How to Play



Spoiler: For character modders

Below I've attached example lua scripts (with ample amounts of commenting) to demonstration and explain how characters can be scripted to interact with the Battle system. These scripts can be freely modified and re-used.

Custom Battle Actions

Melee Collision Priority

Additional variables:
CharShieldMax[skin] -- Sets the maximum of shields a character can have in reserve.

For more ambitious lua endeavors, please refer to the functions contained in BattleMod's Lua/Library folder.


Spoiler: For mappers

The following is an explanation of how to add Control Points to your maps:
Code:
Control Points are Thing 3640 in the map editor. The attributes of the control point can be modified as follows:

Angle: Sets the radius of the control point.
	A value of 0 will default to 384 fracunits.
	Minimum radius is 95 fracunits, maximum is 720 fracunits.
Settings: Sets the height and orientation of the control point. Starting height is 192 fracunits.
	Extra flag: Increases the height by an additional 192 fracunits.
	Flip flag: Flips the control point upside down (zone will be oriented toward the ceiling)
	Special flag: Automatically adjusts the height to match that of the sector's floor/ceiling. (overrides Extra/Ambush flags)
	Ambush flag: Decreases the height by 96 fracunits.
Parameters: Sets the control point meter, i.e. the amount of time needed to capture the point.
	0 will default to a moderate capture rate.
	1 = least time necessary, 15 = most time necessary.



There are several console commands that can be used to test out various CP functionality:

cp_create - Creates a control point at the console player's current location.
	Required arguments:
	radius (0 to 359) sets the radius of the control point. 0 uses default radius.
	height (-1 to 4) sets the height of the control point. -1 adjusts to sector floor/ceiling, 0 uses default height.
	meter (0 to 15) sets the meter of the control point. 0 uses default meter amount.
	flip (0 or 1) sets the vertical orientation of the control point. 0 is normal, 1 is reverse gravity.
cp_next - Activates the next CP in the current rotation.
cp_shuffle - Re-shuffles the order in which all CPs activate on the map.
cp_radius - Sets all CPs to the specified radius. 0 uses the amount defined by spawn placement.
cp_height - Sets all CPs to the specified height. 0 uses the amount defined by spawn placement.
cp_meter - Sets all CPs to the specified meter amount. 0 uses the amount defined by spawn placement.
The following TypeOfLevels are available:
  • Battle
  • EggRoboTag
  • BattleCTF
  • CP


Spoiler: Special Thanks

Maybe a 10% movement speed reduction while holding the flag is worth testing, too. Currently it feels extremely easy to juke 2-3 people chasing me with abilities, especially on large maps like silver cascade.

Tails
	Swapped the key commands for spawning and firing a sentry
	Spawning a sentry can be executed with the "fire sentry" command if no sentry is currently out


I have also updated the opening post to reflect all of the recent changes since release.

It's at this point that I'm officially declaring a "version freeze" on the mod. This turned out to be a much more ambitious endeavor than I had originally anticipated, and there comes a point when it's time to move onto the next big thing. I will still try to work out any important bug fixes as needed, but for now this should be considered the last big update from me, at least for a little while. Thanks for all of your support, and I hope to see more battle netgames on the horizon!

This is the most broken update you've released yet. On several occasions people will just die randomly. Like if I twinspin someone, *I DIE* and i have rings, a shield, or even invincibilty. The user of the armageddon shield will just DIE when using it, even if they have rings or any other protection. Yes, this happened with Sonic and Amy. No, Mighty is not loaded, and why the heck does that matter. You may have been avoiding me, hoping you'll never have to touch this again. But these bugs have happened on several occasions, not the most replicatable due to you just dying for no reason. But it happens *A LOT*. This happened to me and others several times.

Version 5.2

Today's update features changes on behalf of SMS Alfredo, namely the battle priority system recognizing stomp jumps when above enemy players, and improvements to the CP gamemode HUD.

Battle
Added melee conditions for stomp damage on jump attacks.
Added matchfeed text for non-spinning jump attacks
Added default matchfeed text for any non-projectile attacks that haven't already had specified hit messages -- no more "tagging hand" nonsense

CP
HUD: Added skin icons next to each percentage meter, improving readability and making it clearer which player is in the lead.

Nerf Fang's gun speed underwater, it's basically impossible to dodge, therefore impossible to approach him underwater. Maybe slightly nerf the speed in the air as well, it should still be very fast, just maybe a tiny debuff to the speed. Double the cooldown on the gun so it's not as spammable. It's very often spammed, if you'd play the game with others you would know. Buff Knuckles' rock blast, it doesn't last for long enough, so using it strategically on a wall to form a rockslide doesn't even work. That and it barely ever hits anything now. That and Knuckles is really bad at chasing others, and thok is very fast. Also this isn't your problem whatsoever but since it's related to battle i'll put it here: Everyone in this server agrees Yoshi is good, but he feels very weak. I agree and don't really want to play him due to him having such a hard disadvantage.

---------- Post added at 01:26 AM ---------- Previous post was at 01:10 AM ----------

PLEASE make Fang not able to shoot immediately after he's hurt / in his invincibility frames, ffs even Yoshi cant shoot immediately after he's hurt / in his invincibility frames.

