Hey Bird_Brain, I downloaded teh hellhawks campaign under my il2 sturmovik Campaign missions folder. But I can't play it in the game. I unzipped it went to New Campaign and there was no US choice for the country. What did I do wrong and what should I do? I'm sorry for being such a noob, but I can't figure it out!

You probably don't have Extreme_One's USAAF campaign or Battle over Europe right?

You need to install the US Ranks & Awards files for the campaign to work. I would suggest DL'ing & installing "The Real Deal" by E_O.

You can get it here; http://www.netwings.org/library/Forgotten_Battles/Missions/index-10.html
half way down the page. It is the file named "USAAF campaign folder v1.21"

That should get you rolling & if not, post back & we will figure it out.

Hey, I downloaded E_O's missions and just got through one of the missions(awesome Extreme_One!) But I can't bring up HellHawks. What should I do?

* Open the .zip file with winzip.
* Select all files.
* Check the box marked "use file names" & "overwrite files"
* Extract all the files to C:/

If you have Forgotten Battles loaded to the default location "C:/Program Files/Ubi Soft/ IL2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles, they will find their way to the correct place. If you installed somewhere else, you will have to extract & install to your campaign file manually.

I already have them under this:

C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Campaign\Hellhawks\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\Missions\Campaign\US

Is that right?

Not right...You have apparently extracted the campaign to your Missions/US file. Delete that & follow the directions above 1 step at a time.
