On the Subject of Assembly Code

Why are registers important, when you are already modifying them!

On the module, there are 3 displays. The left display will have 8 "codes", the top display will have a description of what a "code" does, and the right display tells you the position of the list you are in.

The list on the left of the module is index-0.

To solve the module, multiply the number of AA batteries by 2 and add 1. Modulo 8 and add 1 again. If there is any Lines of code, Scripting, or Brainf---, the number is 0. This number is the "code" you are going to solve for in each stage, where the "code" is the 3-5 letter word on the left of the module and the 2nd column in the list below.

Refer to the list below to get the description. You can also use the 2 buttons to cycle through the descriptions on the top of the module.
