A-10C and 3 Thrustmaster MFDs.

Alirght, this is going to be fun I think. I've got 3 Cougar MFDs. They all work fine in every plane but the A-10C. My third MFD is greyed out like the other two because of the default bindings. I was wondering if anyone knows a way that I can clear it from the default so I can bind it to something else.

What was the fix?

I think you have to manually delete the MFD 1 and MFD 2 default files on the core installation (not Saved Games...).

It happens to me with Harrier.

Another method is to grab the latest drivers, and tell the mfd that it is the third one. Without the latest drivers, the limit was only two mfds.

 

I did a quick video demonstrating this a few months back.

Thank you! That works nicely. Though deleting the defaults for 1 and 2 just opened up a bunch of possibilities too. This way I won't have to do it again for anything else though. Cheers!

By deleting the defaults, doesn't really fix the underlying issue. The third MFD is showing as MFD2 instead of MFD3 in windows controller page. So the computer thinks you have two MFD2 and one MFD1. Not an issue with DCS, since we can map around it with the unique IDs.
