8bit Workshop!



I have just been told about the website 8bitworkshop.com! It's amazing!


I feel like writing a kernel for an Atari 2600 game is a lot easier than I originally thought.


Everything seems so cryptic when you first get into 2600 programming. As soon as you grasp that everything is about drawing the screen line by line, it becomes a little clearer.


Looking at other people's code is a must. I don't think I would have learned as much as I have without reading the code of past masters.

Yes! One of my favorite site! You can press the clock icon to get a tally how much cycle you used between WSYNC, useful for drawing or processing something when you're in the screen drawing section. And good to debug to see if you went over 76 cycle on a line.
