DISABLE NATIVE SUPPORT OF FANATEC in Automobilista and rFactor 2

DISABLE NATIVE SUPPORT OF FANATEC in Automobilista and rFactor 2:

For all sim racer using Automobilista and Fanatec hardware (including OSW MMOS + Fanatec mod) don’t forget to DEACTIVATE  the native support of Fanatec LEDs/Digits. Since the latest patch of AMS they have added a basic implementation of the Fanatec LEDs/Digits and you need, like for rF2, to disable completely this feature.

See the plugins page and faq for more info

Follow this link bellow to deactivate the NATIVE SUPPORT OF FANATEC in Automobilista and rFactor 2 by editing your controller INI (or JSON for rFactor 2)

rFactor 2:

Automobilista:

REMINDER: This is very important to deactivate the native support to let SLIMax Manager Pro manages the leds and Digits of your steering wheel using your favorite simulation.

SLIMax Manager Pro v3.4.6.2 Ready For DiRT 4!

DiRT 4 is now OUT and I strongly suggest to all the latecomers to get the full installer of SLIMax Mgr Pro v3.4.6.2 and CHECK FOR UPDATE to get the latest plugins and enjoy this new opus from Codies with your sim-rig (if you already have the v3.4.6.2 installed just hit the Check For Update menu as usual ).

Attention: the UDP API has changed.
PAUSE the game in this first release of DiRT 4 is a TRUE PAUSE which means the telemetry data are freezed during the pause and you no longer can change the SLIMax car setup during the pause. Set the car setup before entering the stage as you do it in real life.

TO ALL DEVELOPERS/COMPETITORS USING UDP API
I strongly suggest to REVIEW YOUR CODE or unexpected things may happen during the pause!

Cheers,
z

SimracingBay Simucube OSW Kit! Recommended!

Hi,
We received at EKSIMRacing  the Simucube OSW Kit from SimRacingBay yesterday and today we’re already on track! 🙂

The feeling is absolutely fantastic and the more I improve the ffb parameters the more the feeling is accurate and detailed.

Our display devices and emulators manager SLIMax Manager Pro works really well with Fanatec Teensy mod and it is great to be able to use the Fanatec rim “as is” with the QR adapter provided in option with the OSW Kit.

SLIMax Manager Pro takes care of LED, 3xDigits panel and CSP Motors of Fanatec hardware as well as all display devices (USB display devices from SIM Display, SRW-S1, SLI-PRO, …) and emulators (VDASH-EMU) connected.

I strongly recommend the OSW Kit from SimRacingBay to all guys who want to enjoy quickly their sim-rig with a PRO Direct Drive solution.

REMINDER: using the Fanatec hardware with SLIMax Manager Pro is 100% free!
