NEW Alternative build of SLIMax Mgr Pro without Native Fanatec Support

Hi,

Now Fanatec have its “in-house” and official tool to manage Fanatec hardware I built a new Alternative version of SLIMax Mgr Pro without the native support of Fanatec hardware. The new build is optimized and doesn’t load any library from Fanatec SDK. All Fanatec features are removed. You have now the choice to run SLIMax Manager with or without the native support.

As usual “Check For Update” to get this additional optimized version. After the update simply go to the SLIMax Manager Pro program directory and run SLIMaxMgrProNoFanatec64.exe app (create a shortcut of the app on your desktop if needed). This is useful if don’t have a Fanatec steering wheel or CSP pedals set or want to use the official Fanatec tool in addition to SLIMax Mgr Pro.

Devices display and EMUlators supported by this version:

SIM Display: SIM Race LCD, SIM Race F1, SIM Race GT, SIM Race Deluxe, SIM Race Pro

Leo Bodnar: SLI-M, SLI-PRO, SLI-F1, SLI Bodnar Fanatec Conversion Kit