Version 5.4

Today's update is balance-focused. It's a bit larger than expected and features a few major overall changes:
  • Tweaks to which objects can be reticle-targeted
  • All projectiles will travel slower while underwater (lifetimes will be doubled where appropriate to keep the projectile's range the same)
  • Fang's popgun acts a bit more like a "melee" attack, uncurling and knocking back players before being able to deal damage
  • Balance tweaks to Fang's and Tag Egg Robo's bombs
  • Metal Sonic can now burst into dash mode while storing energy
  • Various minor tweaks to Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, and Metal Sonic's abilities
  • CTF grace period balance tweaks
  • All battle gametypes that did not have timelimits will now have a 10 minute timelimit by default

The two things I want to talk about are Metal's Dash Burst and Fang's popgun.

Metal Sonic now has the option of performing a dash while charging his energy blast. The goal of this change is to make Metal Sonic's dash mode a little more accessible in areas where wide open playing fields are not readily available. This will hopefully make his effectiveness a little more consistent and improve his depth of play.



Fang's changes are a little more experimental; prior to this update, Fang's popgun always dealt damage to enemy players, as is typical with most projectiles. One issue that has been brought up is that many players found it frustrating to play against Fang, as it often feels like taking damage is necessary in order to engage with him. At the same time, it was also found that the character had weak defenses, particularly against players who were already invulnerable due to taking damage, which means that Fang is often forced to retreat after engagements or risk becoming a punching bag.

The new changes are an attempt to resolve both issues. Popgun corks can now be aimed at invulnerable players and always deal knockback regardless of the player's invulnerability state. If the player is vulnerable, the popgun cork will only deal damage if the colliding player has no core defense priority (e.g. not spinning, hammering, etc.; sweetspot priority is ignored) -- otherwise, the popgun will knock the target player upward and uncurl them. The targeted player will be able to maneuver during this period, but they will also be susceptible to the next popgun cork.



The hope of this change is that Fang's popgun will feel more like it follows the rules of engagement that are usually applied to "melee" conflicts, giving opposing players more opportunities to avoid taking damage while also giving the Fang player a stronger means of defending oneself against retaliation.

I'll reiterate that this is a very experimental balance tweak, so I'm interested in hearing feedback from anyone who has a chance to play with or against the changes. Does this feel better, worse? Any adjustments that could be made to improve on the concept? Let me know your thoughts below.

File has been reuploaded to match current prefix conventions. Anyone who has already downloaded only needs to rename their file with the "ZBa_" prefix.

To match current conventions I'd also like to request that this thread be moved into the "Mods" category.

To be honest I think this mod is better than ringslinger. It is also what SRB2's multiplayer versus mode should've been at first too.

Default Some bugs and Sync

Just a few bits of feedback to give for V6!

Not sure if this is intentional but the stacked Pity Shield will not deploy if your shield fizzles out (Such as attraction in water), your shield is manually removed (Like the Armageddon blast), or you get no shield from a recycle monitor.

Since V6 (Albeit it may just be my mod list, though none of them changed much at all from 5.6 (Previous version I used) to 6), Sync issues seems to be, heavily present. I've noticed it occurs more frequently when a homing based attack, such as the attraction's ability. Even sometimes projectile attacks and abilities have this issue, although rare.

Something minor to note too, Metal loses his Super colours since V5.6, and only gets them back during his dash. (Most likely intentional, but) The Metal Boss now also has a more powerful energy attack, which either I'm bad at the game, or it predicts movements too. Sigsegv with the Metal Boss seems to also occur when they, presumably, hit a wall with the energy blasts, whilst the wall is between the player and Metal. Though this will, never happen in vanilla SRB2, custom maps may be an issue with Metal fights, though unlikely.

I typed somewhat of alot here, so, I hope this isn't off-putting to read! Also, I hope this helps in any way!

I had noticed the shield issues just a little while ago; in the next update this should be fixed.

I'm still investigating the source of the sync issues. I believe it may have to do with a change made in 5.7, but I won't be able to confirm this until sometime later this weekend.

I will look into the colors situation and the Metal Sonic boss (I believe their projectiles are separate?).

Thank you for the feedback!

Version 6.1

This release disables a specific "simple" lock-on control mod which is suspected to be the source of some net consistency issues.

Additional changes include:
  • Adjustments to the shield stock system
  • Players always respawn with a pity shield
  • Sonic and Amy now have a max shield capacity of 1; Metal a capacity of 3
  • Refined charm beam's interaction with the shield stock system
  • Some various Metal Sonic tweaks and ring action buffs

Spoiler:
Code:
Maintenance
	Disabled MF2_FRET for simple lockon controls (suspected to be causing cfails)

Shields
	Players will always respawn in pity shields (for gametypes that allow it)
	Reserve shield is used when player loses their current shield to water (or by using Armageddon's active)

Sonic
	Reduced reserve shield count (2 -> 1)

Amy
	Reduced reserve shield count (2 -> 1)
	Charm Beam
		No longer rewards 10 rings to allies
		Shield stock cannot be used for the duration of Charm Beam's "disable"

Metal Sonic
	Increased reserve shield count (2 -> 3)
	Removed color changing functions from Metal Sonic's energy attacks
	Reduced charge time required to perform powered-up energy attacks (35 -> 25, 70 -> 50)
	Dash Burst
		Reduced ring cost (12 -> 8)
