Failure to Connect when opening the Fenix Livery Manager

If you're getting a failed to connect error/fatal error in the Livery Manager.

In the event you cannot load the the Fenix Livery Manager, you can use a bypass switch in our Livery Manager settings file to allow for direct connection to the Fenix servers.

Go to C:\ProgramData\Fenix\Livery Manager and open settings.json, scroll until you see '"DirectConnection":false' and change false to true.

Beware: Direct editing of settings files is dangerous and you should limit what you change to what is directly outlined in this article. 

Also, certain countries such as China and Russia block Cloudflare services which the Livery Manager utilises. You may have to use a VPN to use the Livery Manager.
