I don't think there is a specific FAQ for this.   Tell us more about the problem and we'll try to help.     What did you do?   What went wrong?    Do official single missions included with the game play ok?

 Yes,all my regular single missions in OFP and Red Hammer work just fine.I download the missions[5 so far],unzip them,then paste them in the missions folder.They start to initialize then I am thrown back to the main menu screen. :-[

A few things could be wrong:

wrong version- so best to get 1.96 since it takes all mission versions

wrong add ons or missing addons- lose the mission or download the add ons

not unzipped- you understand this so this isn't the problem probably

not in right folder- mp missions go in the mp missions and single player missions go in the missions folder, stay clear of your users Winslynn missions folder

the mission just doesn't plain work- not much you can do here, delete it or yell at the author :D

U could name and tell us where the mission came from too...

 I have version 1.75 of OFP,when I tried to install 1.96 it said I needed version1.85 in order to install 1.96.Arghhh!
 I tried to get version 1.85,the first site said it was outdated and replaced by 1.96.Arghhh!
 I will try to find 1.85 somewhere else I guess. :P

You realize you need OFP: Resistance (the expansion to CWC) in order to patch past 1.46?

Official patches here. (http://www.flashpoint1985.com/index2.html)   You can patch directly from Resistance (1.75) to 1.96.
