nVidia Driver Issue
It appears that some people are experincing some "frame buffer incomplete" errors during startup (Font Initialisation).
At this moment in time it looks like a driver bug (446.14), and doesn't affect all models of nVidia hardware.
I'm investigating and will try and produce a workaround ... or nVidia may release new drivers at some point.
Meanwhile, please try running this test application and see if the nVidia Font workaround solves the issue. Please email the logs to me.
License File Issues
If your having issues with the license key, please follow these steps:
Clear Internet Explorer Cache
Behind the scenes, the application uses Windows API calls which in turn rely upon Internet Explorer to download files from the website.
Assuming you have windows 10...
Type internet explorer in the "type here to explore"
under "best match" select Internet Explorer app
Click Delete button in the Browsing History section.
Click Delete button to delete Temporary Internet Files.
Locate your installation folder for MFDCougar
Navigate to the license folder and DELETE the licenses.txt file
You can now start MFDCougar
Cougars - Not Responding to Key Press Binding
Please ensure you're running version 1.13 or later.
If your having issues with binding key presses, follow these steps:
Check that Elite is working in window mode - not full screen (using the menus in Elite to change mode)
keydelay=40 Experiment by increasing the delay value (in milliseconds)
It comes with an EventViewer utility; this tool reports back what keys are being 'processed' / pressed. Since it's a global hook (like my own debug tool) it should confirm that the correct key presses are being sent.
