Hello there, my name is Chudley and I'm an old mission editing addict. I made a mission called Paratroopers
for OFPEC waaaaay back in 2002, and tried to make some others but my imagination exceeded my know-how and they were never released.
I quit OFP in 2004, and aside from checking out ArmA for a short time, I haven't really looked at the game (I say game.. what I really mean is OFP > ArmA 3). Anyway, I picked up ArmA 2 on Steam yesterday and figured I'd make some missions.
The problem I have is I can't remember any of my old tried and tested tools for mission editing (except the COMREF
Anyway, what I really want to find is:
- A PBO packer/unpacker
- A good text editing application
- Anything else you guys think is a must have for editing ArmA 2 missions
I've tried looking through the Tools sections in OFPEC, Armaholic et al.. there's simply too many to go through, therefore I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
Cheers in advance.
