is there any known problem with the Pro Race and Windows 10 64 and/or Automobilista?

I have recently started getting giant freezes during racing - the whole game just locks up for around 8 seconds at random times, making racing almost impossible.

I don't know if it has been caused by Windows 10, which I installed in the last couple of months, or one of the many updates to the Automobilista game.

I have tried removing all controllers, and then plugging them back in one by one.
I can't be 100% sure as the problem is a bit random, but it seems to be working fine with my G27 wheel and my JC32 DIY button box, but when I plug the ProRace back in, the game freeze happens within the first few minutes of driving.

Thought I'd report it in case there is anything known about this, or in case there might be a fix.

I'm not sure of my ProRace version but I bought it back in 2011/12 if that helps determine it's version? Is there any way to update firmware?

At least I've already had good use out of it, but it's just a bit disappointing as AMS is the only race sim I use, so I now have to get used to racing without my display. (Glad I've still got the button box though :)  )

Cheers :)

Questions about specific simulators / F1 2016 & Pro Race - Position error
« on: September 18, 2017, 03:59:03 pm »
Hi Cristiano,
just wanted to report, don't know if you or anyone else has seen this error, but I am noticing that in F1 2016, career mode, the 'position' on my ProRace is always out by one place. (I am using SimDash 16)

I don't know if that is something that can be fixed in Simdash or an error in the data output of the game?

So for example, if the game says I am in position 5, then the ProRace display tells me I am in position 4. (I think it's that way round. Anyway it is always out by one).

General Discussions / ProRace Delta feature
« on: August 28, 2017, 04:55:31 pm »
hi Cristiano,

I just realised that you've added a 'delta' feature into SimDash/ProRace, but I thought I should tell you that it is not working in Automobilista. (SimDash 15). I'm not sure if it us supposed to work though?
I'm pretty sure that the delta information is available in the game but it is not showing on the ProRace dash, I just get zeroes displayed.

Is there any chance you could take a look please, it would be great to have the delta displaying on my wheel.

Many Thanks :)

General Discussions / SimDash15 / ProRace bug
« on: July 10, 2017, 06:40:56 am »
Hi Cristiano,
There seems to be a small problem with SimDash 15 on my ProRace display.

I used to be able to alt-tab out of a game and the display would still be there when I went back into the game.

But now, if I alt-tab out of the game, the display goes blank, so before I return to the game I have to go back to SimDash, click on 'configure plugin', 'ok', then the display returns and works again.

It's a minor thing but it has never been like this before (I was using Simdash 10 up till recently, so this might have appeared anywhere between ver 11 & 15).

General Discussions / Has support ended?
« on: May 11, 2015, 08:04:39 am »
I just wondered if Symprojects hardware is still sold and supported?

My ProRace dash is thankfully still working ok with my favourite GSC, but I wonder if it will work with the latest sims such as Assetto Corsa or Project Cars?

I must be honest, I would be reluctant to buy more hardware as I never see Christiano on the forum any more, or any requests for advice being answered, except for occasional help from other forum members.

The link to the forum has also been missing from the main site for months now, so new customers cannot even get to it.

Does anyone have any up to date experience of purchases or support?

Thanks :)

General Discussions / SimDash not working with rFactor Steam version
« on: March 06, 2015, 08:18:05 pm »
Has anyone else bought the Steam version of rFactor 1 ?
SimDash (and my ProRace display) works fine with my standalone DVD version of rF1, but I have also just bought the Steam version, and the software/display are not working.

Any ideas would be welcome,

Hi Cristiano,
did you know the link to this forum has disappeared from your homepage?
Thought you should know - luckily I had the forum bookmarked :)

General Discussions / Reporting a bug in Pro Race Profiles
« on: June 10, 2014, 09:09:52 pm »
Hi Cristiano,
thought you should know about a bug I have found in SimDash.

