|$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.|
|$008A4E||43 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Clear RAM subroutine. This is part of the reset routine.
Specifically, it clears ram $00-$FF (direct page), $0200-$1FFF, $0681 and the stripe image table (by setting $7F837B to #$0000 and the start of $7F837D to #$FF).
|$008A79||59 bytes||ASM||The routine that sets up certain VRAM-related registers in normal levels.
- $008A80: Default value for $2107 .
- $008A85: Default value for $2108 .
- $008A8A: Default value for $2109 .
- $008A8F: Default value for $210B .
- $008A94: Default value for $210C .
- $008AAB: Default value for $2130 , although it's actually stored to the mirror here (i.e. $44).
$210A is never set, since it is only ever used in Mode 0.
|$008ACD||138 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Routine that updates the mode 7 matrix parameters mirrors at $2E-$34 using the rotation and scale parameters at $36-$38. SMW calls it every frame in mode 7 bosses (when $0D9B is >= #$80), and the "Easy Mode 7 patch" calls it every frame in mode 7 levels, but you may need to call it manually if you're using mode 7 in special situations (for example, on the Overworld).
On SA-1 roms, this must be called when running on the SNES CPU.
|Call routine code|
|$008C59||40 bytes||Layer 3||Tile array for numbers in bonus star counter.|
|$008C81||126 bytes||Layer 3||Default status bar tiles info table. Format for each 8x8 tile:

*$008CC1-$008CF6: Third line of status bar
*$008CF7-$008CFE: bottom line of status bar (4 bottom tiles of item box)
|Table of addresses|
|$008D8B||1 byte||Timer||Timer speed (USE WITH $008E2E)|
|$008D90||28 bytes||Misc.||These four tables indicate the DMA settings and the source address to use for the status bar tiles (the ones that are uploaded at the very beginning of the level). The tables get stored in the order of $43x0-$43x6.|
|$008DAC||59 bytes||Layer 3||The routine that draws the status bar onto the screen. It uses DMA to write the Layer 3 tiles to VRAM.|
|$008DF5||5 bytes||Layer 3||The tiles that make up Luigi's name in the status bar.|

$008E28 - Change this address to AD to disable the timer.
$008E2E - Timer speed (USE WITH $008D8B)
$008E45 - Tile that each timer digit resets to after reaching 0. Can be any value from $00-$80. (e.g. Change to $0F: 100 -> 0FF -> 0FE ... 0F0 -> 0EF ... etc.)

$008E6B - [22 06 F6 00] Change to [EA EA EA EA] to not kill Mario when the timer reaches zero. The timer will count down normally and stop at zero, but Mario will not die
$008EDB - Change this and/or $008F09 from 20 12 90 to EA EA EA to disable writing the score to the status bar when playing as Mario and/or Luigi, respectively. Useful if you want to place another counter in place of the score using Smallhacker's Status Bar Editor. Note: This alone will NOT stop writing blank tiles if the first N tiles/bytes at $0F29-$0F2E contains the value #$00 (the "0" graphic). To prevent that, consider using this patch.
$008EE3 - Change to BRA  to write zeroes instead of blank tiles to Mario's score counter. Use with $008F11.
$008F11 - Change to BRA  to write zeroes instead of blank tiles to Luigi's score counter. Use with $008EE3.

|$008F1D||30 bytes||Misc.||Routine that handles actually increasing the player's coin count and giving a life from 100 coins, controlled by RAM address $7E13CC.|
|$008FDC||1 byte||Layer 3|| If the player has collected at least this number of Dragon Coins, the status bar will display $008FE0 Dragon Coins instead (none by default).|

