Hi, I have an Arma 2 server(Whatever the latest build is at this time). I've made a mission for it with respawns, few scripts, and no mods. However, when I add the mission to the server's mpmission folder, you can't connect to the server, it just says "Session Lost." When I delete the mission out of the folder, you can connect to the server again and choose a mission from the list like normal. My server.cfg is very minimal as well.

I've tried to make a few missions now. I originally downloaded WF Benny edition and have been playing with that on the server just fine, so I wanted to make my own missions.

The first problem I had was that the "Export to Multiplayer" in the editor did not export a .pbo file to the arma2 root/mpmissions folder, or anywhere else for that matter, so I had to download a PBO tool and pack up my saved mission from the editor manually. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not, it may have everything to do with it, but all of them cause the server to kick you out at the joining stage and say "Session Lost." At least until I delete that mission.

I've searched high and low, and most threads don't have anything to do with my particular problem.

Oh yeah, and these manually packed pbo mission work when you create a server from the client menu, just not the dedicated.

passwordAdmin = "****";

logFile = "arma2srv.log"
maxplayers = 12;

disableVoN = 1;

BattlEye = 1;

persistent = 1;

Edit: I just tried pboview to pack the mission and I still get the same result. It's also kinda frustrating since gamespy croaked on us and every time the client tries to call out to gamespy for the internet list, it freezes for about 15 20 seconds. If any of you know a fix for this, that'd be AWESOME!

Edit 2: Turns out I missed the part where you have to run .tollower to make sure all the files are not capitalized....including when you go to add missions. My bad.
