This is my first day with my new max32.

I bought the itead shd032 ( together with my max32.

Trying to run the utft-demo I realize that I have issues understanding the shield pinout vs the board pinout.

If I interpret the utft-requirements correct I can't use this shield directly on the max32 as it requires data lines not mapped on the 36-pin connector and therefor need to edit the library?

The required data lines exist on the 36-pin connector on the arduino-mega.

Have I got it all wrong or is this really the case?

The Max32 and Mega should have the same pinouts. However, there are many cases where a library written for the Arduino platform may not be compatible with chipKIT if the author of the library has bypassed Arduino abstraction and is talking directly to the Atmel processor.
