Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

Day 13: 352 days left.. Today being the 13th day of the project, I figured it was better not to work on code so much and instead streamline the documentation/reference process. :lol: my programs go wrong enough without tempting fate. So project time today will be spent creating flowcharts for all th...

Re: NIRVANA+ Multicolour Tutorials

Got a hunch what was giving you the migraines... :lol: I think you suffer for the art.

Look forward to reading through all the tutorials, so many people start them but few ever really finish. So its nice to find one that has covered so much already.

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

I was referring to the LOCAL directive, not the auto local mode. I've still not seen any way of making it work in context. I never managed to get the LOCAL directive to work either, I spent around 30 mins trying all the variations I could think off and nothing worked - at the time I put it down to ...

Re: Database model ZXDB

Well yea, you have Choose your own adventure books - that didn't require anything to use but the book. It was just a series of choices. But then you had Fighting Fantasy series that required dice and had a random element that affected the game. The Way of the Tiger series, the character could retain...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

To each his own, but I’ve never been partial to multi-source projects. All of mine are single-source (aside from inserting large data files such as fonts, some graphics, etc.). The only place I tend to combine multiple sources is the loader. If you use comments correctly, and your text editor has g...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

As an addition to todays progress report, now the project code is starting to get quite large, and having multiple source files. Even with lots of comments and my wibble in this development log even I am starting to find it difficult to keep track of what such and such subroutine does in the program...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

Day 12: 353 days left.. With the anykey subroutine doing a good job of not crashing the program. It was time to get a little more precise/discerning with the keyboard input. Debugging the fallout from the following code will probably take up a lot of the project time today. But without it there is n...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

That is all kinds of awesome, thanks Seven_FFF now I can start tackling your tutorial soon 8-) Being able to examine the byte code like that is very nice. Is there a manual for zeus? I know there are many examples on the website but I couldn't find a pdf of the manual. I guess there are options for ...

Re: Crap 0.1 first assembly project

I've never been able to get local definitions to work. This is where the documentation is lacking. What's the syntax for using the LOCAL command? If I've got a bit of code I want to repeat between REPT / ENDM markers, and I put a label in it, it throws up an error as the label counts as a redefinit...
