Donkey Kong:ROM map

Jump to: navigation, search

PRG ROM is mapped from C000 to FFFF. All the addresses below correspond to this. In order to find the data in a .nes file simply subtract BFEF from the values below. A simple method is to change the first digit to 0, 1, 2 or 3 depending if it is C, D, E or F respectively. Then increase the result by 10 to compensate for the 8 byte header. I.E. C000 = 0010, D2F8 = 1308, etc.


Interrupt Vectors

  • FFFA to FFFB = NMI Vector: C85F
  • FFFC to FFFD = Reset Vector: C79E
  • FFFE to FFFF = IRQ Vector: FFF0

Game Variables

  • C014 to C027 = First element in the Array of demo Mario moves. Determines his direction
  • C028 to C03B = Second element of above array. Determines how many times to repeat direction in first element
  • C600 to C603 = Values of Bonus given

  • FA1B to FA1E = I-
  • FA1F to FA24 = TOP
  • FA25 to FA29 = II-
  • FA2A to FA36 = (M)(BONUS)(L)
