Interested in learning assembly
« on: August 26, 2012, 01:04:23 PM »
I am an old-timer when it comes to computers. Back in the days of punch cards and floppy drives. Was mainly self-taught (poorly - using goto statements) but am now back in college taking CIS with a focus on C#, structured programming etc. Just Finished a class in System Analysis and Design in fact.

Assembly has always interested me. I have a basic understanding of jumps, nop, push, and a few other things as I used to disassemble games (mostly Everquest) to create cheats, and find the offsets and opcodes (nothing illegal, but yeah frowned upon a bit by gamers). I have since moved on but it was a great way to learn things for me. Look forward to exploring the forums, learning from the tutorials and examples. Nice site, and great program.

Thanks,

Marc

Get your facts first, and then you can distort them.
