Assembly source code for 5 programs by Ed Fries

Recommended Posts

Ed Fries has graciously sent me the source code for 5 assembly language programs, and released the code under an open source license. 

 

Sea Chase, Anteater, and Princess and Frog were all published by Romox:

https://github.com/savetz/edfries-anteater
https://github.com/savetz/edfries-frog

 

Nitro was to be published by Romox but the company went out of business before Ed could finish it. Who can get it working?

"I made a chess program for fun at one point." I don't know if he finished it. Who can get it working?

Bonus from Ed: "I attached some that say basic. I have no idea what you will find there. Maybe some of my stuff mixed with other people’s stuff typed in from magazines, etc. I hope someone finds it fun to look through this stuff."

 

Let me know what you find on these!

I ported the chess code to XASM and patched calls to OSB EOUTCH to get it working on XL/XE machines. It takes a while to draw the first move:

edfries-chess-xasm.xex

The code includes a flag you can set to view the moves it is considering which is interesting to watch:

edfries-chess-xasm-view.xex

Source for the port is here:
