ROM Address Length Type Description Details
$008000 39 bytes ASM This is the starting address of SMW. This takes care of basic initialization such as disabling IRQ, HDMA, DMA, clearing the SPC ports, enabling F-blank, disabling emulation mode, disabling decimal mode, initializing the direct page, and setting up the stack.
$008027 43 bytes ASM This is code is responsible for uploading the OAM clear routine to $7F8000. The uploaded routine is essentially an unrolled loop which stores #$F0 to all of the OAM mirror($0200) Y positions.
$008052 25 bytes ASM This is the main part of the SMW initialization routine. SPC engine upload, sample upload, OAM setup, windowing setup, and RAM clearing all happens here.
$00806B 14 bytes ASM This is the main game loop of SMW. It is used to wait for V-blank to complete before executing the code of the next frame. One of the frame counters ($13) is also incremented here.
$00810E 15 bytes Subroutine (JSR) OW Music uploader.
$008134 37 bytes Subroutine (JSR) Uploads level music bank.
$008159 17 bytes Subroutine (JSR) Credit music uploader.
$00816A 522 bytes Misc. SMW's NMI routine. For more information, see here.
$008179 49 bytes ASM Handles transfers to and from the SPC700 (I/O). Changing all values to [EA] (NOP) or jumping over the code effectively mutes all sound.
$008293 1 byte Misc. How many scanlines the status bar uses during a regular level.
$00835D 1 byte Layer 3 How many scanlines the status bar uses during the battles with Bowser, Ludwig, and Reznor.
$008370 1 byte Layer 3 How many scanlines the status bar and ceiling use during the battles with Morton and Roy.
$008374 162 bytes Misc. SMW's IRQ routine.
$008449 44 bytes Misc. Code that transfer Sprite OAM mirror (sprite OAM table at $7E0200-$7E041F, a total of 544 bytes) to register $2104 to draw sprites.
$008494 52 bytes Sprite tilemap related Copies OAM's extra bits (size and 9th bit X position: %000000SX) data stored in $7E0420, and reformats, or “compacts” each 4 bytes of that into each byte to $7E0400 (%SXSXSXSX). $0420 and $0400 format
$0084C8 8 bytes Subroutine (JSL) JSL wrapper for the stripe image uploader (pointer lies in $12), which can be found at $0085D2. Because it upload tiles, it must run in either f- or v-blank (e.g. in NMI).
$0084D0 258 bytes Stripe Image Stripe image pointer table. Each 24-bit pointer here corresponds to a value of $12, but only multiples of 3 are used (the first pointer is for value $00, the second is for value $03, the third for $06, etc.).
$0085D2 40 bytes Subroutine (JSR) Subroutine which uploads the stripe image pointed by $12 to VRAM. The pointer is loaded from the table at $0084D0, and then the routine at $00871E is called. Afterwards, if $12 is #$00, the stripe image length at $7F837B is set to 0 and the terminator $FF is written to the beginning of $7F837D. In any case, $12 is reset to 0 before returning.
To call this routine from outside bank 0 you can JSL to the wrapper at $0084C8. This should only be done during a blank period (usually NMI).
$0085FA 86 bytes Subroutine (JSR) Fills the entire layer 3 tilemap with tile 0x0FC (transparent tile) i.e. the code "empties" it. Also wipes the OAM before returning.
$008650 119 bytes Subroutine (JSR) This is the routine that polls the controller and updates $15, $16, $17, $18.
$0086A0 (x8A0) - Change to [9C A0 0D AD A0 0D A2 00] to cause both player 1 & 2 to be controlled by controller 1.
$0086C7 24 bytes Subroutine (JSR) Subroutine that initializes the OAM table in Roy, Morton and Ludwig's rooms. It first initializes the first 100 tiles to be 16x16 (by setting $0420,x to #$02), then jumps in the middle of the standard OAM clear routine (JSL $7F812E).
$0086DF 27 bytes Subroutine (JSL) Pointer subroutine: Jump to a 2-byte pointer, the position of the pointer used is "Position after the JSL + 1 + (A*2)". The subroutine should always be accessed by a JSL.
$0086FA 36 bytes Subroutine (JSL) Pointer subroutine: Jump to a 3-byte pointer, the position of the pointer used is "Position after the JSL + 1 + (A*3)". The subroutine should always be accessed by a JSL.
$00871E 143 bytes Stripe Image Stripe Image Uploader. Uses $00-$02 as a 24-bit pointer to tile data. See this thread how the stripe image format works. Must be run during a blank, usually NMI.

To call from a custom routine, do this:
- Store stripe image pointer (24-bit) to $00-$02
- Push 24-bit return address (bank -> mid -> lo)
- PHB : LDA #$00 : PHA : PLB
- PEA $84CD
- JSL $00871E
$0087AD 617 bytes Subroutine (JSL) This routine is the DMA routine in charge of updating layers one and two as needed. This is controlled by the addresses $1BE4 and $1CE6 when they are a non-zero value.
