In vorticons, these "item bytes" are the save file (this portion of the game's memory gets written to the disk). Lemm 01:17, 14 July 2010 (GMT)

--Indeed they are, should we add that to the page? There's even a direct correlation between the 'value' and where it ends up in the saved game file. (As you'd expect.) --Levellass 02:44, 14 July 2010 (GMT)

--Yes, I think it would be a good idea to rename the topic from "item bytes" into something more general like "game profile" or "game status" or whatever. Then you could have the vorticons save game format at the top of the page and copy the save game format notes page from (There's also a couple of corrections that I should make to those notes) Lemm 03:14, 15 July 2010 (GMT)

--Ok, so what kind of name are we considering for the page here? 'Game stats' sounds good to me. We know roughly both the Galaxy and Vorticons savegame format, so I guess you'd want those in the page too, though I'm not sure they should be at the top of the page, mostly this page will be linked to relating to patches for the tables of values, perhaps the format would be better at the bottom of the page, with a note about how the tables map onto them? --Levellass 04:02, 15 July 2010 (GMT)

--Game stats sounds good, there could be a short intro as you have now. I would say divide the rest of the page in half and put all vorticons stuff at the top and all galaxy stuff at the bottom, and then you can have the save game file description at the bottom of each half.
