Wac Files in Comanche 4

I remember seeing a sample of a wac file for comanche 4. and can't seem to find it. Does any one know of any or a list of the wac commands for Comanche 4

Thanks

Most of them would be the same as the wac commands used in the Delta Force series
using mostly (ssn)/(Group) area trigger and waypoint statements. The AI may or may not have full access from the wac but you could get a good idea by making a few events in the MEd and printing them to a text file for examination.

wac file - nestable IF/THEN/ELSE/ENDIF boolean logic
;
;WAC post directory w:\vp\program\wac - commands listed in GAME.WAC
;WAC debug screen under shift-F12, numlock arrows to select and scroll
;
;GLOBAL WAC is GAME.WAC (executed first)
;
;MISSION WAC is misname.WAC (executed second)
;
;Left to Right order of operations
;
;---WAC LANGUAGE COMMANDS
;nestable flow control
; IF THEN ELSE ENDIF
;boolean logic
; AND OR XOR
;function modifier
; NOT
;comments
; ; /
;
;Syntax - parens optional, line returns and tabbing optional
;
; if trigger1(params) and trigger2(params) then
; event1(params)
; event2(params)
; endif
;
;Example
;
; I want to open doors in group 12 the first time I enter area 1501

; if location(1501) and never() then
; opendoors(12)

;V# V0 to v511 game variables, cleared at start of mission