|$008FF0||2 bytes||Layer 3||Location of the first Dragon Coin tile in the status bar.||Diagram|
|$008FFA||24 bytes||Misc.||Powers of 10 table for 6-digit* HexToDec routine at $009012 used to display the player's score. Note: These are 16-bit words, but are handled as 32-bit subtraction for the low and high words individually.
*SMW displays the score as 7 digits, but the score is actually a 6-digit (decimal) number stored internally, the 7th digit "0" is a static tile not part of this number.
|$009012||51 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||6-digit* HexToDec subroutine to write a player's score into status bar.
Call with Y = #$00, X as the position to write to on the status bar (standard is #$14), and $00-$03 as the score to write (in hexadecimal). Note that this routine does not remove leading 0s; that is handled at $008EDE and $008F0C.
Works like this: count how many subtractions by 10n (with n=5) without the difference going into the negatives; that number of subtractions is the digit for the 10ns place. Then repeat but with 10n-1. This is the "left-to-right" version of base conversion using repeated subtraction to emulate the 32-bit division by 10n.
*SMW displays the score as 7 digits, but the score is actually a 6-digit (decimal) number stored internally, the 7th digit "0" is a static tile not part of this number.
|$009045||12 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||The hexadecimal to decimal subroutine (in short HexToDec) which converts a hexadecimal 8-bit value into a decimal string. To use for JSL, use JSL $00974C instead.
-A: 8-bit value to convert
-A: 1s digit (calculated via repeated subtraction until < 10; “modulo” by 10)
-X: 10s digit (calculated via how many subtraction until A < 10; “quotient” division by 10)
|$009051||40 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Bonus stars (small 8x8 digits) HexToDec routine. Unknown why Nintendo didn't decide to use $009045 instead, since the bonus stars are 8-bit and other digits are also 8-bit and they use $009045.
Note: this routine alone produces mere 1s and 10s place, so the numbers will be 8x8 instead of 8x16. The code at $008FAF will convert the digits to tile numbers of 8x16 digit graphics.
|$009053||3 bytes||Layer 3||Change to EAEAEA to get rid of the small bonus stars. Use in conjunction with address $00:9068|

Format: xx yy xx yy xx yy [...] $FF
The XXs is the value to store to $15, except that the Select flag (#$20) is instead used to tell if the XY flag (#$40) should be masked away from $16 (if it's set, that bit is stored to $16 unchanged; if clear, that bit is masked away. All other bits are stored to $16.)
The YYs is how long to keep that value there. Setting an XX to $FF ends it.

