Installing FS2, FS2_Open and mods
These three things have been a source of confusion to many people. I know I've answered hundreds if not thousands of questions on this subject so I finally decided to bite the bullet and write a single monolithic guide on how to do all three as simply as I can. The idea is to show you how to install with as little fuss as possible while limiting the problems you may face in the future.
