===Area Pointers - General Information===
+
=== Overworld Areas ===
  
There appear to be two layers of pointer coordinates for the overworld maps. The reason for this is still being researched, but it appears to give the game greater lattitude in distinguishing certain types of side-scrolling areas (single-entrance caves, single-screen fairy encounters, etc.) from others (palaces, towns, etc.). Failure to code new pointer coordinates with respect to their intrinsic HI/LOW status can result in junk areas being loaded, winding up in the original pointer location upon exiting an area, etc.  
+
Each area has 4 bytes that define various informations, like position on the Overworld, destination map number, destination world number, where Link starts in the side view mode, etc. Each byte is formatted as follows:
  
In both Eastern and Western Hyrule, the horizontal (X-axis) pointers range from 00 through 3F. Simultaneously, a second layer of X-axis pointers ranges from 40 through 7F. These "HI" values (always $40 more than their corresponding "LOW" values) tend to be used for towns and certain caves. Similarly, the vertical (Y-axis) pointers range from 1E to 68, top-to-bottom. The "HI" level pointers range from 9E to E8 (always $80 higher than their corresponding "LOW" values). The Y-axis "HI" values seem to be associated with towns, palaces and transition points to other maps.
+
<pre>Byte 0
  
In the following tables, each pointer will be identified as either "HI" or "LOW". Note that the HI/LOW status of a pointer on one axis has no relation to its status on the other; there are plenty of pointers with a mixed orientation such as HI-X / LOW-Y and vice versa.

‡ Again, the hidden nature of the 6th Palace results in a stored Y-value of 00. To bring the palace out of hiding (making it eligible for re-positioning elsewhere), replace this value with E6.

It's possible to alter the order in which Link "learns" magic spells by re-arranging the data from [$E58-$E67]. (For example, to make Thunder the first spell Link acquires, replace the data at [$E58-$E59] with that from [$E66-$E67]. Note, however, that the spell will still be under the first slot and named "Shield.")

Overworld

Overworld Map Data

0x506C - 0x538C - West Hyrule
0x665C - 0x6942 - Death Mountain
0x9056 - 0x936F - East Hyrule
0xA65C - 0xA942 - Maze Island

The 4 Overworld maps are 64 tiles wide, and their respective heights are variable. Overworld data is encoded in an RLE (Run Length Encoding) format. Each byte codes for a horizontal strip of terrain, as follows:

xxxx .... - Type
.... xxxx - Length (add 1)

Table of Tile Types:

0 = Town
1 = Cave
2 = Palace
3 = Bridge
4 = Desert
5 = Grass
6 = Forest
7 = Swamp
8 = Graveyard
9 = Road
A = Lava
B = Mountain
C = Water
D = Water (walkable)
E = Rock
F = Spider

Overworld in RAM

The compressed Overworld map is copied to Cartridge RAM to allow the game to modify the map. Data is stored between 0x7C00 and 0x7FFF.

Palace Pointers

These control which byte in Cartridge RAM gets turned into a single rock (0B) after completing a palace. Data is Cartridge RAM pointers, the base is 0x7C00, and the offset is how many bytes into the compressed map.

West Hyrule / Death Mountain

0x479F - Palace 1
0x47A1 - Palace 2
0x47A3 - Palace 3
0x47A5 - Palace 4 (in Death Mountain)

East Hyrule / Maze Island

0x879F - Palace 5
0x87A1 - Palace 6
0x87A5 - Invalid pointer
0x87A7 - Palace 4 (in Maze Island)

Overworld Areas

Each area has 4 bytes that define various informations, like position on the Overworld, destination map number, destination world number, where Link starts in the side view mode, etc. Each byte is formatted as follows:

Byte 0

.xxx xxxx - Y position
x... .... - External to this world

Byte 1

..xx xxxx - X position
.x.. .... - Second part of a cave
x... .... - ?

