Fully Commented Commodore 64 ROM Disassembly (German)

Whenever I need to look up some code in the ROM of the Commodore 64, I have the choice of the commented disassembly by Marko Mäkelä, the one by Ninja/The Dreams, or the one by Lee Davison – or I can just use my paper copy of “Das neue Commodore-64-intern-Buch“, an excellent line-by-line commentary in German.

That’s why I scanned, OCRed, cleaned up and cross-referenced it.

The raw txt file is maintained at github.com/mist64/c64disasm. Corrections, additions and translations welcome.

The cross-referenced HTML version is available here at pagetable.com/c64rom.

  1. Thank you for all the work. I’m curious as to the legal stituation — I know Data Becker ceased operations this year, but what is the status of the copyright which I assume still belongs to Said Baloui? Sorry if I missed a note on this, I didn’t see anything in the README file. Thanks again!

  2. @Scot: This is hardly a precedent. Back in 1995, the C64 community decided that it was morally okay to digitally share out-of-print books on the topic, since the original authors were most unlikely to gain any more monetary benefit from their works, but the C64 scene was still alive and could greatly benefit from the information. http://project64.c64.org/

  3. Hello fantastic blog! Does running a blog like this take a lot of work?
    I’ve virtually no expertise in programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is
    off topic however I just had to ask. Thanks!

  4. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

  5. Appreciating the commitment you put into your website and detailed information you present.
    It’s great to come across a blog every once in a
    while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Great read!
    I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
