This is the Sonic Community Hacking Guide for the Mega Drive version of Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island.

Level headers

Level headers are 42 bytes each. They contain data needed to load their layout, objects, etc. Below is the format for a level header. N/A means that we yet don't know its functionality, however looking at their values it seems like them all are pointers. If a question mark (?) is in the description, then the content isn't confirmed yet. All palettes pointers are indices from some array.