Byte 2

..xx xxxx - Map number
xx.. .... - Horizontal position to enter within map
    0 = enter from the left
    1 = enter at x=256 or from the right for 2 screens maps
    2 = enter at x=512 or from the right for 3 screens maps
    3 = enter from the right for 4 screens maps

Byte 3

...x xxxx - World number
..x. .... - ?
.x.. .... - Pass through
x... .... - Fall in hole

West Hyrule

0x462F - 0x466D - Areas Y position
0x466E - 0x46AC - Areas X position
0x46AD - 0x46EB - Areas map number

Level Data

  • 0x004C4C - 0x004C67 - Grass Area level data
  • 0x004C64 - 0x004C78 - Forest Area level data
  • 0x004C8C - 0x004CA6 - 50 point bag level data

Needs Sorting Still

0x018027 - 0x01811E - Note Tables

0x01E8B0 - Number of enemies to defeat for exp. bag or magic jar


0x01E910 - Type of vulnarablity Bit (red) has 0x01E911 - Type of vulnarability Bot (blue) has

Dwedit's documents (unsorted)

I just made a full document of what I know about Zelda 2's side-view areas, and copy-pasted it into datacrystal, I figure someone else can sort it out later. Haven't tested or verified it yet, so there may be a few mistakes. I just went by my level editor.

Zelda 2 sideview information

Address convention:
I don't want to bother explaining NES memory pointers.
I'll be using addresses as they reside in NES memory.  $8000-$BFFF is where data rom banks are mapped in NES memory.
When I say $XXXX in rom bank Y, that means a file address of ($XXXX-$8000) + Y*$4000, + $10.  So a NES memory address $8123 on bank 4 means a .nes file address of $10133.

Sometimes pointers point to areas other than $8000-$BFFF, such as the SRAM area $6000-$7FFF.

--------------
Rom or Ram?
--------------
This game was originally an FDS game, so it relies on lots of data being writable.

Enemies are stored in SRAM starting at $7000
Compressed overworld maps are stored in SRAM starting at $7C00.

--------------
Number of Maps
--------------
Each area has 63 maps, 0-62, map #63 is an invalid map number indicating that the destination is outside.

---------
Rom Banks
---------
A "Rom Bank" is 16k (4000) bytes long.
Each rom bank has two sets of 63 maps, except for 3 and 5, which only have one set.

bank 1 contains west hyrule/death mountain
bank 2 contains east hyrule/maze island
bank 3 contains towns
bank 4 contains palaces 1,2,5, then palaces 3,4,6.
bank 5 contains the great palace

----------------------------
Map and Enemy Pointer Tables
----------------------------
Map pointers point to ROM in the $8000-$BFFF range.
Enemy pointers point to SRAM in the $7000-$7xxx range, this is so the game can keep track of defeated enemies.

Information for the second set of maps/enemies comes $1ADD later.

Enemy data for all 126 maps is copied from $88A0 to $7000.  (length unknown?)

For the first set of 63 maps:
$8523 - map pointers
$85A1 - enemy pointers

For the second set of 63 maps:
$A000 - map pointers
$A07E - enemy pointers

For the "behind this map" maps (1-7) specified by header byte 3 (there is no back map #0):
$8000 - map pointers


----------------------
Room connectivity data
----------------------
Begins at $871B, 4 bytes per entry
Begins at $A1F8 for second set of 63 maps

xxxxxx.. = Destination map number (63 to go outside)
......xx = Starting X coordinate on destination (times 256)

Order of bytes:
	Left exit
	Down exit
	Up exit
	Right exit

===================
Sideview Map Format
===================
----------------------
First 4 bytes (header)
----------------------

Things may vary, most of this info applies to overworld sideview maps, some may not apply for towns and palaces, some numbers may be different for those.

