Problem running user missions.
« on: 05 Dec 2008, 02:18:24 »
I finally got around to download some of the user missions and try them
but every time I try to play a user mission I get this error
"No Entry 'bin\config.bin/cfgWorlds.0' "
and a couple even freeze the pc.

I have done a full reinstall just now and still get same errors.
I can play Bi missions and use editor no problem.
My own models etc work fine.

I have arma 1.14

Any ideas what is wrong ??

Just a shout out.....Did you ever discover the cause of this problem for you?
When you said you downloaded user missions, did you mean from the beta forums?
If so, did you make sure that they were not using Queens Gambit expansion pack or some other addon island?

Hi, your user mission isn't loading?

What user mission are you trying to load and what island or world are you trying to load? What version of OFP do you have 1.46 or 1.96?

If it's an ArmA user created island or something that may be the problem, or you are missing other configurations for it or addons.

Let me know thanks.. :)

Let me guess: the mission is not PBOed but in its own directory and the directory name of the mission contains more than one dot? If so, read on:

ArmA (and probably OFP, too) uses the dots in the directory names to specify the island where the mission takes place (missionname.island). If you have a mission like foobar_v0.8.15.Sara ArmA will search for the island "8" (because that's what's between the second and the third dot in the name). If you try to load this mission you will get the following error:

   No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWorlds.8'.

The solution is simple: remove the additional dots (e.g. foobar.Sara)!

Thanks to Spooner for putting dots in his mission names and to Sysinternals for the magnificent ProcMon!
