Back to the [[EarthBound:{{{loc}}} map|{{{loc}}} map]]

The Item Properties Table stores most of the data for items, including the name, type, effect, and help text pointer. The first item is named "null" and has an index of 0.

Format

Name

  • Length: 25 bytes (0x18)
  • Range: 00-18

Name of the item in plain EarthBound text.

Type

  • Length: 1 byte (0x1)
  • Range: 19

Type of the item. Affects how these bytes toward the end are interpreted. Uses binary:

COLUMNS      NL MT ST OP (null, main type, sub type, options)
   type 00 - 00 00 00 00 - franklin badge
   type 04 - 00 00 01 00 - teddy bears
   type 08 - 00 00 10 00 - broken item

Equipable items

   type 16 - 00 01 00 00 - bash
   type 17 - 00 01 00 01 - shoot

   type 48 - 00 11 00 00 - hand-aid, protractor, ruler - healing items
Battle items - direction [00] = enemy
                         [01] = party
   type 52 - 00 11 01 00 - battle offensive items
   type 53 - 00 11 01 01 - battle defensive items
Plot items - [00] = regular
             [10] = works only in specifc area
             [11] = works only when talking to right Sprite
                     (door, atm, person)
   type 56 - 00 11 10 00 - sound stone, meterornium
   type 58 - 00 11 10 10 - zom paper, hawk eye, bike - Limited area
   type 59 - 00 11 10 11 - keys, ATM, plot items - used at someone

  • Range: 1C

Each bit is a true false flag. The following list shows the hexadecimal of the bit paired with what happens when that bit is set:

  • 0x01 = Ness can use
  • 0x02 = Paula can use
  • 0x04 = Jeff can use

  • Length: 2 bytes (0x2)
  • Range: 1D-1E

The effect of using the item.

"Strength", "Extra Power Increase", "Extra Power", "Special"

  • Range: 1F-22

These bytes, with their names listed in the order they appear in the ROM, have different effects depending on the type of the item. The names are not very accurate to what they do, but they have stuck from when the table was first documented. They are abbreviated as STR, EPI, EPW, and SPE in the following list showing their meaning for different types:
