Author is not a value, backwards compatibility needed
New, NormalPublic

Description

The game now reads cfg patches authors on mission load and save.
Problem is that some mod PBOs had that value in there for a long time in a form of array.
Among my communities mod pack that problem exist for cba, ace, alive, rhs and tons of other mods.
Please, add some backwards compatibility for this.
One solution would be probably to teach that author thing to read array or just ignore any other value other than string.

CBA fixed it on their end so it's not a valid example anymore. But tons of other addons still have author as an array.
BUT, there's apparently a fix on dev-branch that arrived just now.
EXE rev. 136975 (game)
