Hi guys!

1.) I recommend that you use the program "Bulk rename utility" (freeware) - makes file renaming very easy! Check here: http://www.bulkrenameutility.co.uk/Main_Intro.php

2.) From now on when I update campaigns I will routinely see that there is an alternate version supplied, with missions without the "_ru"-extension. For all you lucky fellas that have C.U.P.!

I updated the download at mission4today. It now contains a version fully adapted for C.U.P., courtesy of tlloydau:)

So just D/L that zip file at M4T once again, and you don't have to edit any file names etc.

I've had some minor problems with this campaign. After the first few missions, one of my AI blows up at the spawn point. I used the FMB to move the spawn point another 10 feet in front of the hanger. Everything works fine then.
Mission #9 seems to have a start time for the Mohawk that is different, by 6 minutes, after the rest. Until I changed this, the game wouldn't let me fly in the Mohawk. It wanted me to fly the MS406 AI

Besides these things, the Campaign was GREAT. All the "extras" made the campaign very immersive.

Like I said....Minor problems...

Hmm, strange. I did not see any of these problems when I reworked the campaign. There seems to be differences between the size of some objects in HSFX and CUP, causing on-start collisions in CUP where there was no problem in HSFX. Will look into the other one.

Both will be fixed! tlloydau is helping me out here, with the CUP adaption.

It's no big deal. It only takes a few minutes to fix the missions when that happens.
It took me a while to figure out what was wrong with mission#9 with the Hawk. (slightly different start time)

One great thing was that I learned how to use the spawn point static AC, taxi to takeoff feature, by looking at your campaign. Before this, I just did the taxi to take off, on my missions.
(I didn't know that you had to "attach" each AC to a different "spawn static AC")

Hi,
I downloaded the campaign and extracted the CUP version to the campaigns/FI directory and the skins to the skins folder, nothing was overwritten. When I open the game I can't see the new campaign, there are still only the 3 standard campaigns when I choose Finland campaigns.

So what am I doing wrong? This is the first time I tried to install a new campaign by the way.

just a strange idea:
try to rename the campaigns folder and avoid any spaces
to ie /Finland41_Curtiss_for_CUP

Exactly! NO SPACES! The game can't find it IF there are SPACES in the folder name. That will fix it.
