So i'm new. Just installed FB+AEP+PF and now am desperately trying to learn the game.

1. I have a problem with my throttle on my saitek cyborg evo joystick, it just doesn't seem to work, am i missing something?

2. Whats the best way to find targets when in a mission, is the map the only way but then i seem to have trouble.

3. Does anyone have links to useful resources that goes through manouvers etc like dive bombing, strafing. I have seen the community manual, is there anything else?

Thanks to everyone, i may have some other questions, any help greatly appreciated http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Welcome!

1. Have you set it up in Controls, HOTAS section?

2. Finding targets will depend on the specific mission type. And on the diffictulty settings. Read the missions briefing. Use the padlock keys (F7 for ground, F6 for air).

3. Have you visted http://www.airwarfare.com/guides.htm ?

Have Fun!

Welcome trident42
1 Take a look in the control panel of your computer, for the game controllers, open and check out properties. You might have to calibrate your controls.
2 Finding targets is made easier, if you study the map before flying, take note of the heading to targets, and the land features along the way. Or play the quick mission builder,to get some practice, the bad guy will be heading right for you, and the enemy airbase behind him will have some ground targets.
3 One of the best ways to learn manouvers is right in your game, just press the Training option, take a look at " bf 109 Introduction", or Il2 introduction for dog fight manouvers, and the "Ground attack" for some tips. The best teacher is practice. SlipBall ( I was only following orders )

Trident:

I'm fairly new to the game as well and have the same joystick you have. Another member of the community sent me his Evo profile to use and it works rather well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif If you would like it, drop me a PM and I'll mail the profile to you.
