From Zandronum Wiki
This article documents a Zandronum-specific special lump which may not be supported by ZDoom and its other child ports.

ANCRINFO is a special lump that allows the definition of custom announcers.


The ANCRINFO lump takes the following format:

    name = "Announcer Name"
    event = "myannouncer/event"
    somethinghappens = "myannouncer/anothersound"

Essentially, it is a map of arbitrary keys to SNDINFO keys. There is only one reserved key, name, which sets the name of the announcer. All other keys will be announcer sounds. Multiple announcers can be declared in a single ANCRINFO lump.

Zandronum keys

Zandronum uses the following announcer keys. Mods can also use their own announcer keys and play them with AnnouncerSound. It is not required for any custom announcer to define any of these keys.