The entries are as follows:
- $51CB: unused
- $51E8: file select menu
- $5208: player select menu
- $51C4: unused
- $51E5: file erase menu
|$009E7E||4 bytes||Misc.||Table of four bitwise values ($01,$02,$04,$08) indexed by $1B92 and used in the cursor draw routine to determine on which row to actually draw it.|
|$009E82||94 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Routine that draws the cursor on the screen for different menus (file select, player select, file erase).
It uses $1B92 to determine on which row to draw it, and $1B91 to skip drawing it every so often to create the blinking effect.
$009EBA ($FC) holds the tile that's drawn in the rows that aren't supposed to show the cursor. $009EBB ($38) holds its YXPCCCTT properties.
$009EC1 ($2E) holds the cursor tile number. $009EC2 ($3D) holds its YXPCCCTT properties.
|$009EE0||16 bytes||Overworld||Initial level flags. This table is made of a pair of bytes where the first byte contains the translevel number and the second byte the overworld level settings. In an LM-modified ROM, this table is unused, with the initial flag data instead being loaded from a table at $05DDA0 that just contains one byte per translevel.|
|$009EF0||22 bytes||Overworld||Initial overworld position data for Mario and Luigi, corresponding to addresses $1F11 through $1F26. The values are copied there on creation of a new save file.|
|$009F06||35 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Routine to initialize RAM for a new save file. This first clears the SRAM buffer at $7E1F49, then loads into it the initial level flags (using the table at $009EE0) and initial overworld positions for both players (using the table at $009EF0).|
|$009F2A||1 byte||Misc.||Speed of Fade-ins and Fade-outs.|
|$009F2F||1 byte||Overworld border||Change from 01 to 0F to stop fadeout on entering level, new area, and back to submap. (Use with $00:9F59)|
|$009F37||81 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Fading/mosaic routine.
Change $009F59 from D0 to 90 to eliminate all fadeouts. (use in conjunction with $009F2F). Mod note: I've heard that this one is buggy. Use on your own risk.
$009F67 controls which layers are affected by the mosaic effect.
The numbers present the layer numbers to add mosaic on. So 1 = Layer 1, 2 = Layer 2, etc.
|$009F88||48 bytes||Layer 3||Layer 3 settings. The table is indexed by 3t + i, where t is the tileset number and i is the Layer 3 image setting (00 = variable tide, 01 = low tide, 02 = tileset-specific image). It is used by the routine at $009FB8. The actual format seems to be:
01 = variable-height tide
02 = fixed-height tide
80 = Layer 3 smashers/cage
81 = slow-auto-scrolling background (except in tilesets 1 and 3, where it will be a background that scrolls at half the rate Layer 1 does)
C0 = same as 80, except without the smasher palette
|$009FB8||141 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||The main Layer 3 handling routine in levels.
- $009FDA: Starting Y position of the rising/lowering tide.
- $009FDF: Y position of the fixed-height tide.
- $009FF3: One of two tilesets for which the tileset-specific Layer 3 background will not auto-scroll. The other is at $009FF7.
- $009FF7: One of two tilesets for which the tileset-specific Layer 3 background will not auto-scroll. The other is at $009FF3.
- $00A00A: Pointer to the layer 3 crusher palette.
|$00A045||38 bytes||Layer 3||The routine that sets the interaction of the Layer 3 tide tiles.
Both $00A04E and $00A04F are the low byte of the Map16 tile that the tides act like; nothing is stored to the high byte, so this is always on page 0.
|$00A06B||14 bytes||Coordinate||16-bit X-coordinates for each of the seven submaps. The main map has values of 0, and is overridden elsewhere.|
|$00A079||14 bytes||Coordinate||16-bit Y-coordinates for each of the seven submaps. The main map has values of 0, and is overridden elsewhere.|
|$00A09C||1 byte||Timer||Timer to disable skipping the intro message (level C5).
The timer decreases every 4 frame.
|$00A0CC||3 bytes||Misc.||Saves Mario/Luigi's powerups based on which one you are using for the level|
|$00A0F9||1 byte||ASM||Part of the routine that runs after dying with zero lives.
If # of levels beat is zero, then it will take you back to the intro screen, if levels beat is positive, it will take you back to the last place you saved on the OW and bring up the Continue/End dialog.
Change this byte to BRA ($80) to cause it to not send you to the intro screen and bring up the Continue/End dialog if you haven't saved for the first time. (In other words, it will take you back to Yoshi's House on an unedited overworld.)
|$00A148||1 byte||Overworld||GFX file for animated tiles (waterfalls etc) on the overworld.|
|$00A15A||4 bytes||Overworld border||Call to the routine to draw the number of lives on the overworld border.
Change to [80 02] (BRA $02) to disable the amount of lives from being shown in the overworld border. Use with $04A530.
|$00A1E3||1 byte||ASM||Change to 0xEA to keep the game running when a message box is on the screen.|
|$00A21E||1 byte||Controller||Button to press for Pause. (Checks $16)|
|$00A21F||1 byte||ASM||Change from F0 (BEQ) to 80 (BRA) to disable pausing|
|$00A22D||1 byte||Timer||Timer (in frames) that runs to prevent the pause flag from being flipped instantly. Change [3C] to another value to change the time it takes for Mario to pause/unpause.|
|$00A23E||1 byte||Music||Change to 12 and music will continue to play when you pause the game. Changing  to another value will alter the sound effect that occurs when pausing the game.|
|$00A248||1 byte||Debug||DEBUG: Advance frame / Slow motion (00 = enable)|
|$00A256||1 byte||Debug||DEBUG: Slow motion speed|
|$00A25B||47 bytes||Controller||Code to handle leaving the level with Start+Select.
Change $00:A268 to 00 to always allow leaving the level.
Change $00:A273 to 00 to beat the level by doing that, not just leave it. Holding A or B will give the secret exit.
|$00A300||144 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||The routine that handles the graphics that get DMA'd to the first five 16x16 tiles in SP1. It also write the necessary colors to the player's palette (colors 6-F).
$00A30A - Mario/Luigi Palette - Starting Index (Changing this will cause Mario/Luigi to flash when the screen fades out after beating a boss)
$00A320 - Mario/Luigi Palette - Amount of colours * 2
$00A307 - [F0] Changing this to  will skip the player's palette write code, removing palette 8's hardcoded colors.
|$00A390||1 byte||ASM||[C2] Change to 60 to disable all animations in levels. This includes colour 64.
Note: LM will still show the animations.
|$00A3DB||2 bytes||Overworld border||[00 08] For which VRAM address animation data will be broken up into two lines of two tiles instead of a single line of four tiles.|
|$00A400||2 bytes||Overworld border||[00 09] VRAM address of the second line of two animated tiles (value should be $00A3DB + 0x100).|
|$00A41A||1 byte||Palette||[A9] Changing this to 60 will disable the flashing yellow color in levels, but not on the overworld.|
|$00A41B||1 byte||Palette||Palette number to use for the flashing palette. Default value is $64|
|$00A429||12 bytes||Palette||Changing [B9 0C B6 8D 22 21 B9 0D B6 8D 22 21] to [80 0A EA EA EA EA EA EA EA EA EA EA] will disable the flash animation of colour #64. Make sure that the "View Animation" function in Lunar Magic is disabled.
WARNING: Will disable the animated colours on the OW too!
|$00A439||1 byte||Misc.||Change [F0] (BEQ) to  (BRA) to prevent various tiles in SP1 to be overwritten (which meant using ExGFX for them would have no effect). This does not affect tiles 00-09, 10-19 and 7F of SP1.|
|$00A514||1 byte||Palette||The first animated colour on the overworld. (Default: 6D.)|
|$00A51D||1 byte||Palette||The second animated colour on the overworld. (Default: 7D.)|
|$00A757||1 byte||Misc.||How far to offset the players position to the right when exiting a vertical pipe. Values above 0F aren't recommended.|

