Tag Aqua Dot-Grey.png Name File name(s) Location (vanilla) Location (AE)
AISA Aqua Dot-Green.png AI Character Setup Array

AISAlevel##_scripts local local
This file type was probably in the process of being replaced by CHAR when Oni shipped, but it is still used for a few cutscene characters.
AKEV Aqua Dot-Yellow.png Akira Environment

AKEV... local local
It's the 3D level model. Many subtypes are used for the actual 3D data -- ABNA, AGDB, AGQG, AGQC, AGQR, AKAA, AKBA, AKBP, AKDA, AKOT (which in turn uses OTIT, OTLF, and QTNA), AKVA, IDXA, PLEA, PNTA, TXCA, and TXMA; these types do not have separate XML documentation because they export as a part of AKEV. Some of these types are also used by M3GM. AKEV exports as a Collada (.dae) file, meant to be edited in a 3D modeler like Blender.
CONS Aqua Dot-Yellow.png Console

CONSconsole... global global
There are only three of these models for the consoles used in all of Oni, as documented in Data console, though the picture (TXMP) displayed on a specific console varies.
DOOR Aqua Dot-Green.png Door

DOOR... global global
There are 48 types of doors, defined globally for use in the levels.
DPge Aqua Dot-Green.png Diary Page

DPgelev_##_pg_## global global
As seen in the Diary tab of the Data Comlink. The actual text is in a linked IGPG (see OPge for more info; also used by HPge, IPge, and WPge). The diary page is used for both diary-style entries and move pages, which are both unlocked when reaching the level number contained in this data. When being used as a move page, the sequence of actions that produce the move can be conveyed with the use of icons (TXMPs provided by KeyI), however this functionality is unused in Oni's existing data.
FILM Aqua Dot-Green.png Film

FILM... local local
A record of a character's movements, created by a developer recording his gameplay, and played back in cutscenes to make an AI perform complex actions. During playback, AIs have no AI. ^_^
HPge Aqua Dot-Green.png Help Page

HPgehelp_pg_01 global global
The Help tab of the Data Comlink labels the in-game UI and reminds the player of the controls (but only the default bindings, regardless of what the player is actually using...). The actual text is in a linked IGPG (also used by DPge, OPge, IPge, and WPge).
IDXA Aqua Dot-Green.png Index Array

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use IDXA (AKEV, ONLV, M3GM), because IDXAs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
IGHH Aqua Dot-Green.png IGUI HUD Help

IGHHhud_help_info global global
The Help tab of the Data Comlink labels the in-game UI using the text found here and the overlay textures it links to. (IGUI is "In-Game User Interface".)
IGPA Aqua Dot-Green.png IGUI Page Array

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use IGPA (DPge, HPge, IPge, OPge, WPge, TxtC), because IGPAs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
IGPG Aqua Dot-Green.png IGUI Page

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use IGPG (DPge, HPge, IPge, OPge, WPge, TxtC), because IGPGs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
IGSA Aqua Dot-Green.png IGUI String Array

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use IGSA (DPge, HPge, IPge, OPge, WPge, TxtC), because IGSAs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
IGSt Aqua Dot-Green.png IGUI String

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use IGSt (DPge, HPge, IPge, OPge, WPge, TxtC), because IGSts do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
Impt Aqua Dot-Green.png Impact

Impt... global global
This file is used to build up a hierarchy of impacts. See BINA/ONIE for more information.
IPge Aqua Dot-Green.png Item Page

IPge... local local
As items are picked up, their Item Pages are displayed on the Items tab of the Data Comlink. The actual text and image is found in a linked IGPG (see OPge for more info; also used by DPge, HPge, and WPge).
M3GM Aqua Dot-Green.png Geometry

M3GM... both both (more are global)
A basic unit of 3D geometry used by anything that can have a physical shape, such as character models (TRBS), consoles (CONS), animated objects (OBAN) and particles (PAR3). The building blocks of the geometry are the types IDXA, PNTA, TXCA and VCRA (these are all exported under M3GM so do not have separate XML documentation), and the texture is provided by TXMP.
Mtrl Aqua Dot-Green.png Material

