Most of these are now free, but if you do find yourself using them, be sure to donate to Mark.

    I was going to go over to AGK2, I already have the old AGK, but have now decided to try out Monkey2 when I return to coding.

    Is there any way you could make this thread sticky Jay?, maybe a hot-link at top left of the site.

    Yeah, I'm going to shove it in the left sidebar, with the FAQs link and those bits and pieces. Figured that's as good a place as any.
