CBM prg Studio v3.12.0 released

CBM prg Studio Version 3.12.0 is released. There are a lot of new features in this version. I’d really appreciate it if you report any bugs you find or have any suggestions/comments.

CBM prg Studio allows you to type a BASIC or Machine Code program in using a nice Windows environment and convert it to a ‘.prg’ file which you can run on an emulator, or even a real C64 / VIC20 or PET if you’re feeling brave and have the right kit.

CBM prg Studio is the result of merging C64PrgGen and VIC20PrgGen. Adding new features and fixing bugs in two apps which were 95% similar was a bit of a nightmare so merging them made sense.

It was also a good opportunity for a face lift and to add some new features, such as:

  • Programs are project based, meaning all related source files, sprite files etc. are kept in one place and multiple source files can be linked more easily.
  • Tabbed MDI.
  • Syntax highlighting.

What CBM prg Studio isn’t is a front-end for tok64, cbmcnvrt, bastext or any other tokeniser / detokeniser / assembler. It’s all been written completely from scratch.

New features in v3.12.0:

  • Assembler:
    • SaveBlock directive.
    • Repeat..EndRepeat directive.
    • Improved “IfDef” directive.
    • Start address can be a label.
  • Screen Editor:
    • New export options for assembly and BASIC programs.
  • General:
    • “Go to” dialog can now use BASIC line numbers.
    • Cursor colour can be changed.
    • Cursor blinking can be turned on/off.
  • Debugger:
    • Variables can be watched.
    • Separate windows for the stack, breakpoints and watches.
    • Stack pointer shown in stack window.
    • Support for the “C64 Debugger”. See here for details of this debugger.

Bugs Fixed:

  • Assembler:
    • A comma in quotes as a text or byte directive was not being generated.
    • Reformatting text issues.
    • Global variables appearing twice in the autocomplete list.
    • Forward references for local labels in macros not assembling.
  • BASIC:
    • Incorrect ‘Jump to destination’ and ‘return from jump’ with ‘similar’ line numbers.
  • Screen Editor:
    • Screen mode not being saved/recalled properly.
    • Binary file export problems.
  • General:
    • Crash when using certain mono fonts.
    • Bad formatting of output from data generator tool.

See the help for a complete list of new features and fixed bugs.

Note In this version, each target machine can have its own default project directory. If you are upgrading from a previous version (before version 2.5.1) of CBM prg Studio you may be asked to set up your project directories again. Your current projects will not be affected.
