The SLIMax Manager Pro with Thrustmaster device connected WITHOUT any shiftlights interface or Virtual Dash EMUlator will NOT START.

A license is obviously needed if you add to your rig as a second screen like an USB Display device (SLI-PRO, SIM Race F1, etc) or the Android/Windows Virtual Racing Display Emulator VDASH-EMU (check the website old gen. EMU SIMRF1-EMU is also available for FREE!!! ).


– download and install the latest SLIMax Manager Pro (Check for update to keep your install up to date)


– configure the sim / games to send telemetry data and to disable Thrustmaster native support (if needed)

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

It is recommended to follow the basic steps above, use the Default Thrustmaster 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.
