ASM-One Crashes

Does anyone have any pointers for getting ASM-One to work with the Vampire?  The application loads OK, but during compilation it will undoubtedly crash.

I've tried 1.48 & 1.49RC2.  It will also crash if certain screenmodes are selected.  My gut feeling is that it does something 'hacky' with the text generation & RTG support, but I have no way of knowing for sure.

OK, so it has something to do with the source I'm playing with.  It is the DiagROM source and the issue occurs when setting the org to $f80000.

When disabling compiling to ROM, it compiles without issue and wow it is fast.

I assume a non-Vampirized Amiga ignores a write to a Kickstart area as it is read only as it compiles without issue on my A1200.  It causes an immediate hang on a V2+.

I think it doesn't support RTG modes properly. I don't remember if I tried the same version, but I had many issues as well when I tried it, so I switched to PAL laced and then it worked fine. From what I can gather, RTG support was patched into it, but never properly integrated since the original software has various optimizations towards regular PAL/NTSC modes.

ORG will put both the base address and the code to the location you specify by it. If you want to assemble for ROM, then you need to put a LOAD statement after the ORG which contains a valid address within available RAM.
