When i go into the game and press edit it says i have to start the game with -edit
wich i do
and the map editor starts loading up but fails "failed to open file /home/editor/defaults.ini in the read_only mode"
and then shuts down,
what i want to do is to create a empty map were i can build a map from,
i also tryed to start with -edit europe parameter wich give me same error aswell
and i start it as administrator.
