Dragon Quest V, VI, and 16-bit III data dive found

Recommended Posts

I've recently stumbled upon a website, https://w.atwiki.jp/dq_binary, that lists the locations of several bits of data in the 8-bit and 16-bit versions of classic games, with the example below being a part of the RAM data for 5 run through a quick yandex translation. I hope this information advances Dragon Quest hacking as much as possible.

7e2000-7e2a9f: range to be included in the save data
7e2019-7e201b: gold on hand

7e3000 -: people's data(20h*X, 00-07:operation character or vehicle, 08-1f: town people)
7E3020: x-coordinate
7E3040: x-coordinate higher
7E3080: Y coordinate
7E30A0: upper y coordinate
7e31e0:character orientation(+10:right, +20:left, +40:down, +80: up, lower 4bit is the next orientation)
7E36E0: reaction number when talking
7E3700: top response number when talking
7E3200: character sequence number (starting from 00)
7E3220:character graphic number
7E34E0: Sprite size

Who cares? Those games are already translated.

I'm talking about hacks dumb-dumb, such as moving those modern scripts to the original versions for starters. Think before you speak.
