So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Unused Maps


Map archive map05001.lzs contains data for a test map. As the map is still referenced in the dungeon data file (dungeon.dat inside START.dat), where it is named "テストマップ" (or "test map"), it might still be possible to access it in-game.

Hidden Text

Cacti speak Japanese.
...But what does it mean?
This game has text or audio that needs to be translated. If you are fluent with this language, please read our translation guidelines and then submit a translation!
To do:
More details; check if other spritesheets have different notes (most have the same, but many to check!); etc...

Many of the high-resolution character spritesheets contained within various files inside ANM_HI.dat have unused, invisible notes written on them. These can be made visible by modifying the last color in the palette.

Unused Text

To do:
Crappy InProgramTxt.dat dump

The file InProgramTxt.dat inside START.dat contains various strings that indicate the existence of a debug menu, similar to the one in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.

Unused Items

To do:
Related to this?

The item data file mitem.dat in START.dat contains two items, which are presumably unused as their names and descriptions are not translated in the English version.

Unused Skills

magic.dat in START.dat contains three untranslated entries for skills.

Disgaea 3 Leftovers

To do:
Likely a lot of other stuff, too.

Judging from various leftovers from Disgaea 3, it appears that Disgaea 4 was directly derived from it - even the opening animation's file is still called dis3_0.dat.

Character Portraits

Presumably a leftover is the archive BU.dat, which contains Disgaea 3's static character portraits, while this game's animated ones are stored in various files inside ANM_HI.dat.

UI Graphics

Various files inside START.dat are apparently also leftovers, mainly textures used for character status displays.
