This command is unreliable/broken when it comes to some non-ASCII characters (as of Arma 3 1.58): "Mörser" splitString "" -> ["M"," "," ","r","s","e","r"] "Mörser" splitString "ö" -> ["M","rser"] "Mörser" splitString "ä" -> ["M"," rser"]

This commands works only with ASCII chars, any chars with codes > 127, also used in different languages, will be converted to [" ", " "]. Use toArray to preserve special characters: _spaced = toArray "Mörser" apply {toString [_x]} joinString " "; // M ö r s e r
