    The developers of XD no longer want anything to do with Windows, and who can blame them? Unfortunately, Wolf MAME is an exclusively Windows programme, so anyone wishing to use XD for INP analysis has to get 'xd.exe' from archived editions of the XD webpage. The most recent of these is dated ...

    For some reason, I keep allowing myself to be astounded by the lack of common sense displayed by people who think they have good ideas for competitive gaming rules.

    Saulo Bastos's 1,311 point score and Patrick Wheeler's 1,085 point score.

    It's always unfortunate, when invalid disputes are raised, but at least it's given me an opportunity to address the inadequacy of the track's rules. Before

    Since TG persists with its "106 standard", as regards the rules for MAME tracks, anyone wishing to perform INP analyses is obliged to have that old version of MAME on his or her computer, along with its outdated ROMS, etc.
