Issue description
If you place a Texts.txt file in a mission's folder it overrides any .wri files the mission else would be using. Many of the original missions have this file. This causes problems when creating mods as this apparently also affects missions with the same name. E.g. if you have a mission __RU/01_cont is your mod then the Texts.txt from the original Russian mission overrides any .wri you would want to use in your mod. I can't see why you should be able to override the .wri files at all so I would request this feature to be disabled.

Modifyed the code so that texts.txt is only loaded from the mods folder. The exception being when it can't load a wri file.
