Sadly, many others have done the same. Sorry, I cannot be of more help. I do not know the editor well, either. I only know a few things as I tried to work through problems.

From what I remember, the saved names are weird. I think that there are two or three fields you need to change in order to get the game to recognize your scenario.

Here is a procedure you might try to follow:
1. Load an official MP scenario you know works
2. Modify it to your own liking by adding and deleting.
3. Make sure you save it under different names. Here is the weird part. Even if you save under a new scenario name, the game may not recognize it because you did not change all the name data fields.
4. You must make a line-by-line comparison between files to see what is different and what needs to be changed. It is a difficult and painful process.

By starting with a format that is known to work, I think that you can make your own MP scenario work.

what kind of defrences should i look for

Yes, I think that there are several possible causes for the crash. My friends and I have encountered such instability with MP scens. Some scens will open one day and not work on another day. We have tried all kinds of different solutions. We have been able to fix some, but not all the scenarios we try to play. I think that a large number of problems is in how the sides and save file names are set.

All I can suggest is that you compare your scenario with the scenarios you know to work for certain. Look for differences in and there is where you will probably find your solution.

when i make a mp mission that i worked on for 4 houres i chose it as the mission i want to play in the mp screen and the loading circle stops and my game crashes

That is true. The AI is weak and MP is okay just be careful not to overload the machine with big scenarios or lots of missiles. Otherwise, you can usually get through a scenario.

What problems are you encountering with the Editor?

No, the game has no manual for the editor. Some users managed to figure out a few things, but most of the knowledge is empirical. It is easy to insert units, but difficult to get them to do anything intelligent.
