... or you can contribute.just make a fork and do it
It so happens that I just finished integrating support for the Thrustmaster Cougar Hotas (not to be confused with the Cougar MFD), thanks to grue74, who apparently prefers contributing over whining.
It's currently on the beta server:
Any Cougar Hotas owners please test away!
Edit: sorry for the snark but it is a bit much when I take on maintenance responsibility and server costs for a project that would otherwise have been abandoned, devote free time to updating the code base, add prompt support for all new key binds added to the game, and still apparently I am not doing enough.
I'm afraid I long ago stopped listening to those who are given a freebie and proceed to whine about how it didn't come with ice cream on top.
I've just stayed up past 1 am integrating the Cougar Hotas. A little gratitude would be appreciated.
