Welcome to Cougar Display

Elite Dangerous Cougar Display (ED:CD) is a graphical enhancement for PC users of Elite Dangerous (third party tool).

ED:CD is an OpenGL application designed to run on a second screen or USB monitors and is best used with a pair of MFD Cougars or touch screen monitors.
If you don't have those, then a second monitor with keyboard / mouse will work just fine too.

Using the Elite APIs, the application is able to add that extra layer of immersion and render good looking images from in-game events.
