The main file has 1127 lines, implying 1126 records (plus the header). As in all .2da files, null is represented as '****'.

Meaning of the columns seems to be as follows

CategoryEdit

The category of this article. Values which occur in the official file (there's probably a separate .2da defining these) are:

  1. aether
  2. alchemy
  3. bestiary
  4. Bestiary
  5. character
  6. Character
  7. Gameplay
  8. Girlfriend
  9. Hidden
  10. Hint
  11. hydragenum
  12. Info
  13. Picture
  14. Place
  15. Plot
  16. quebrith
  17. rebis
  18. recipe
  19. recipe_bomb
  20. recipe_oil
  21. tutorial
  22. Tutorial
  23. unique
  24. vermilion
  25. Visited
  26. vitriol

Note that several appear in both all-lowers and initial-cap, implying the value probably isn't case sensitive.

PictureEdit

Filenames of .dds (Microsoft DirectDraw Surface) files which are stored in the _textures00 directory within the BIF archive.

EntryIdEdit

A distinct token. I assume this is the file which defines these tokens. I assume these tokens are keys into i18n lookup files, but if so those files are not stored in the _2da00 directory. There are 347 distinct values in this column, of which 115 are not unique. 'jp_g_book' occurs most frequently with 61 occurrences. 392 records have null in this column.

CategoryOverrideEdit

There two blank rows and 1088 null rows in this column. There are only five actual values, as follows:

  • 1 Info
  • 3 Hidden
  • 4 Place
  • 12 boss
  • 16 character

BigPictureEdit

Values are null or '1'. All the records which have '1' in this column also have a value in the 'Picture' column, so I assume that '1' in this column means 'the picture is a big picture'.

SexPictureEdit

There are 24 distinct values in this column, which appear to refer to sex card images. All are unique except 'sp_sex_hooker2' which occurs twice. All appear to be names of .DDS files occurring in the _localized00 subdirectory.

AlchemyRecipeEdit

There are 50 distinct values in this column, all referring to potions or oils.
