Battle Arena is an mIRC game in which you join and kill monsters and bosses to gain orbs and new weapons/skills/techniques. It’s similar to DMC, as that’s really the inspiration I drew from when I started working on it, but it includes more than just DMC monsters/bosses/weapons/items. The whole purpose was to make an mIRC game that is completely automated in terms of the battle system. There doesn’t need to be a DM around to do !next and control monsters, like in my other major mIRC bot (“Kaiou”).
Here players join the battle when the bot announces an open battle. After a few minutes, it will generate monsters/bosses and have them join the battle and the battle will start. When it’s a monster’s or boss’ turn, they will automatically do their things. When it’s the player’s turn, there’s a few commands you can do (attack with a weapon, attack with a technique, do a skill, use an item). If the player idles for too long the bot will force their turn and skip over them. This is done so that someone can’t disappear for an hour and cause the battle to drag on forever.
There’s a bunch of weapons that can be bought and each weapon has a few techniques attached to them. Unlike in Kaiou, you can’t make your own techniques but rather have to buy them using red orbs that you earn from battle. You buy weapons using black orbs when you obtain via winning boss fights and being alive at the end of one.
That’s really the gist of what the bot is.
The current release of the bot is version 3.2. There is no “lite” version for this version of the bot. However, you can always make a backup of your system.dat, garden.dat, shopnpcs.dat and battlestats.dat and copy them back over once you install version 3.2. As a reminder, please do not install the bot in any folder that has spaces (such as C:\Program Files). I recommend C:\BattleArena
