The files for the later episodes (after the basic z80 series) are in a different folder of the same archive... Please take a look at the folder

/Multiplatform/Sources/

in the sources.7z

The file "CPC_CRTC_Test.asm" is the one shown in this video...

I will fix the Github link, though the files on that site are not as up-to-date as the .7z on my website

The correct link is: https://github.com/akuyou
Perfect, thanks man, got it

Maybe this will be of interest to some people? I've always struggled to get my head around the CRTC registers - and what each actually does... So I wrote a little 'toy' that allows them to be individually altered, with the resulting values shown on screen - for easy testing
Hi, nice to share your tools!
A suggestion for your toy -> display the end AND the beggining of each blocks, this is VERY usefull when doing 32K screen because playing with L-adress allow to move the end of the block mostly away from visible screen and allow some optimisations ;)
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

Multiplatform_ShowDecimal.asm is included by CPC_CRTC_Test.asm, but it's missing from the sources.7z I just downloaded from the website.

Very sorry about that, guess I forgot to add a new file to the package.

The sources.7z is updated on the website, and I've attached the missing file below... I just tested on a blank install... it should work with the one extra file.

Can confirm it definitely works with that file included. Cheers!

If anyone is interested, I've now added a 'forum' to my ChibiAkumas website...


I'm hoping it will become a welcoming and helpful place for beginners learning all kinds of assembly language on all platforms... and I'd like it to become the main place for answering questions (and suggesting improvements/corrections!) that arise from my tutorials (Rather than Youtube - who deleted all my comments when I converted from a personal to brand account  >:( >:( >:( [size=78%])[/size]


Anyone who wants to ask questions, or help give answers is welcome to join, though please note, my forum is intended for ASM related content only, not general 'retro chit-chat'.

I've made another little CPC tutorial video, this one goes really back to basics... and looks at a simple single-asm file 'Hello world'

As well as writing and running the example in WinApe, I've gone over tools and commands to create Disk,Tape and Cartridge images, in case you prefer to use an alternate Assembler or Emulator:

I'll be doing similar tutorials for all the other platforms in my tutorial series (including 6502/68000/x86 and ARM), so please sub my channel if you're interested in non CPC systems to stay informed when I get round to other systems!

To help promote the ChibiAkumas ASM website, and to encourage newcomers to give assembly programming a go, I'm doing a prize draw of three of my custom design T-shirts which will be given totally free... including free shipping!

To have the chance to win one of the T-shirts all you have to do is post an entry into the 'Show And Tell' section of the ChibiAkumas forum

More details here:

Just a quick announcement, I'm starting a second Youtube channel for livestreaming content.

I'll still be doing the same content on my normal channel, but the new channel will be for live programming streams and gaming with technical discussion... I'm planning to put heavy focus on the chat, so hopefully it will be interesting and a bit of fun for people who aren't into short heavy content tutorials I currently do.

The new channel is here... please Sub if you are interested!

I recently added a new video to my youtube channel, covering the use of 16 color mode to simulate 2 layers (Like in the Ghosts and Goblins and original Bubble Bobble game)

I even used the trick to effect a Red-Cyan 3D effect
