When choosing single missions/USN there is NOT supposed to be a 'straight farm' choice...
You should have a 'Practice' choice there, with the single missions in it...
(see step 5)

There should NOT be a 'Straight Farm' folder or choice anywhere on your computer or in il-2...
If there is, then you did not follow 'step two' correctly...

In the end, there should only be a 'Straight_from_the_farm' choice and folder in the campain and a 'Practise' choice and folder for the single missions... (step two as well)

look at the 'step two' pictures again and notice the lack of a folder called 'straight farm'...
My bet is that you still have that folder somewhere:

Anywayz, here are the instructions again, but this time even more elaborite:

*Step one:
Opening the downloaded '301_Straight Farm.zip' file with a program called 'winrar', which is available from http://www.rarlab.com/ (http://www.rarlab.com:)
Here is a direct link: http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar37b7.exe

Note the two blue folders in the winrarscreen...
These two folders are the folders you will need to copy...
Also notice the 'readme.txt' file there, which has the mission briefs and a short instalation tip...

"
2) Installing the campaign and practice missions
Install the "Straight_From_the_Farm" folder into your Missions\Campaign\UN folder
Install the Practice folder in your Missions\Single\UN folder
"


*Step two, getting those two folders (and thereby also the files) in the right place:

*Step three (for the campain):
Load up the game and choose 'new pilot career'...

*Step four, choose the campain:

*Step five (For single missions):

Please let me know at what step, you get confused...



Did you get any other downloaded missions or campains to work..?
