Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team:Scripting

From Data Crystal
Jump to: navigation, search

Much of the game uses it's own specific scripts to move along the plot and have characters interact.

Every script command is 16 byte (0x10) long. The first two bytes are the command identifier, and the rest are the arguments. The last four bytes in a statement are usually reserved for a pointer if needed.

Command identifier, argument, and pointer are in little-endian form.


Some commands have the same or similar functions as others and jump to the same initial location when they are parsed. Individual command function locations are found through the Main Command Parsing Code.

Notable among these are the commands that are skipped in the Main Command Parsing Code 40, 96, CC, CD, CE, D0, D1, D9, F2, F3, F4, F5, and F6.


Below are described the known script commands:
