As I said (many times) I'll use forced blanking for more PPU communication time.

Vblank is only one of several factors though. Even you could access it during the whole screen I would still say it's impractical. Each random PPU RAM access takes at least ~7x as many instructions as an equivalent random CPU RAM access (and potentially much more). That's without even considering extra instructions needed to implement your complicated memory layout decoding. (Serial access is not that bad, but you need random access for this application.)

Time is relevant for us all, you're not exempt. ;P It's yours to use, though, so have fun.

I have other things to do in computer time (yes I'm a child and I'm only 13) but they are no more useful than this. Anyway I don't know enough. Yet.
