Oh, okay.  Good luck with the move, and I can't wait for lesson 14! :D

Lesson 14 is up.  I'll have 13 up when I can, but in the meantime, I'm working on 16 next.

*Bump*
I liked 14.  How long do you think it'll be before 16? ;D

*Bump* Hopefully next week.  Unfortunately the average tutorial takes about 7 hours to write, moreso for the ASM Gorilla ones :D

Yes indeed...only about 1/3 of the lesson is actual typing.  The other 2/3s is thinking, trying to make it funny and understandable, double and triple checking, and making sure that the program examples work

Wow, that sure takes a lot of work. I'm glad you are spending the time making ASM learning easier for people. I hope once it is finished that it will be popular on ticalc.org and here (altough over here I think it already is, because I think it had over 500 downloads last time I checked a few weeks ago).

Maybe at the end of July I'll have more time to catch up on those tutorials.

Thank you for doing this!  I'm sure there's some stuff in Asm in 28 that's not right. :)

Yeah, there are a few errors in Asm in 28. However, I'm not sure where they are and I don't know of any compilation...

The most famous one is the sprite routine in chapter 25

Can you please post the correct routine?  I don't want to learn that wrong. ;D

I normally would, but sadly I can't remember which one it was.  But I'm covering sprites in lesson 17, so if you're willing to wait until then, you have nothing to worry about :)

Somehow, in Lesson 4, I can't get Command Prompt to work. It always says

'spasm' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

When I put program1.asm into Wabbitemu, Wabbitemu always says "Invalid file format". :(

Make sure that Command Prompt is pointing to the correct file location.  Command Prompt will not look for spasm; you have to tell it where spasm is.

If it still doesn't work, send a screenshot of your command prompt, please ;D
