Yeah, there are quite a few good books on 8 bit computers that have some good info on general 6502 techniques. One that I think is especially interesting is "Apple Graphics and Arcade Game Design". It's got all kinds of sophisticated source code demonstrating indirect/indexed table lookups and junk like that ;) In the credits to the book, the author thanks Jim Nitchals for assistance.
