It's odd that he'd still be using a Kim-1 in '85, they were around in the mid-70s and he probably could have worked faster if he'd used an Apple II or any of the early 80s micros.

In '85 I was using a 6502 assembler but I wasn't forced to convert opcodes into hex. Although I do still remember some of them like A9 is LDA# immediate (literal value), 8d is STA absolute addr

By far the biggest kick I got out of it was exploiting the 6502 bugs.

Ahh.. happy days.

That's what machines are for.

Got a problem?
