Where is the documentation?

Recommended Posts

I am looking into making some multiplayer flights. However, The system seems a bit cryptic to just jump in. I have a reference manual that I printed off some time ago but it only goes through the actual gameplay and none of the menus etc. I found on the UBI soft site a spanish version of the user manual. And that would really help me a lot... if I spoke Spanish.


I guess about the only thing I haven't done is check my CD1 for a user manual. Maybe I will do that.


Anyone have a place they can direct me to to help me build some multiplayer missions?

The main documents are located in C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Eagle Dynamics\Lock On\Doc. If you have Flaming Cliffs, look especially for LO FC Quick Start Manual 1.1 (page 48)


There's also this mission editor web-page Mission Editor


And Merging is also useful.

In order to change a single player mission to a multi-player mission, you can change a flight of, for example, 4 planes to 4 multi-player clients with the Merge function.

1) Select and Load the Single player mission you want to convert

2) Save it AS a new mission - new_mission_mp for example

3) Select the Flight that needs converting so that it's HighLighted.

4) On the Edit Menu, select the Merge option

5) Up will pop a list of missions

6) Double-Click on the new_mission_mp

7) What happens now is that a new flight is added as Merged_1

8) SAVE the mission by hitting the Save button at the Top

9) repeat the same steps starting with Step 4

10) When you have done it 2 more times, you will have 4 flights

11) In order to finish the multiplayer, you are going to have to edit the 4 flights

___ a) change the original flight to 1 player and to Client

___ b) the other Merged flights are going to need to have the first and last waypoints changed to Takeoff and Land

___ c) The Attack waypoints and the targets in the other Merged flights are going to be needed to be added back. The Weapon loadouts should be the same
