Hej Allihopa! I'm learning to program in assembly language, and since I have a C128 I thought it would be fun to use it in its native mode (the 80-column screen is really nice...). The problem is that most of the assemblers I've found rely on the BASIC editor, which I'm not very fond of. I've tried some C64 assembly using Turbo assembler, and that environment suits me much better. Is there a C128 version of Turbo Assembler (or a similar assembler)? If so, where can I get it? I have found Power Assembler and Merlin 128 on the net, but they are no good to me without the manuals. And I don't want to shell out $20 + $10 shipping to get Power Assembler from Centsible Software. :( Nick Coplin: Are you the one who bid against me for the C128 manual collection on eBay a few weeks ago (I noticed that the other bidder had the signature ncoplin, so I figured it might be you)? :) I want you (and everybody else) to know that I'm thinking of scanning the most interesting parts of the manuals and making them publicly available on my server. The books are: - Commodore 128 Programmer's Reference Guide - Mapping the Commodore 128 - Compute's 128 Programmer's Guide - Your Commodore 128 Is there any information that might be found in the books that the people on this list are particularly interested in? Ruud: I'm thinking of building a VIC-20 RAM expansion following your schematics. However, there's a similar one at http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/documents/projects/memory/vic20/32kB.html that seems a little easier to build (I'm an absolute beginner at this). Does your version have any advantages over Adam Bergström's? Do you know of any on-line shops in Europe that sell memory chips? Jameco sells 32K chips for $3.95, but the shipping charges to Sweden are $10, which I think is a bit steep. Ha de! /Niklas Ramsberg Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
