Bit-Ops Firmware

    Hey forum, I stumbled across the "Permut8 Firmware Code" folder and thought I'll have a wee play with it for an afternoon. I didn't do a full patch, just a mod patch. It's simply an implementation of all bitwise operations, see here.
    Some of them are useless/nonsensical, but I included them for completeness sake. I only made 5 programs for the bank, but I thought I share anyway... source code included.

    Wow! Looks great! I believe you are the first to figure this all out. It's like you cracked the trickiest easter egg I left in there. Congrats!

    Did you discover the firmware loader program in the console (run patch)? It's very handy when trying things out. Run one of the compile loop scripts I left in the firmware folder and then you can simply save your source code and Permut8 will update asap.

    The first one, really? Then I guess congrats are in order for such a well-hidden easter egg. It's "only" been 7 years. :)

    Yes, I've used the compile loop script and the patch program. Is there another way of getting a GAZL file loaded into Permut8?

    I did plan to release documentation, but never got around to it. Especially for Impala which was a hack that I didn't really plan to live this long. But yeah, I don't believe I've seen any other custom hacks yet.

    Just the much harder way of putting GAZL code directly into a .p8bank file. .p8bank files are also plain text. Sort of.

    Wait, so... am I the 2nd then? 🤔 I discovered the console app and got bit by the firmware bug so I ended up here looking for a jumpstart and I'm off to the races. Thanks ebfx. Sorry for necro, but I'm interested if others have gone down this rabbit hole, too?
