Why I have to make a minimum donation? and why a donation?

EKSIMRacing since 2007 works as a foundation (non profit organization) to promote the sim-racing around the world and invites their members to take part to the project by making contribution. EKSIMRacing invites you to make a minimum donation to get your license for using the software because building a professional-grade software takes a lot of time and money (software development started in 2008), Maintaining the website, software support, domain name and hosting cost money, also, gamegear such steering wheels, pedals sets, buttons-boxes and hardware parts for testing the hardware with the manager cost money (fortunately we have some great partnerships which reduces 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 PROJECTS and the support of projects by their users.
A minimum donation is required to contribute to above mentioned costs but you can also donate more to support the projects and more importantly, to take part to the projects. All suggestions from members are discussed and implemented asap in the software 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.
