View Full Version : mission downloads

Having trouble downloading missions and getting them into the game. I have 1946 with 4.08 patch. When I unzip the files I cannot find the root folder and have looked everywhere. Could someone help me with this? I know this has to be simple but I must have a brain cramp or something.

Most missions/campaigns have a readme file included in the zip which will typically provide installation instructions.

If not, which mission are you having trouble with? I can download it and figure out what you need to do.

If you mean the root directory of the game, right click once on your desktop icon for IL-2 1946 and then click on properties. The root directory will be displayed in one of the windows.

More than likely you will have the game in
c:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\...

For campaigns you want this folder Missions\Campaign\XX (where XX is the country)

For single missions you want Missions\Single\XX (where XX is the country)

Ok, I went back to the default .ZIP file opener and it seems to work alittle better. Thanks, will keep you posted if any more problems occur
