>I'm pretty new to Atari 2600 programming and was wondering if there was a code that shows how to place alphanumerical characters on the screen. Or, should I take the "score display code" and extend it to include all the letters as well?

There's also David Crane's 12 character flickery routine from Basic Programming and Stellar Track, although I think the flicker is pretty tolerable the way it's done. I used it for a bunch of my projects. You might talk to Thomas if you want to use this since he has an optimized version that allows more lines on the screen.
