- If this is a mission made with the Eden Editor, you'll need a software from the Arma 3 Tools (CfgConvert to be specific), to "un-pack" the mission.sqm file in to human readable text, and vice versa so the game can read it back. If the download size of Arma 3 Tools is too big for you, or it seems unnecessary, I can provide you links to an alternative and much smaller tool set called Mikero Tools.
You can actually save the mission sqm as unbinarized from in-game. If you go to the mission attributes it has a tickbox to select whether you want to binarize the mission fire. I always untick this, as its easier for me to edit later and I'm not fussed about other players viewing the raw data.
