These are errors I have encountered using TASM and the methods I used to
correct them. When debugging a program, look in the
You tried to load a number value to a instead of hl or there is an unidentified label in your program. If there is an unidentified label in your program, this error will be preceded with a "Label not found" error. So make sure the label is there and check the spelling. If you loaded a number value into a instead of hl, change it because hl is a 16 bit register, so it will probably work.
You probably mispelled one of the z80 instructions. Find the mispelled z80 instruction (Not ROM call, this error does not apply to ROM calls) and correct it's spelling.
Numerous things could of happened to generate this error.
|A. You mispelled a label||Solution - Fix Spelling|
|B. You mispelled a ROM call(s)||Solution - Fix Spelling|
|C. You mispelled a ROM call(s) when defining them||Solution - Fix Spelling|
|D. You didn't include the label||Solution - Include it!|
I wonder how you solve this one? Hmm... I know. Maybe you have two of the same labels. Rename one of the labels something else.
Line up the program a little bit better or fix the duplicate label error if you got one.
This means either you spelled the name of the program you are assembling, or TASM couldn't open an include file (If you used one). A good way to fix this is to check the spelling of filenames where ever you used them.
It took me 2 days to fix this one! When it happened to me, I mispelled a z80 instruction, Label, ROM call, or the macro that calls the ROM call. So double check your spelling.
You put too many arguments in a specified .db statement. Spread them out into multiple .db statements.
You probably put in an argument where one isn't accepted. Try loading the value into a different register. Sorry I can't offer more help on this error, it has never happened to me (yet).
Strange, this one's never happened to me either. Well I found the solution in James Matthew's ASMguru! He says "All that means is that you loaded a jp statement instead of a jr." Try it!
I recieved this error when including an include file into my program. I don't know how I fixed the problem, it just seemed to vanish...??? If you know how to fix it please tell me.
