Editor/Assembler "Part B" diskette variants?

Recommended Posts

The Editor/Assembler manual says the "Part B" diskette contains "a game or application program that can be used as an example."

The manual uses Tombstone City as an example, and that's the only one I've ever seen. Were others actually distributed?

Perhaps this was written prior to the decision to include the game Tombstone City as the one and only example program? The E/A manual has many curious errors and/or misleading entries. Ironically, it reads like an Assembly of many individual offerings which received very little Editing.

It is also possible that they considered this option at about the same time they were releasing Tombstonce City, TI Invaders, and Munchman on disk--and then settled on Tombstone City as the only one they were truly willing to release in source code form.

I recall reading somewhere that Tombstone City was the only TI-authored game actually developed on 99/4a hardware (versus 990 minis purpose built for 99/4a development). So perhaps that makes it the best candidate for demonstrating assembler development using the E/A package running on 99/4a hardware.
