Description Alexander Mayfield 2013-08-11 03:55:23 UTC
UDMF is a map format supported by ZDoom and Zandronum.  It is a plain-text map format which does away with several of the binary lumps that the Doom and Hexen map formats have.

UDMF maps consist of three lumps: the header, TEXTMAP and ENDMAP.  The header and ENDMAP are markers, while TEXTMAP contains the map data.  ZDoom currently supports several other lumps:

- ZNODES: ZDoom GL/GL2 nodes.  Normal nodes aren't recognized here.
- REJECT: Reject tables, same as Doom and Hexen.
- BEHAVIOR: Compiled ACS, same as Hexen.
- DIALOGUE: Strife conversation data.

Yes, that means that the nodes are optional, and that if nodes are omitted the port is expected to build their own nodes for the map.
