UPDATED: SLIMax Manager Pro and SLIMax Fanatec Edition Updated Today!

 

SLIMax Manager Pro and SLIMax Fanatec Edition Updated Today!

CHANGELOG 2019-06-06:

– compiled with the new Fanatec SDK v3.9

Good News! The FLAG LED of Fanatec Formula V2 on CSW Base v2.0 are now fully supported! in addition to all newer wheel bases (CSW V2.5, Podium DD Series, CSL Elite v1.1 ).

ATTENTION: The latest driver v336 + latest Base v2.0 Firmware v656+ is required to enjoy all features of your Fanatec Formula V2 steering wheel with the CSW Base v2.0. This new driver is available on Beta Driver area of Fanatec website

To get the latest Plugins/Software for SLIMax Manager,
run the manager and select menu « Check For Update… »
and then click the « Download And Install All  » button

 

UPDATED: Unfortunately we found an issue without workaround yet with latest driver/firmware of CSW Base v2: the OLED Display of the Fanatec Formula V2 rim on CSW Base v2 not working properly and stays blank under some circumstance, the OLED of the McLaren rim on CSW Base v2 works fine…

 

NEW UPDATE TODAY: I found the bug, this is a performance issue of the combo CSW Base v2 + Formula V2 rim with latest driver/firmware v336 which needs more CPU cycles to refresh the OLED display correctly. The previous driver/firmware v335 on this combo works fine (but without FLAG LED obviously).

 

 

WORKAROUND: if you downgrade your Base v2 to driver v335 with previous wheel base firmware OLED will work again but the LEDs are not working with apps compiled with latest Fanatec SDK v3.9 like the latest SLIMax Manager!

 

if the OLED display of your Formula v2 is important for you (more than the FLAG LED), then simply downgrade the driver and the firmware of your CSW Base v2 to v335 and download SLIMax Mgr Installer (which is compiled with previous version of Fanatec SDK v3.8) from EKSIMRacing website and obviously DO NOT UPDATE SLIMAX until Fanatec fix the problem.

We already reported the issue to Fanatec so they will fix it asap, hopefully.

A workaround has been added to SLIMax Manager (All Editions) and already deployed, Check For Update as usual to get the latest software.
