Overview

The battle actions table is mostly unknown, but it serves as a lookup table for an enemy's action values; it also contains indices into the battle text table.

Format

There are 650 entries; each entry contains 48 bytes.

Field listing

Table view

       00   01   02   03   04   05   06   07   08   09   0A   0B   0C   0D   0E   0F
    +--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
00  | [        A        ] [   B   ] [   C   ] [                 D                  ->
10  | <-                                     D                                     ->
20  | <-                                     D                                      ]

Sprite colour

The first byte is either 0x46 or 0x48. If 0x46, the sprite gets white before printing the text (Damaging actions). If 0x48, the sprite gets black before printing the text (Not damaging actions).

Plays sound

If 0xFFFF, attack sound effects get played, if 0x0000, they do not.

Info chunk

A group of bytes that's the same for PSI data, Item data, Battle skills table and Battle actions table.
Let's just call it Battle Info chunk.
