Im looking to move the Hearts Counter up a few tiles to make room for a day/night timer but Im not sure how, please advise.
Mockup of what I'm aiming for.



This is part of what im hoping to eventually release as my first romhack.
I really have no idea what im doing beyond basic text hacking and modifying graphics so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
I have checked the ROM Map over at Data Crystal and cant find any info on it there either.

Thanks much, It threw me since I only really know how to id stuff in relation to text, and its nowhere near the inventory text where I thought it would be. :)

PPU target pointers are the one thing that tend to be stored in high-endian format.
