Multiplayer?

Are there any plans for a multiplayer version of Oni?  I'm actually curious about that.  smile

Re: Multiplayer?

Come on, you should look up the old posts, or the Oni Galore site.....
It was being worked on at some point, I'm unsure as to whether or not it was a success or if it is even still being worked on.

And with strange aeons even death may die

Re: Multiplayer?

I concur. stripey, you suck for not browsing archives on the subject. Boo ya! smile
I don't want to talk for hours about this, but basically MP was more or less given up on by a few groups and individuals.
There's still hope, though (and actually, more and more hope as time passes), as long as SFeLi doesn't give up smile
SFeLi is the guy who's given us the Dev Mode, Direct Input controls, widescreen support and a few other nicicles.
The long-term goal is to unASM and document a very honorable percentage of Oni's engine, and then to:
*release an Oni SE executable: non-retail features (dev mode, widescreen), multiple language support, fixed bugs, extended BSL presets (more powerful scripting)
*release a trainer that lets you hook and control everything that's documented; similar interfaces could be used by multiplayer clients
So multiplayer is not dead, but it's not in active development, either. Development doesn't make much sense before Oni SE is there.

Re: Multiplayer?

What I want is a little chat with the bald guy in both pictures...
And the new trivia is: who's the bald guy in those two pictures?

Re: Multiplayer?

geyser: Where did you find those photos?  That's awesome!

That could be the same demo I saw at E3.  Apple had their own room and the computers were setup just like in the photos.

Re: Multiplayer?

The pictures are from the Yahoo! Games Oni page.
The navigation is a bit messed-up, and so are the resources.
Those tho pictures are credited to Gamespot, among others.
But they are nowhere to be found on Gamespot's Oni pages.
They're actually hosted on yet another server, will look it up.
Check out the trivia thread for more on the bald guy smile
