View Full Version : Read Only Missions
Jan 14 2007, 15:44
Okay, ArmA's fantastic - fact.
I have a problem, though. Basically, my friend and I are working on a new mission for ArmA (it is roleplaying, but y'know, so what). Basically, he sends me a mission, and it won't open in the editor or de-pbo because it's read only... He wants to know how to make his missions not read only, so we can progress with the making of this mission.
All help appreciated =]
Right click the mission file and un-check the 'read only' field (I think).

You need a program to de-pbo it as you say. But hey, skip that and have him send you the mission.
The mission that can be edited is in
My documents/ArmA Other Profiles/His character name/Missions(or MPmissions)/mission name
he needs to zip up all these files (may only be one) and send that to you.

Right Click open with notepad. If it doesn't open then Instead get the friend to send you a copy of the file in txt form where he opens it with notepad and saves it as text. Then you can just rename the txt file sqs. If he can't open it then there is your problem.
Otherwise it's you. So here it is.
C:\Documents and Settings\Nameofyourscreen\My Documents\ArmA Other Profiles\Yourcharactername\missions
Now create a folder named: Something.Sara (for the whole island)
Or create a folder named: Something.Intro (for the tiny island)
Now put the mission.sqs file in it.
