To learn how to declare and use functions, read the BSL manual's Functions section. This page documents Oni's built-in (or "native") scripting functions. The other half of the available scripting commands are in BSL:Variables.

About chr_index

"chr_index" is a means of identifying a character in a level, required by some functions like chr_focus. Each character including the player-character has a chr_index associated with him/her. Typically the chr_index is determined by the spawn order of the characters. Characters can be spawned either by scripting or by the engine itself (if the character doesn't have the "NotInitiallyPresent" flag in the BINACJBOCharacter file).

For example, if this was run after loading the level with no one spawned except Konoko…

ai2_spawn Muro
ai2_spawn Mukade
ai2_spawn Bomber

…then Muro will receive chr_index 1, Mukade will have index 2 and the Bomber index 3. Konoko always has a chr_index of 0 because she's the first character to be spawned. As the game runs, however, things become more complicated. Once a character is deleted, either by being killed (after which the engine deletes them automatically) or by calling chr_delete directly, any characters spawned subsequently will fill in the holes left by the deleted characters.

For example, if this is done…

ai2_spawn Muro
ai2_spawn Mukade
chr_delete Mukade
ai2_spawn Bomber

…Mukade will have index 2, but once he's deleted, his index will be freed up. When Bomber is spawned, he will receive index 2 in order to fill the hole left behind. If you are desperate to reset chr_index assignments for the sake of your scripting, you may want to use ai2_reset, which resets all characters to the level's initial state.

Legend

Parameter
  • parameter_name:type
You have to supply this parameter.
  • [parameter]
This parameter is optional. You can use it or not.
  • [parameter1:type1 | parameter2:type2]
You can supply a parameter of the first type or second type.
  • (null)
There are no parameters; you call the function by name alone.
Description

The function name, parameters and description come directly from Oni (the command "dump_docs"). The description given after a dash is sometimes too short or cryptic to be of much use. Sometimes it's even a placeholder value like "bla bla bla" (thanks Bungie West). In those cases a modder may have added a note in italics under the function to explain what it really does.

Native functions

ai2

Commands which can have an effect on all AIs (see below to use these same commands on one AI):

  • ai2_allpassive passive:int {0 | 1} - stops all AIs from thinking for themselves - ai2_allpassive 1
  • ai2_kill - kills one or more AIs

If you don't specify any parameters to it, ai2_kill kills all AIs.

  • ai2_spawnall (null) - spawns all AI, even those not initially present - ai2_spawnall
  • ai2_takecontrol on_off:int {0 | 1} - makes the AI movement system take control of the player - ai2_takecontrol 1

Tells all AIs about the character named in the third parameter (optional; default is the player-character). AIs will ignore the alarm if they are passive, are not set in their CHAR to respond to this alarm group, are an ally of the named character, or (when target is to be the player) they have had ai2_makeignoreplayer used on them or the variable ai2_ignore_player is true. The notified AIs will run to the target character's current location as of the time the alarm was tripped.

[ai_name:string | script_id:int] = 0 don't work

  • chr_full_health [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - sets a characters health to full by script id - chr_full_health 0
  • chr_givepowerup [ai_name:string | script_id:int] powerup:string [amount:int] - gives a character a powerup -chr_givepowerup 0 ammo 1

powerup strings: ammo, cell, hypo, shield (in percent), invis (invisibility in frames, -1 = forever), lsi (amount is ignored)

  • chr_giveweapon [ai_name:string | script_id:int] weapon_name:string - gives a character a new weapon - chr_giveweapon 0 w1_tap

weapon strings: w1_tap, w2_sap, w3_phr, w4_psm, w5_sbg, w6_vdg, w7_scc, w8_mbo, w9_scr, w10_sni, w11_ba1, w12_ba2

  • chr_has_empty_weapon [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - returns if this character is holding a weapon that is empty - chr_has_empty_weapon(char_0)

This function only returns if the player is out of ammo for the weapon and the weapon is also empty.

  • chr_has_lsi [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - records that the character has the lsi - chr_has_lsi(0)
  • chr_health chr_index:int [hit_points:int] - sets character's health - chr_health 0 300
  • chr_holdkey [ai_name:string | script_id:int] key_name:string num_frames:int - forces a character to hold a key down for some frames
  • chr_inv_reset [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - clears a characters inventory - chr_inv_reset ambush_tanker_1a
  • chr_invincible [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [on_off:int{0 | 1}] - makes a character invincible - chr_invincible char_0 1
  • chr_is_player [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - returns if this character is the player - chr_is_player(character)
  • chr_location chr_index:int [loc_x:float loc_y:float loc_z:float] - Sets the location of any character -chr_location 0 100 100 100

The first parameter is [ai_name:string | chr_index:int] on Macs, that is, you can supply the name of the AI or its index number.

