The Dialog Window Attributes Table stores the coordinates and dimensions which each dialog window will use in EarthBound. The coordinates and dimensions of dialog windows in this table are stored in units of 8 PPU. It is important to note that the size of the screen in pixels is 256x224 (or 32x28, in units of 8 PPU), because the dialog window should not extend past the boundary of the screen.
