Develop Atari 2600 game – Part 2: Hello World (of sorts)

Ok the next stage is to get some actual code running.

I found a code sample here.

created a local file asmtest.asm

Because I created a new terminal session I need to run these two commands again.

export bB=~/Atari2600/bB
export PATH=$PATH:$bB

I used this command to compile.

Joes-MBP:samples arkleyjoe$ dasm.Darwin.x86 asmtest.asm -I"$bB/includes" -f3 -lasmtest.list.txt -v5 -sasmtest.symbol.txt -oasmtest.bin

Open Stella, select asmtest.bin



Next up is to try some code I have actually written.
