So, what's going on in the world of 8-bit bedroomware? New games in development, updates to AGD and anything else of interest - or not!
02 April 2020Another MPAGD Update
MPAGD now supports the 4 colour modes of the VZ200 and the Acorn Atom. There are a few bug fixes since last time and there's a new subdirectory for the small fonts required by the Atom, VZ200 and Amstrad CPC.
During these difficult times where we are all locked down I am continuing to support, update and improve the tool so if you are stuck at home with nothing to do, now might be a good time to start playing with MPAGD. If you have kids stuck at home with you there are worse ways of teaching them to code than using its simple scripting language.
15 March 2020New Version of MPAGD
MPAGD version 0.7.6 has just been released. Jose Luis Tursan's MSX build suite is now incorporated and the VZ200 has been added as a new machine. The font editor has been improved and now has 12 wonderful built-in fonts, courtesy of Damien Guard. There's a new F5 key to build and run your game in an emulator without the fuss of saving source files. AGD 4.8 games can now be imported, as can 128K snapshots. Plus there are a load of other changes and bug fixes. More details can be found here.