0 - Size of level in bytes, including header
1 - Flags
	x....... - Which Object Set - This determines which objects can appear on this map!
	.xx..... - Width of level (in screens, add 1)
	...x.... - ?
	....x... - "Grass", when set, adds grass tiles to map row #9
	.....x.. - "bushes", when set, adds bushes tiles to map row #10
	......xx - ?
2 - Ground Graphics / initial floor/ceiling position
The levels are made up of objects, and ground tiles.  This byte selects initial floor/ceiling position, and set of ground tiles to be used by the level.
	x....... - "no ceiling",  top 2 rows of the map are set to background tile, this overrides all
	.xxx.... - Sets which set of tiles assigned to the Ground tiles
		0 = cave
		1 = forest
		2 = lava/death water
		3 = swamp
		4 = sand/grass
		5 = volcano (cave with brighter wall)
		6 = North Castle
		7 = Cave with clear wall (rocks outside)
	....xxxx - Initial position of floor/ceiling
		0-7 = Floor at 2-9 (from bottom), Ceiling at 1 from top
		8-14 = Ceiling at 2-8 (from top)
		15 = Filled in with wall tile
3 - Palette and back tiles byte
	xx...... - Palette for sprites
		0 = black borders
		1 = dark colored borders
		2,3 = not used by game, give weird colors
	..xxx... - Background Palette
		0 = north castle
		1 = cave palette (dark without candle for overworld maps)
		2 = desert
		3 = grass
		4 = forest
		5 = swamp
		6 = graveyard
		7 = "water" palette

Level bytes:
------------

0 - 
	xxxx.... - Y position
	....xxxx - Advance cursor X this many tiles after the object ("X space")
1 -
	xxxxxxxx - Object number
	If Object number = 15, and Y position < 13, then this is a 3 byte object (collectable item)
2 - (3 byte objects only)
	xxxxxxxx - For 3 byte objects only, object number (0-21, 22+ are not used)
	

Special Y posisitons:
	13 - Set new ground
		Sets the floor and ceiling to new values, just like header byte 2
		x....... - "no ceiling",  top 2 rows of the map are set to background tile
		.xxx.... - Not used, you can't change tiles for ground
		....xxxx - New position of floor/ceiling
			0-7 = Floor at 2-9 (from bottom), Ceiling at 1 from top
			8-14 = Ceiling at 2-8 (from top)
			15 = Filled in with wall tile
	14 - "Skip"
		Sets the cursor X directly to "x space" * 16.  Does not advance the cursor after this object as normal.
	15 - Extra objects, including lava and cactuses.  These have fixed-y coordinates.

Map Objects

This part really could be done much better, instead of hard-specifying everything, see how the game handles them, see what tiles it selects, see how it assembles the structures, etc.

Enemy Format
============

Header:
Byte 0 - Length of enemy data
When selecting "Strong Enemy" for random overworld battles, advance that many bytes, data for "strong enemy" follows the first enemy set.  Non-random battles do not have "strong enemy" information

Bytes for enemy data:
0 -
	....xxxx = X coordinate (in tiles)
	xxxx.... = Y coordinate (in tiles)
		Y coordinate 0 maps to row 1, otherwise maps to row 2+x
1 -
	xx...... = Upper bits of X coordinate
	..xxxxxx = Enemy number (0-63)

locations of towns and caves and such:
base addresses

0x462F  west hyrule
0x610C  death mtn

Base address is for "Y"
Add 3F to get "X"
Add 7E to get "Z"
Add BD to get "W"

"Y":
.xxxxxxx - Y position
x....... - Is external to this world?

"X":
..xxxxxx - X position
.x...... - Is second part of a cave?
x....... - ???

"Z":
..xxxxxx - Map number
xx...... - Horizontal position to enter within map
	00 = leftmost
	01 = enter at x=256? or rightmost for 512 pixel wide maps?
	10 = enter at x=512? or rightmost for 768 pixel wide maps?
	11 = enter at rightmost for 1024 pixel wide maps?
