I have got several mission packs but don't know how to install them. They talk about ".tie" files and "mission.lst" if anyone can help me please do...

The .tie are the mission files and they should be placed in Alliance\missions
also the .lst files should be placed there.
Don't the mission pack have a installation program?

Yeah they have installation instructions of about 2 lines which isn't very helpful. I installed the .tie files I just don't know how to edit the mission.lst

You can use notepad or something similar
to open it.
Add this at the end.
!BATTLE_8_HEADER![Battle 8:your battle]

The LST files are pretty self explanetory, some evan have a few comments on how things are set out at the top of the file.
Here's a little breakdown, the #'s are just to show you which parts go into the LST file.
this first bit seperates the new missions into a new battle, battle 8 in this case
## !BATTLE_8_HEADER![Name Of Battle]
This number, just make it 1 more than the last mission in the list, last mission was number 52 so this one would be 53
This is where you put in the filename of the mission, note that there is a space between the * and the mission filename.
## * missionfile.TIE
Next is the 1 line description for the mission. Note that xx is where you put the number from above, eg 53.
## !MISSION_xx_DESC!mission description here
From here on just repeat so you would have
!BATTLE_8_HEADER![Name Of Battle]
!MISSION_53_DESC!mission 53 description here
!MISSION_54_DESC!mission 54 description here
and so on.
Some of the editors can do all this for you when you build the mission, AlliED can I believe.
