ACS zspecials.acs parameter numbers

Post by Enjay »

I know that I probably should know this already but, in zspecials.acs what does it mean when a special is defined like this:

Code: Select all

206:Plat_DownWaitUpStayLip(4,5),
versus

Code: Select all

205:Generic_Crusher(5),
:?:

The part that I mean is how the first one has two numbers: (4,5) versus the second one having only one number: (5).

I *think* it means that the fist one will accept 4 or 5 arguments when the script is compiled whereas the second needs exactly 5. Is that correct?

Yes, that's correct. Some specials got parameters added later. These need to be optional.

I thought that might be the reason. Thanks for confirming.
