Hi all
I downloaded ArmA edit and went the the breifing section but couldn't really figure out what to do. I also downloaded a breifing tutorial but that didn't really help either. I was wondering if I could get some help. I know it has something to do with the HTML.

You fill in the fields for the briefing and create. Plan and Notes fields are really all you need for a starter mission. Then save the resulting html file to your mission.

Only tricky part for me was mastering the markers. Basically you create markers on your missions the using ArmA itself and note the names used. Then when doing the briefing enter a marker name in the "Marker Name" field, highlight some briefing text to bind to that marker and click "Insert Hyperlink" to create special html to reference that marker.

Objectives are goals for your mission. You're just entering the text of the objective here and whether it's hidden or done at the start of the mission. You'll have to use triggers and/or scripts to alter the states of those objectives during the mission. Mr Murray's guide is good for explaining this part.

Similar stuff for endings. You're just adding text for them and have to add triggers/scripts just like objectives.

I am fear.
