My first mission

posted Aug 27, 2011 02:17:27 by CaseyHelmick
So I've had the game for a few weeks now and I'd like to start learning how to make my own missions on here. I started off by reading the thread about mission scripts and decided to just start at the top, work my way down and learn each step as I go.... And boy I didn't get far. So I was trying to set up the folders, I created a MISS folder in the missions section, went into that folder and tried to create a XML file. Opened word, and tried to save the blank document as a XML file in this folder but kept getting a message telling me I do not have permissions to save in this location. I am running Vista and running all applications as the admin.

Yeah, vista has very tight restrictions about how files can be manipulated in the typical program files. You might have better luck reinstalling Artemis to a folder called c:\games\ or something. Also, use a real XML editor or even notepad for your XML files. Word is a poor choice for such editing.

Blah....... noob question. How do you reinstall? When I got the game it was sent through a link in email and said that the link will be taken down in a few days.also what xml editor do you advise? On one final note I run a gaming group, we do table top games like dnd and other rpgs. I was wondering if anyone has merged the rpg feel of these games with artemis and what all they've done

You might be able to just "Take Ownership" of the folder. (If I recall, just right-click on the folder and "Take Ownership" is one of the options.) That should give you full rights over it and its contents.

As for XML editors, Notepad (Or better yet, Notepad++) seems to work well, but others use XML Pad Pro I believe, which is probably your best bet.

I've given up on programming anything on a Vista machine. I installed Windows 7 instead.
