Random Cast

This is what the weapon Casts when it is swung. The ones that say "Nothing?" are ones that in my testing, did not do anything, but may infact do something under other conditions that I was too lazy to expirament with. You can also assume that any of the ones with a question mark (?) are unsure, if you can correct one of them, please let me know, I'd be much obliged.

If they are blank, or unlisted, this means they are untested (512 values is alot...). If you get the chance to test them, please let me know what they do.

Due to the fact that abilities normally require certain conditions or situations, some of them simply won't be useful (Throw for instance). Additionally, Magics/Abilties with a special method of targeting (Death Roulette, for instance) almost always do not keep their targeting mode, and will simply effect the target struck by the weapon.

*1 : Does Nothing
*2 : Big Red X
*3 : Freezes Game
*4 : Casts Fire Sword
*5 : seems to 100% defence from physical attacks

SRAM Format / Save Format

This document is notes on the save data in Final Fantasy V. With this information you can modify data however you wish.

FFV has 8 Kilobytes of SRAM divided up into 5 parts. The first four parts are the 4 save slots. They are arranged on $700 byte increments but only $600 bytes are used in each file. At $1C00 most of the area is empty except for the end around $1FF0 which holds data about each save file. All four save files are the same data just at different locations. The final area will be explained first.

Offset Description
$0000 Save Slot 1
$0700 Save Slot 2
$0E00 Save Slot 3
$1500 Save Slot 4
$1FF0 Checksum and Use Table

At $1FF0, which would appear at $7FF0 relative to the [[SNES Memory Map]], there is a table of four 16-bit checksums. Then at $1FF8 there is another table which contains $E41B if a save file is in use, anything else and it is not. The checksums are generated by taking the $600 byte file and adding each 16-bit word together. Carry is used so if the value overflows from $FFFF you will set carry and impact the next addition with ADC.

Example:      $FFFF + $0001 = $0000 + Carry
Final Result: $0001

Whenever a file appears for loading or saving the checksum is quickly calculated to determine if the file is valid. If the checksum fails or the $1FF8 table entry doesn't contain $E41B then it appears blank, however it may still contain data as it is not overwritten.

You can use this code patch to disable failure of checksums allowing for any data to be consider valid.

Inventory for each slot is at $140. The first $100 bytes make up a table of Item types. For example $E0 is a Potion. At $240 is another $100 byte table for how many of each item you have.

At $03F7 there appears to be bit tables which store what abilities each character has learned. No exact details available yet. May be $14 byte tables for each character.

Masks

These Masks apply to all characters.

$0450 - Sword Ability Bitmask, then White Magic Ability Bit Mask then Black Magic, then DmMagic, then Esper, then Song, Ending at $045B as last byte of Songs. $0447 - Money / Gold / Gil (24-bit) $05D8 - Map X Position $05D9 - Map Y Position

Compression

In this game compression, an 8-bit value is used to determine the nature of the following groups of data. A value of 1 indicated an uncompressed value. This means one byte is read from the input file and then written to the output file.

A value of 0 indicated a compressed value. This means two bytes are read, from which a pointer to previous data can be generated. The pointer contains the length of the data to be retrieved as well as the offset for it to be retrieved from. Since pointers aren't used for 1-2 byte values, a value of 3 is added to the length.
