I just picked up IL-2 1946 and in retrospect, I probably should have waited until they had another copy of it in the store but I was impatient and wanted it immediately so I bought it.

Here's the 'problem'--the box was kind of mashed but still sealed and they checked it out at Circuit City and the disks looked O.K.

When I got home I had the feeling that maybe I was missing something, namely the book ! ( no problem, the PDF is fine ) But should there only be 2 disks ? Sorry if it sounds stupid but the game runs fine but I have a nagging feeling like I am missing something. Am I ?

The next issue is this--in the cockpit view, the crosshairs are half missing. I have the original IL-2 and from the CP view you can see the whole crosshair, but with 1946 only half are there, weird. It almost looks as if it is supposed to be that way so I am left again wondering about it. ( gunnery is set to realistic and I have not yet patched the game )

Many Thanks in advance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

You got everything there. There isn't a hard copy manual, and there are only two disks. Actually the entire software is on disk one. The second disk is just "bonus" material, like videos, interviews, previews of BoB etc.

Don't know about the crosshairs though.