|$00BA9C||32 bytes||Pointer||The high byte of a series of Map16 data pointers in horizontal levels. The low bytes are at $00BA60, and the bank byte is either $7E or $7F. These are indexed by screen number; each byte in this table and the other corresponds to the start of a particular screen's Map16 data (or chunk of 0x1B0 bytes). These are used in various routines that read or write Map16 data to find where a particular tile is.|
|$00BABC||28 bytes||Pointer||The high byte of a series of Map16 data pointers in vertical levels. The high bytes are at $00BA80, and the bank byte is either $7E or $7F. These are indexed by screen number; each byte in this table and the other corresponds to the start of a particular screen's Map16 data (or chunk of 0x200 bytes, which means that these are all simply multiples of 2 plus #$C8). These are used in various routines that read or write Map16 data to find where a particular tile is.|
|$00BEB0||268 bytes||Subroutine (JSL)||SMW's Map16-tile-generating routine. It uses values of $9C to determine which tile to generate, but these values are hardcoded. (See RAM address $9C.) This is the main part; $00BFBC runs the codes for each tile.|
|$00BFBC||67 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||A subroutine used with $00BEB0; it runs different codes depending on the value of $9C. The pointers for the different values begin at $00BFC9. They go from 01 to 1B, although the actual codes are kind of weird...the pointers vary depending on which Map16 page the tile is on, whether or not item memory should be affected, and if there are special cases (such as the Yoshi coin, which generates two tiles simultaneously).|
|$00C00D||86 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||The subroutine that sets item memory bits. It is called during the subroutine at $00BEB0 for values of $9C that utilize item memory.|
|$00C06B||9 bytes||Misc.||Tiles to generate on Map16 page 0, used for values 01-09 of $9C. Note that the first byte is unused.|
|$00C074||54 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||SMW's subroutine for generating tiles on Map16 page 0. $00C077 is an alternate entry point to this routine; if it is used instead, then the tile generation will not affect item memory.|
|$00C0B2||15 bytes||Misc.||Tiles to generate on Map16 page 1, used for values 0A-17 of $9C.|
|$00C0C1||58 bytes||ASM||A portion of code used in SMW for generating tiles on Map16 page 1. $00C0C4 is an alternate entry point to this routine; if it is used instead, then the tile generation will not affect item memory.|
|$00C0FB||177 bytes||ASM||The portion of code in SMW's Map16-tile-generating routine that changes the actual graphics of the tile. Both $00C074 and $00C0C1 use it (the former jumps to it, and it immediately follows the latter).|
|$00C29E||72 bytes||Misc.||BG Tiles/Palette for Flipped Gate (1)|
|$00C2E6||72 bytes||Misc.||BG Tiles/Palette for Flipped Gate (2)|
|$00C4AF||1 byte||Misc.||If you change this byte from  to , the keyhole will activate the normal exit.|
|$00C526||1 byte||Music||Music played when you have completed the Bonus Game.|
|$00C558||1 byte||Sound effect||POW Finishing Sound Effect.|
|$00C570||1 byte||Misc.||[F0] Change to  to make the item not drop when the player presses Select.|
|$00C576||1 byte||Debug||DEBUG: Powerup select (F0 = enable)|
|$00C599||28 bytes||Pointer||Pointer to Mario's animation routines. ($7E0071)|
|$00C5CE||3 bytes||ASM||[9C 9F 0D] This address disables HDMA effects when player animation #$0B (Freeze) is triggered.
To fix this, change to [EA EA EA] (NOP #3).
|$00C5E8||248 bytes||Misc.||Movement data for all of the castle destruction scenes.
Each data entry consists of two values, the first being the command and the second being the number of frames to keep that command active.
If bit 4 of the command byte is set, question marks will be drawn above Mario (as in Roy/Ludwig's scenes).
If bit 5 is clear, the rest of the byte is read as input data for $15/$16.
If bit 5 is set, then the first four bits are used to run additional commands. x0-x6 will run a variety of small routines, while x7-xF will change Mario's pose.
If #$2D, the P-balloon sound will also be played (for Lemmy's).
Lastly, #$FF marks the end of that scene's data.
|$00C6E0||7 bytes||Misc.||Base indices to the data at $00C5E8 for each of the castle destruction scenes.|
|$00C848||40 bytes||Controller||Table that holds controller input data for the No Yoshi cutscenes, used by the routine at $00C870.
The table is divided in two parts: the first (15 bytes) is used when the player doesn't have a Yoshi, the second (25 bytes) is used when there's Yoshi.
The table is formatted as a sequence of two bytes chunks: the first is used as the input data, which first is ANDed with #$DF and then copied to $15 (so the third highest bit is ignored). When the value equals #$20, #$80 is stored to $18, to force an A press and dismount Yoshi. Instead, when the value has the second highest bit set (#$40), the entrance door starts animating.
The second byte is the number of frames that the current input will be used, before passing on to the next.
$88 is used as an index for the current entry being used, while $89 is used for the timer.
Both parts of the table end with a $FF byte which makes the cutscene end when reached.
|$00C870||165 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Routine that handles No Yoshi cutscenes, run whenever $71 is #$0A.
The routine first sets up sprite data depending on the current cutscene type (ghost house, rope or castle).
Then, it checks if A or B are pressed: in this case, the cutscene ends immediately. Otherwise, the player's controls are disabled, and the player's movement is handled by using the table at $00C848 (follow the link for more details on this). The entrance door animation is handled once a certain value in the table (#$40) is reached. During the entire process the code at $00CD82 is jumped to to handle some of Mario's physics (jump, cape spinning, throwing fireballs, cape flying) and animations.
Once the value #$FF is read from the table (or the player presses A/B), the cutscene ends and the gamemode is changed to #$0F (fade to level).
|$00C92C||2 bytes||Misc.||[F0 3D] Change to [EA EA] to prevent Mario walking after touching goal spheres or the goal tape.|
|$00C9A7||7 bytes||Level number||The level numbers that triggers the seven castle destruction sequences. The first byte is for scene 1, the second is for scene 2, and so on.|

