Hi,
There is a reference document in the game's folder, but the keys indicated in the pdf seem to be different from the keys that actually work in-game. Am I going crazy? Anyway, I seem to be having troubles interpreting the list of controls in the file.
Did anybody else notice this? Is there an updated list available anywhere?
Yeah the reference cars is a mess, a, c and s stand for Alt, Ctrl and Shift.
I have a good reference card that came with my CD copies but sadly I don't have a scanner so I can't upload it.
The other option is to press F1 in flight, it opens the manual and you should be able to find the proper keys there.

Thanks, I'll try that! Is it the same manual that comes in pdf form in the game folder? Because the controls in that manual are the same as the reference card...

I've just noticed this too. This is a genuine pdf of the original manual. However, the fonts were not embedded (presumably to save on file size). The missing fonts are actual icons of the key tops that you would press.
Therefore, unless you have them installed on your computer they will look wrong and garbled. I tried to find them online without success. I wonder if it's worth writing to them to pint this out. They must have been there in the first place. Very frustrating.