  • chr_location_settocamera chr_index:int - Sets the location of any character to the camera location -chr_location_settocamera 1
  • chr_lock_active [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - locks the character active - chr_lock_active IntroMuro
  • chr_main_class [class_name:string | class_index:int] - sets the main characters class - chr_main_class striker_easy_1

If you provide an index number ("IN") higher than the available number of characters ("NC"), the engine will keep iterating through the available characters, wrapping around when it hits the end, until it has traversed IN characters. For instance if NC = 85 and you input chr_main_class(180), the engine will change your class to the index 10 (180-85-85).

The practical effect seems to be different than chr_set_class (besides the parameters). For example with chr_main_class(ninja_hard_1) your ninja will be righthanded while with chr_set_class(0,ninja_hard_1) your ninja will be lefthanded. Another difference is that chr_main_class seem to disable the Daodan effect when using chr_super on the character itself.

  • chr_neutral [ai_name:string | script_id:int] passive:int{0 | 1} - stops an AI from thinking for itself - chr_neutral ParkStriker 1
  • chr_nocollision [ai_name:string | script_id:int] on_off:int{0 | 1} - disables collision for a character - chr_nocollision 0 1
  • chr_pain [ai_name:string | script_id:int] pain_type:string - forces a character to play a pain sound pain type strings: light, medium, heavy, death
  • chr_peace [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - turns off fight mode - chr_peace 0

Normally used in cutscenes so the player leaves the fighting pose.

  • chr_playback [ai_name:string | script_id:int] film_name:string [mode:string{"fromhere" | "interp"}] [num_frames:int] - plays back a film

See comments on this function where it occurs under the film section.

  • chr_playback_block [ai_name:string | script_id:int] film_name:string [mode:string{"fromhere" | "interp"}] [num_frames:int] - plays back a film and blocks until complete
  • chr_playback_debug film_name:string - dumps stats for a playback film
  • chr_poison [ai_name:string | script_id:int] damage:int interval:int [initial_interval:int] - slowly poisons a character - chr_poison (konoko, 10, 60, 90);

This is intended to be called in a continuous stream for a character standing in a trigger volume which represents an area that does ambient damage, such as a fire. No damage is done for the first "initial_interval" frames that the function is called, or, when "initial_interval" is not supplied, for the first "interval" frames; and then additional damage is only done once every "interval" frames as the function continues to be called every frame by the TV. Thus, calling this function a single time directly from a script will have zero effect.

  • chr_set_class chr_index:int [class_name:string | class_index:int] - sets the character class of a specific character, class must exist otherwise the game crashes - chr_set_class 0 striker_easy_1
  • chr_set_health [ai_name:string | script_id:int] hit_points:int - sets a characters health by script id - chr_set_health dum_hit_flash 50
  • chr_shadow [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [on_off:int{0 | 1}] - turns of the shadow for this character - chr_shadow ZomShin 1
  • chr_showextent [anim_name:string] - shows the attack extent of an animation - chr_showextent KONOKOjump_bk_kick

chr_showextent_globals must be on for this to work.

  • chr_showextent_globals - shows the global parts of an attack animation's extent - chr_showextent 1
  • chr_super [ai_name:string | script_id:int] super_amount:float - set's a character's super value

This sets a character's "external super" value, meaning their Daodan glow, but will not grant them any special powers such as Daodan overpower. It is used to give Konoko her Daodan glow in the Mountain Compound opening cutscene (she isn't granted overhealth until the cutscene ends). The super_amount value determines the brightness of the Daodan particles: consider the effective range to be 1-10. The Compound cutscene gives Konoko a glow of 1, and the cheat code "chenille" gives her a glow of 10.

  • chr_talk [ai_name:string | script_id:int] sound_name:string pre_pause:int post_pause:int [priority:string | ] - causes a character to play a line of dialogue - chr_talk victim_mansci_1 c02_62_11sci 0 0

  • chr_unstoppable [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [on_off:int{0 | 1}] - makes a character unstoppable - chr_unstoppable IntroMuro 1
  • chr_vocalize [ai_name:string | script_id:int] type:string - makes a character utter a vocalization (vocalize type strings: taunt, alert, startle, checkbody, pursue, cower, superpunch, superkick, super3, super4). Character must be present in AISA file in order to work. Otherwise it will vocalize only the player.
  • chr_wait_animation [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [anim_name:string] - waits for a character to play a specific animation - chr_wait_animation 0 KONSPRrun_lt KONSPRrun_rt
  • chr_wait_animstate [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [anim_name:string] - waits for a character to reach a specific animation state - chr_wait_animstate 0 run_slide
  • chr_wait_animtype [ai_name:string | script_id:int] [anim_name:string] - waits for a character to play a specific animation type - chr_wait_animtype 0 jump
  • chr_wait_health [ai_name:string | script_id:int] health_amount:int32 - waits until a character's health falls below a value - chr_wait_health Muro 200

