@_discord_435465971017449484:t2bot.ioCyningstan I looked at the ia16 project for GCC but didn't get very far with it. In my current projects I need far memory access (for writing to the CGA screen) and the compiler currently lacks it. I also had reliability issues with Turbo C a few years back. So OpenWatcom is probably the best option. Especially since you can host development on Linux, Windows or DOS. 12:01:47

@_discord_639761555461898252:t2bot.ioStaticSaga I just remembered that Digital Mars exists, in some tests it generated smaller code compared to OW and DJGPP 12:57:07

@_discord_530911546818428931:t2bot.ioFranx1024 thanks 13:22:05

@_discord_530911546818428931:t2bot.ioFranx1024 Assembler was easy to install and find how to go to graphics mode but it's awful to code in. 13:25:19
@_discord_211585782740287488:t2bot.iomidn It's just different 13:26:25
@_discord_211585782740287488:t2bot.iomidn After a while it'll become easier to work with 13:26:48
@_discord_639761555461898252:t2bot.ioStaticSaga mode 13h is easy, unchained modes are weird but not hard, planar modes are weird (especially if you use the VGA/EGA features) 13:27:44
@_discord_211585782740287488:t2bot.iomidn The 16-color mode is weirdest to work with 13:28:18

@_discord_530911546818428931:t2bot.ioFranx1024 I tried to run each program from bin and it said it required Win32 13:30:40
It's just different
it makes it difficult that there are no objects or structures and that simple calculations have to be written across multiple commands
@_discord_211585782740287488:t2bot.iomidn Well, that's how it works 13:32:42
@_discord_211585782740287488:t2bot.iomidn But again, with practice you begin to see patterns in it like everywhere else 13:32:50
