Random Number Generator (RNG)

Mechanics

RNG Calculation

You can calculate the next RNG state with the following lua script.
function getNextRNG(lowRNG, upRNG)
 local temp = upRNG + ((2^0x2 * upRNG) % 2^0x10)
 lowRNG = lowRNG * 2 + math.floor(temp / 2^0x10) + upRNG + math.floor((lowRNG * 2 + math.floor(temp / 2^0x10)) / 2^0x10)
 return lowRNG % 0x10000, temp % 0x10000 -- return RNG L, RNG U
end

RNG Addresses

Address Type Description
0x2063760 16-bit RNG Lower 2 bytes
0x2063762 16-bit RNG Upper 2 bytes

Passed Value

A 16-bit value is passed to the function in register 0. The function then returns a value between 0 (inclusive) and the passed value (exclusive).
r0 = (r0 * lowRNG) >> 0x10	// lowRNG is after the calculation for the next state

Battle Uses

Item Drop Test

Return address (r14): 0x020BB710
Passed Value: 0x2710 (10,000)

The item's drop rate is multiplied by the drop rate multiplier and stored in register 8 during the RNG execution. If the returned value is less than the value in register 8, the test is passed and the item is dropped. Else, the drop test is considered failed and continues to the next item in the table.

Battle Mechanics

Light Puck (Puck)

Travel Time

The Puck begins moving to the next partner two frames after the character holding the Puck (either character if the Puck is not in play) damages an enemy with a combo finisher. The value is set, when the Puck begins moving, to the base value of 89 and is reduced by 1 every frame until 0. Upon turning 0 from traveling, the value becomes 1 the next frame and the pass is considered complete. The value becomes 0 afterwards. Attempting to change this value directly to 0 will cause the game to reset the value to the base value.

This value is signed. All negative values are treated like 1 and will turn to 0 on the next frame to complete the pass normally.

Hold Time

The Puck can only be held for a limited amount of time before disappearing from play. The value is reset, when passing the Puck, to the base value of 930 and reduced by 30 for every pass. This includes the pass the puck is created so maximum base value without clothes is 900. The value is reduced by 1 every frame until 0.

This value is signed. All negative values are treated like 1 and will turn to 0 on the next frame for the Puck to disappear from play normally.

This value is used the frame before a combo finisher by the character holding the Puck deals damage to determine the increase/decrease of the Puck's Damage Multiplier.

Value/Max Value Multiplier Change
98% +50 (+x0.5)
92% +20 (+x0.2)
70% +10 (+x0.1)
0% -100 (-x1.0)

Damage Multiplier

The Puck multiplies the damage dealt by a combo finisher if the character is currently holding it. The value is reset, when the Puck is created by the first pass, to the base value of 200. The value is then increased or decreased, when passing the Puck, based on the Puck Hold Time value. The value is a percentage so the value must be divided by 100 to get the true multiplier.

The minimum value is 200 (x2) and maximum is 500 (x5). Any values beyond this range will be set to the minimum (if under) or the maximum (if over). This value is signed and all negative values will be set to 200.

The Damage Multiplier applied to damage is after the increase or decrease. This must be noted because the Damage Multiplier in RAM is updated after the affected damage is dealt.

Useful Puck Addresses

All Puck addresses are stored in the Battle GUI Linked List except the following:
Address Type Description
0x23918CD 8-bit Current Puck Pass Count

Hit Points

A single address contains the current amount of Hit Points despite the two characters seeming to have their own Hit Point bars. The game only uses the current Hit Points. The damage received by the characters is only for graphical purposes and specific clothing abilities.

HP Related Addresses

Address Type Description
0x23918B0 16-bit Current HP
0x23918B2 16-bit Maximum HP
0x23918B4 16-bit Damage Received on Top Screen
0x23918B6 16-bit Damage Received on Bottom Screen

Item Drop

Drop Rate Multiplier (for Battles)

The Drop Rate Multiplier can be temporarily multiplied by the amount of chained battles. This value is moved to a new address after the chain is finalized for use in battle.

Item Drop Table

Each enemy has an item drop table containing one item and drop rate for each difficulty. Starting at the item for the current difficulty, a drop test is executed. If the test is successful, the item is dropped. If the test is unsuccessful, the game moves down a difficulty and tries again. If the game reaches the end of the enemy's drop table without dropping an item, no item is dropped.

Battle Field Object/GUI Linked Lists

Linked Lists

All GUI elements and Field Objects are stored within Linked Lists during battles.
Known heads and tails of these linked lists are listed below:
