Debug Menu

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Can this be made to work?
To do:
Quote the relevant code/offsets, describe it more, and check if it exists in intermediate versions.

There is code for a debug menu labeled "TENNIS DEBUG MENU" in the main executable. It is stripped as of update v2.3.0 and beyond. Such offsets to list are here:

Retail Demo (US) 00000071007DCF00
Base (US)
Update 1.1.0 (US)
Update 1.1.2 (US)

Unused Particles



A particle effect meant for use on the world map can be found in RomFS\effect\adv\worldmap.nptl. The Kanji reads "smoke".
