My cross-assembler is RAsm, which doesn't support everything that DAsm 
does and some things are just plain different.  Though with programs of 
the size of this demo it's not a big deal to redo the original code and 
make it read correctly, the longer things get the harder that conversion 
will be.  So I was thinking that I'd just cheat and use Distella and put 
in the relavent comments (I've still got tons from Nick not too mention 
all the stuff I add so I can understand myself in my "orig" code) so that 
you crazy PC users could use DAsm without any extra work.  ;)

Unfortunately, that's kinda the way it stands right now.  It's real hard 
to save scans, get different player graphics each line, perform missile 
enables, and update the PF in the same line!  Aaarrrggghhh!!!  I'll keep 

At any rate I'll keep you posted as the code moves from paper to Mac to 
Stella 0.7 to a real VCS!  Thanks again.
