Ladies and Gents,
Let make something together here. There are many requests from newcomers in regards of Manual and many other things. Lets gather all the readme files, scan original IL2 Manual, add few tips and make a PDF file or something that could be downloaded by all new members of this community. I will start digging thru backups tonight, getting all readme`s. If someone could scan original manual, would be awesome.

Thanks!

Sounds awesome, perhaps we could even finish the Aircraft guide and make something like ND's work and cover ALL the planes

Isnt the manual on the disc itself, in .pdf, or is that the 'Aircraft Guide' only? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I bought a 'Bestseller' editition of original Il2 some time ago.
The manual was on the disc in pdf form. It weighs just under 1MB.

I can mail or upload it somewhere, just say when/where.

The entire knowledge base @ M4T is a goldmine IMO..... Look in the Essentials thread as well...

I think a link should be included to

In Pursuit: A pilot's guide to online air combat

It's not a guide specific to IL2, but I found it helped me immensely.
