I'm trying to re-learn 6502 assembly by using some YouTube videos with Applewin and the Merlin assembler. I'm having issues with objects and object files. For example, I type in the exact source code as seen on the YouTube video, I use the same Merlin commands as well, the program completes the assembler process wihtout errors and it matches the exacts output in the video, but I am unable to get Applewin to save the object file after I save the source file. When I tried a different video which use OBJ $300 as the second line in the source code, I get the error "Bad "OBJ" in line 2". Here is the source code for the second video I'm trying to use:
BELL EQU $FBDD
START JSR BELL
Seems pretty simple to me. All I can think of is that it's something in the configuration for Applewin. I've tried unchecking the CP/M card option, and changed the simulation from enhanced IIe to just IIe. I haven't actually tried any of the code on my actual Apple IIe enhanced just yet.
