Please bear with me on this one. I hope I have the right section or this.
I've recently picked up the FS series again and started playing the mods and extras that people have been working on (kudos, some excellent work out there). I'm currently playing "The Lightning Marshall" before moving on to the main FS2 campaign. It got me wondering with the mission "Hard Rain" if you are meant to start of flying the GTF Ulysses.
So, I had a look at the files for the original game to see if there were any files in the original subfolders, and I couldn't see any which worried me. I decided to backup the existing FS2 directory with all the open extras and mods and do a fresh install of the original game, using cloned copies of the original 1999 CDs (which I think my brother has). Again, there were no files in the subfolders which worries me.
So all in all, the bottom line question is "Are there meant to be files in the sub folders from the retail install?"
As an extra question, is the GTF Ulysses the fighter that is meant to be used for the mission "Hard Rain" (I know this question is more mod specific but it's what spurred me to start this thread in the first place).
Any and all help is appreciated!
