  1. First book, vol 1, was. really, REALLY, an awesome book. More on the people who made the ST a great computer and not only a nice combination of chips. I cannot wait for the Vol 2, suspense !
  2. If you're not aware, great volume 1, please consider volume 2 https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-atari-st-and-the-creative-people-vol-2
  3. Hum I tried everything, no space, a space, a tab,.... always an error. With a space, in addition, "invalid opcode" sequencer.asm:12: ERROR - invalid opcode sequencer.asm:12: ERROR - syntax error at/before string "jlp"
  4. Hi, I added the --jlp to jzintv, works. but the CFG_VAR "jlp" = 1 doesn't : ERROR - syntax error at/before string "jlp" By the way typo error in the PDF, Quotient and Remainder addresses are swapped, according to the table. Program Example The following example demonstrates converting a number to decimal using the unsigned divide accelerator. This can be useful for displaying scores onscreen, for example. DIVUU.num EQU $9F8A ; Numerator for the divide DIVUU.den EQU $9F8B ; Denominator for the divide DIVUU.quo EQU $9F8F ; Quotient DIVUU.rem EQU $9F8E ; Remainder
  5. Ah ah very interesting !!! Keep posting !
  6. Brookline, MA. Amiga ? Nobody's perfect (kidding)
  7. Thanks dZ, I did not know the BEGIN/RETURN aliases. Yup yup, it fully makes sense. I just miss the good old MOVEM.L instruction I guess this page (http://wiki.intellivision.us/index.php?title=Calling_Conventions) should be the first one to read in the tutorials section
  8. Ok found.... I was using the beta4 and not the last stable dev. Sorry again. And thanks for the tips !
  9. Yes, like that. It clears the screen, but nothing is written. If I remove the CLRSCR, it writes "THIS IS RED."
  10. Ok.. If I save the R5 register into my sub routine, it works now PSHR R5 ; save R5 : return address ... PULR PC Sorry Any idea why after a call to CLRSCR I cannot print anything ?
  11. ok, it was not so dumb after all... So I tried the PCALL and I have the error : Invalid opcode. I added the macro in a file (branch.mac) and added as an include at the end @@loop CALL WAITVBL ; wait for VBlank ; jump to the current main routine PCALL SUBROUT B @@loop ; loop forever EDIT: Ok I have added them to the beginning, and replaced p by r. It assembles but never goes back to the loop. And I tried the "optimized version" @@loop CALL WAITVBL ; wait for VBlank ; jump to the current main routine MVII #@@loop, R5 ; return to @@loop MVI SUBROUT, PC ; call the routine but it never goes back to the loop, SUBROUT contains the address of RED_MAIN: RED_MAIN PROC ; CALL CLRSCR ; commented, creates bugs CALL PRINT.FLS DECLE 7 DECLE $200 + 3*20 + 1 DECLE "THIS IS RED...", 0 JR R5 ;B MAIN.loop ENDP is it due to the CALL PRINT which changes the R5 ?
  12. Hi, I think I'm doing something dumb but... I cannot see it. I have the address of a sub routine in a variable (System Ram location). I can branch on this address using @@loop CALL WAITVBL ; wait for VBlank ; jump to the current main routine MVI SUBROUT, R1 JR R1 B @@loop ; loop forever But in this case the return address is not set in R5 so within my sub routine, JR R5 won't come back to the @@loop So currently my sub routine ends with B @@loop but that's ugly. Is there a way to do something JSR R1 ? Note, as SUBROUT points to different subroutines along the time, I cannot do B @@ASUBROUT. Thanks....
  13. Great ! I never dreamed of meeting Atari ST/Falcon users here in N.E... A first thing to change
  14. Hi, Atari ST and Falcon fan for ages ! Living in Boston... I'll be at the @party (http://atparty-demoscene.net/) in Sommerville in June, that could be a nice place to meet ? Else, with my neighbor we use to play a few kick off II games time to time.
  15. That's a great idea ! And a good usage of my sleepy Xilinx boards... Please post you new designs, I'll take a look !
