How does one upload missions to multiplayer?
For an LAN?

I always wanted to try doing Co-op derelict missions, or Inferno, but I have no idea how...

Always put your entire question in the thread title.  Putting a meaningless sentence fragment is rude, and it discourages people from answering your question.

EDIT: to clarify, after I posted this, I edited the thread title to display the entire question. :)

Not quite certain what you're asking Mathwiz.

Re: How does one upload missions to multiplayer?
i think he wants to know how to get two LAN'd computers to play a multiplayer game that is not a standard multi mission.

you'll have to edit the mission in FRED to be multi-compatible, and you'll have to save it in a mod folder's data/missions on all computers that want to play.

However, i don't play multi anymore, so if anyone more knowledgeable would like to correct any mistakes i made...

The game automatically transfers the mission file to everyone as long as the host has it, but converting a mission to multiplayer (I mean, actually balancing it appropriately) will take some work.

Bleah, sorry bout that, didn't think the entire question would fit  :ick:

So grab the mission, FRED it into multi-compatible, and make a multi mod folder, and stick the mission in the data/missions section? Thanks.

Re: How does one upload missions to multiplayer?
To make a multiplayer mission you make a mission same as you would normally except that the first thing you should do is go to the mission specs window and change the mission type from single to whatever you're making.

Then when you add ships makes sure more than one of them is a player ship in the ships editor. Apart from that it's mostly like singleplayer.

Then either make sure that whoever hosts the game has a copy of the mission. It will xfer across to anyone who doesn't have the same copy he does.
