Back to the ROM map

The PSI Names List holds the sizes and locations for each entry in the ending cast roll of EarthBound. This does not include entries that change based on player character names, such as "Paula's Dad."

Format

[AA AA BB]

[AA AA] - Offset, in 8x16 tiles, of the entry in big endian format, with 30 corresponding to the tile at 2130FA.

[BB] - The number of 8x16 pixel blocks in the entry

Format per name

The starting section for the formatting begins with the compressed graphics found at 21DA35-21E6E6 (000cb2), which are the Character Names for the Cast Sequence.

The format basically takes the names based in the order of how the names are stored in the compressed graphics.
