I'm new to this list! Hopefully i'm going to be getting into Atari 7800 game
development soon, it all depends on whether I can put together an Atari 7800
developer kit for the Amiga (i don't have any Wintel boxes at home...)

I've had a brief look through the archives, and you seem like a nice, helpful
bunch, so I hope i'll fit in. I suppose I'd better give you a bit of

I live in the UK, where i'm a software engineer for a slot machine company, so
I get to code in Z80 assembler for a living ;)

I'm a keen retrocomputer and gaming enthusiast, and I love weird hardware
architectures and assembly language. I can code in 68000, 6502, 6809,
Signetics 2650, i386 (YUCK! ;), and Z80 assembly, as well as a whole bunch of
high level languages.

Right... on to my first query...

I was attempting to compile a78sign on the Amiga with GCC.

Well, I can't even build Cryptolib++, which is supposed to be very portable,
let alone A78sign :-/

Anyway, I know 68000 assembly better than I know C++, and it occurs to me that
a78sign was created through people decoding an Atari ST program (which was
68000), and my target platform is... 68060!

I was wondering if you knew if anyone had the source, or a commented
disassembly (or at worst an uncommented one ;) of the original Atari ST
program so that I might have a go at porting it directly...
