Hello

I´m new in armaholic forum and trying to learn how to use the mission editor and to be able to create new mp missions. But i keep running into some problems that i can´t figure out.

The problem that i have is that when i start to make new mission, add few bluefor units and then i hit the save button to save it in "editorsave" so i get the first mission folder so i can include some scripts. Then i tried to include virtual ammobox system into my mission.
I added into mission folder description.ext with
#include "gear\common.hpp"
#include "gear\menu.hpp"
Then i copied gear folder into my mission folder, added an ammobox and included initialization file
this addAction["<t color='#ff1111'>Virtual Ammobox</t>", "gear\open.sqf"];
and hit the save button.

Then i test it out by preview, and everything is working. Virtual ammobox script is working and i can change weapons and so on. OK, moving on. adding some more bluefor units, opfor units and making mission playable.

Then its time to "convert" everything into MP mission. What I did was simply use ingame "save as" function and select select "save as MP mission". Then I test out the mp mission by starting server, but the VAS is not working.
I used pbo editor to check the pbo file, and find out that pbo didn´t have my description.ext or gear folder included.

Should they be in mp mission pbo file?
I don´t know should everything inside the editor mission folder to be packed into pbo or how its supposed to work.
What i´m doing wrong?

Hope that you can understand my bad english.. it´s bit rusty..

Yes,
All scripts files ect,. the mission needs to function should be in the same folder as the mission.sqm
Mission ingame looks for scripts in the folder that is packed (pbo'd), so if their not in there then you'll get script.sqf or whatever error.

mrwan74:
u save u'r mission as user mission ,press ALT + TAb , or quit the game . then go to this :
C:\Users\[YOU'R USER NAME ]\Documents\ArmA 3 Other Profiles\[YOU'R INGAME USER NAME ]\UserSaved\missions\.
And pbo you'r mission using CPBO or any tool u like . im not sure if this info is accurate . cuz i dont have arma 3 yet
im too lazy to write it again.
Tajin:
1. Get any tool capable of creating .pbo files.
2. Got to your ArmA3 folder under documents, look for the folder containing your mission.sqm
3. Create a pbo of that folder.
4. Use that pbo as mission-file.

The export function in the editor seems to only package the default files, so you're better off using an external program for that.

Added 1 minute later:

this was copyed from another post i made . the save function doesn't save anything excluding mission.sqm . you have to manually add them to you'r mission , and pbo it ,and move it to MP missions folder.

@Miccos
Is it possible that you edited/changed the name of the mission when you used the "save as" option?

Thanks for your advices.

I think that i have figured it out. Just like you said, all files in the user mission folder need to be inlcuded in mp mission pbo. With PBO manager I just added description.ext and gear folder in my mission pbo and everything seems to be working.

Now i need to find good pbo tool.

Thanks for you all!
