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.

Live For Speed (LFS) Installation?

LFS installation:

SLIMax Manager Pro is already configured to work with LFS.

LFS Plugin Activation:
check if the plugin is activated first (see how to activate a plugin see here ). The LFS Plugin is ACTIVATED by default.

Edit LFS Configuration in LFS directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\LFS\cfg.txt:

OutGauge Mode 2
OutGauge Delay 1
OutGauge IP 127.0.0.1
OutGauge Port 30005
OutGauge ID 0

start lfs with insim command (see picture attached) or create a shortcut
“C:\Program Files (x86)\LFS\LFS.exe” /insim=29999

AND activate the Qualify on single player mode (see pictures)

Do not forget to set the QUALIFY delay or SLIMax Mgr will never receive the necessary info to work with LFS.

 

if you know what you are doing and need to change the default setting, open the Plugin Manager to edit LFS Plugin Options:

Doing a Super Clean installation?

US/UK:

Do a super clean installation:

1) download the latest SLIMax Manager Pro, go HERE
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:

1) télécharger la dernière SLIMax Manager Pro, rendez-vous ICI
2) désinstaller l’ancienne version de SLIMax Manager

clean_install_keep_licenses

3) vous pouvez supprimer en toute sécurité le répertoire SLIMax Manager ou ouvrir le répertoire SLIMax Manager et supprimez tous les dossiers et ne garder que répertoire licences seulement – voir la capture d’écran ci-dessus
4) installer la nouvelle version en exécutant le programme d’installation en tant qu’administrateur et suivez les instructions la première fois que vous lancez le SLIMax Manager Pro pour obtenir votre licence automatiquement et
5) pour exécuter l’Auto-Updater pour obtenir le logiciel le dernier (plugins, applications, configurations, etc.)

Dans certains cas SLIMax Manager Pro a besoin d’être lancer en tant qu’administrateur aussi, lire le F.A.Q. si vous avez des problèmes de permissions avec Windows 8/8.1/10 voir ICI

IMPORTANT:
NE PAS OUBLIER, de lancer l’auto-updater la première fois que vous lancez SLIMax Mgr Pro lorsque vous êtes invité à le faire,
Vérifiez les BRIDGES des Plugins si vous faites une mise à jour à partir d’une ancienne version du SLIMax Manager et les installer manuellement si nécessaire. PiBoSo, Reiza, ISI rFactor / rFactor2, EURO / American Truck, etc. toutes ces simulations ont besoin d’un BRIDGE pour fonctionner avec le SLIMax Mgr Pro ( les BRIDGES sont dispo dans le répertoir ..\Program Files (x86)\SLIMax Manager Pro\sli_bridges\ ). Consultez les pages de plugin pour plus d’informations en rapport avec les BRIDGES …

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:

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.

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…

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   ):
