Very Important: On some new video cards this game may crash/freeze in OpenGL mode, If so change video mode in Directx then it should run fine!

Important: A keyboard with a numlock part is recommended. To make IL-2 to run Fullscreen, first you go into the config.ini folder. then you set your screens resolution. (the fix—>) then you set EnableResize and SaveAspect to 0. then save. when the movie runs, it should be fullscreen, but the menu still has the black bars, i cant fix those, because thats how the menu is formatted, but in-game, its fullscreen)