  • who - prints AIs that are nearby

cinematic

This picture shows the layout of the "flags" used by cinematic_start/stop's start:int and end parameters.
  • cinematic_start bitmap_name:string draw_width:int draw_height:int start:int end:int velocity:float mirror:bool - start the display of a cinematic insert - cinematic_start (MUROtalking, 180, 180, 15, 1, 15, false)
  • cinematic_stop bitmap_name:string end:int velocity:float - stop the display of a cinematic insert - cinematic_stop (KONtalkangryfront, 16, 20)

see picture on right for locations that insert can be placed; if you give a flag value of 0, the picture is displayed in the top-left corner of the screen
the yellow area's flags are off-screen; these are used for the start position of the fly-in so the picture slides on-screen instead of popping up on-screen

camera

  • cm_anim cam_spec:string{"move" | "look" | "both"} anim_name:string - initiates a camera animation - cm_anim both OutroCam03
  • cm_anim_block cam_spec:string{"move" | "look" | "both"} anim_name:string - initiates a camera animation - cm_anim_block both OutroCam04
  • cm_barabus [ai_name:string | script_id:int] away:float up:float time:int - special camera for barabus
  • cm_detach (null) - detaches the camera - cm_detach
  • cm_interpolate cam_name:string num_frames:int - initiates a camera interpolation - cm_interpolate GrifCam01 180
  • cm_interpolate_block anim_name:string num_frames:int - initiates a camera interpolation - cm_interpolate_block OutroCam05 180

  • cm_orbit_block speed:float [stopangle:float] - puts the camera in orbit mode - cm_orbit_block 2 180
  • cm_reset [maxspeed:float] [maxFocalAccel:float] - resets the camera - cm_reset
  • cm_wait (null) - makes the camera wait until it is no longer busy - cm_wait

developer console

  • co_show_all - shows all registered variables and commands - co_show_all
  • console_print - dumps all arguments
  • co_toggle_text - cycles console text color
  • dump_docs - shows all registered variables and functions

These will be dumped into the file script_commands.txt, next to Oni.

  • text_console name:string - turns on the text console display

console

  • console_activate console_id:int - activates a console - console_activate 14
  • console_deactivate console_id:int - deactivates a console - console_deactivate 5
  • console_reset console_id:int - resets a console to initial state - console_reset 7 text_console name:string - Turns on the text console display - text_console level_6d

corpse

  • corpse_reset (null) - resets corpses to their initial state - corpse_reset
  • make_corpse corpse_name:string - makes a corpse
  • trigvolume_corpse trig_id:int - kills all the corpses inside a trigger volume - trigvolume_corpse 32

cutscene

  • begin_cutscene flag:string{"weapon" | "jello" | "ai" | "invis" | "nosync" | "keepparticles" | "animation" | "nojump"} - begins a cutscene - begin_cutscene

begin_cutscene will take as many arguments as you care to pass it, although BWest only ever passed it "jello", "weapon", or no argument at all. Each argument is a thing that you want to retain for the cutscene, otherwise it will be turned off:
"weapon": The player's weapon will not be holstered as the cutscene starts.
"jello": Do not turn off jello-cam.
"ai": Do not turn off the AI (normally begin_cutscene internally performs ai2_allpassive 1).
"invis": Do not remove the player's phase cloak.
"nosync": Do not engage cutscene syncing (see cutscene_sync).
"keepparticles": Don't delete dangerous particles that are currently active.
"animation": Don't force the character to stand still.
"nojump": Don't zero the character's lateral velocity if they are mid-jump.

  • cutscene_sync state:string{"mark" | "on" | "off"} - marks a point in a cutscene - cutscene_sync on

Cutscene syncing prevents audio from getting out of time with the visuals when the game is dropping frames during a cutscene, keeping the game world in time with the system clock instead of letting the game slow down. At one time, BWest was calling cutscene_sync on at the start of a cutscene to enable syncing. They would then mark a point at which audio must be synced with the visuals using cutscene_sync or cutscene_sync mark. However "mark" no longer does anything, as a mark is made whenever this function is called. More importantly, calling begin_cutscene automatically engages cutscene sync unless you specifically request it not to, making this function generally obsolete.

