I found this weird bug in bB 1.0 after compiling an 8k bank switching program, it assembles with three unresolved symbols:

BS_return

BS_jsr

scoretable

Why is this?  Do I need an older version or a newer one?  Or is it my program?  I don't think it's my program because bank-switching examples don't compile either.

I don't know if your issue has to do with what version of bB you are using.  Bankswitching is supported in this version.  Without seeing the source, my first guess would be that you are missing a line like this:

   set romsize 8k

Alternately, it may be that it was installed incorrectly, and you are missing the appropriate environment variable for bB to find its dependancies,

 

I do recommend that you get the latest RevEng build if bB in any case - it has a ton of enhancements and bugfixes over the 1.0 release:

Here is more info about installation:

This version works!  I originally got the files from bataribasic.com, so yeah, it was my version.

Thanks!
