Variable names in console

In the past users reported problems with scripts, in which maps were not found. If you have numbers in the first part of your map name, read this, it might help you out.

The console engine tokenizes every pieces of script code that enters and parses and analyses it, before generating the needed code to be executed.

The words that can be used as a variable name, are tested to match the following regular expression:
^[$][a-zA-Z_]+[a-zA-Z0-9_]?+$

This probably won't help most of the users at that point (it will developers), but it solves the above cited problem, since it states that in the first "piece" of variable name there can't be numbers:

So by changing for example something like
      $d2o3d_map
to
      $dtwoothreed_map
the thing might work properly.
