This BIN file with the ITEM identifier stores the item probability of different item sets uniquely for human or AI players at a specific distance to the lead racer, and the distances themselves.

It should be noted that the game applies several additional hardcoded rules on top of the probabilities, like a (powerful) item not appearing in the first seconds after the race start or after it has been collected before. If it cannot find a valid item, the driver collects a Coin as a fallback value.

Sections

The file is organized into the following sections which describe the item sets or distances available for a specific game mode:

  • ITST - Title Screen Race
  • ITS2 - Race
  • ITDS - Race Distances
  • ITS3 - Title Screen Battle
  • ITS4 - Battle
  • ITRT - Battle Distances (unclear meaning)

Item Sets

For each game mode, different item sets exist. Several item sets are unused or cannot be used directly. The accessible ones are split into a set used for human-controlled drivers and a set for AI drivers, possibly to prevent AI players from getting specific items (though they can handle all "correctly").

Race

Each Race game mode (ITST and ITS2) contains item sets in the following order:

  • Grand Prix
  • Grand Prix (AI driver)
