It will work with 1946. Did you move the entire folder into the UN directory or just the missions? You need to move the entire folder or it will not work.

You need to install the "Straight_From_the_Farm" campaign folder in the ...\Missions\Campaign\UN folder.

It will look like this when you have installed it correctly: ...\Missions\Campaign\UN\Straight_From_the_Farm

All 19 missions and the other campaign files must be in the Straight_From_the_Farm folder.

No. The <span class="ev_code_RED">Straight_From_the_Farm </span> folder needs to be directly in the UN folder. Get rid of the <span class="ev_code_PINK">Straight Farm </span> folder and move the <span class="ev_code_RED">Straight_From_the_Farm</span> folder to the UN folder. My guess is the same thing needs to be done with the single missions.

Some people are having problems getting the campaign to run. When installing the campaign, please do the following:

A) Unzip the downloaded file.
B) The unzipped file will have 7 objects in it.
...1) Thumbs (this is for the jpeg file - ignore it)
...2) Straight From the Farm Briefings - text file (for those without MS Word)
...3) Straight From the Farm Briefings - Word version
...4) readme file - read this before installing!
...5) Farm - a jpeg file - ignore this
...6) Straight_From_the_Farm folder
...7) Practice folder

C) Read the readme file
D) Print the briefings using either the Word or text file.
E) Copy or move the Practice folder to your Missions/Single/UN folder
F) Copy or move the Straight_From_the_Farm folder and its contents to your Missions/Campaign/UN folder.

When installed correctly, the campaign folder structure will look like this:

Missions
--- Campaign
------ UN
--------- Straight_From_The_Farm

Make it look like this:

MISSIONS
CAMPAIGN
UN
-STRAIGHT FROM THE FARM
________________________________________________
SINGLE
UN
-PRACTICE



The 'STRAIGHT FARM' folder in the zipfile, was just a placeholder for the directories you were supposed to copy... It should be ignored...

This campain is well worth the efford...

Read this carefully and then do what it says. Notice that the <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Straight Farm </span>folder is nowhere to be seen.

<span class="ev_code_PINK">E) Copy or move the Practice folder to your Missions/Single/UN folder
F) Copy or move the Straight_From_the_Farm folder and its contents to your Missions/Campaign/UN folder.

When installed correctly, the campaign folder structure will look like this:

Missions
--- Campaign
------ UN
--------- Straight_From_The_Farm</span>

Step one, getting the directory and files in the right place:

Step two:
Load up the game and choose 'new pilot career'...

Step three, choose the campain:

If the 'STARIGHT_FROM_THE_FARM' and 'Practise' folders are not in the place as shown in my pictures, then return to step one...

By sending me your pictures, you would only make me try to put into words, what is shown in my pictures, and you know what they say about pictures... ...

There are numerous missions and campains you can download, but unfortunatly, they almost all require the same install ways as this one...

Perhaps someone else can guide you towards missions/campains which install themselves...
