Run the game.
Go into "Controls"
Click right of any command & press key/button to assign it to.

Thanks a lot guys but my problem is more complicated than that! By the way my joystick has 8 buttons plus throttle! the problem is that I want to modify my keyboard layout for maximum and realistic control of the aircraft such as Prop Pitch, Mixture, etc... Again guys thank you very much for all your help! I have been playing CFS1 since it came out, but IL2 is just out of this world!!!

Ahhh such an innocent lad, in a week he will be complaining about the rivet pattern on the P-51's left wing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Ha Ha very funny! who cares about a stupid rivet pattern! for all I know that P-51 had a major repair and modifications had to be made! Give me a Spitfire and say its a P-51 don't mater as long as it flies like a P-51. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

PapaDoc3, I think I know where you're leading but beware...

First it's the keyboard layout to match the instruments, then you'll be building yourself a cockpit replica too like others have started doing. This game will take you over mwa ha ha ha <evil laugh> ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Too late Capt._Tenneal

I am already hooked!!! however I am completely satisfied with the already quite accurate cockpits in the game. the only thing that is bugging me is that I must define the keyboard myself to have a complete control of the aircraft, and you see, this I am not very good at! By the way do any of you guys know when to lean the mixture? or use the supercharger? SO far I have been leaning the mixture when above 3000 ft, and using the supercharger at 10,000 ft, no matter what aircraft I am flying!
