Use getNumber to get boolean values from a config file. 1 equals true, 0 equals false and if no value is found (when a valid variable is undefined) 0.67 is returned.

With an not existing entry, getNumber returns 0.

(ArmA3 1.14), It's recommended to use BIS_fnc_getCfgData or BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry to get variable cfg data rather than conditioning via isNumber, isText, isArray, getNumber, getText and getArray combination.
Traditional workaround: _cfg = configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type" switch ( true ) do { case (isNumber _cfg): {getNumber _cfg}; case (isText _cfg): {getText _cfg}; case (isArray _cfg): {getArray _cfg;}; default {nil}; }; Recommended workaround: (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type") call BIS_fnc_getCfgData; To return default value once entry was not found, we can use BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry instead of BIS_fnc_getCfgData. [(configFile >> "CannonFire" >> "LightExp"),"lifeTime",0] call BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry;//0.5 To compose collected Number into Array, use BIS_fnc_getCfgDataArray instead. (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type") call BIS_fnc_getCfgDataArray; To retype collected Number into Boolean, use BIS_fnc_getCfgDataBool. Anything bigger than 0 is true, otherwise false. (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type") call BIS_fnc_getCfgDataBool;
