    Il-2

    Just brought this game off ebay for a fantastic price, this seems like the best flight sim out there at the moment. It should be with me in a few days.

    What is the best joystick to get at the moment that works really well with this game?

    Also does everyone here meet up on any servers to play some multiplayer games?

    /\ what he said.....to get online is often hard as you need all the latest versions.

    Which did you get? Which version?

    Promise you though...tis worthy.

    Just brought IL 2 Sturmovik, so to play online I will need to buy all the expansion packs? This could cost quite a bit

    You need to do what Tumble said, it's well worth it.

    Look at dabs.com for some joystick steals.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
