Sorry if this is the wrong forum,
I'm very excited to be joining this community. I've been a long-time Atari fan and would love to learn more about the system and begin programming for it. I've read that there are two main ways of programming for the Atari 2600. Either by Batari Basic or through the DASM assembler. My question boils down to this: What is the most complete way to learn to program a game for the 2600?
Which way is best supported, and has the most complete documentation? I'm willing to learn either way, I just want to know which method will give me the most control, most support from the community, and best documentation in case I get stuck or have a quirky error.
I've done lots of programming before so I'm familiar with programming concepts so that's not a worry, I'm just doing this in my spare time between projects and thought this would be a good way to spend some time.
Thanks for reading!
