Absolute Assembly

Post by DaveUnit(Not logged in) » Thu Dec 01, 2005 9:06 am

Ok, I'm typing this quick, my class is about to end...

I'm having some trouble with absolute assembly freezing whilst in debug...
i know the assembly code's right but it's still freezing...

I just wanna know how many people have had a problem like this if they've ever used this program and what are some measures I should take to get it to run properly?

Dave... (woo... 30 seconds to spare before class ends!)

hokay, lemme elaborate a little cuz I typed that topic in under a minute without putting a lot of thought into it.

When i run absolute assembly, I never make it past the "Detecting machine language code length" part, I've left it on, went to sleep for awhile, woken up and it still hasn't finished that step so Debug seems to be freezing whilst the program is running...

I have a Put routine written in Assembly and it really sucks that Absolute Assembly isn't running properly... I have screwed around with the program too trying to make it work but no luck...

I'd just like to ask anyone that is familiar with this program if they've encountered a problem like this before and if they know how to solve it.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I feel your pain, I've never gotten it to work either.

just write it in a .txt with

Code: Select all


[code, followed by chr$(13)]

n  name.com
rcx [byte length]
And load the file into a string, then proceeding as normal.

Thanks a lot, matt.

Just one question though, what are a, w and q in the code there?
I'm sure could take a guess and use some logic but my brain is fried right now, i got 4 hours of sleep, and recorded 11 songs in a recording studio today, and I still have more crap to do...

Thanks again, I'll finally be able to use my assembly stuff in my programs! :D
