New to asm!
« on: May 22, 2012 »
I've been teaching myself some windows assembly for the past couple months using masm, but it seems fasm has quite a more active following, any reason to stick with masm or should I switch over?

Hi xoreaxeax, welcome to the forum!
I can't think of any reason to stick or change...
Microsoft will help you coding Windows, FASM maybe help with other things and be more up-to-date.

Old thread, but I'm also new here and in the same boat. Learning some Windows assembly to code some demo effects. I chose assembly because that's what I've been using on other platforms. I've read a couple of books and done some simple utilities so far. I feel okay with the assembly language and studying OpenGL at the moment. Oh, for the record I use MASM.

I have been relearning 6502 assembly after 35 years.  How much harder is x86?

Yes, I've been studying some of them already, but thanks for the suggestion.

Not harder just different. But for 32 bit x86 you must also learn the OS ( Win32 API, or Unix ) so this will slow you down.

It may be easier to learn x86 under DOS first and then take on Win32. Or learn Win32 from a HLL and then start learning x86.

Also iczelions tutorials are a great starting place.
