I have read PT_'s documentation on ICE several times, and I get hexadecimal, binary, and all the numbers like that, but I don't seem to understand what pointers are. The documentation says that when you use variables as memory addresses, it's called a pointer. I don't seem to be able to access memory addresses of "Stuff" except the few that were here. Functions like tilemaps (which I'm still trying to figure out) require pointers, and I'm not sure how those two are even related!
Take sprites for an example. You could do DefineSprite(10,10,...)->SPRITE, where SPRITE is the pointer. Basically, the sprite code is stored into an address in RAM, and the pointer just has the location for the data. You would use that specific pointer (sprite pointer, in this case), by doing Sprite(SPRITE,X,Y, where X and Y are either the coordinate variables, or numbers that represent the X and Y values, respectively.

Hope this helps! If you are confused on any other pointers, just ask!

As for tilemaps, the pointer is probably to the AppVar with the data, obtained by Open(). I am not 100% sure on the tilemaps thing, so ask PT_ or someone else who is more knowledgeable on the subject.
I need some help I have been using this code and it does not display the time


Lbl 1
getkey → K
*{F38004 → MIN
if K=15
Goto E
goto 1
Lbl E

It displays something different.
What am I doing wrong and how can I fix this?
You need the uppercase exponent "e" before the hexadecimal number.
