'archived' files

<div class="IPBDescription">Causing lots of trouble</div>Ok, I'm getting angry, because its very very late and I can't sleep and my hard drive is playing games with me.

I cannot compile new versions of my map with the same name, because the map files are set on 'archive' mode (in properties, at bottom, a checkbox). I can manually un-archive mode it, but then when I make a new file it sets it to archive mode.

Does anyone know of a way I can stop this? It's getting on my tired nerves.


PS - I think archive files are writable manually but programs (like compilers or worms, which may want to overwrite/delete them) cannot do anything to them -- they cause a lot of trouble for patches and installers.

    Hmm, very interesting.  Sorry I can't help.  <!--emo&:(--><img src="http://www.natural-selection.org/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('><!--endemo-->

    I have a problem compiling maps as well.  When I give a map a title of more than 8 characters, the compiler tools try looking for ns_blah~1.map or something, like its still using the old DOS short file names.  I have Windows ME, which as far as I know doesn't run off of DOS anymore.  Does anyone know how I can change it to use long file names?
