Hi All. I know i'm not the brightest when it comes to inserting downloads[ missions] into the game[46 or FB]I have managed to work out inserting skins now, but missions is another matter. I follow the the prompts, eg 41-42 channel spitfire. missions/campaign/GB, I have placed this in the GB folder[i can see it there] the missions are based on 303 polish sqd flying spits,I open up the game ,but cannot find it in either RAF pilot career or single missions???? . This all very frustating when all these great addons are available and they cant be found. Help. Cheers. JM.

Hey.

This is my way to do it. It may not the easies way, but it works everytime.

1-First unzip the zip in default folder.
2-Now open the folder you get from the zip and read the readme file, which tell you where to put your campaign, which country.
3-Go through the folders as long as you find the folder, which had .mis and .properties files in it. This is the folder you looking for.
4-Go one step back and click and copy or cut the folder (which had these .mis & .properties files).
5-Now go to your OWN IL2 folder and go through the folders "missions/campaign/*countrys*". Now mostly readme file has told you, which country you should select. Open that country folder and paste the folder you have copy/cut in there. Now you find this campaign under this country in game.
6-That's it.

Next copy/cut skins and everything else you want/need to install to their folders.

I test this with the campaign you have and it was under the RAF, but it name was "Channel 41/42 Spitfire", not 41_42_Channel_Spitfire, what is the name of the folder you should had under your GB folder.

One more time, simple way with this campaign...
Copy the folder named as "41_42_Channel_Spitfire" under the GB folder in your IL2 game.
Start the game and start new pilot career. Select RAF and find the campaign named as "Channel 41/42 Spitfire". This was second in my RAF career list. Well I only have 47 + now this under the RAF, so it wasn't hard to find.

Maybe you looking for different kind of name of the campaign.

Anyway hope this helps.

Again thanks IL2battle,carried out you instructions and "Channel Spitfire is now loaded, I found that i did not need to cut and paste [Vista]i just found the folder which contained Mis and properties files and back one step to GB file,selected and extracted to GB in IL2/FB.
I shall do the same with regards the skins. Cheers
