Tutorial | Mission properties menu (F9)

This tutorial has been written by me for Russian Men of War community. It is useful for beginners, but maybe experienced user learns something new in here.

Call this menu with F9 key in F3 mode. This menu uses for mission configuration.

Mission properties menu (F9)

Show section

It is used for comfortable work. Example: You have a lot of areas on the map or waypoints that you have to register in trigger. Here comes to the rescue the Show section. You mark necessary to you branch, and it always displayed on the screen. This tab consists of:
Waypoints - always display the waypoints on the screen.
Zones - always display zones on the screen.
Covers - always display covers on the screen.

Next section is Player. It is divided into :
Player - Player selection indicating your units at the start of the game the player will switch automatically to the specified here
Diplomacy - indicates the relationship between specific players (enemy, ally, neutral)
Aliases - here you can reduce the number of players of participants (in the count), the default is 8, and just come up with the name of the player or name of his opponent (for example German troops, my boys, etc)
