Hello tesuki and welcome, we're glad you joined. The forum archives that you are referring to are from an earlier period of time when we were operating forums on a different system. We have recently relaunched our forums, but recognize that some of the information in the archives are still valuable, so we continue to make them available.

Regarding your question about opcodes, we do have that type of information available:
- The AMD64 Architecture Programmer's Manual covers opcodes, operand, operand sizes, operand addressing, etc. in volumes 1 and 2, and you can find opcode listings for 3DNow!, MMX, x87 fp co-processor, 64-bit considerations, and more in volume 3.
- A Google search for "AMD opcodes" produces the following results:

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need more information.

thank you, for the fast answer, and sorry for the 46 days late response.
the document where exactly what was needed and are needed took little too long to read though.
thanks again.
