Update History


For old updates to keep the main page clean!




2016 December 22



My my my, it has been over two years since Iíve done any major updates, sorry about that.I have other more important things to deal with right now.You probably wonít see much updates for a long while still, I have plenty to do, but Iíll make sure this all stays up just to be sure.


I have included below, a list of people who have contributed minor fixes here and there.These are the people who have fixed the site in the past three years, and this is my small token of thanks.


Iíve also ďstartedĒ a split disassembly recently of NHL 94 for the SEGA Mega Drive; you can find it here if youíre interested.


In the mean time, have some more music~





2014 December 06


An update!I'd recommend going into Part 07 of Sections 06 first, because a homework challenge has been put in place at the bottom of that page, Part 08 is obviously the answers, so you'll wanna try working it out yourself first.


Meanwhile, have some music:





2014 October 04



A little clean up here and there, nothing major.I wanted to seperate the older updates into their own page, as the YouTube embeds were slowing the page loading down.


2014 March 22



Section 06 is now coming to an end.Now featuring a multitude of conditional branches.


If anyone notices any mistakes, be sure to give me an email.I wrote a lot of stuff today in such a short period of time, itís easy to make the slightest mistake.


2014 March 18



Well hot damn!!Itís been a long while, hasnít it?I think I owe you guys an explanation...


Iíve been extremely busy with a lot of things, namely an art editor that looks like Windows XP paint, but for Mega Drive VDP graphics:





Additionally, Iíve been doing various things to my game, hereís a little insight for you, featuring a new idle animation:



Pretty sweet huh?


Iím gonna be working on rewriting Section 05 of the tutorial and then adding some things onto it.From now on, youíll find a ďnewĒ tag at the beginning of ones that have been changed or updated, so you know which ones to read again if thereís been a mistake or whatever.




In the mean time, have some Kylie Minogue!Also, a special thanks to:


Tomislav, Ardeshir, and Tim.


For pointing out various mistakes in previous pages d=

Happy Halloween!!


And with that, we have a Section 05!!


Also, have another music video, something a little more modern, recommended to me by my favourite aussie, Flygon:




If these YouTube video embeds are causing you too much loading time, just give me a bell via my email, and Iíll revert the older embeds to links.


2013 October 20



So Iíve taken the time to clean up Section 04, the parts have been shuffled around slightly.


If youíve read through Section 04, so far and donít wish to re-read what youíve already read.Then simply take a look at part 01, part 04 and then continue from part 08 onwards.The other parts in this section are pretty much the same, just cleaned up a little (spellings, grammar, etc).


Sorry for the inconvenience.


2013 October 18



Sorry for the lack of parts this past week.


I work in a deli factory you see, and the people who have been put in charge of the factory make a lot of stupid mistakes.This costs the main company money, and results in the lack of equipment and staff.We operatives go through hell most days, its bad enough having to wake up at 4-5am.


Iím not here to complain about that though.


My main point is, I lack the time and energy to do multiple projects at once during the week, and so, I have to do a bit of juggling between the projects.


Hereís what Iíve been up to recently:




Pretty cool huh?


Iíll be getting back to more instructions soon.


2013 October 13



Bit shifting and rotation have been put up to the site now, they may need a little cleaning up, so Iíll have to go over them later on at some point (you know, check for spelling errors, mistakes in the rules, etc).


In the mean time, have some 90ís Italo House music:




2013 October 08



The binary section is now complete, and Iím looking into signed and unsigned, and instructions that deal with positive and negative.Might be able to get up to (and pass) the divs/divu instruction (thatís where the previous version of the tutorial stopped).


2013 October 04



Some minor clean up, and a few things added here and there, and some mistakes have been rectified (a special thanks to FraGag for reporting them).


On subject, I was thinking of creating a FAQ or Q&A page, but of course, Iíd need some questions first...†† Any questions?I donít claim to know everything, but Iíd be happy to try and answer what I can.


2013 September 30



The instruction ďaddiĒ for immediate values has been explained and added to the ďaddĒ instruction page.The ďsubĒ instruction page is now available too.


I shall press on with the simpler instructions like ďswapĒ, ďexgĒ and ďclrĒ, so expect them to pop up sometime during the evening.


In the mean time, have some 80ís music:

And weíre back ladies and gentlemen.


I had an attack of consciousness about a week ago.A few programming experienced individuals said that the tutorial wasnít worth doing at this much of a basic level, and that stuff such as binary/hex and basic stuff like that should be left out.


I originally agreed with them as they did make a few points.But given that I received a good load of emails reporting the tutorial gone when I took it down last week, itís clear to me that they appear to be wrong about the tutorial.I mean given the tutorial to receive positive feedback from people who the tutorial is actually designed for...


Why are experts generally uptight and negative in their area of expertise towards newcomers?


Maybe they have a too higher standard, who knows...Either way, I donít think Iíll sink to that level.


OH!!By the way!!


Scroll down for a little insight into what Iíve been using 68k for ;)


2013 September 17



Wow, what a great holiday...Itís great to be back though!


I did however, hit a little snag with hotmail, it seems it was trying to be ďcleverĒ.When I signed in online abroad, it locked me out requesting a phone number, thinking it was protecting me.


Iíve gotta tell ya folks, technology is becoming tedious these days, so much protection even I canít access my account.


SO!New email address, this time with Gmail, Iíve not been much of a fan of Google, but everyone Iíve asked have said that itís one of the few decent e-mail services out there.


Regarding the tutorial, itís still going!Got a results part for that homework in, finally.Sorry about that folks (should have done it before I went on holiday).


2013 September 07



An update on registers and the basic set out of an instruction, this time a little more info on address registers.


Additionally, Iíll be on holiday for the entire week, so I wonít be contributing any further until I get back.


In the mean time, have some music:




2013 September 05



Tutorial rewrite begins!  I have here a section where youíll be kept up to date with the progress, at least now youíll know how long ago the last update was =P
