Vagrant Story:Level data

Level data is stored in the \MAP folder.

Individual rooms ("maps") are in the MPD files.

Rooms are grouped into "zones" ( ZND files). This has nothing to do with the in-game subdivision in "areas" (i.e. Catacombs, Wine Cellar). Actually an area may be made of multiple zones, and a zone may span multiple areas. A zone contains data shared by all its maps (enemies and textures). It also contains the CD addresses of the map files and ZUD files (enemy graphics) for that zone.

Finally, the list of CD addresses of zone files is located in the game's Main exe.

So, addressing a specific map requires:

  • a zone number (index in the list in the main exe)
    • a map number (index in the list in the zone file)
