I've been playing the Atari 2600 since I was a kid and
the other night decided to get into programming. I've
sort of touched Intel ASM before. I downloaded several
manuals and text files, the DASM assembler, and a
sample program (How to Draw a Playfield). I've been
goofing around with the code and doing different
things. I noticed that the drawing of the playfield
occurs with .byte commands. What do the hex codes
mean, and how does the .byte command work, so I can
customize with my own colors and drawings?
