It's just 1's and 0's... how hard can it be?!

The following are some helpful online resources for learning 6502 programming:

A brief guide to programming the 6502 in assembly language:

6502 opcode summary:

Code samples:

Complete step-by-step tutorial:

Emulated programs:

Note: the above tutorials and emulators are not designed with the same memory mapping as the Wasteland 2 computer. You won't be able to use those programs directly, but they are a great resource for learning.

Next, you'll need to get some tools together to assemble your programs into opcode and compile them into a binary file called "Diskette". Check out this thread.
