The pc application is required for the SIM Dashboard Android App and must be started while you are playing.

Firewall

If you have a firewall installed (Windows integrated or third party) a window will pop up and ask you to allow the SIM Dashboard application to communicate. This is absolutely required, otherwise your pc can't send data to your Android devices.


User interface

The user Interface contains three tabs. The startpage (Start), the Game Management (Games) and the Device Management (Devices).

The tab "Games" shows which games require configuration and lets you execute the required steps automatically depending on the game.

Within the "Devices" tab you see the paired Android devices. You can also remove them there.

You can open the settings of the application using the button in the window bar of the main window.

The following options can be set there:

  • Autostart of the application recommended
  • Search for updates on application startup recommended

The application can be minimized to the system tray using the X icon in the window bar. It stays active then.