|$00C9BD||1 byte||Music||Goal point fade-out music|
|$00C9FE||3 bytes||ASM||[8D D5 0D] The code itself stores either 01 or 02 to $0DD5. Change to [EA EA EA] to make it possible to set the normal/secret exit info through $0DD5 via LevelASM, sprites, etc. (Note: To activate any exit at all, $0DD5 has to be explicitly set to 01, 02, 03 or 04. Leaving it as 00 will cause no exit to be activated at all, and values 05-FF should not be used.)|
|$00CA0C||1 byte||Level number||Translevel number of the level where defeating a boss will activate the secret exit.|
|$00CA12||2 bytes||Misc.||[C9 31] Changing this to [80 11] will prevent any "boss defeated" scenes from ever being played.
$00CA13 is one of the two level numbers that triggers the credits scene. The other is at $00C9AE.
|$00CA2C||1 byte||Misc.||Set to 00 to disable midway points (they'll still make you big though)|
|$00CA31||13 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||Set the "peace" pose for the player depending on whether they're on Yoshi or not.|
|$00CB0C||1 byte||ASM||Change from '8D' to '0C' to not make HDMA gradients act strangely at the end of the level (goal tape). Of course, you should still avoid using HDMA channel 7 if this is all you change.|
|$00CB12||258 bytes||Misc.||Opening window data.
$00CBA3 - Change 4B to 49 to fix a misplaced tile on the keyhole "iris in" effect.
|$00CC84||1 byte||Debug||DEBUG: Free-roaming mode (F0 = enable)|
|$00CC85||1 byte||Debug||Change this to 00 and you'll activate free roaming mode (just like $00CC84)|
|$00CD4E||4 bytes||ASM||[AD 8F 14 0D] Change to [EA EA EA AD] to enable climbing while holding an item|
|$00CD5F||1 byte||Mario physics||Change from  to  so you don't automatically grab whatever you are climbing (vine, net, etc.) again if you happen to still be holding up/down. Instead after you jump it will let go and let you jump until you press up/down again.|
|$00CDA9||4 bytes||Misc.||Mario riding on Yoshi animations|
|$00CDC5||1 byte||Misc.||Animation frame for Mario crouching on Yoshi|
|$00CDF6||131 bytes||Subroutine (JSR)||L & R scrolling routine.
Change $00CDFC from D0 to 80 to disable L & R scrolling. Or change to [EA EA] to allow scrolling even if the player is holding multiple buttons (works best if $00CE12 is set to 01).
$00CE12 is the number of frames L or R must be held before screen scrolling occurs.
$00CE40 is the screen scroll sound effect.

