I have just purchased and intalled IL 2. Everything works except the joystick control. The joystick does not show in the hardware screen as being active. Any suggestions for applying the joystick would be greatly appreciated.

make sure the joystick is plugged in. if ur joystick camed with some drivers, then install them. if not, u must go to gaming option in control panel, and manually add it and convigure it.
if ur stick had a separate power plug, then make sure that is plugged in. hope it helps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If your joystick is set-up and configured OK in Windows, then there is something else you should check...
There is a program called 'il2setup.exe' in the root folder (you should also have a shortcut icon to it in the start menu). Run it. Go to the 'joystick' tab. Ensure the 'Use joystick' checkbox is ticked. Click on 'properties', and check that it shows in the list.
