Steps To Reproduce

Repo:

  1. Run attached mission
  2. Notice how the game freezes
Additional Information

In file createConfigOverview.sqf the relevant line is 46:

_array pushBack _temp;

Disabling that makes the mission complete as usual.

It seems related to string escaping as on stable arrays from config are returned as:

["_temp","{""(0/2300)"",""(0/2260)""}"]

while in the latest dev branch its

["_temp","{}"]

(see and diff attached log files)

That said at the end of dev.log it shows a run with the pushBack active and the freezes happens already earlier.

The problem is with this:

for "" ....

Empty variable names are now not allowed, so it freezes forever when it hits this loop. Marking resolved