|$00D034||8 bytes||Mario physics||Cape Collision X (Horizontal) Offsets: Two bytes for right and left, on ground and in air.
The first two sets are for when Mario is on the ground while spinning ($0C,$00- right; $F4,$FF left), and the second two are while he is in the air ($08,$00 - right; $F8,$FF - left)
The first byte in each set determines the position per pixel, the second sets whether it is in front or behind him ($FF is behind, $00 is in front) Use $FF-$80 for the behind byte($FF), and $00-$79 for the in front byte ($00)
This does not effect the image offsets.

The table is split into sets of four 16-bit values each, in the order of $13E1. The values in these sets are ordered as: walking (no X/Y) left, running (X/Y held) left, walking right, running right.
|$00D3AD||16 bytes||Mario physics||Accelerations for Mario when flying.
Consists of 16-bit values in two sets (facing left/right) of two groups (moving left/right) with two values each (no X/Y and X/Y held).
|$00D3BD||24 bytes||Mario physics||Sliding accelerations on slopes in a non-slippery level.
Each value is 16-bit, in the same order as $13E1 (excluding flat ground).

|$00D535||104 bytes||Mario physics||Mario's maximum X speeds on flat ground and on slopes.
The table consists of sets of 8 bytes, in the order of $13E1. Each of these sets then consists of four groups of two bytes each (for max left and max right), in the order: walking, running, running fast, sprinting.
The "running fast" values get used when running faster than #$23 (defined at $00D723) and either on the ground or shot out of a diagonal pipe.
|$00D59D||16 bytes||Mario physics||Mario's maximum X speeds while flying. The first 8 bytes are facing right, the second 8 are facing left.
Each of these sets are split into four groups of two bytes each (for maximum left and right speeds). Only the first two groups are actually used, for flying without X/Y and flying with X/Y respectively.
Also, in case it's not clear, the maximum speeds in the direction opposite of Mario's are from pressing that direction with B to slow down (e.g. <+B when facing right).
|$00D5AD||16 bytes||Mario physics||Mario's maximum X speeds in water.
The first set of 8 bytes is for when Mario isn't carrying an item, while the second set is with one. Each set consists of four groups of two bytes each (for max left and max right), in the order: on ground, swimming, on ground in a tide, swimming in a tide.

