LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is the second of five LEGO Star Wars games. The Nintendo DS release has been panned by critics for its awkward camera control and many glitches.

Unused Map (zzTestMap)

LEGO Star Wars II NDS Unused Map 73.png

There is an address in the game containing an unsigned 1-byte value that keeps track of what map you are currently playing in, and it only changes when your character enters a loading zone. Entering any loading zone while this value is set to 49 (4D for Japan) will send you to an unused map. Searching for the BMD file header BMD0 in the game's memory while the map is loaded reveals that its actual name is zzTestMap. The map contains quite a few random objects, such as a swinging log from the Episode VI level Battle on Endor, some doors (some are stuck open, others are stuck closed), a torch from the Episode V level Escape from Echo Base, a breakable and rebuildable LEGO object, and a LEGO wall that can only be destroyed by bombs. The map's music is just the music that plays on the title screen.

Setting this value to 49 (4D for Japan), then entering any level in Story Mode/Replay Story will cause you and your partner to spawn in as Jango Fett, regardless of whether or not he has been unlocked yet. Upon spawning in the level, holding Up on the D-pad for a brief moment will trigger a loading zone that takes you to the Episode IV level Death Star Escape (map number 1A), and you and your partner will spawn in as Obi-Wan and Tattooine Luke, respectively.

Here are what the addresses are for each version of the game:

USA 1.0 USA 1.1 Europe Japan
0x02102950 0x021019B0 0x02102670 0x02102E08

Unused/Placeholder Strings

Free Play Character Pages

When playing in Free Play, you have access to a menu that lets you play as any character you currently have unlocked. The game uses an address that holds an unsigned 4-byte address that keeps track of what page of the character menu you are currently looking at. By forcing this value beyond its intended limit (D), you are able to scroll to pages E and beyond, which causes the text that gets displayed on each page to display strings from other parts of the game, such as level names, Extra names, and the credits. However, there are three unused/placeholder strings that make repeat appearances as you continue scrolling the menu. These strings are:

  • XXXNOT USED (first appears on 11)
  • PLACEHOLDER STRING (first appears on A2)
  • XXXNot used (first appears on AA)

Codes Menu

In the Codes menu in the Cantina's shop, each of the six slots used for inputting codes has its own address that keeps track of what character the slot is currently displaying. By forcing this value beyond its intended limit (23), you are able to scroll to characters 24 and beyond and display strings used in other parts of the game, as well as unused ones. These unused strings are:

  • XXXNOT USED (first appears on 36)
  • PLACEHOLDER STRING (first appears on 6B)
  • XXXNot used (first appears on 73)
  • XXXDO NOT USE MIX N MATCH (first appears on AB)
  • XXXDO NOT USE Custom 1 (first appears on AC)
  • XXXDO NOT USE Custom 2 (first appears on AD)
  • XXXDO NOT USE Custom 3 (first appears on AE)
  • XXXDO NOT USE MOS EISLEY (first appears on B3)
  • XXXDO NOT USE MOS EISLEY2 (first appears on B4)
  • XXXDO NOT USE SKIFF (first appears on B5)
  • XXXDO NOT USE SKIFF2 (first appears on B6)

Hidden Cheat Codes

Like many LEGO games the game features a cheat menu that allows the player to unlock items instantly or give other benefits. In this game the menu can be found in the shop of the Mos Eiley Cantina. The cheats for unlocking characters always unlocks their parts for the character editor too.

Out of Bounds Objects

Using a model ripper tool, we can finally look at all the objects that are floating out of bounds in every single level of the game.

Griptonite Games Car Graphic

LEGO Star Wars II NDS Griptonite Games Car.png

There is an address in the game containing an unsigned 1-byte value that mainly seems to keep track of which screen the bottom screen will display next. By default, this value is set to 0, but it changes when certain events occur, such as pausing the game (the value will change to 35), entering another area (1E), and activating the shop in the Cantina (31). However, for whatever reason, setting this value to 38 will cause the bottom screen to display an image of a dark-gray car whose driver's side door has the Griptonite Games logo on it. Above the car, a logo in gray text saying the word "focus" appears.

Here are what the addresses are for each version of the game:

USA 1.0 USA 1.1 Europe Japan
0x02102968 0x021019C8 0x02102688 0x02102E20
