OK I just ran into a thing that might have been creating the problem that @cbff33 is having/had in trying to export a faction. This may be some things to ask @SpyderBlack723 or @Tupolov or any other developer.
I went through and exported a new faction with the full CfgPatches with pictures and I was able to get the faction to export but the names will not show up in the menu on the right side in the editor.
However as I exported the faction I found a folder that was created in my Arma 3 installation that was named "ocnpla" which was the faction name of O_CNPLA. Inside the folder are several items that I am going to show here:
So my question here is how do these files translate into being able to export the faction properly when you export using the images?
Don't know how I missed this last night/ early this morning other than I just completely whiffed on the search function and I found this thread this morning. Getting images to display properly by 1-506 Ranger