|$00D5C9||34 bytes||Mario physics||Mario's minimum X speeds on flat ground and on slopes.
The table is in the order of $13E1. Each entry gets two bytes; the second byte is the actual speed ($7B), while the first is the accumulating fraction bits ($7A).

|$00D63E||1 byte||ASM||Change from 10 to 80 to disable Spin Jump.|
|$00D644||1 byte||Mario physics|| Change to  to allow Mario to spin jump while carrying an item. Because Mario spins so fast, the animation will not be smooth.|
|$00D645||1 byte||ASM||Change this from "1A" to "60" to disable spin jumping. Unlike 0583E (SNES $00:D63E) from "10" to "80", changing this address does not make the "A" button do the regular jump, but it disables spin jumping altogether. This way, you can use the "A" button for something else without it jumping automatically.
Note: Still allows you to spinjump out of the water and dismount Yoshi.
|$00D64A||1 byte||Misc.||Spin Jump Sound, uses bank 1DFC.|
|$00D65E||10 bytes||ASM||Mario jumping routine. (Sound effect + store to Mario Y speed.)
$00D65F is the Sound effect for Mario jumping. $00D661 is the bank for the sound effect. By default it uses $1DFA, but you can make it use $1DFC by changing $00D661 to FC or $1DF9 by changing it to F9.
|$00D66F||1 byte||Mario physics||Change to 80 to disable Cape Flight and Jumping High while dashing. Interestingly enough, changing it to A9 will make Mario do a dash jump with every jump, even at a standstill, and will allow him to gain speed in the air. In addition, doing so will have the effect of causing every Jump performed by Cape Mario to become a Cape Flight.|
|$00D674||1 byte||Mario physics||[D0] Change to 80 to prevent the player from flying with a cape. The player will still be able to float, cape-spin, and jump higher when running but will never "take off".|

|$00D998||1 byte||ASM||Change this from [F0] (BEQ) to  (BRA) so that when the player is carrying an item while swimming, his Y speed won't be affected (the player will sink normally). Also, if you change this to [D0] (BNE), the player will float if carrying nothing and sink if carrying an item.|

The player's position is actually measured in units of “subpixels” -- 1/16th of a pixel for more precise movement, by using fixed-point arithmetic.
It is calculated like this: Take $7B/$7D, divide by 16 (LSR #4), and that is the amount of movement per frame, in pixels the player will be offset by.

Longer animations are possible, but that'd require moving stuff around in $13E0, which hasn't been researched yet.
|$00DC7C||112 bytes||Mario tilemap||Animation rates for both Mario's run animation and his cape animation (as it's flapping in the "wind" from running).

|$00E1D4||70 bytes||Mario tilemap||Miscellaneous table to the cape tiles. The values in the table is indexed by $00E18E which in turn is indexed by $7E13E0.
Stored in this order are the hidden tiles flags (see $7E0078 for more information), 3rd player tile / cape image (equivalent to the tile number on page 9 in Lunar Magic), index to the 3rd tile offset, index to the 8x8 tile image (same formula as with 3rd image) and index to 8x8 tile number.
The data has got no clear separation (that is, multiple tilemap data are interleaved) and indices can only be derived from $00E18E.
Note that if the third tile image is loaded, values 0x00 - 0x03 is used together with $7E13DF × 4 as an index to the tables $00E23A and $00E266 instead.

The slopes in the table by index are:
00 - Gradual
08 - Normal

|$00E632||512 bytes||Misc.||Values stored to $1694 for slopes, to indicate how far the top of the slope is from the top of the actual tile at any given X position; essentially, these values define the actual shape of each slope.
The indices to this table are the same as $00E4B9 (excluding flat ground), except multiplied by #$10 and with the sprite's X position within the tile (from $9A) added to it.
