New area animation bit: PST 0x2000

Recommended Posts

It turns out 0x2000 was already used by PST, before EEs added it and two more to the list. They're only set in animations in two of the Fortress of Regrets areas, so they're easy to overlook if you aren't doing a systematic search. I've reconfirmed other games don't use it.

A: AR1201 Anim name: A1201G1R
   Anim flags: 9625 Only high bits: 8192
A: AR1201 Anim name: A1201G3R

What it actually does is still an open question, but it may complicate the meaning of the existing bits. For a picture and investigation details:

Does anyone perchance know something about it?

It's not clear what it does at all, since it was unrelated to the first bug. Could be an artifact (removed functionality), since we didn't notice any visual effect from the bit.

The way a few others work in pst is better understood though, some of which NI already handled:
