NEW Plugins For Sector 3 RaceRoom Racing Experience BETA are out!

Plugins for RaceRoom Racing Experience (R3E) BETA are out (2019-03-25)

 

Hi,
Those plugins are for SLIMax Manager Pro and SLIMax Manager Fanatec Edition and can be used ONLY with the latest PUBLIC BETA of R3E. There’s no backward compatibility with the current R3E API and the next R3E version so you need to replace the current SLIMax plugins to enjoy your sim rig with the BETA. Plugin for MotionMax Manager are available on demand.

THESE PLUGINS ARE NOT WORKING WITH THE REGULAR VERSION OF R3E, ONLY WORK WITH THE PUBLIC BETA

Check this topic to download the R3E plugins for the BETA (you need to be fully registered as PRO, Beta-tester, GOLD Premium to get access to this area):

http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?topic=4680.0

Check this topic above regularly to get the latest R3E plugins they will be updated at regular basis, the dev team of R3E seems to continue to add more telemetry data and the API is not final.

Cheers,
z

DiRT Rally 2.0 And Heusinkveld Sim Handbrake

Hi,

if you recall correctly I gave you in this blog in 2017 the tip to get access to the ffb of your Simucube FW and MMOS and during the release of DiRT Rally 2.0 what about accessing the deazone and saturation of your Heusinkveld Sim Handbrake?

Quit DR2

Add the line below in your

..\Steam\steamapps\common\DiRT Rally 2.0\input\devices\device_defines.xml

<device id="{8B8210C4-0000-0000-0000-504944564944}" name="he_hb" priority="100" type="handbrake" />

extract the zip on the desktop and copy the file he_hb.xml attached onto the folder

..\Steam\steamapps\common\DiRT Rally 2.0\input\actionmaps\

 

he_hb.zip

The deadzone should stay at zero but now you can setup the saturation to suit your needs.

Cheers,
z

[NEW] MotionMax 5 Manager (BETA 5DOF Simulator)

MotionMax 5 Manager 5DOF
Simulator Software Management
By Zappadoc ©2019 All Rights Reserved.
(MMX5 BETA Launched – 2019-03-20)

 

 

MotionMax 5 Manager,a more conventional 5DOF simulator management than the MMX 6DOF with 3 distinctive layers, the CORE layer, the SURGE layer and the Traction Loss (TL) layer.

MMX5 takes the benefit of  the V.P.I. system (Vehicle Physics Interpreter) and yaw dynamics (TL) motion code of MotionMax 6. An ultra accuracy and efficiency motion result in all car categories (F1 and other open wheel categories/Endurance/Proto/GT/Rally/Kart) with more than 60 games/simulations supported.

The CORE layer is a 3DOF system with 4 actuators including Pitch, Roll and Heave management.

The optional SURGE layer on top of the CORE give you huge acceleration and braking by sliding backward/forward on top of the CORE platform using one or two actuator.

The TL Layer is a solid base under the CORE layer with a pivot on the front and an arched rail allowing the whole structure to be moved by an actuator.

The MotionMax 5 Manager is currently in beta, contact us if you’re a manufacturer and want us to add the support of your motion platform 3/4/5DOF to MotionMax 5 Manager.

Cheers,
z

IMPORTANT: READ THIS CAREFULLY IF YOUR OWN A FANATEC FORMULA V2
You CAN’T enjoy the led of your Fanatec Formula V2 steering wheel with SLIMax Manager Pro or any other 3rd party tool WITHOUT DISABLING THE NATIVE FANATEC SUPPORT IN GAME SETTINGS

In other words, all games which not include a way to disable the Fanatec Led/Display cannot be used. This includes RaceRoom Racing Experience which have a bug and fails to disable Fanatec native management even if the setting is OFF… We asked Sector3 to fix it but did not received a reply yet.

To disable the native management of Fanatec LED/Display, read the FAQ “How to configure your games”

 

Assetto Corsa Competizione AE Release 6 is OUT!

Hey,

ACC Release 6 is out and fortunately for Fanatec owners you can now disable the Fanatec native support in the game settings to enjoy your display/led with SLIMax Manager Pro.

 

Unfortunately, the release 6 of ACC contains a bug in max rpm engine value which seems to be hard-coded to 9000rpm but the current cars not exceed 7700rpm, so I created several basic SLIMax setups for ACC to workaround this issue.

The new version of SLIMax Mgr v3.4.6.5 is required to get the updates
Select menu “Check For Update” to get the latest plugins
and hit the button “Download And Install All“.
