Vizier, your manual is no longer available.  Did you remove it or is the link just no good?

I fly with a joystick(now w/Saitek X52Pro) with all my sim programs & have done so since CFS1(Saitek Cyborg3D). Most programs have joystick input assignments & recognize the joystick being used. I find that I cannot use my POV on my joystick. Why hasn't this function been incorporated into WoWP? My frame rates seem to be dismal at 5-6fps, although I found a posting that indicated changing the vert. sync. to "on" will help....I've done that. Does the time of day with heavy internet usage affect the framerates? I'm on DSL. So far, I find the graphics/scenery decent, the aircraft are decently scale, the flight controls appear correct & fairly accurate, although the "cockpit" view would certainly enhance the flight envelope. I'm hoping that all the suggestions/responses posted will give the developers the info to make playing the game more effective.

At extremely close range when the enemy is flying in a straight line.

im really not to fond of some of the "mouse and keyboard" controls since i cannot afford a joystick this is what i have to use. it is very difficult to learn

Thanks for the info.  If anyone has any recommendations for the TM HOTAS 'Hog (with a fully functional top hat) and the dual throttle quadrant that came with it, I would be quite pleased.
Has anyone expanded on the use of rudder pedals vs. combat pedals?  I have need knowledge of a few more options.  First would be trackIR, my favorite immersion tool.  If WoWp doesn't already have the trackIR option.  All of the "view changing" buttons would be re-assignable.  I would buy the Z-Board if there was a keyset for all the current and up-coming WGN releases.

First, thanks for devoting so much time and effort.
While going over the contents I noticed the F7 key may need to be edited.  It's listed here as having two functions.

Is the mouse-wheel used in sniper-mode (as in WoT), or could you re-map the engine throttle to the mouse-wheel instead? Just got my beta invite this morning and am desperately praying for work to end, or catch fire, or something that will get me home to log in.

WG has mentioned (not promised) that they would like to implement TIR, but that was back in Feb - March maybe?  

no sign of any TIR coding so far...

I attempted to change it but it would not take the mouse wheel commands in the place of the + and -. Maybe as we move further into beta...
