Re: why use ASM anymore

You still need to understand assembly for reverse engineering. Very important to verify static analysis and dynamic analysis vulnerabilities in a binary.

Re: why use ASM anymore

Because it's a specialist skill and it's valuable to an employer. Basic programmers would be lost reverse engineering anything for example. Even mobile developers seem to lack low level skills these days.

Re: How not to use an Amiga

All it takes is for an Amiga nutcase* to see this and we'll have endless videos of ST machines being trashed. It's an asshole thing to do to working vintage equipment.

*They're not all nutcases obviously!

Yeah. I was able to build it on my mac. There's a binary version in the archive for those that want to play with it. You just need to pull the repo with "git clone https://gitlab.com/AndreasK/AtariX"

It is possible. I never met DML in all the time I went there :) I met him years later. Hi Doug :D I also wrote the intro to the unreleased last issue of PB :)
I eventually released it 30 years later ! It's here https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/ ... /index.htm :)

Yep. Kinning park club. Quite a few people used to kick about there. Some of the guys from Cynix on the ST and Access on the Amiga.

No Iain and Peter? :) Were they at the Barras? I don't recall those names, but my memory is getting as dodgy as the stuff that went on at the Barras. :) I'd never seen that PB disk mag either, strange that I never knew those guys considering the amount of time I spent hanging around at the Barras. ...

sorry for the post, i wasn't thinking straight. anyway, how would i implement a state machine in MSX basic? what commands would i need? I don't know basic. You'd need a function which returns a value and a calling routine above it with a switch statement or a load of ifs. You'd need a global which ...

Re: new game (need loop fix)

I've written games in J2ME, 6502 assembler and C. I used a state machine for each. I had to make a fairly complex game front end navigable backwards and forwards on the GBA. It got unwieldy and I replaced it with a state machine. Much easier.

Re: new game (need loop fix)

The language shouldn't matter. Just focus on the concepts. Writing a game without a state machine will result in a spaghetti mess. I can tell you that from experience :)