  • end_cutscene (null) - ends a cutscene - end_cutscene
  • fade_in ticks:int - fades the screen in - fade_in 120
  • fade_out [r:float | r:int] [g:float | g:int] [b:float | b:int] ticks:int - fades the screen out - fade_out 0 0 0 120
  • input on_off:int{0 | 1} - turns input on or off - input 0
  • letterbox start_stop:int{0 | 1} - starts or stops letterboxing - letterbox 0

film

  • chr_playback [ai_name:string | script_id:int] film_name:string [mode:string{"fromhere" | "interp"}] [num_frames:int] - plays back a film

Film playback has three modes: normal (default), fromhere and interp. When you ask for a film to play without specifying a mode, e.g. playback 0 IntroKonokoAim it warps the character to an XYZ starting location contained in the FILM. If you instead write playback 0 IntroKonokoAim fromhere, it ignores the starting location and plays the film from the character's current location. You can interpolate from the character's current position to the film's starting position with playback 0 IntroKonokoAim interp 20 to avoid a small jump in location (however this will be rejected if the distance is greater than 80 world units). After "interp" comes the number of frames to which this interpolation should be applied as the film starts playing.

  • chr_playback_block [ai_name:string | script_id:int] film_name:string [mode:string{"fromhere" | "interp"}] [num_frames:int] - plays back a film and blocks until complete
  • chr_playback_debug film_name:string - dumps stats for a playback film

  • playback_block [ai_name:string | script_id:int] film_name:string [mode:string{"fromhere" | "interp"}] [num_frames:int] - plays back a film and blocks until complete - playback_block Start_Friend_1 roll fromhere // playback_block hangar1f_enemy_2 bomber_jump interp 30
  • playback_debug film_name:string - dumps stats for a playback film

The above three functions are simply aliases for chr_playback*.

  • sc_focus chr_index:int - sets which character we're authoring for a film

  • chr_has_lsi [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - records that the character has the lsi - chr_has_lsi(0)
  • chr_is_player [ai_name:string | script_id:int] - returns if this character is the player - chr_is_player(character)
  • crash when:string{"now"} - crashes the game (used for testing error handling)
  • did_kill_griffen (null) - returns if we did kill griffen - did_kill_griffen()
  • difficulty (null) - returns the difficulty level

See Difficulty modes for all the factors changed with the difficulty level.

  • print_state state:int - prints an anim state
  • print_type type:int - prints an anim type
  • restore_game (null) - restores the game - restore_game

Tells the game to load from disk the player state data saved in persist.dat – Konoko's position, health and inventory – for the current save point. The save point can be set in two ways: the player selecting an option from the Load Game screen, and the save_game function being called.

  • save_game save_point:int [type:string{"autosave"}] - saves the game - save_game 1 autosave

Saves the player state to persist.dat. save_point is restricted to the range 0-10, but only values 1-10 are expected to be passed in. If you pass in "0", the error "invalid save point" will print on the console line but Oni will actually create "Save Point 0" under that level (or "Save Point -1" in the case of Chapter 1!). Loading this save point will be equivalent to clicking on the level title.
The only effect of passing "autosave" as the third parameter is playing the game-saved sound effect and displaying the message "Game saved." The game will be saved with or without it. No other value for this parameter has special meaning.

  • dprint astring:string - debugging print

dprint prints to the console output. Note that calling dprint and dmsg more than once within a single function produces unexpected results; two calls result in one of the dprint/dmsg calls becoming the return value for the function (even if it it's type "void") or sometimes creating a return value of 0, and more than two calls might be ignored.

"Dialogue" is routinely misspelled as "dialog" in the following command names and descriptions.

  • sound_dialog_play name:string - function to start character dialog playing - sound_dialog_play c00_01_18shinatama
  • sound_dialog_play_block name:string - function to start character dialog playing after the current dialog finishes - sound_dialog_play_block c00_01_67shinatama

Making two successive calls to sound_dialog_play will cause the second line of dialogue to fail to play, and you will only hear the first line. In the level scripts, BWest prevents this by either (1) using sleep() between them, (2) calling another function that blocks further script execution for a while such as chr_animate_block or cm_anim_block, or (3) using sound_dialog_play_block. This function is commonly called with either no argument or the argument "pause", which has no meaning to the function; "pause" was either a mnemonic for the developers indicating the purpose of the function call or else the function was changed during development. The only argument that has meaning to sound_dialog_play_block is the name of a sound. However, even when no valid sound name is received to be played by the function, it still has the effect of blocking on the currently playing dialogue. Thus you will commonly see "sound_dialog_play_block" or "sound_dialog_play_block pause" calls between occurrences of sound_dialog_play. More rarely, you will see calls of the format "sound_dialog_play_block actual_sound_name" for the next line of dialogue, which is more efficient than making an empty call to sound_dialog_play_block between sound_dialog_play calls for dialogue. Why didn't BWest always do it that way? Again it may be due to a change in the functionality of sound_dialog_play_block during development. But occasionally it may be desirable to separate the playing of a dialogue line from the command to block on it, for instance if you want to perform some actions immediately after starting a line playing, then block until the line finishes, then perform additional actions before playing further dialogue.
