Horrible joystick support
So when I saw this game bing released for PC I was exited. As a flight-arcade enthousiast I just had to buy it. I regret it already. The joystick support is horrible. I own the HOTAS Warthog which is like the most expensive stick on the market. It sucks using it. For flight enthousiasts this game is a no go! This is a typical keyboard game for noobs.

Rudder and thrust are somehow binded to the same keys and can't be removed.
This whole console layout is hor-ri-ble.
It feels like flying a ripped paper airplane.

I just got the game and agree, although I did find a fix for my joystick (Saitek X52).

I used a program called JoyToKey that binds all the joystick controls to a keyboard key or mouse movement. It worked pretty good for me.

This game is not simulation game. And AC:AH control is not good to fly with joystick because of DFM mode. Try Xbox Controller or dualshock 3. It is much better.

You can still try use x360ce to convert DirectImput joysticks into X360 controllers. (I didn't tested it yet.)

Dont care. Joystick is for consoles.

Not a valid excuse. At all. It's irrelevant if whether ot not the game is trying to be accurate. The problem is that it's a lazy port and why should he have to go out and spend $50 on a new controller for this? No, stupid. Especially, when ok-ish Saitek cheapos are way less.

Great, I should have looked this up instead of assuming it would have decent joystick support. But come on, that isn't an unrealistic expectation in a flight game.
