Title: UWP in ASM - Can it be done?
Post by: Ascended on April 13, 2018, 09:06:51 AM
Hi Guys,

Was just pondering last night. Would it be at all possible to code a UWP application in ASM?

It would be extremely awesome to see my ASM project running on my XBox One.  8)


[edit]
I guess in hindsight it would defeat the purpose of being 'Universal', so I am guessing the answer is no.

The answer is yes, don't you know we all live in the "Intel's Universe"... :bgrin:

But for phones will be different...that's ARM's Universe... :(

I for one would be very interested to see a boiler-plate asm sample for a UWP. :)

If someone is up to the challenge, it would make a nice addition to the UASM sample pack ;)

There is actually a xbox demo scene,

Managed to get my C++ game working on XBox One via UWP about a year ago. Always cool to see it running on a console.

It worked on Raspberry Pi too as a result being able to run on Windows 10 IOT.

Hey Wolff, I'm not sure if you re using ML or UASM. But if you are using C++ and all its oop craziness you might want to know that UASM has oop support.

edi to add: saying this since you are quite of porting the game to masm

Cool, I may have to take a look. I am using ML currently.
