The game uses objects to store runtime information about sprites and scripts, e.g. size and position of a sprite, or the current script address. Each object has a handle in range 0x1000...0x1F80, in steps of 0x40, allowing for a maximum of 63 objects. Object data is stored in chunks of 0x1000 bytes at various places in RAM. Objects are created by declaration in the Map Object Header or by script command.

Object Data

Offsets must be added to the object handle to get the memory address.

Double Linked List

Objects are organized in a double linked list. The list defines, among other things, the order in which scripts run.
