Wherefore GPL? One of those eternal questions that may never be answered.
<Been looking through the forum and haven't found these answers.>
Now for some dumb (and maybe obvious) questions. Is GPL processed by the VDP and not the CPU? Is GRAM and GROM memory accessed by the VDP only? How can you program GPL from an emulator and what tools you use?
Suggestion Rich, maybe a tutorial on GPL would help people appreciate it's power. As you point out in a previous post it can use a lot less coding than assembler and is almost as fast.
Uh, oh! You're gonna catch it for that. You probably have not checked out the "GPL HOW 2 SERIES" on this forum in the TI-99/4A Development Resurces at http://www.atariage....ment-resources/, have you?
Ya know if you want to take a jab at Rich (applies to everyone) then have the balls to come out like a man and take a jab at him. Shove your smileys and your sarcasm and just say what's on your mind. If you can't do that then STFU and sit back down in your corner. This is gutless BS.
No jab intended on Rich's part.
I respect the work he's done and would like to hear MORE about GPL.
'Wherefore GPL' refers to the debate that has been going back and forth in the TI community forever concerning GPL. I can remember debating it way back in the 80s with some friends of mine to no end.
As for the rest of the post that was an actual question so I could start to learn MORE about GPL and a full tutorial from 'the man' himself WOULD be neat. I must have over looked the post 'GPL how to series' when I was looking for stuff on GPL.
Remember guys, this is just a hobby so be cool.
