Official Name?

Not too sure about this, so I'm not gonna stick it on the main page,
but data suggests that the official language name is something to the affect of "Bungie FrameWork Script Lang[uage]".
Citing this:
"F:\BungieDevelopment\BungieSource\BungieFrameWork\BFW_Source\BFW_ScriptLang\BFW_ScriptLang.c"
and this:
"F:\BungieDevelopment\BungieSource\BungieFrameWork\BFW_Source\BFW_ScriptLang\BFW_ScriptLang_Database.c"
and a few others.

When you look at the "few others", the impression is that everything about Oni is part of the BFW.
(Motoko, Akira, Totoro, FileManager, LocalInput... everything)
And while it could be that Oni's scripts are written in something generic
(e.g. there might be Marathon/Myth/Halo scripts using similar syntax)
I'd rather not use the "official" name ^^. For one thing, renaming namespaces is a pain ^^

Hm, now that I think of it, you've got a point. Obviously, OSL should be BSL.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that some of the assumptiuon comes from the script files' extension. Also I'm not nearly suggesting renaming everything here, just merely giving it a mention if it is the official name. Tosh 06:25, 17 February 2007 (CET)

I got tired of having to click twice to get to the main scripts page...the "scripts link" should point to the main page, right? Change it back if ye like...Gumby


Can we use either BSL or OSL? (I prefer BSL, because of the *.bsl files.)

It's BSL. I haven't renamed all the pages yet.
