Hi there

Firstly before I go any further. I have spend 12-13 hours looking for information and trying find anything that would help. So far I have found a lot information but it has not solved my problems.

basically I have bought a Dedi server and started setting it up. I basically want set-up some parameter using the Domination 2.54 with Revive in Takistan. I installed the PBO and got it running on server. when I got in problems when I wanted to enable 3D person view outside of vehicles. this where I have started reading and learning.

from my understanding, I need to Unpack the Mission PBO, edit the "description.ext" and change the value of the "no_3rd_person" to "1" which I have done. I unpacked the PBO using the cpbo provided with it made the association with PBO files. where things seem to get messed up is in the Repacking of the PBO, when I repack it all it does not work on sever, after uploading it, when I join the server it gets stuck on "waiting for host"

when repacking the server, I have selected the folder and used the repack option with CPBO and it repacks them.


I have looked on forums and Google searches for possible answers, but I can't find much about PBO packing or Editing Domination for ARMA2 OA. some stuff for ARMA1 but nothing to specific. I am bit stuck and really would appeachate some help or pointers in right derection. I am sorry if this been posted before I did do search but I cannot find very much.

possible issues, that I think might be effecting it.

Firstly when I first started looking at the Unpacked PBO and stared looking at files, I made file assosation with .sqf files with notepad. thinking about it now, this might be issue any idea's?

This leads to my second question. How I can add extra Vehicles to the maps. I understand to get them to respawn and such, I will need add scripts, but for now, I am happy for them not re spawn until I can understand bit more about scripting. so again any help with this would be appreciated.

Unpack the .PBO mission file, then load it into your missions folder under your profile, so that you can open it in the editor.

After you've made the changes that you need in the description.ext, load up the mission in editor, save, and then use the in-game export function. It is important that you save before re-packing, so that your client will realise that the "new" mission will be different from any missions that may be stored in the cache.

When exported through the editor you will find the PBO files in the main game directoy under missions or MPmissions folder.

or in some special cases:

Evil_Echo:
Check your AppData\Local\VirtualStore folder in your user account, may be a hidden folder. You should see an entry for Bohemia Interactive in either "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)". Your saved pbos for single and multiplayer missions are in folders there.


This leads to my second question. How I can add extra Vehicles to the maps. I understand to get them to respawn and such, I will need add scripts, but for now, I am happy for them not re spawn until I can understand bit more about scripting. so again any help with this would be appreciated.

This can be done in the editor, when you have unpacked the PBO. I suggest you take some time to learn the basics, by reading some tutorials and our newbie FAQ. This is a totally different question though and I would suggest starting a new topic when you are ready.
