Thanks for your reply. I feared that this would be the case but well, "if you
don't ask you won't know", I guess. :)
Well I at least came up with an idea on how to solve this. I don't know if I'm
going to implement this idea but IF I would do it like this:
Even if I cannout mount the file I can check pretty good if it is located in an
archive or in physical form in the "missions/" directory.
If it's in an archive I probably just read out the HOG and write it to
"missions/" physically. In short: extracting the file. If the mission is
unloading, this temporary HOG could be removed/deleted/overwritten.
Anyways thanks for the help!
