For the best experience please run Windows Update. There have been some significant changes if you haven't done this for a while and testing has shown that these updates are required.
Ensure your Windows clock is synchronised to the internet - which can be done from the Control Panel or by running the included ClockSync.bat (run as administrator).


Special Release notes for Version 1.310

If you are new to MFD Cougar, you can skip this notice.

Version 1.3 attempts to correct a few issues which have emerged since the last release. As a result I'm not releasing an update package for version 1.2+ and instead asking you all to install a fresh new version 1.300. The good news is that all of your existing registry, configuration files (XML,INI) and database are fully compatible.
Read the section Files not preserved and follow the Manual updates in the upgrade guide for a general guide on what files to backup and restore. In short, your existing settings can simply be merged with the new files and the existing database file can safely be copied over the new one supplied in the zip package.
The updated AutoUpdate.exe program now has the ability to update its self - which is one of the reasons for this 1.3 release.

MFDCougar.ini
Has been upgraded to allow touch screen users more control over how the window refocuses after a button has been pressed. Usually, the window with the button gets focus back after sending the key strokes over to Elite. However, some people prefer that the focus instead goes to the Elite game window. This can be achieved by adding the following into the MFDCougar.ini file, and setting the refocusEliteClient value to 1.

[keyboard]
;set the below to 1 to set the active window to Elite after pressing a key (good for touch screens)
refocusEliteClient=0

Fixes for Known Issues (v1.310)
Commodities Searching
The EDDB listings.csv is now downloaded once per day, and imported upon each start-up (previously loaded from file).

License File
