How to Find Object Data

Contents

Step 1: Get the .xml file with all the object data

The file with object information can be found here

Clicking the link above will lead you to an index where you may find links to the .xml files with the object information of the current build. If you navigate up from there (../), there are some other assets to explore. For now, download the Objects.xml file.

If you do not have a text editor with syntax highlighting it might be easier to go here. This link essentially provides the various sections of the Objects.xml file in more manageable pieces. You can open individual sections in your browser, and Chrome can provide syntax highlighting. Click on the section that will most likely hold the object you are looking for, and skip ahead to step 3

Step 2: Open the .xml file

Open the .xml file with some sort of text editor by either double clicking the file or right clicking, going to “Open with”, and selecting your preferred program. Those with syntax highlighting are pretty nifty, but something like WordPad will do well enough.

Note: The file can be opened with MS Word or Notepad, but MS Word will not find specific objects and Notepad will not always show all formatting (At least for me).

If you open with WordPad a window like the one below will open up.

Step 3: Find what you are looking for

Pull up the text editor’s or browser’s “Find” window. You can usually pull it up by pressing ctrl+f. On WordPad the “Find” button is listed under the “Home” tab.

Type in the name of the object you are searching for and press the “Find Next” button. You should be lead to a section of text that matches what you told the program to find.

For those of you who are using your browser, you should see something like so.

Step 4: Interpret object information

In between the <Object type="(stuff)" id="(Name)"> and the </Object> tags you will find information about that object. The content will vary depending on what that object is.

(note that the Object’s id may not correspond exactly to its ingame name; if a name is vague or does not match its ingame name, its matching value can be found in this table)

Information can be found between tag pairs or from single tags. Below is a table of tags and a short description about what it means. Not all information listed will be used in the wiki.

XP gained from one enemy is capped at 10% the XP needed to level up, even at level 20. Therefore, any enemy with at least 1950 HP will have its base XP (i.e. Max HP / 10) set to 195. For these enemies, only XPMult controls how much XP they award.

Example: Septavius the Ghost God

If we look up Septavius, something like the image below comes up

From <MaxHitPoints>, we find that maximum HP is 8000.
From <Defense>, we find that DEF is 12.
From <Flying>, we find that Septavius is a flying enemy.
From <Quest>, we find that players can have a red quest arrow that points to Septavius.
From <God>, we find that killing Septavius counts as a god kill.
From <StasisImmune>, we find that Septavius is immune to stasis.
From <Level>, we find that the player need to be at least level 1 in order to see Septavius’s red quest arrow.
From <XPMult>, we find that killing Septavius gives 137 EXP, following the formula. Note that Septavius has more than 1950 HP and so is subject to the XP cap, described above.

EXP = 195 * XPMult
137 = 195 * 0.7


If we take a look at his projectiles, we see something like below.

From <Speed>, we find that his White Bullet has a speed of 8 tiles/sec and his Brown Magic has a speed of 9 tiles/sec, following the formula.

Speed (in tiles/sec) = Speed/10
8 = 80 / 10


From <Damage>, <MinDamage>, and <MaxDamage>, we find that White Bullet will always deal 75 damage and Brown Magic will deal a range of 40 to 45 damage.
From <LifetimeMS>, we find that White Bullet has a life of 1500 miliseconds and Brown Magic has a life of 2600 miliseconds. With this, we can find the range (or rather the amount of tiles the projectile will travel)

Range or Distance traveled (in tiles) = Speed(tiles/sec) * LifetimeMS * (1 sec/ 1000 milisecond).
12 = 8 * 1500 * (1/1000)
23.4 =9 * 2600 * (1/1000)


So White Bullet travels 12 tiles and Brown Magic travels 23.4 tiles.
From <ArmorPiercing>, we find that White Bullet is an armor piercing attack.
From <MultiHit>, we find that White Bullet and Brown Magic can hit more than one player during its lifetime.
From <Boomerang>, we find that Brown Magic will make a return path back to Septavius during its lifetime.
From <ConditionEffect> and duration=, we find that Brown Magic will cast Quiet for 1 sec on players that it hits.

Additional XP examples

  • Consider the Lizard God, an enemy with 900 HP and an XPMult of 4.0. Because it has less than 1950 HP, the XP it awards can be directly calculated from the formula: XP gained = Base XP * XPMult = (Max HP / 10) * XPMult = (900 / 10) * 4.0 = 360 XP.
  • Consider The Forgotten King, an enemy with 150,000 HP and an XPMult of 35.8975. Because it has more than 1950 HP, the base XP it awards its capped at 195, meaning that only XPMult controls the amount of XP received: XP gained = 195 * XPMult = 195 * 35.8975 = 7,000 XP.
