In ArmA3 ver 1.14 there’re several comfortable workarounds with configFile for collecting subclasses. As for traditional workaround like: (configfile >> "CfgFaces") call { private ["_classes"]; _classes = []; for "_i" from 0 to ((count _this) - 1) do { if (isClass (_this select _i)) then { _classes set [count _classes, configName (_this select _i)]; }; }; _classes }; //return: ["Default"……"O_Colonel"] 8 items Alternative recommended workaround by using: BIS_fnc_getCfgSubClasses e.g. (configfile >> "CfgFaces") call BIS_fnc_getCfgSubClasses //Same as traditional workaround Another powerful replacement is using BIS_fnc_returnChildren to collect grandchildren classes with desired level, e.g. [(configfile >> "CfgFaces"),1,true,true] call BIS_fnc_returnChildren; //Return all children faces with a total number at 68 And as for another advanced workaround for direct processing collected classes, use BIS_fnc_uniqueClasses. E.g. my_array = []; [(configfile >> "BombCrater"), { my_array set [count my_array,(_this select 2) call bis_fnc_getcfgdata] } ] call BIS_fnc_uniqueClasses; //return [[0,0,0],[0,0,0],[0,0,0]]
