    Cursor position on Assembly...


    Hello!

    I'm programming the tic tac toe game on 8086 and I'm having difficulties trying to change the cursor position from one place to another,for example,I managed to place the cursor on the top left corner on the tic tac toe board and I want to change it to the right on the same row.How do i do that?

    Thanks in advance for the replies!

    Hi,

    you could do it with bios calls but thats clunky.

    What assembler are you using?

    Have you seen HLA(high level assembly). It looks cool and is available for windows & Linux. Provides a easier method for begineers to learn assembly, with lots of nice extra bits that other "higher" languages provide. For example it provides easy console commands which include moving the cursor around.

    Hope this helps.
