(MarkeyJester’s Motorola 68000 Beginner’s Tutorial)
This tutorial is in the process of being written and in the middle of clean up, please take notice that there may be errors or incorrect sections currently that have yet to be fixed, so hang around, grab a biscuit and a lovely cup of tea, and all will be fine in the mean time =)
Hello reader! I go by the name of MarkeyJester, I’m a “Pro User” at sonicresearch.org and a “Tech Member” at sonicretro.org, and I know quite a few programming languages, however, I specialise mainly in an assembly language for the 68k (Motorola 68000 series), I specialise in this language because I’m in the process of programming a full platform game for the SEGA Mega Drive, and it’s main processor just so happens to be the Motorola 68000.
I was inspired by “redhotsonic’s” (a “Pro User” at sonicresearch.org and a “Scener” at sonicretro.org) beginner’s tutorial for 68k assembly, and decided to make one myself as his one was incorrect in many areas, but its format was very well set out, so you may find this tutorial to be similar in several aspects.
