Chrono Cross Fieldscript Notes

General Information[edit]

Chrono Cross[edit]

"Fieldscript" is the name given to the set of commands that loads and controls the rooms and their contents. A fieldscript file has 0x80 bytes of header containing an array used to access the global variables from the local room, then a number of entries, then a pointer table(?). The script bloc starts just after that.

Per yaz0r: "script 0 [for a given entity] is the init script, script 1 is ran[sic] every frame, script 2 is used when interacting with the entity and script 3 is used when collisioning with the entity (mostly used for entity that trigger room change). Also Entity 0 is always the director, and the last is the debug entity present in nearly every room (entity 15 in my exemple). This is all guess work, but it seems to fit." (Note: there are some rooms where the debug entity is //not// actually the last one.)

Typically, a 16-bit parameter indicating an action target can be either an ordinary value (if the high bit is set—AND the parameter with 7FFF to get the actual value) or the contents of a variable (if the high bit is not set). Script offsets such as jump targets or subroutine locations are an exception: they are normal values and do not need to be ~ANDed.

"If it's a variable, the game computes the variable index like this:"
int idx = (value & 0x7FFF) >> 6;
int localVariable = roomLocalTable[idx];
int globalVariableIdx = ((value & 0x7FFF) >> 1) & 0x1F
if(localVariable & (1 << globalVariableIdx)) // signed or not ?
 {
 return (UInt16)variableTables[globalVariableIdx];
 }
 else
 {
 return (Int16)variableTables[globalVariableIdx];
 })


Only some of the variables' purposes are known. All seem to be two bytes long:

Address Name
0x02 ~ROOM_PARAM
0x04 ~MULTI_CHOICE_RESULT
0x06 ~MAP_ID
0x08 ~PREVIOUS_MAP_ID
0x0C ~PARTY_MEMBER_0
0x0E ~PARTY_MEMBER_1
0x10 ~PARTY_MEMBER_2
0x18 ~DIGIT_ENTRY_RESULT
0x2A ~USED_KEY_ITEM
0x32 ~BATTLE_RESULT
0x34 ~DEBUG_MODE
0x44 ~CURRENT_FRAME
0x4C ~SAVE_RESULT
>= 0x400 (room variables)

Single-byte Character Identifiers

Where a script command uses a single byte to identify the target character:

  • Values less than 0x80 refer to the number of an entity in the current script space
  • 0xFB is the current entity
  • 0xFF is the current party leader
  • 0xFE is the second party member
  • 0xFD is the third party member
  • Values between 0x80 and 0xF0 refer to the ~PCs in standard numbered order (0x80 = Serge, 0x81 = Kid, 0x82 = Guile, etc.)

Currently identified commands (Note: a lot of these are cribbed from yaz0r's code, which I //hope// I am decoding properly. Some codes, such as B8, are not mentioned in his decompiler, so I assume that no actual use of them in the game's script has ever been found.)

[1] Additional stuff about opcode 02: TTUU - First value/variable. VVWW - Second value/variable. YYZZ - Offset for a jump. XX divided into two parts. 0x00 means both parameters will be variables. 0x40 - only the first will be a variable (second - value). 0x80 - only the second will be a variable (first - value). Second part is a condition parameter: 0x00 - '==', 0x01 - '!=', 0x02 - '>', 0x03 - '<', 0x04 - '>=', 0x05 - '<=', 0x06 - '$', 0x07 - '!=', 0x08 - '|', 0x09 - '$', 0x0A - '~'.

Basically, the code means:

var[0x0400] = rand() % 6
switch(var[0x0400])
{
 case 0:
 op42(0x00, -642, -99, var[0x00C0])
 op42(0x01)
 wait(60)
 break;
 case 1:
 op42(0x00, -627, -99, var[0x00C0])
 op42(0x01)
 WAIT(40)
 break;
 case 2:
 op42(0x00, -607, -99, var[0x00C0])
 op42(0x01)
 WAIT(60)
 break;
 case 3:
 WAIT(60)
 break;
 case 4:
 SET_ANIMATION(9)
 break;
 case 5:
 WAIT(90)
 break;
 case 6:
 SET_ANIMATION(1)
 break;

Lucca's Letter to Kid

Apparently, if you let the game load Grobyc's model instead of the letter's, Luccia will hold mini Grobyc in her hand when you talk to her.
