Are there any easy letters left in homebrew?

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

I'm not confusing any of that - I can concatenate names and labels just fine. What the manual lacks is the syntax for how to use the LOCAL command. What it seems you need to do is declare your label as local by inserting "LOCAL my_label" on a line within the loop/macro/whatever context, but complete...

Works for me Jason, but it does need a proc/endp inside the rept/endm, despite what the doumentation says. It that respect it works the same way as Zeus.

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

So when it comes to PASMO, nobody knows?

Re: Feedback wanted! Best choice for bullet clarity and appearance

I think your biggest problem there is the background, not the bullets. The Blue section is fine as that's done with PAPER, it's a fairly dark colour, and still has a light ink colour over it for the bullets to appear in. The top of the screen is magenta INK on black PAPER, which is a much darker sha...
