Hi,

I have legitimate copies of IF Lib 44 patched to 1.05 and Arma2CO patched up to 1.62.  I ran the conversion tool and it was successful.  Next I looked to see if @IF folder was there etc...  Launched Arma2CO and looked in the mission editor list of islands...  All four Iron Front Liberation 44 maps are not listed, accept the DLC Omaha 44 map...  Has this happened to anyone here?  Now the funny thing is when I try IronFront lite the maps are listed in mission editor?  I don't get it?  Any suggestions appreciated.  Thanks[confused]

Hi, Welcome to IF Fan Forums!
Sorry to read about your troubles, i never heard or read about nor had any issues myself with the IF maps not listed in the editor.
Look in your Arma2 directory, locate the @IF folder and then go into the addons folder, look for files that say Baranow, Ivachev,Panovo, & Staszow.
If you find them there should be the map name and then 3 files with the name with these titles _data  _layers _wrp

If you have those and all 4 maps then you have the maps.
Next check the file size for those maps, if you view your folder under the details tab it will give you the size of each pbo in kb.

So to start with the
baranow_data.pbo is 143kb
baranow_layers.pbo is 199,766kb
baranow_wrp.pbo is 3,868kb

Correct? If not check the other files to see if they have a size if they say 0kb then i suggest deleting the @IF folder and redoing the conversion.

Now if you have the files and they are not 0kb and theres a size there then i suggest you check your target line and your launching the game with @IF.
Can you post your RPT?
It can be found here:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA

Please post the whole RPT, when you do at the bottom of the reply is a button titled
"more reply options", hit that then use the < > greater than , less than brackets at the top where all the functions are, and put the code in between, like this:

Code:
code


the code button is to the left of the " quotation marks.
I ask this as the rpt can be long and the code enables it to scroll, also I need to see the entire thing so select all and copy and paste it.

I will get back to hopefully later today, unless someone else answers first.

What the conversion tool does, im not 100% sure, but what i do know is that your Iron Front is copied and then reformatted, so yes basically the .IFA files that is vanilla IF is reformatted to .pbo which can be read by Arma2CO, so as you can see with this "conversion" of .IFA to .pbo the game IF can be played in Arma2CO and modded, whereas vanilla cant, because of the configuration structure of the files.
Anyways post that rpt as specified above, we'll start there.

I reinstalled Iron Front patched all the way to 1.05.  I still have Arma2CO patched to 1.62.  Did the conversion and still no maps etc....  I know it says patch Arma2CO to 1.63, but I don't think it should be an issue if I have 1.62....

No worries, it happens, you learned something, and possibly someone else viewing this thread have also.
Anytime you have issues or questions, dont hesitate to ask, were all here for the same game [wink]
