More missions with the same name ?

Recommended Posts

Something strange happened to me and it's not the first time.
I am learning to work with the Mission Editor and I have created a basic mission that is gradually being implemented with new units, objects, commands, etc.
Each time I save the new mission in the same folder, but changing the name, both in the mission properties and in the file.
When I go to test the IL-2 mission, I find that the last mission has the same name as the previous one ... So I have 2 different missions but with the same name. Obviously I know that the bottom is the most recent so I can test that.
I tried to simply "save" or use the "save as", but there is nothing to do. In ME I actually have two missions with two different names, but when I close the ME and move to the simulator I always find two missions with the same name.
However, If I save the mission in another folder, then I find it in IL-2 with the right name.
Any ideas on what may have happened?

Try saving the new version as 'save as' with a new name and save it NOT in your normal directory or folder. 

 

Then copy it from there to your missions folder. Both should then display.

Wellcome to some editor odd things!!  Editor has a rare obsesion for conserving names, so save your missions with new names...

See the last bullet point on pg. 183 of the mission editor manual.

Thank you Jim.

I have deleted both ctreecache.eng and mtreecache.eng files and now I can save the new mission with an other name and see it correctly when I load in IL-2.

I only hope not to have to do this job every time I save a modified mission ...

You're welcome. 

 

Just be sure to change both the file name and mission properties name for a new version of a mission and you'll be good to go.
