Re: Source code for old BBC Micro games

Hi Ken,

Yes, unfortunately I am not able to program in 6502 assembler code, and the learning curve is pretty steep! I don't suppose there are any decent online resources you're aware of that explain how to? Even something that explained how to read it would be a good start...

Re: Source code for old BBC Micro games

Hi David, Ah yes, that brings me full circle back to my query a few weeks ago regarding old program listings using assembly code that wouldn't run under BB4W! I guess most of the games back then were written in assembly code rather than BBC BASIC. Thank you for the pointer, though, I will definitely...

Thanks again.

1983 program listing

Hi, I've been attempting to run an old 1983 BBC Micro User program taken from a listing in said magazine. I've typed it all in, but it contains a PROC that jumps into assembly code (which I freely confess I don't understand). The problem I have is that the program is throwing up syntax errors when i...
