There was a time in the past when I would have advocated the direct approach. Since then I think programming professionally in C++ has given me good habits, but Commodore didn't even want people touching the hardware registers directly, in vain have I tried to explain to my dad that writing anything impressive practically requires that you do this.

Nevertheless in future I intend to go so far as to attempt to get things to run in an Intuition screen. I perfectly understand game coders NOT doing this even to this day. Perhaps it's the opposite sort of showing off...
