In this article, we'll be going over how to set up a custom mission on the server.

  1. Log into your game control panel
  2. View your game service
  3. Click the file manager icon
  4. Navigate to the 'mpmission' folder and open it
  5. Click the upload icon to upload your mission .pbo file
  6. Once you have uploaded the file, open up the Configuration File menu of the control panel.
  7. Find and open up the server.cfg
  8. Navigate through the file until you come across the mission template settings.
  9. By default, the mission name will be set to 'ChangeMe.Altis'
  10. Change the mission name to be the exact same name as the mission .pbo file you uploaded, but do not include .pbo at the end of it.
  11. Save the server.cfg.


If you want the server to auto start the mission when the server is turned on, you will want to enable the Auto Initialize option in your custom command line in the command line manager.

  1. Log into your game control panel
  2. View your game service
  3. Open your Commandline Manager, click on the Custom Commandlines tab. If you have not already created a custom Commandline, create a new one
  4. Enable the option for Auto Initialize
  5. Save your custom command line
  6. Go back to the Commandline manager and press the Select button on the right-hand side of your custom Commandline, this should change the button to Selected and make the text bold
