Dark Empire - Disassembled

OK, I've run the program on the SNA file and now have lines upon lines of assembly language.
Right. What do I do now?

Well I've been down the library reading up on the Z80. The book I referred to earlier (Introduction to Z80 assembly language by Ian Richard Sinclair), has been very useful, not just for the Z80, but for some of the general principles of how a computer works. The chapter I'm focussing on the moment contains a discussion of the Z80 architecture and how the registers are used in assembly language.

The next chapter will start into the nitty gritty. Hopefully from this I'll be able to work out how the assembly language from DE is structured.
