Summary of Features
"What You See Is What You Get"
Vintage assembly programming is easier than ever using Rainbow, an easy-to-use IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for Windows XP, 98, ME, 2000, and 95. This system assumes most of the work and lets you control most features using simple options from the side panels.
Your projects may consist of many separate source components that are automatically compiled using any of the available assemblers - in a smooth and streamlined build process.
have full control over how your source code is assembled and what target
image it ends up on, whether it's 1k-256k ROMs or umlimited number
of floppy disk images per project. You can also build directly
to PC files and manually export your software.
With the Rainbow Integrated Development Environment you can design software for all kinds of 8-bit vintage computers and game consoles from Windows XP, 98, ME, 2000, or 95.The user-friendly interface takes you from the editor to running in seconds by calling on your favorite M.E.S.S. emulator system in a pop-up window. You can Edit assembly source code, raw binary files, and text files or ASCII BASIC programs, and have many files open at once for each project.
Send the output over to virtual floppy disks ready to emulate or write to real floppies later, or to ROM images that are automatically mounted and run if you like.
