Hello everyone, my name is Iuri Nery, and a few days ago I started reading some tutorials at RandomTerrain to learn more about Atari programming, and so far I’m finding everything fascinating. I’m right now at number #16 of Andrew Davie’s tutorial (Atari 2600 Programming for Newbies). I’m learning a lot from it, and to learn faster, I needed to built something to help me testing the sample projects, that’s why I made this IDE.
AtariX is a very simple IDE, but has a couple of features that can help novice users to get into Assembly programming:
· Save/Load assembly files (.asm/.s);
· Build binary files by pressing the “Export” button;
· Test your games with 1 click;
· Colored syntax for comments, assembly instructions, numbers, binary numbers and also for the labels from “vcs.h” (like COLUPF);
· “vcs.h” and “macro.h” (unmodified);
· DASM Assembler;
· z26 Emulator;
· AtariX executable;
How to use:
1. Open the assembly file you want to test;
2. Put all the included files in the “include” folder;
3. Click on the “Play” button (you can also press F5);

This is not an advanced IDE or anything like that, just wanted to share it with you guys, I hope it can help someone.
ps: I’m not an experienced programmer, so any tips are apreciated, also I don’t know if this is the correct session to post this kind of stuff.
