Attention, the package overwrites existing files if you have modified setups or scripts, make a backup before installing.

Plugin Installation:
- Select menu "Check For Update" to get the latest plugins, read this sticky post (http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?topic=2289.0)

IMPORTANT:
An rFactor2 bridge dll 32Bit AND 64Bit VERSION  (rFactor2SLIBridge.dll AND rFactor2SLIBridge_x64.dll) must be installed in ..rFactor2\Bin32\Plugins\
and
..rFactor2\Bin64\Plugins\ directory to work

also, the bridge MUST BE ACTIVATED in rFactor 2 PLUGINS/DIFFICULTY options (see the screenshot below)


The installer will try to install it in default location for you but if it didn't find your rF2 installation you can use SLIMax Manager to install it manually. Read the instructions below to install the bridges manually

You can no longer use the NEW 64Bit version of SLIMax Mgr plugin (rFactor2PlugX64) with the 32Bit version of rFactor2.

The new rFactor2PlugX64 plugin will warn you if you are mixing 64Bit with 32Bit platform

Attention, ISI rules related to rF2 64bit change again in BUILD 789 so update your rFactor2 installation to BUILD 789 and  follow the instruction below:


**************************************************************
      Again this is ONLY for rFactor BUILD 789 or greater
**************************************************************


Installation in rFactor2:
1) Do a clean install of SLIMax v3.4.1.0 or greater, the full installer will install AUTOMATICALLY the new rF2 bridge if it found your rFactor2 installation



Follow these instructions if you want to install the bridge manually:

Use the helper integrated in SLIMax Manager, open the Plugins Manager and click the rFactor2 Plugins Options button

(http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=2806.0;attach=4546;image)

or open the rFactor2 app directory (by default in C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2 ) and copy the bridge in the correct directory (rF2 bridges can be found inside SLIMax Manager directory):

rFactor2SLIBridge.dll must be moved to C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2\Bin32\Plugins

(http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=2806.0;attach=4537;image)

and

rFactor2SLIBridge_x64.dll must be moved to C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2\Bin64\Plugins

(http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=2806.0;attach=4539;image)


Attention, the path is different if you have the rFactor 2 Steam version:

Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin64\Plugins\rFactor2SLIBridge_x64.dll

or

Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin32\Plugins\rFactor2SLIBridge.dll

rFactor 2 plugins have been tested successfully on Steam platform and works fine.

IMPORTANT, you have to install the rFactor 2 bridge manually.
Open the Plugins Manager
Select the rFactor 2 plugin
Click the Plugin Options
Click install bridge and choose rFactor2.exe in bin32 or bin64 (depending your windows platform) of your rFactor2 steam in steamapps directory
