Large CustomAttributes break briefing name
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Having a large CustomAttributes config (or any other config before Mission>Intel) in a mission.sqm breaks the briefing name of the mission and the PBO name gets shown in the mission selection screen instead.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Eden Editor
Steps To Reproduce
  • Create a new mission
  • Select Attributes -> General
  • Enter a title in the Presentation section
  • Enter a very long text in the Overview section (using a Lorem Ipsum generator for example)
  • Save the mission and export it to multiplayer
  • Launch a dedicated server and connect to it
  • The mission will be shown by its filename and not the selected title

Example Mission PBO

Additional Information

I assume Arma only reads a couple kb of the mission.sqm before trying to read the briefing name. Because a bunch of config classes such as the CustomAttributes class are saved in front of the Mission class, this won't be enough.
