Starting equipment

Every two bytes, there's the value of one of the equipped items of a character when you first use it. These items are not considered by the game, since the inventory is set by Game logic when you add a character to the group.
However, if you go to the Debug Room before the end of the Prologue, the inventory isn't set and the game uses these items.

Stats

There are 11 stats entries: one for the starting/base stats, and then ten entries used for extrapolating a stats curve (one point at every tenth level). Each entry has 16 bytes:

  • 00-03 (04) = HP target
  • 04-07 (04) = PP target
  • 08-08 (01) = Offense target
  • 09-09 (01) = Defense target
  • 0A-0A (01) = IQ target
  • 0B-0B (01) = Speed target
  • 0C-0F (04) = Kindness target

The game will try to meet these targets, but it adds some randomness to it as well, so the exact values aren't usually met.

Playable

If byte BC is not 00, it won't be possible to see the Status of the character and their inventory. If byte BD is not 01, the character won't be playable in battle.

Animal value

Animal party members have these bytes set.
Salsa has a value of 0x06 and Boney has a value of 0x07.
It's unknown what these bytes do and if they're used or not. (Probably not, since the game sets everything with Game logic when a character joins.)

PSI learning table

This table is only ever considered for Lucas and Kumatora; everyone else's tables are empty and never get read.

The table contains 32 entries, each consisting of four bytes:

  • 00-01 (02) = PSI entry number
  • 02-03 (02) = Level learned (use 100, or 0x64, if the ability uses event-based learning)

Attack sound pointer

These bytes point to the sound of the characters's attacks. These numbers correspond to the song pointer table, and not to the sound player songlist.
