Aviator on the BBC Micro

Useful links

Here's a collection of links that I've found useful or interesting when working on this project.

General
-------

BBC Micro information and tools
-------------------------------

  • The Advanced User Guide - my most-thumbed book, which permanently lies by the side of my trusty Beeb, open at the assembly mnemonics section
  • Hex and binary converter - probably the web tool I used the most during this project, especially when converting numbers into binary
  • BBC MOS disassembly - I found this particularly useful when trying to decipher undocumented OS calls

Emulators
---------

  • b2 - a Beeb emulator with brilliant debugging capabilites that happily works on the Mac, and which is now my go-to emulator for complex disassembly projects like this
  • JSBeeb - an absolute tour-de-force from Matt Godbolt, this browser-based emulator is wonderfully convenient
  • beebjit - the best BBC emulator for playing with disc protection on the original discs

Assemblers and disassemblers
---------------------------

  • BeebAsm - the wonderful 6502 assembler that powers the source code that is documented on this site
  • BeebDis - I found this super-useful for disassembling the original game binaries
  • A BeebDis thread on Stardot - some handy information for users of BeebDis
