Hello all, I found out about AGD via Paul Jenkinson's truly amazing 'Spectrum Show' on youtube.
I would have killed for something like AGD back when I had a spectrum in the early-mid 1980's as the Quicksilva and Melbourne House game designers were very average and quite limiting.
AGD looks truly awesome and, well it looks such fun to use that I've bought a Spectrum off ebay and I'm in the process of sending it away for a refurb/recapping just so I can use AGD when it returns in a few weeks time.
I'm amazed this is free, I can't imagine the amount of work that went into it, is there a 'donate' button somewhere, where we can toss you a few quid as a thank you?
(I guess while I'm waiting, I could use an emulator and start learning to use the software)

AGD is free and there are no plans for a donate button. There may be a physical tape release via Cronosoft one day with a few bug fixes and some extra features but probably not for a long while yet.
Meanwhile, there's also a multi-platform version (0.7) that runs on 64-bit Windows machines, supporting a small but growing selection of 8-bit machines including the Spectrum. This is the most powerful version at present and extra functionality is added with each new update.

Thanks for your kind comments.
As I've always said, I don't want to make money from this so MPAGD and AGD will always be free to download. However, there is now a facility to donate whenever you download a new version from my itch.io page although you won't get anything extra for it and 30% of your donation goes to the US government in withholding tax. You'd be better off buying a copy of SEUD or PGD from Cronosoft as at least then you'll be getting another related product for your donation