Mtrl... global global
These files are used to build up a hierarchy of materials. See BINA/ONIE for more information.
OBAN Aqua Dot-Green.png Object Animation

OBAN... both both
Yes, this is used to animate objects, but also characters and cutscene cameras. Uses OBOA (also used by ONLV) to store the physics settings, and the OBOA in turn uses an M3GA, which is an array of M3GMs, to store the actual geometry.
OFGA Aqua Dot-Green.png Object Furniture Geometry Array

Used to import objects with no functions. (Doors, consoles, etc. get imported as object lists. See XML:ONLV for more information.)
ONCC Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Character Class

ONCC... local global
This is where a class of character (Konoko, Striker, etc.) is assigned its weapon skill, behavior ID, vision radius, jumping height, sounds, 3D model (TRBS), animation collection (TRAC), textures (TRMA), and much more. The XML file contains also the character's body part material (CBPM), body part impacts (CBPI), and particles for animations (ONCP and ONIA), so these types are also documented on this page.
ONCV Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Character Variant

ONCV... global global
Used to create a pool of characters from which an AI can be randomly spawned, in order to create a natural variation in appearance. A flag in a CHAR determines which variant the character falls under. It can be also used to upgrade characters on the Hard difficulty level, also determined by a flag in the CHAR.
ONGS Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Game Settings

ONGSgame_settings global global
Here you can modify the game's health bar, hypo spray strength, game difficulty, autoprompts (text messages when picking up a new kind of item), etc.
ONLD Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Game Level Descriptor

ONLDlevel_## global global
Contains a level's number, the number of the next level, and the level's name as it appears on the Load Game screen.
ONLV Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Game Level

ONLV... local local
The top of the hierarchy when it comes to level data. Holds the name of the BSL folder with the scripts for this level, links to the environmental model (AKEV), animated objects (OBOA), skybox (ONSK) and AIs to spawn (well, the ones in AISA; the ones in CHAR need no link from here), and more. These type links as well as the corpse array (CRSA), environmental particles (ENVP), and gunk data (ONOA, which uses IDXA) will be exported together in XML. ONLV also links to six obsolete types which will not be exported: AITR, OBDC, ONFA, ONMA, ONSA and ONTA.
ONSK Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Sky Class

ONSK... local global
It's essentially a box of textures that surrounds the level, so you will need five images for the top, north, east, south and west. The bottom has no image.
ONVL Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Variant List

ONVLvariant_list global global
It's used to randomize characters' appearances in conjunction with ONCV.
ONWC Aqua Dot-Green.png Oni Weapon Class

ONWCw... global global
Describes a weapon's primary and secondary firing mode and more, and links to its particles (PAR3), its 3D model (M3GM) and textures (TXMP).
OPge Aqua Dot-Green.png Objective Page

OPgelevel_## local local
This is the wrapping type for the text that appears in the Objective tab of the Data Comlink. The actual text is found by following the objective page's link to an IGPA (also used by TxtC), which is an array of IGPGs (also used by DPge, HPge, IPge, and WPge) which contain links to arrays of text strings (IGSA, which point to the individual strings, IGSt, which link to the font family, TSFF) and links to TXMPs for illustrations.
PNTA Aqua Dot-Green.png 3D Point Array

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use PNTA (AKEV, M3GM), because PNTAs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
PSpc Aqua Dot-Green.png Part Specification

PSpc... both both
Specifies coordinates in a certain TXMP which contains a collection of UI elements. The coordinates are used to cut out specific elements for use in drawing the windows in the game.
PSpL Aqua Dot-Green.png Part Specification List

PSpLpartspec_list global global
Links to the PSpc used for the plain-color background of a particular UI (the in-game UI uses black and the out-game UI uses transparency).
PSUI Aqua Dot-Green.png Part Specification UI

PSUIpsui_... global global
Specifies the PSpcs used to paint a certain style of UI. There are only two of these files in Oni, and only PSUIpsui_oniUI is actually used.
SNDD Aqua Dot-Green.png Sound Data

SNDD... local global
These are all the sounds and music tracks that Oni can play.
StNA Aqua Dot-Green.png String Array

