Cannot see any other posts about this. Today I was hunting for commands I used in 5.4.0. in 5.5.1. as I moved to the "new" version of ACTools recently.

and I could not find {return} in blue writing as in 5.4.0.


I looked thru the Command and Macros Window on the right and looked in Special Variables.


Noticed the { } brackets around the a but below no closing } bracket after the commands.

Removed a } bracket after a {return} command in a macro I opened with 5.5.1. and the word 'return' turned blue. I am about to run the code to see if it works without the closing } bracket.


Ok, the code will not run without the closing } bracket.


I ask if this is a bug as such, because I use the blue words as a guide when I'm hunting thru my code to find an area fast. No biggie, just something I just found.

Okay, the {Return} is in the Command list Special Keys, right after {DEL}


And, I had already fixed the issue with the closing curly bracket. And uploaded in the post HERE.

So, if you have not already done so, you need to download the fixed commands.xml file from the mentioned post. and place it in the same directory as your 5.5.1 installation. And Yes, overwight the one there.



And for all special key and special constant keywords. The have to have a opening curly bracket and a closing curly bracket. Else they won't work or showup in their highlighted color.

Do the following before posting, or asking:

1) Read the AC Tool Help File.
2) Read the Release Notes, aka the README.TXT file, for any new information not in the AC Tool Help file.
3) Read through the AC Tool FAQ.
4) Try to code the script/macro you want.
5) Look at any of the script/macros posted on the forums. Use them as examples of what can be done for your game and script/macro.
6) If you are having problems, or don't know how to do something. Then search the AC Tool Support Forums.
7) If you still need help. Then post a new topic with complete detailed information, about what you are trying to do. And what is happening in the script/macro. Plz include your script/macro as outlined in the FAQ.

If you do not read the Help file or the readme.txt file. Then you will not learn how to create a script/macro.

If you do not search the forums. Then you will never now about the answer to your question/problem, that more than likely already exists.

If you do not post complete detailed information, with script/macro, as per the AC Tool FAQ. Then you are just wasting everyone's time.
