2 Support Forum Information


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



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 upgrade after registering your device or EMU to GOLD Subscription?

How to renew/upgrade to GOLD Premium Subscription:



Optional Subscription to GOLD Premium:
If despite all the tutorials, faq and videos you need personal assistance or you enjoy the app and want to help EKSIMRacing projects, you can opt for the GOLD Premium subscription with a donation of $20 or higher.

As soon as you reach $20 or more donation your account will be upgraded to GOLD Premium (if this is not the case just send us a message and we will update your account). The GOLD Premium Subscription therefore includes two full licenses EMU (2x $10). It allows you to get access to all software support forums and exclusive content (templates, beta, setups, texture packs, etc.).

This contribution is recommended if you want a full access to forum and exclusive content and need a personalized assistance and allows EKSIMRacing to invest in hardware in order to test it with SliMax Manager Pro, paying simulations and games updates/licenses, to pay suppliers for the maintenance of web / forum and license servers to be available 24/24 7/7. It’s also a good way to take part by your suggestions to the EKSIMRacing projects. This contribution can be acquired at any time.

if your support subscription has expired, you need to renew your subscription, simply sign-in the support forum, edit your Profile and click the RENEW button.

if you already have a BRONZE subscription the simplest way is to register another device or emulator and reach the $20+ contribution. Your account will be automatically upgraded to GOLD Premium.

Upgrading to GOLD PREMIUM subscription is also the best way to support EKSIMRacing projects.

C’est une bonne manière également de participer par vos suggestions au projet d’EKSIMRacing. Cette contribution peut être acquise à tout moment.

si votre abonnement de support a expiré, vous devez renouveler votre abonnement. Connectez-vous au forum et editez vorte Profile puis cliquez sur le bouton RENEW.

Si vous possédez déjà un abonnement BRONZE, la façon la plus simple est d’enregistrer un autre appareil ou un émulateur et d’atteindre une contribution de 20 $ +. Votre compte sera automatiquement mis à niveau vers GOLD Premium.

La mise à niveau vers l’abonnement GOLD PREMIUM est aussi le meilleur moyen de soutenir les projets EKSIMRacing.

Se nonostante tutti i tutorial, le FAQ e i video presenti avessi bisogno di assistenza personalizzata oppure sei soddisfatto dell’applicazione e vuoi contribuire ai progetti EKSIMRacing, puoi optare per la sottoscrizione GOLD Premium effettuando una donazione di 20$ o superiore.

Non appena raggiungi i 20$ o più di donazione, il tuo account sarà elevato al livello GOLD Premium (se non vuoi ciò, basta inviarci un messaggio e ripristineremo il tuo account al livello precedente). La sottoscrizione GOLD Premium perciò include DUE licenze complete per Emulatore (2x $10). Ti consente anche di avere pieno accesso a tutto il forum di supporto e ai contenuti esclusivi (templates, beta, setups, texture packs, ecc.).

Tale contributo è raccomandato se, oltre ad ottenere l’accesso completo al forum e ai contenuti esclusivi, desideri ricevere assistenza personalizzata permettendo ad EKSIMRacing di investire ulteriormente nell’hardware da testare con SliMax Manager Pro, pagare le licenze e gli aggiornamenti dei simulatiori e dei giochi compatibili e dei fornitori e collaboratori che si occupano della gestione e manutenzione del sito e del forum del server delle licenze disponibile 24 ore su 24 tutto l’anno.

se la tua sottoscrizione è scaduta è necessario rinnovarla semplicemente facendo l’accesso al forum, aprendo il tuo profilo e cliccando il pulsante RENEW.

READ All sticky topics,
– game/sim should be up to date and match the current version requirement to work (see release notes and F.A.Q. ),
– the Windows Control Panel “Game Controllers” or Windows Devices Must recognize your USB device,
– SLI USB Device owner, launch SLI Manager and select Testing Device menu to test your unit,
– check the software with default parameters first (without changing any line in the config file),
– topic/post are moderated, this typically involves a member posting a topic or reply and requiring it to be approved before the other can see it.

Almost ALL software issue with latest version are due to a bad installation, a misconfiguration or a misunderstanding of the FAQ. So please, read the FAQ carefully and everything will be ok.

is EK no longer active in sim-racing community?

yes EK is no longer active and Zappadoc is now the lead dev of EKSimracing in charge of all projects, forum and website maintenance ( announced the September 06, 2011 ).


How do I report a bug (or supposed to be a bug)?

SLIMax Manager has reached the “STABLE” Level which means no major bug.

First, try to reproduce the bug to identify it.
Search in FAQ or forum to see if the topic has been already discussed.
Then, find the right section in the forum and write your bug reports with a lot of details.
adding pictures and/or video could be necessary in some case. Keep in mind I can’t fix a bug that I can’t catch. so, more specific you are more it can be fixed quickly. 😉
