2 Support Forum Information

Do I need to register my device to get a full access to the forum and reply or create a new topic in forum?

Yes. You need to register your device or emulator to get your license and create a support account. Read THIS for more details on pricing.



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 ).

IMPORTANT: Read Before Posting in forum:

– please don’t PM or EMAIL us for support (read FAQ for more details, use EMAIL for license/registration question only ),
– respect all the stuff that has been done here by searching/reading before posting,
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.
– obviously, any competitor software must be closed (beware some are running in background) to run SLIMax Manager with  your Fanatec CSW, CSL, CSR, Porsche or others, Logitech G27/G29, VDASH-EMU, SLI-EMU, SRF1-EMU or any USB SLI Display devices successfully.

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.

if you do not received instructions email to get your license, check the SPAM or JUNK mailbox first to get it and obviously, feel free to drop us a line by email if you still didn’t get the notification within 24h.

yes EK is no longer active and Zappadoc is now the lead dev of EKSimracing in charge of all projects, forum and website maintenance ( announced the September 06, 2011 ).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