This is a Motorola 68000 assembler course on which the emphasis is on the
Amiga, what else?
It starts at the verrrrry beginning - introducing you to loops and decision
making using amiga assembler. The whole purpose is to create a an "intro".
Look at demo/intro for the basic ideas on Aminet.
NB!!NB!! The hard coded assembler and copper addresses etc (spare me the
techy stuff, please?!?) was supposed to work on pre-AGA machines like the
A500, A600, A2000, A3000 etc etc. It will however still work on AGA
machines. I reccomend using the tool KillAGA on Aminet if you want to test
out your masterpiece. Remeber, that was 1992.
The little "demo" was one we actually used, put together by C00L-G/Silents.
1. An Amiga, duhhh? Whats that? Is it PeeCee compatible...
2. An assembler, like DevPac 3 or Barfly(on Aminet). I have, however
included AsmOne. Which is quite old, but will do the job.
3. Get the Amiga Includes for assembler, it sounds difficult but it should
be on the Amiga developersCD, as well as on numerous Fish CD-ROMs
available from http://www.ninemoons.com. You will have to know your
stuff to be able to work without that includes, if you want to write
system frienldy things.
4. Amiga ROM Kernel Manuals. Not needed, but believe me, verrrrry handy.
You may just need it. If you just want to code demos, then it may not be
I was asked not to spread this, that was 5 years ago. Well, since the Amiga
is in pretty dire straightsI reason there may be people who want to start
asm coding on Amiga, but hopefully Geert won't mind this being put on
Aminet for the sake of the Amiga's future ;-))
The reason I have upped this is coz i have had this for over 5 years now,
yes - since April 1992 when Geert sent me this, at that stage there was no
such thing as e-mail. The Internet was still 2 years away...
1. Geert Coelmont (gctyana.denkart.be - present e-mail address). If you
have any queries rather contact Geert, please take note that his Amiga is
gathering dust, so don't think you will get any luck with him these days.
Without Geerts, you will not have been able to do ANYTHING. Thanx thanx,
The .za in my e-mail address is NOT Zambia or Zaire as many of you think,
it is Zuid-Afrika!!! South Africa, hard to believe but the Internet is old
news here, so are telephones fax machines, cellphones, satellite T.V and
houses made of stone with tarred roads. There is(hard to believe) some
civilized life in Afrika. Yea thats true! 4 airlines fly in total *25*
flights weekly to the U.K, and you can catch DAILY flights from Miami, Los
Angeles and New York to our wonderful country.
Sorry for the above geography lessons but I dunno what you think, you know
we have Amigas here so then it MUST be a civilized place !!!
Please xcuse my English, I am actually Afrikaans! :-)))
