Oni Team Arena (or OTA)

Oni Team Arena is a series of scripts oriented on multiplayer gameplay. You don't get to fight human opponents, but Oni's AI are treated as respawning bots.

The interface is much inspired by that of existing FPS-shooters and other games supporting multiplayer.

Smart bot behavior, challenge and entertainment are the main objectives. OTA is also a playground allowing us to test complex combat situations before they get implemented in projects like Oni 2.

We try to implement as many popular multiplayer features as possible: random spawn positions, random weapons and powerups, frag-related messages, sounds and visuals, bot model selection etc. In the case of advanced features like teleporters and jump platforms, we're limited by the original AI. Otherwise, anything goes.


"We" is geyser for the core scripting, Your_Mom for cross-level porting on PC, and (since recently) EdT for porting 1.1 onto Mac OS9. Script10k provided the initial idea.


What exactly is Oni Team Arena?

What we do is a large number of comparatively small arena-like setups in appropriate spots throughout Oni. There are two teams of bots, you get to lead one, and a boss character gets to lead the other.

The number of players can vary, but we try to make it large, starting at 16 (which is the number of network/online players supported by Serious Engine 2).

Teams don't just fight with each other, they score points and the first team to reach a set amount of points wins. There can be neutral characters who attack either team or just annoy everybody.

Game modes

  • Team Deathmatch : teams score a frag every time a player of the opposite team dies. - IMPLEMENTED, currently in final stage of development
  • Tag a.k.a. Oni : the player is "it" (a.k.a. the Oni), alone against the AI. When an AI dies, it becomes the Oni : it respawns, and the player gets to control this new character. The old Oni becomes an enemy AI. - IMPLEMENTED, being added to release versions
  • Capture The Flag : teams score points by stealing the enemy flag and bringing it home. - IN PROJECT
  • Oni Rugby : teams score points by carrying an object (the ball) and marking a point with it in the enemy camp. - IN PROJECT
  • Bonuses : Stuff like a fun shooting range with a score, not really an arena, but something we might want to throw in a pack.
  • More bonuses : Advanced scripting choreography and camera management (fighting/dancing/moviemaking)...
  • Other stuff, not clearly defined yet

Both time limit and frag limit are supported in the most recent DM packs.

Fighting modes

  • total melee : no weapons
  • balanced gameplay : limited number of randomly chosen weapons.
  • single-weapon gameplay : limited number of weapons of one given type.

Weapons can be given at respawn-time or they can be spawned on the ground.

How can I help?

Beta-testing of any available OTA release listed above is welcome. We have a stability issue (read : we get "Blam! Oni crashed") on some levels with the most recent and full-featured versions of OTA (1.1)

Please check back on this page now and then, download and test everything that doesn't have a YES/NO "Stable" label. Any level labeled as "unstable" will get a dedicated crash report and discussion page.

Also, if you're interested in helping to cross-level port or debug, please contact us (contact links are at the top of the page).
