Is a manual included with Il2 1946? There was nothing in the game box. I very confused about this game and how to access all the features. I don't even know what to play and what the campaign is. Can someone help me out?

ps This is my first experience with the Il2 series but I have been playing the Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator series for a couple of years.

No print manual, it's on the DVD and in the game directory as "maunal.pdf".

yes the manual is a PDF in the game folder to cut the cost of the game........ there is also a printable key guide.........

I don't think they made a new manual after PF was released. They didn't really need one as all the upgrades since then have only added planes, maps and objects, no new features. That manual covers the essentials.

Yup. That manual is the most up-to-date for the series (IL-2 1946 has the complete series), but it's pretty small. That manual, plus the readme file, and the airplane guide (another pdf file in your IL-2 folder) can help you get started. They barely scratch the surface, though. There are a few threads on this board that are set to sticky that can help, like "Nuggets guide to getting off the ground". That has a nice overview of the game.

yep its in PDF format. You could always print it out if you got the ink.