StNA... global global
StNA files are obsolete. However, on this XML page you'll find collections of flags used by TRAMs.
SUBT Aqua Dot-Green.png Subtitle Array

SUBT... global global
This is just here for informational purposes, because subtitle files are extracted to TXT files, not XML.
TRAC Aqua Dot-Green.png Totoro Animation Collection

TRAC... both global
Used to build a hierarchy of moves (TRAMs) which form a weighted moveset in combination with any parent TRACs a character's TRAC inherits from.
TRAM Aqua Dot-Yellow.png Totoro Animation Sequence

TRAM... both global
The core 3D animation data for character moves. Exports to Collada (.dae) + XML. The XML file contains the animation's Oni-specific flags, links to particles, and so on.
TRAS Aqua Dot-Green.png Totoro Aiming Screen

TRAS... both global
The pose keyframes defined here are interpolated and overlaid on characters when they aim with weapons.
TRBS Aqua Dot-Green.png Totoro Body Set

TRBS... local global
The metadata for the 3D model of a character. Character classes (ONCCs) link to these. The 3D data can be imported/exported as Collada (.dae) files, but using the ONCC for this might be preferable so that you get all related character data in XML on the side. The structure of the body at each individual detail level is found in the linked TRCM, which links to TRGA for the geometry of each body part, to TRTA for the relative location of each body part, and to TRIA for the hierarchical relationship of the body parts.
TRGE Aqua Dot-Green.png Trigger Emitter

TRGEtrigger_emitter_0 global global
This file links to the one 3D model (M3GM) used for all laser triggers. Used by TRIG.
TRIG Aqua Dot-Yellow.png Trigger

TRSC... both global
Essentially just links to the TRAS (aiming screen) of a character.
TSFF Aqua Dot-Green.png Font Family

TSFFTahoma global global
Oni's single font family, Tahoma, which in turn links to font language settings (TSFL) and the font data itself (TSFT, which links to TSGA for the coordinates of each letter in the TSFT data).
TURR Aqua Dot-Green.png Turret

TURR... global global
A class of turret. The actual 3D geometry is in a linked M3GM.
TXCA Aqua Dot-Green.png Texture Coordinate Array

-- both both
This is just a disambiguation page which points to the higher-level types that use TXCA (AKEV, M3GM), because TXCAs do not get exported as standalone files by OniSplit.
TXMB Aqua Dot-Green.png Texture Map Big

TXMB... both both
A series of TXMPs to join in order to display a splashscreen, like the Main Menu background and the level intro/win/loss screens.
TXMP Aqua Dot-Green.png Texture Map

TXMP... both global except for textures used by specific levels
This type covers all images in Oni (except the ones larger than 256x256, which are built with TXMB). When a texture is animated, it will have a link to TXAN, which simply contains metadata about the animation; the actual image data is still in the TXMP.
TxtC Aqua Dot-Green.png Text Console

TxtClevel_... local local
The source of the text for a given console. The actual text is found by following the link to an IGPA (also used by OPge), which is an array of IGPG (also used by DPge, HPge, IPge, and WPge) that contains the actual text.
WMCL Aqua Dot-Green.png Window Manager Cursor List

WMCLcursor_list global global
Simply links to the PSpc which links to the image used for the mouse pointer that appears in Oni.
WMDD Aqua Dot-Green.png Window Manager Dialog Data

WMDD... global global
Describes the layout of UI screens like the Main Menu. Uses WMM_ for pop-up menus, and links to the desired font family (TSFF, also used by IGPG). Because Oni's UI is partially hardcoded, adding new buttons would require engine modding.
WMM_ Aqua Dot-Green.png Window Manager Menu

WMM... global global
Dropdown menus used in WMDDs. Most of the WMM_s and the sole WMMB in Oni (a menu bar that uses WMM_ for its menus) are development relics.
WPge Aqua Dot-Green.png Weapon Page

WPgew... global global
This is the source for the text and images that appear in the Weapons tab of the Data Comlink. The actual text and image is found in a linked IGPG (see OPge for more info; also used by DPge, HPge, and WPge).
