Creating a multiplayer mission on Southern Sahrani. Will run fine in SP testing, runs fine in MP testing through the Editor. All triggers, tasks, waypoints, AI movements, etc... are running fine. I have confidence that the scenario is made properly through the Editor.
What I do not have confidence in is anything else I've done - or not done - related to getting this mission up and running. Meaning, I know zero about pbo's, I know next to nothing about sqf files, and I know that's a problem. I feel competent with the Editor, with waypoints, triggers, tasks, tasks that trigger another task, etc. Is there any way that I can follow a linear guideline to help me get this mission up and running?
When I try to Export it to multiplayer, the mission shows up as Green in the scenario list, with a ".Sara Lite" extension, and I can host it. My friends can join. But there are not active slots there for us to join (I created three squads, and they don't show up). Conversely, when I try another method - going to the multiplayer browser and hosting through there, I have had a few times where the mission name appears, friends can join (to help test it. I know I have to put it on the Steam workshop at some point. I want to get it working first.)...and they can "slot up" by picking a rifleman or autorifleman, etc.
However, upon launching the mission, they are all booted from the game and sent back to the lobby. With NO error message. I am able to stay in the game, of course. And all triggers, tasks, waypoints, etc... all work. Is there anyone or any way that I can get help with determining what I'm doing wrong? Clearly, I have missed a few steps in the mission creation process.
