    If it's any thing like the other IL-2 games i would totally love this game however with being left handed and joysticks costing so much and even more for the one i want which needs to be sent in to be modifide to left handed.

    But yes if any thing like the other IL-2 games this be totally sweet.

    However i did see the DRM and can see it might be a issue if i am reading it currently. Although i just think it means you can install it on 3 machines at any one time.

    My Card's arn't even on the list, but how the hell is a 5830 :/

    The limitations sound the same as Wings of prey and Rise of Flight :/ would have thought being on steam was enough but since being published by Ubisoft, they must think different.

    Will get it anyway as a massive IL2 series fan.

    Well i wound of thought your cards would be in the See supported List* were ever that is. O yeah it's on the Download \ DVD when you buy it lol. But surly it pop up on SimHQ or some were sooner or later and if not post on there.

    1C will do a much better job than Gaijin Entertainment did with Birds Of Prey which was not any were near finished when they released it.

    And 1C came out with many patches for IL-2 in the past so cannot see UBI being a issue there as i think they understand it be like hanging them self's.

    I'm gonna boycott it because of the crummy DRM, I don't care what the game is like. I did with Crysis, so I'm not going to stop now.

    Steam is enough DRM as it is. Any more is just taking the piss. :slap:

    I havent ever had an issue with it, but I know there was just a huge DRM issue with Wings of Prey on Steam, such a large issue they actually removed the DRM completely.

    From what I have read about "TAGES Solidshield", it will deactivate a machine if you haven't played on it for a month.

    So you can install the game unlimited amount of times on 3 machines, and if you don't play for a month on a particular machine, it will deactivate that machine.
