Programming Tutorials...

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone:

 

I have a question. I just joined the forum tonight. Are there any programming tutorials for BASIC and assembly language code for beginners on the Atari platforms that can be accessed on here? If not, will they be available? If so, I am duly interested in learning more about programming, primarily on the 8-bit platform as a base. I also want to learn how to program on other Atari platforms as well. Could there eventually be tutorials on those systems as well?

 

Thanks for reading this post and for having me on here as a new member. I appreciate the opportunity. :lol:

The last 2 years at the Houston ArcadeExpo, Darrell Spice Jr. from Spiceware has done presentations about how to write & program for the Atari VCS/2600. His site is http://spiceware.org/  I know there is a program called Batari to write programs but there's some other program that Darrell uses. If you watch his presentation its listed in there. 

 

Hope this helps you.

Thanks for the response. I will check that out. I do have Batari BASIC already, but I just have not used it yet. I am hoping that, just like AtariAge, we have programming tutorials on this forum to see. Just a thought. Anyway, there are other platforms other than the 2600 that I want to learn, like the Lynx and the 7800 platform. Batari BASIC seems intuitive enough, however, and it even has a user interface that can be downloaded (called Visual Batari BASIC) which I also have. It's pretty cool. I guess that could be a start. :)

curently there are three atari game systems that have basic complier language (which is basically when you type up a code basic language then you run it into complier to make bin(or rom ) format):

BatariBasic for 2600:http://atariage.com/forums/forum/65-batari-basic/

7800 basic for 7800: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/222638-7800basic-beta-the-release-thread/

Raptor Basic + for the Jaguar: http://atariage.com/forums/forum/161-raptor-basic/

 

I programed in bBasic and its prettty simple I recommend that you get ide V bBasic it will help program a lot faster.

This is not on here but here: http://www.atarimania.com/documents/Atari-BASIC-Tutorial.pdf

 

Mind you though it is a slow loading website so once you get the whole .pdf, i suggest you save it to your PC for the next session.

 

EDIT: Ooops, didn't check the date on the original post, anyway the link may help someone else, as for the OP, he probably is a BASIC expert by now. LOL

I once had Visual batariBASIC. I should give that a shot again. Thanks. I will also try 7800basic.
