I don't see any mention of LEDs in the instructions. Where did you want to add them? The A1200 LEDs are not attached to the keyboard.

I wrote this one (https://github.com/amigageek/modsurfer/blob/4bdebbdc6162cc79af394c3caee40d5867808401/blit.c#L78) in C. Should be easy to adapt the principles to assembly.
