Pikmin boss parameters

To do: Finish researching Global Parameters.

To do: Create proper Local Parameter Tables.

THIS PAGE IS A MASSIVE, MASSIVE WORK IN PROGRESS. Not only is the formatting incomplete, but the research I have done is minimal so far.

Pikmin 1 stores its extremely lightly documented parameters for bosses in root\dataDir\archives\bosses.arc. In this ARC file is the entirety of the root\dataDir\bosses directory. Reference the files here for simplicity.

In the final release, boss parameters are read from excerpts of ..\archives\bosses.arc. In the Windows x86 Debugger, boss parameters are read from ..\bosses\*\parms.bin files.

Boss parameters in Pikmin 1 are fairly similar to those in Pikmin 2. Both have identical sXX / sXXX parameters, the bXX, cXX, dXX, and pXX parameters in Pikmin 1 are likely analogues to the fpXX parameters in Pikmin 2, and the same goes for the iXX parameters in Pikmin 1 and the ipXX parameters in Pikmin 2.

Both parameter systems follow a global/local parameter system. In the case of the Pikmin 1 parameters, there are three sections, each terminated with 0xFFFFFFFF.

Section 1) Contains the "global global" parameters. These parameters are all over the engine. Olimar also uses these parameters. They are the sXX parameters.

Section 2) Contains the global parameters. These parameters are shared among every boss, except for i10. They are the bXX, cXX, dXX, pXX, and iXX parameters.

Section 3) Contains the local parameters. These parameters are different for every boss, include lots of different labels, and are yet to be explored. Not every boss has this section

All values stored in the four bytes following a parameter label are I-EEE 754 Floating Point Numbers (32-bit floats). I currently have a theory that iXX are, in fact, integers, though have done no testing to back this up.

The best way to modify boss parameters currently is through the Windows x86 Debugger, though it is possible to modify them for the final game as well. I have done so, and you can watch it here.

Global Parameters[edit]

Note: Some i** parameters are actually very small values that round to 0.0
