* Unsupported instruction: Use the hexadecimal OP-Codes with the assembler instruction ".db" For example, instead of "SLL (HL)", use ".db $CB,$36"

SZHPNC = How the different bits of the Flag byte (the F in the AF register) are affected. Check the FLAGS table below this for more.

Op-code = The instruction's equivalent in hexadecimal.

"r" means register. It can be A,B,C,D,E,H, or L. Add this to last byte of OP-code:


In "LD (IX+N),r" and "LD (IY+N),r" you add these to the byte BEFORE the last.

"b" means bit. It can be 0-7. Increase the last byte of the OP-code with 8 times b. Used in SET, BIT and RES.

If there are two numbers given for Cycles, then the highest is when the jump is taken, the lowest is when it skips the jump.
