Hello Friends!
During the development of the SLI-PRO with Leo in 2008/2009 EKSIMRacing unveiled the  first sim-racing app for Android 2.2 or greater. A complete hardware emulator of the firmware of the upcoming SLIPro display. The idea was to emulate the firmware to be able to test the “SLIPro Mgr” application. Despite the emulation the Android app works today in full screen with no lag!
The manager has been heavily improved and became in 2011 the SLIMax Manager!  The current 2014 version 3.4.2 of SLIMax Mgr  is at light years from the first version! 🙂  manages more than 50 sim/games, support a lot of device displays and steering wheels, much more powerful and really  easy to use.
Today, I’m proud to present you a new “ultimate” 😉 emulator for Android in development which obviously be powered by the SLIMax Manager and includes a firmware emulation of the SIM Race F1 display + input controller with:

  • 15 RPM leds
  • 6 Marshal leds
  • 7 External leds
  • 1 Central gear digit
  • 2 panels of 4  digit
  • 32 buttons or 16 encoders
  • 9 Rotary switches

in addition to this amazing display specs I added the support of a hi-res touch-screen (which is the screen of your smartphone or tablet obviously). The Dash-Emu will be entirely customizable, provided with at least 3 templates NASCAR Spek Pro Gauges, Cosworth like Dash and DSD like buttonbox.
The real hardware display corresponding (almost) to this emulator is still in development and not intended to be released this year…
All current owners of EKSIMRacing hardware emulator (SLI-Emu / SRF1-Emu license) will get the new app for FREE! 😉
The cost of the emu is unchanged at $10 (which include 3 emus now,  the SLI-PRO Emu, the SIM Race F1 emu and the SLIMax Dash-Emu asap 😉 ).
As usual all GOLD Subscribers will be able to take part to the alpha/beta test of the new emulator in beta group of the support forum.
Cheers,
Zappadoc
