In ArmA3 ver 1.14, it is recommended to use BIS_fnc_GetCfgData to get variable cfg data rather than conditioning via isNumber, isText, isArray, getNumber, getText and getArray combination. E.g.
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;
