  1. curpos is a label, can you increment a label?
  2. I started out with the Philips G7000 (Philips Videopac G7000), also known as the Magnavox Odyssey 2. I think we had 5 or 6 game cartridges for it and my parents had to connect it to the family TV whenever we were allowed to play on it. Later we got the Amstrad CPC464 which is actually my favorite because it is the first computer that I was able to write programs on. It had the monochrome green monitor and built-in tape drive. I spent many hours typing in basic programs, debugging and testing them out, but as I could not read english and had no one to help, I never learned how to save my programs to tape. In the end, the CPC646 was swapped out for a C64 as that is what all the other kids had and for some reason the C64 games were not working on the CPC464 I continued doing basic programs on the C64 and I actually learned to save my programs to tape, and even floppy.
  3. You could also have a look at how the 74ls74 is built. It may very well be a better design. https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/sn74ls74a.pdf The 74ls74 seems to be edge triggered without using the strange NOT-NOT-NOT-AND circuit I have above.
  4. In theory, it should work. I have just tested in Logisim as well, both the buil-in d-latch and one made from NAND gates seems to be able to divide the clock signal. As StephenHorn says, ensure that your chip(s) can handle the signal they receive. (dig in to the datasheets).
  5. What kind of programs are you thinking of? I am in need of new programming ideas
  6. I would say that LSR is the more correct of the two. Depending on your assembler, both should work without issues, but if you look at the reference for the CPUs, LSR command only takes up 1 byte of memory where LSR ZP and LSR Absolute take up 2 and 3 bytes respectively. To me that indicates, that that the LSR A is just to make the commands look alike.
  7. ROM will not be open...
  8. Cool, do you have a code example?
  9. I agree. Now that some space has been freed, I will look into getting the byte_to_hex_ascii function back into the BASIC rom and I will tidy up the HEX$ and BIN$ functions as I had to jump through quite a lot of hoops to make the fit before.
  10. I believe I tried that without luck... ... Just tried it again, still no luck. in monitor.s: .export byte_to_hex_ascii in x16additions.s: .import byte_to_hex_ascii ... Still it does not recognize the name.
  11. Now that space is freed in the BASIC ROM page, I think it will actually be possible have the functions handle word values as well. Do you think it would be sufficient that HEX$ outputs a 4 byte string if the value is larger than 255 otherwise a 2 byte string? Or should it be something that you specify when calling i.e. something like HEX$(42, 1) returns 2A and HEX$(42, 2) returns 002A
  12. I don't think you can create Integer variables. They will always be floating point or strings. Your example would be String variable names are followd by a dollar sign. Of course you can not do counting on strings
  13. I managed to free up some space in the BASIC ROM page. https://github.com/JimmyDansbo/x16-rom/commit/a0470c136811ef56c6f3d5131bc9ffa1d254f9b6 @desertfish do you think we should try and go for handling word values as well as byte values?
  14. Yeah, it is a bit strange. You can read more about acme's handling of text (read conversion tables) here: https://sourceforge.net/p/acme-crossass/code-0/HEAD/tree/trunk/docs/AllPOs.txt#l165
