You can find the Arma 2 Mission editing FAQ here.

Arma Script Examples
- Ghost's Assorted Scripts (These are a collection of scripts I have written over the past few years)

LoadScreen Library - a list of A2:OA stock-loadscreens incl. preview pictures
In A2:OA it is possible to define a picture that will be displayed while your mission is loading.
This works via loadscreen-command in description.ext.
I made a list of all loading-pictures I could find in A2:CO.
The .pdf-document contains paths and preview-pictures as well as a small guide for creating custom-loadscreens.
The download contains also two sample-missions incl. image-files - thats why its ~1,5MB.
