Re: Mac toolchain

As a mac user it feels like we get the short end of the stick when it comes to emulators and retro tools, so it's great to see there are some solutions out there. Thanks for sharing your blog Rob! My own solution for the loader was to run a little Ruby script to merge a preprepared BASIC loader with...

Re: GrimeZ80 assembly errors

Okay, it works as you say after adding the "-gbz80". Thanks Keith!

As for the "BuildGBC", yes I was uncommenting that, as it says to do at the top of GrimeZ80.asm :)

GrimeZ80 assembly errors

I first used the code from github, but then also tried the "UpdatedSource" code found in the archive from your download page. Buil...

Re: New kid on the TZX block

"Whatever way you enjoy", because keeping up motivation is critical Agreed. When I say I disassembled Jetpac I mean more than just taking the machine code and producing opcodes. It's the annotations (labels, variables, etc.) and the comments explaining the functionality that I consider to be the re...

Re: New kid on the TZX block

Do you think you've learned more/faster by starting with other peoples code? or is it just that's the way you prefer to learn? Hmm, probably not :-) I suppose it's easier because the scope of the project is well defined, and something like porting ASM->C is quite binary -- as opposed to developing ...

New kid on the TZX block

Hi, my name is Michael. I started out on the ZX81 and ZX Spectrum back in the day, progressing to the Amstrad CPC, then Amiga 500, and 1200. Although I dabbled with BASIC on those machines, I never tried learning assembly. I remember thinking it would be way too hard to learn :/ Once I'd moved on to...
