Talk:SCM Instruction

Article name

The name "opcode" does not seem fitting for a page that describes the actual SCM instruction format. While the introduction suggests that the page is about the opcode alone ("Each script instruction is represented by a number called opcode"), the rest simply describes the format of instructions along with their arguments. As such, I propose that either the page's title is changed to something like "Instruction" or "Script Instruction", or that another page be created for the non-opcode information (which seems silly, given how little there is to say about the opcode itself).

Agreed that this article covers more than opcodes. Not sure what name would fit there. It should be a clear distiction between instructions in 3D and HD eras. Maybe SCM Instruction. Seemann (talk) 05:35, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
SCM Instruction sounds like a good name. Should we rename the page then? I don't actually know how to do that.Squ1dd13 (talk) 11:05, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
Cheers. I've changed the introduction so that it fits with the new title, so you might just wanna check if it's ok. – Squ1dd13 (talk) 17:10, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
We should somehow connect this page with SCM language (which is one of the languages that compile into SCM). Seemann (talk) 17:22, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
I think that if SCM language doesn't already link to this page somewhere, it should, but otherwise I think we should make sure it's obvious that there is a difference between the compiled SCM files and the languages that compile into them. My issue with SCM language is that it covers both the R* syntax and some details about compiled files, which I think ought to be kept separate. Whatever happens, I think this page should be independent (i.e. not part of a larger page). – Squ1dd13 (talk) 17:56, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
