How to make a Userconfig:

Some quick notes from what I learned while trying to use it for a mission. (a.k.a. What I wish somebody had written already) --MaHuJa


The \userconfig folder should be located in the root Arma 3 game directory, typically in your main Steam folder, \Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\


Description.ext

class X {
  #include "\userconfig\MY_addon\Somefile.hpp"
};


\userconfig\MY_addon\Somefile.hpp

class Y {
  key = value;
}


Use:

ucval = getNumber (missionConfigFile >> "X" >> "Y" >> "key")


Skipping class X means the user could introduce anything into the description.ext Note that #include WILL fail with a CTD if the somefile.hpp doesn't exist.

missionConfigFile is used when the mission does the include from description.ext campaignConfigFile is similar but for a campaign configFile is about the "global config" of unit types, vehicle types, and so on - this is the area added to by addons.
