|Serialization of Control variables is not implemented
|Control variables cannot be saved by the game when a mission is saved, as they are specific to the time it was loaded. This means that this error will occur if such an item is saved in missionNamespace or if any script using control variables didn't run the disableSerialization command first.
To fix this you can store Control values in uiNamespace instead and make sure that any scripts handling these variables have disableSerialization set.
|Unsupported language English in stringtable
|This happens if an entry was not found in the desired language e.g., English
|Cannot delete class xxxx, it is referenced somewhere (used as a base class probably)
|This happens if you try and delete a config entry that is inherited by another class. For more info see delete
|Updating base class RscShortcutButton->RscButton...
|Caused by inheriting from wrong config while modifiying an existing base class. Currently Arma 3 has a lot of these issues out of the box.