I have saved a few different profiles from my Pro-Race, using the export option in the menu, one for Game Stock Car, one for Nascar Racing 2003, and a couple of others.
In all of these profiles, I never use any of the buttons as toggle switches, so the 'toggle  switches' tick boxes on the Buttons tab in the Pro Race config screen are always unticked.
However, whenever I import any of them back into SimDash  , ALL switches on the ProRace become toggle switches. I then have to go into the config and untick them all, and then it works fine. I have tested this several times, with ver 4 and ver 5, and it does this every time i.e it always ticks all the boxes, making them all toggle switches.


General Discussions / Sim Monitor and Lap Times
« on: March 27, 2014, 10:58:37 pm »
Hi Cristiano,
the Sim Monitor software looks interesting, and I'm testing it on an extra monitor,but I was wondering, is there any way for it to display lap times of other cars, so that I could create a session timing screen on another monitor? That would be really useful.


General Discussions / Nascar 2003 season (Papyrus)
« on: June 27, 2013, 01:59:06 pm »
Just got hold of a copy of Nascar 2003, patched it to 1.201, but no sign of it being recognised by simdash/prorace display. I make sure to start simdash before starting NR2003, but still nothing. Has anyone else had experience of getting this one working please?

Hi Cristiano,
any chance of checking out Nascar 2013 the game on pc and see if it's possible to add simdash/pro-race function for this game?

Many thanks

General Discussions / How many of these USB devices will run together?
« on: April 12, 2013, 07:56:29 am »
I currently run 3 usb devices while racing:
2)Pro race display/wheelplate(SR Hardware)
3)home made button box with 24 buttons and 2 rotary encoders (Symprojects JC32 controller)

They were all plugged into a cheap, self-powered USB hub, but I have had some problems with either the steering & throttle freezing while driving, or the Pro race unit freezing. It happens randomly, and is very annoying as I suddenly lose control and crash. The device then usually begins working again after a few seconds.

I am trying the devices in different slots in an effort to cure this.

(Win 7 64 bit, AMD 960T quad 3ghz, 750W PSU, 2 x HD5750 cards, 8GB DDR2 ram)
Has anyone had similar problems?
How many devices are you running?
How many should I be able to run without problems?

In the future I would like to add a USB shifter and possibly a SimScreen & other dials, but I am reluctant to add anything until I find the cause of this :(

Thanks for any ideas

General Discussions / Gap readouts disappearing - SOLVED
« on: March 27, 2013, 02:09:03 pm »
Cristiano, I wonder if you can tell me why this is happening?

I am using the pro race display, powered by Simdash 1.4.1, in Game Stock Car.

The problem part is the 'gap to next car' and 'gap to leader'.

First, everything worked fine.
Then, at some point, these two displays stopped working, all other readouts were fine.
I then discovered that, at the start of the formation lap, the two readouts work ok, but if I skip the formation lap they both stop working, while everything else continues to work.

I made a new profile (.plr file) & started a new season, and the two readouts then worked again fully. Even if i skipped the formation lap, it all continued to work. I was happy again. :)

But now the same thing has happened again. I am on my 4th race of a new season, and at the start of the race, if I skip the formation lap, the 'next' and 'leader' displays disappear.

What have I changed in my plr file or elsewhere to cause this to happen, have you any idea what might trigger it?

I am editing many files to get the AI running well, so I cannot pinpoint what has caused it, so I am hoping you might be able to suggest what would trigger this?

Many thanks

Hi Cristiano,
here's another title that should be released very soon, (delayed but could be released any day now) could you take a look at implementing Sim Dash when it is released?

Thank you :)

Hi Cristiano,
I ordered a JC32 yesterday, and was just wondering how long it normally takes to the UK please?
(What country are you in, by the way?)  :)
Many thanks

EDIT thought I should just add to this by saying thank you for such a fast service - I was very surprised to receive my controller board in only a few days - it is now succesfully installed in my DIY button box :)
