SLIMax Manager Pro is referenced in the Windows 10 Firewall as “slimaxmgrpro64.exe” or “Take the Control Of Your Gameware” (the tag line instead of the app name…)

You may have to check ( or even delete) the corresponding rules.

DO NOT forget to restart after changing settings in the firewall

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 7

Win 10
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RnImAYTDc6w

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!

– download and install the latest SLIMax Manager Pro ( don’t forget to check for update to keep your install up to date)

DOWNLOAD SLIMax Manager Pro

– configure the sim / games to send telemetry data and to disable Fanatec native support (if needed)
CLICK TO CONFIGURE YOUR SIMULATION OR GAME

– run the manager
– run the sim or game
Enjoy! 🙂

It is recommended to follow the basic steps above, use the default Fanatec setup, enjoy with your sim rig and with your favorite game or simulation (SLIMax Manager Pro supports more than 60 game/simulation) and later start to customize your setup to suit your needs.

 

PorscheR918-M_03

 

QUICK INFO AND TIPS:

The Basic Options:

Select the Basic Setup Options to change the unit (MPH/KPH), change the Pit limiter, Shiftlights or Shiftpoints method.

 

More info on Basic Options settings are available in User Guide, HERE

 

Advanced Setup Options:

Check the video tutorials, doc and F.A.Q. to go further and learn how to customize your setup to suit your needs.

Among hundred of functions for customizing your setup, here are the functions specific to Fanatec hardware.

Shift Left/Right
-> surround the gear value with the chosen chars on OSP (Optimal ShiftPoints ) to use with a special OSP method (named FanaFoo 😉 )

Gear Shock Effect
-> Active the base wheel motors on shifting

Throttle Effect*
-> Active the CSP v3 throttle rumble motor under specific condition

*see below the notes related to throttle/abs effect

Using Fanatec 7 way encoder switch

fanatec_select_function

 

In advanced options you can activate the Wheel Angle Database to let SLIMax Manager Pro changes your degree of rotation of your wheel (wheel angle) automatically. More info on Wheel Angle are available, HERE.

 

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

When CSP is connected to the Base wheel:

2016-10-24_162029

When it is connected to USB Port as a standalone Pedals Set

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 3.4.6.2 or greater, The Fanatec v289+ 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

2016-10-31_215621

 

Fanatec Teensy LC Mod:

How does the software cost?

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.

Where to find the software features?

Read the readme, the FAQ, the forum post and learn. All specs and features are based on rFactor 2 and iRacing as they have the most complete sim-racing API. Other software may contain some or all of the functions implemented for these simulation. It depends on the simulation or game API (APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE, i.e. Car and Contextual telemetry data and information provided by the simulation or game).
