Posted 30 Aug 2012You should also consider renaming your methods/variables to something a little.. shorter. Easier to remember, and something that conforms to convention. So instead of using "characteristicsPlayer", you could use "playerKarma". Also instead of using "cpushipcountatstartoff", you could use "cpuShipCount"
Never mind. I'll go try another forum where people are respectful.

QuoteOne, I am learning how to write in Assembly using the Art of Assembly book (like I've said before), and I'm wondering if its age might mean I should try some other tutorials for learning assembly.
No, your fine with it. Randy actually goes in depth very well about the inner workings of the processor, memory, strings, etc... It is a good foundation to learn from. Once you get your "feet wet", go right ahead and look at other tutorials.
QuoteTwo, I am learning x86 assembly on an AMD64 processor instead of an Intel x86-64 processor. Would that change a lot for me in learning assembly, or are there very few differences between the two architectures (programming wise)
Nope, no differences a beginner will need to know of. They both have 95% same instructions, the difference will be in the multimedia extensions and AMD has a few instructions INTEL won't and vise versa.
Now, 32bit is a bit different than 64bit. Prologues/Epilogues are different, stacks are different sizes. There are pinned topics on the Assembly Forum front page, one of them should contain links to the AMD and INTEL developers guides, both are a MUST have. If you can't find links, let me know and I will add them.
Welcome to the Assembly Forum on Dream In Code!!!
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! If you could find the links to the developer guides, that would be most appreciated! Thanks again for the warm welcome into the forums!
Posted 5 Jul 2012Oops! I'll go post it there.
