Re: Register Addressing Modes

LD (ADDR),A/LD A,(ADDR) should be in "Extended Addressing" according to this nomenclature. I'd say the term "Memory Indirect" is more descriptive, though.

Re: Bintracker - New Beeper Music Editor

Thanks, you guys! :) Haha cheers Chris, without looking at Beepola's source code I arrived at pretty much the same conclusion, just haven't implemented it yet. Of course the plug-in system makes things a little more complicated. The idea is that each engine configuration should provide a list of pos...

Re: Short beeper routines in assembly

Bintracker - New Beeper Music Editor

Bintracker is the latest addition to the family of beeper music editors. It's a PC-based tool, like Beepola and 1tracker. From Beepola, it inherits the more conventional and well-known pattern/sequence workflow, as opposed to 1trackers more experimental "endless pattern" approach. From 1tracker, it...
