pro as Admin and run the app as administrator :

Need additional license after OS or ROM update?

Applicable to Android EMU Version only:

Your license is no longer recognized after a reset or a major update of your Android System OS. Unfortunately, due to the design of this OS… it is normal.

We are sorry by this inconvenience. However, we will never ask you to update your Android System and we recommend to dedicate your Android Phone/Tablet to your EMUlators.

An std OTA update from google usually not alter your Android EMU installation (it depends),

but  if you do a full backup of the APP+DATA before you will be able or not to restore your EMU installation after an OS update… otherwise an additional Android emulator license will be needed.

NO, the update VDASH-EMU does not change anything in your license and it remains valid

Yes, the Android system update or phone / tablet change requires a new license called “Additional”

YES, every additional PC / LAPTOP running  VDASH-EMU for Windows needs a VALID license called “Additional” to work at FULL SPEED with simulations or games

YES, you have LAG if you do not have a VALID licenses installed for all phone / tablet / PC using the VDASH-EMU on your LAN (you can use up to 4 VDASH-EMU simultaneously).

So before making a “bug/registration report” check if the serial number you registered matches the one you currently have… and if needed get an “additional” license!
