Map Information

Data structures

struct FFTA_map

0x58 bytes

Member name Length Offset Type Maximum value Description
graphics_data 4 0x00 Pointer N/A A pointer diff pointing to the beginning of the map tile graphics data
arrangement_data 4 0x04 Pointer N/A A pointer diff pointing to the beginning of the data that arranges the tiles
Unknown 4 0x08 Pointer N/A A pointer diff pointing to something that has to do with clipping
palette_data 4 0x0C Pointer N/A A pointer diff pointing to the beginning of the palette data
height_data 4 0x10 Pointer N/A A pointer diff pointing to the beginning of the map height data
Unknown 68 0x14 N/A N/A Unknown, usually mostly blank

All pointer diffs in this structure are against 0x08569104.

struct FFTA_map_tile

struct FFTA_map_tile {
    uint8 height;
    int8 cannot_walk_on;
  • height: The height of the tile. There is no offset from what is displayed. Setting to higher than 99 (0x63) causes graphical glitches, but no crashing. Setting to 0 makes the tile invalid, such that it can't be selected. This value is unsigned.
  • cannot_walk_on: 0 if the tile can be walked on, 1 otherwise. Other values seem to have the same effect as a 1.

Data layout


Each block of map data starts at the top corner, and goes toward the right corner. The end of a row seems to be padded such that the last couple of bytes, until 0xXF, are zero. Unknown what happens if modified.

0x02007CB0(block of FFTA_map_tile): Beginning of map data in RAM


0x02007F14(void*): Pointer to 0x02007CB0. If changed, map data changes to correspond to the new pointer.


0x02007F1D(u?int8): NW-SE dimension of the map.

0x02007F1E(u?int8): Unknown. Set to 0x0C.

0x02007F1F(u?int8): NE-SW dimension of the map.


0x08019E7C(4 bytes): 0x02007CB0 - Address to start reading map height data from in scenes

0x0801F0DC(4 bytes): 0x02007CB0 - Address to write map height data to

0x08569104 - 0x0856915B: Map data pointers for map 0

0x08569104(Pointer): Pointer to map tile graphics data in map 0

0x08569108(Pointer): Pointer to map tile arrangement data in map 0

0x0856910C(Pointer): Pointer to unknown data in map 0

0x08569110(Pointer): Pointer to palette data in map 0

0x08569114(Pointer): Pointer to map height data in map 0

  • There are 163 maps, indexed from 0x00 to 0xA2. Most maps have a night version (palette shift), too.
