PIC24F Graphics on MPLABX v5.xx
I find my self a bit frustrated looking everywhere for information but only finding pieces or mixed info. To start, I want to make an application with a graphics display and a touch screen. I decided to use the PIC24FJ256DA210 with internal GPU. First obstacle was to find that most of the development boards that the documentation is based on are simply not available any more. I can't understand the reason Microchip still leaves this documentation available on their site if they instruct to use development boards which are not available. Anyway, I managed to get the PIC24FJ256DA210 development board (DM240312) and a compatible graphics display (copy of the Graphics Display Truly 3.2 240x320 Board AC164127-4 which again, is not available any more).
Now I was looking at the development tools and wanted to use the MLA library together with the GDD X for graphics generation. The issue is that apparently, the latest version of MPLAB X (actually, from version 3.00 onwards) does not support the GDD X plug in and if I want to use it, I need to install MPLAB X v2.35 or lower.
My question now is simple, what are the latest tools available if I want to generate a graphics application on the PIC24FJ256DA210? Is there a similar plugin as the graphics composer on Harmony or am I stuck with using MPLAB X v2.35?
