Ok, here is a snapshot version [1.0.5199.25379]
To create a new project use the menu bar Project->New. Enter your project name, change the project directory by pressing the button labeled '...' if you wish to.
At the moment it is an easy way to keep all your files together, you can add files to the project by either right clicking on a file in the File Explorer, or right clicking in the Project Explorer and picking whichever option you want (Add existing or Add new).
There will be a lot more being added to projects in the future
The latest changelog is display in the window while installing. Please uninstall any previous version first. If you wish to save your settings then find the settings.xml file in the program folder and put that somewhere safe. Install then copy the settings.xml back into the program folder.
This shouldn't crash, but there will be some things I've either not got around to completing or I've totally forgot about them, so, *anything* you come across that is not right, please contact me...
>>>> NOTE: THIS IS A VERY VERY EARLY TEST VERSION!!! <<<<
At the moment there is not quite enough error checking put in this, so if you receive an exception of any kind, please take a screenshot or copy/paste the error details and message or email it to me, thanks. If you have any problems.
And don’t forget the Donation button in Help -> About ;)
If you have altered anything in the Settings window, and would like to keep those settings, then please back up settings.xml. Once you have finished installing you can put the settings.xml back. The usual install location is C:\Program Files (x86)\1808 apps\Z80 Asm Editor\
Use the editor toolbar to compile/run, there are tooltips on it. I will get round to hooking up the main menu eventually. Also, you can use the shortcut keys that can be set in the Settings window, usually F9/F10.
It uses .net framework 4 so that will be needed, although I expect you may already have it installed. If there is anything totally wrong or crashing then just message me, and I'll look into it.
As I said, don't bother with the main menu unless you are wanting to get into the basic settings and about box for now,
Any comments, queries, bugs, improvements or feature requests you have can be messaged to me on facebook (www.facebook.com/polomint77) or email me on email@example.com or Skype me (username is polomint77).
With asm you should always make sure you are using an ORG address. Also if you place a label at the start of your asm file, and then place 'END label' at the end, then when you run in the emulator it will automatically do the RANDOMIZE USR label for you... e.g.
<Your asm here>
END start ; This tells the compiler to create a .tap file that automatically does "USR start"
