Wait!? DJ, you don't know ASM!?!? I've only been at it 2 weeks and I have almost completely remade Hexpipc (again, but this time it's only 500 bytes). Seriously though, I thought you (being the founder of this forum) would know ASM.
ASM is a totally different matter than BASIC. I coded BASIC for 9 years and Axe for 6 months. I attempted ASM 3 times, so far, with ASM in 28 days, to no avail. The way the tutorial is written is just not for me. I am planning a 4th attempt with Hot Dog's tutorials, though, now that I learned some memory stuff with Axe.

Also being founder of a forum doesn't mean I automatically know every language. Omnimaga started solely as a TI-BASIC group, after all. Axe just arrived later, and many people switched. Then came Hot Dog's tutorials, which made it easier for people to learn ASM. I think most ticalc.org staff barely programmed at all.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Okay. I just always got the impression that you knew ASM. By the way, where can I find Hot Dog's tutorials (link please)? As a side question, what programming languages do you know (calc or otherwise)?

Yeah I actually started TI-BASIC around 2001 and stuck with it until 2009 then moved to Axe. I just never could understand ASM. Hopefully maybe Hot Dog's tutorials will change that, though.

Here are his tutorials, by the way: http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=594

As for myself, I know TI-BASIC for the TI-81 and 83+ (I did a bit for other calcs but not much) and Axe language. I did VB6 in 2002-03 but I pretty much forgot the few things I learned. That's pretty much it. I was active a lot in BASIC programming around 2001-05 then I coded on and off afterward, while running Omnimaga.

Interesting. I do GNU C++, Java, BASIC, Axe, GML, and some ASM.
