Okay, some assuming lets say the TS is what you'd like to change: 


  1. DE-PBO the file: Open the pbo with pbomanager. Right click and select "Extract to Invade&Annex.Altis"
  2. Open the "Invade&Annex.altis" folder. You'll now see a few folders and a few files.
  3. Right click on "description.ext" and open with notepad or Notepad++ (Download Notepad++ if you haven't very handy!)
  4. Now look at line 5 and change to your own teamspeak. Everything in this file is well explained but only touch things you understand.
  5. Click save and close.
  6. Right click "mission.sqm" open with notepad or notepad++
  7. Ctrl + F and search for "ts.ahoy" and change all the teamspeaks to that of your own.
  8. Click Save and close.
  9. Open the scripts folder -> misc folder -> Right click on diary and open with notepad or ++ again
  10. Scroll down to teamspeak and change to your teamspeak, click save and close.
  11. Now you need to PBO the file again.
  12. Open PBO manager.
  13. Click the Green down arrow button and locate the Invade&annex.altis folder that you just been editing.
  14. Right click on the folder -> Scroll to PBO Manager -> select "Pack into "Invade&Annex.Pbo""
  15. Now assuming you made no errors while editing the mission should be good to go!


Hope this helps!
