Category:New features[edit]

Of course, technically ACS pre-dates doom's source code release (in Hexen), but it is still a 'new feature' to doom, and since that's the primary focus of this wiki, I think it belongs. -- Jdowland 18:59, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)

"Note that a script is defined somewhat like a function in C, aside from the oddity that it does not have to be terminated after the bracket with a semicolon like all other statements."

This is also the case in C. Function definitions do not have semicolons after their closing brackets, and if a semicolon exists, it will be interpreted as an empty statement at the top level. Some reminders on function definitions vs declarations: [1] 21:09, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Mixes ZDoom and Hexen[edit]

This is written as if it were for a ZDoom wiki; it needs to start with Hexen's specific data and then add ZDoom (or other) implementations below in a section name something like "Use and expansion in source ports". There is a more or less understandable reason for the article's current state, it was taken from the ZDoom docs, but it's not well integrated to this wiki as it stands.

"Bumping" discussion to note this is still a problem 5 years later. No mention of Eternity or other ports that support ACS and, in some cases, the same extensions as ZDoom. --Quasar 17:35, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
I've edited the article to be more specific to ACS0. I've probably went way too technical, but I'll leave it to someone else to sort that out. If we would like to go further in the direction of documenting the byte code format here, a more or less complete reference is available in my ACC++ manual's byte code section and appendix B: I have no problems with any of the information there being reproduced here.

need to tie this to BEHAVIOR article etc[edit]

  • this article should indicate that compiled ACS goes into a BEHAVIOR lump (one per map), link to BEHAVIOR.
  • document the ACS bytecode as well as the raven "front end" language (and agree on terminology for that)
  • point out alternative ACS compilers (David PH's?)
