      I’d like to understand the compatibility for Background processing of this code in 3d script:

      QW=REQUEST ("Name_of_material",mod_mat_03,temp_name_1) 
      QW=REQUEST{2} ("Material_info", temp_name_1, "gs_mat_texture", file_name_1, w_1, h_1) 

      In “GDL-Related Changes in ArchiCAD 19” http://download.graphisoft.com/ftp/techsupport/downloads/GDL/GDL%20changes%20in%20ArchiCAD%2019%20v1.1.pdf
      at the chapter III point 5 is written:
      5. Uses variable name request

      I can’t find the same point in the online gdl help:
      http://gdl.graphisoft.com/gdl-docs/basic-technical-standards/background-conversion/

      In the “check background update compatibility” in AC19 it doesn’t report any errors in the use of the REQUEST “Name_of_material” name in 3d script. Is this check completely reliable?

      Can I use it or I don’t?

      You can use “Name_of_material” request in 3d, but you shouldn’t use it in paramscript.

      The complete list of parameter script-restricted requests can be found here, in case you were wondering about the rest of them.
      The GDL compatibility guide is available for download on this site as well, check here.
