I've only recently heard of this game, and am looking forward to playing. My only question is if anyone knows for *SURE* the system requirements for a PC and if there is a suggested joystick to this game?
I'm a newbie to PC games, so please be gentle.

I don't think that any PC system requirements have been released yet but i'm sure they will be released at some point. just stay tuned and check from time to time.
Also I don't use joysticks at all so I can't recommend anything, I would however wait for the game to released before you buy a joystick so as to be sure that the game has proper support for joysticks. I believe blazing angels had problems with joystick compatibility which weren't addressed after its release.

I've got a Saitek X52 flight stick(not pro) and I love it.
Any game you can control with mouse/keyboard, you can map those controls to the stick with it's software.
Other times, I use the Xbox 360 controller and use similar software for it from Pinnacle Game Profiler to map controls to it. http://www.pinnaclegameprofiler.com/
Both options are very versatile and cover the bases for me--I can't stand kb/mouse for games.

I just bought the cd but like blazing angles I am have problems with my x-52 pro stick. I go into opt and pick joystick and run my stick over each setting. But when I get into the game the plane goes one way and the stick does not respond. I have all the flight sims and they all work find even Il2- 1946. Any help
