Hey I've had the 7" Gameduino 3X for a couple of weeks now, and I can say is it's a remarkable unit so far. I've been programming Basic-C and Arduino for the last two years. Also, for the last 6 months I've been learning the ins and outs of the PIC18F452, using MPLAB (Microchip) and a C compiler. So although I have some coding under my belt I'm no expert.
Anyway, for my school project I wanted to use the Gameduino but I'm not allowed to use the Arduino IDE because it's too "easy". So I have no choice other than to build a PCB with the PIC on it that communicates with the Gameduino using SPI. The Gameduino will display sensor data and will have the ability to turn on/off outputs connected to the PIC. My main concern is, how difficult will it be to use the GD2 library in another IDE such as MPLAB? I know Arduino code is in C++ whereas MPLAB is just C. Just wondering if anyone has any pointers or advice? This will be the most difficult part of my project I think.
