I bought today a packaged set of IL2 & IL2-FB. There is a reference card in IL2-FB, but not IL2. Are they the exact same card?

The keys are the same since IL2 and IL2 Forgotten Battles are basicly the same game, Forgotten Battles just has a lot (And that's a LOT) more extra's.

So basicly you only had to buy Forgotten Battles.

Thanks for the tip. Good thing the price was 2 for one! So are you saying there's no point in playing both IL2 AND IL2-FB ? No extra missions etc?

Everything that is in IL2 is also in Forgotten Battles, so no, there is really no point in playing both.

Don't forget the static campaigns that come with IL2, as well as the single missions. If you can, pull them over into FB, and enjoy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks to all for your advice. I am new to flight sims, so I'm a little overwhelmed by the difficulty. I am thinking of getting MS Flight Simulator 2004 as it suppoed to be very good now for newbies like me. Then I will apply that experience to IL2. Agree?

Respectfully, no. Its better to learn to fly a sim now. Although the learning curve is steep, you can get up it quickly with a few aids.

Steve is right, when I first started IL2 I played Space sims for years and I was not used to stalls, drag, spins, ground or anything related to real life flight physics so needless to say I sucked big time.

I joined a Squadron and quickly became the Squadron clown for smacking into the ground all the time combined with exotic language over the comms.
I then started to fly the IL2 ground pounder because this plane is very forgiving in the handeling department and slowly learned the fine art of ground pounding.
Since the other Squadron jocks only flew fighter planes and the number of pilots started to grow with other members who liked to move mud and pound ground targets I was promoted to Squadron Leader of the ground attack wing.
This went on for a few months until they broke the IL2 in a patch because of continues whining from the "other side", leaving it completely useless, hell, you couldn't even take off with a full bomb/rockets + fuel load.
So, during the waiting periode of the patch I started to fly the fighters and this time it was a lot less hard.

At this time I am one of the few members that (to some degree) mastered every aspect of combat in this game.
