Found the CP/M cross compiler cousin of Atari Macro Assembler (SORCIM ACT65) :)

Recommended Posts

This video shows the process of doing #gamedev using other, larger systems to develop software for the #Atari 2600 and 5200 game consoles using a cross assembler. This example contrasts a cross assembler from Sorcim running on #Atari8bit and #S100 hardware. Enjoy. #retrocomputing #retrogaming

AMAC was my go-to when I was writing games and utilities in the 80s. I've moved all that source over to ca65 since, but do still have fond (ha!) memories of it.


When I moved the code over to ca65, I first started by typing in the hard copy and getting it to assemble with AMAC in emulation. Here is a shot from the first one I did. Not bad, I'd only had a handful of typos!


Good find @tschak909!
