Anyone with time and knowledge of hex editing can hack FF3j now! Well until that thread gets old and goes away like the old threads there do.

**scratches head**

I suck. What the hell is a TSA table anyway? I don't remember half this stuff XD

(this was in my file but i think disch wrote it)



Quick Explanation of how maps work:

RLE Compression:

There are 80h tiles used for maps only, so it uses 7 bits. If the high (8th) bit is on, though, then the byte after says how many of those tiles go in a row. For example:


40 37 81 04 60 9B 20

40 and 37 just make one of each of the respective tiles cause the high bit is off.
On the 81 however, the high bit is on, then there are four tile 01s after that (subtract 80 for the high bit to get the 01, and the next byte says 4 of them)
After that, there's a tile 60, then thirty-two (20h) tile 1Bs.

There are a lot of maps in the game, sorted into two main categories, basically the maps on the floating continent, and maps not on it. If you use a debugger or memory viewer (i like nnnesterj's for this) and byte $0078, if it's 00 or 01 means you're on the floating continent. If it's 02 or above you're not. Byte $0048 tells the specific map. Following is a short list of what i've written down, it takes a while though and i got bored...


(my stuff again)

FINDING A MAP'S ROM LOCATION

To find a map's location in the rom, basically you take the map number from $0048, and you take the following byte from the ROM

00A10 + $0048 if it's on the floating continent
00B10 + $0048 if it's not on the floating continent

Take that value, go to 22010 + twice that byte to get a pointer (two byte pointers, thats why you double it)

Add the pointer value to 22010 and you've got the location of the map.

List of Maps

Spell Effect Byte's Effects (seem to be special cases instead of bit-encoded)

00: Flare, Meteo, Holy, Bahamut, Quake, Leviathan, Fire 3, Bio, Aero 2, Odin, Bolt 3, Titan, Ice 3, Ifrit, Fire 2, Ice 2, Bolt 2, Ramuh, Bolt, Aero, Shiva, Fire, Ice, Chocobo, Venom, Break

00h Does damage and inflicts negative status equal to the status byte.

01: Cure 4, Cure 3, Cure 2, Cure

01h Cures HP. Dunno about the status byte, but if i were a betting man, I'd say it inflicted negative status.

Note: Cure 4 has DC as its power, but it heals full Hp though... Special Case?

02: WWind

02h: Has W.Wind's effect. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

03: Drain

03h: Drains HP. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

04: Blind, Mute, Confu, Brak2, Sleep, Death, Kill, Warp, Exit, Shade

04h Inflicts negative status equal to the status byte.

05: Life, Life2

05h is the life spells. Seems to cure negative status and heal HP if the status was cured. Dunno if it works for anything other than healing death. The power byte effects the HP healed.

06: Pure, Wash, Soft, Heal

06h Heals status equal to the status byte.

07: Mini, Toad

07h Heals and cures status equal to the status byte.

08: Safe

08h Gives defense. The power byte seems to control the amount it increases. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

09: Haste

09h has haste's effect. The power byte seems to control the amount it increases (hence why white wizard's haste works better than a godswine). Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

0A: Wall

0Ah has wall's effect. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

0B: Erase

0Bh has erase's effect. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

0C: Sight

0Ch has sight's effect. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.

0D: Libra

0Dh has libra's effect. Dunno about status, probably inflicts it.


0Eh - 11h are glitchy

12h: Exploder

13h - 15h are glitchy

16h-18h are glitchy

19h: Escapes battle when spell is cast.

Everything else is glitchy


(end of direct quoting)

Thats alot of data like i said, and the comments by the poster made me unsure of whether I should copy and paste but I guess its fine. All of this was posted by sqpat17 from there so credit him mightily for it.
