Stadium critical hit calculation?

I'm not the best at assembly, but reading through this I think I found some inaccuracies? (or at least some stuff that doesn't match up with the formula?)

  • What is going on/what are the differences between what happens at the three sections titled "Critical Hit", "¡Un Golpe Crítico!", and "Critical Hit calculation"? I have no idea what's going on in the first one, and the last two both seem responsible for calculating the ratio together.
  • For a regular move (no Focus Energy), tracing the assembly starting at "¡Un Golpe Crítico!", what is the "If A0 ≠ 1, jump to 0x35C52C" line responsible for? Later, it looks like "BEQ R0, R0, $0035C558" is always true (since zero = zero) which means that a chunk of code below it is always skipped? This would throw off the BaseSpeed + 76 >> 2 formula.
  • Which lines are ultimately responsible for manipulating the critical hit rate, for the normal case, Focus Energy case, high critical-hit ratio case, and both Focus Energy+high crit ratio together case? How much does using a high critical hit ratio increase the probability of landing a CH?

Replied on your Talk page. --Mantidactyle (talk) 18:16, 8 January 2015 (EST)
Thank you so much! Argh, I can't believe I completely forgot about the branch/jump delay in assembly (after having taken it just the previous year in college and having that pounded into our heads), that clears up so much stuff. Zowayix (talk) 14:18, 9 January 2015 (EST)

Link Battle PRNG length -- "then it's up to D151, right ? I only saw 9 numbers changing but it might be because I forced a FF at d151"

I saw the pokered disassembly's wram.asm: "wd148:: ds10"; but looking at engine/battle/core.asm lines 6728 to 6739, the loop runs for a total of 9 times.

Interestingly, in engine/cable_club.asm lines 35-43, the loop runs ten times there, further strenghtening my initially wrong belief. I apologize for causing that confusion. Motus (talk) 11:05, 1 February 2015 (EST)

Stadium (1/2) Git repository

Your Stadium stuff is really neat. I’ve been poking at the ROMs a bit myself (here). Would be neat to work together on this. We discuss it on IRC (#pret at if you’re interested. IIMarckus (talk) 20:35, 3 March 2015 (EST)

Game internal name

Which internal name should be used for Wii games? --Hiccup (talk) 11:16, 5 July 2015 (EDT)

Yeah. There is a name in the ISO's header. --Hiccup (talk) 08:35, 6 July 2015 (EDT)

Uploader doesn't seem to be working

When I tried to replace F-Zero Climax's title screen. It gave this error:

Could not read or write file "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/7/7f/F-zero_Climax_Title.PNG" due to

I do not have the rights to be able to solve this directly, you should send a PM to one of the admins on forums about this ? I just sent a message on #datacrystal on irc about this. --Mantidactyle (talk) 11:56, 6 July 2015 (EDT)
I've PM'd DarkSol. --Hiccup (talk) 15:05, 6 July 2015 (EDT)


Mario page can tell you if the game is running, fighting, 2D, 3D, which video game etc...

also can have a category Mario, but Mario page is better than one category, you can inform for example the video game,

in the page Mario: I put separate kinds of Mario, and also informed his video games

remember that the categories just a list of things and they can not report more than one list, so Mario page is useful Mascote Arco Iris (talk) 12:53, 9 November 2015 (EST)

Ok. Just be sure to not use a title that is also the name of a game though in that case. --Mantidactyle (talk) 23:43, 10 November 2015 (EST)
