I'm glad many of these errors are being caught. It means there will be less mistakes when I start reading through it (soon). :D So thank you for those who are/have found typos and errors. :)

Quote from: Lesson 11 Page 8
Let’s work on the routine to display the menu. I’ll give you the
code line by line, and explain it on the way. Create a new text file called
“ASMGorillasStartProgram.asm”, and include this in
“ASMGorillasMain.asm.”
Quote from: Lesson 13 Page 8
Finally, go to “ASMGorillasMenus.asm” and replace the top four
lines with the following line:

I think the file created in lesson 11 was supposed to be named "ASMGorillasMenus.asm".  ???

EDIT:
Wait, it's no wonder you're finding all these typos.  You're looking at the old lessons, and I know that because I canceled ASM Gorillas.

 O.O  :o
Oh, I didn't see that. 
Can you edit your first post on your lesson thread?  I hope no one else makes the same mistake. :P

Start on lesson 11.

Hopefully you now have all the files you need, including the right ti83plus.inc ;)

Ok.  Thank you, Hot_Dog for directing me to the correct tutorials.  :)
I edited all of my old posts with the correct lessons.  

The last three errors are no longer in your lessons because you do not have those lessons anymore. :P

I just want to thank you because your tutorials are really teaching me ASM.  :D

I'm glad to hear that, and you're welcome!

So, what's your opinion on lesson #5?  That's the one I was a little bit skeptical about.  Did it help a lot, did you not understand it, perhaps a neutral opinion?

I understood lesson 5.  I guess that is a neutral opinion.  

Quote from:  Lesson 11 Page 9
.option BM_SHD = 2
.option bm_min_w = 8
#include “ti83plus.inc”
.org $9D93
.db t2ByteTok, tAsmCmp

should be:
Code: [Select]
.option BM_SHD = 2
.option bm_min_w = 96
#include “ti83plus.inc”
.org $9D93
.db t2ByteTok, tAsmCmp

Also:
Quote from: Lesson 13 Page 12
LD HL, Divide_By_4_23
LD DE, OP2 ;Division requires two numbers, so OP2 holds our second one.
LD BC, 9
LDIRB_CALL _FPDiv ;Multiply 1.5 by 3
ld hl, 0 ;Where we want to display the result on the screen
ld (penCol), hl
ld a, 11 ;Displays 10 digits
B_CALL _DispOP1A
B_CALL _getKey



Thanks to lesson 11, I can do this :P:
