Folks, it's been a few years since I looked at this. I apologize, real life has got in the way a bit. Now I'm back with cycles to spare on this.
In fact, when I brushed the dust off the VM this evening, I see that the guest OS on the build platform is Windows 2000. Yikes...
But the good news is that the system still builds. So yes, I'll get that Italian translation and French translation recompiled. And I've fixed a few bugs. So there should be a V4 coming down the pipe fairly soon.

1) I don't believe that the Ipad represents a serious danger to the Xbox 360 and the PS3 (the "present" of gaming), even with comparable graphical capabilities. An Xbox 360 is 280 €; a PS3 is 308 €;... more
Of everything I said, you concentrate on the 2 of the things I only mentioned as an aside. My MAIN points are .... 1] iOS is now just as mainstream a platform as computers & consoles and all of the... more
Do you really want the MDDClone author to port his program to a device made in 1997, with a monochrome screen, a 68000-based processor and 512 KB of RAM? Maybe you just meant a Palm smartphone, but... more
Symbian may be most used in the smartphone market, but how many Symbian users go grabbing apps off their equivalent to the App Store? I would suggest Android as a starting point because it's an open... more
