Ahhhhh - genius :)

Ahhh I get you, and Raz I guess needed Guru to release the remaining roms so he himself could play ProGear on an emulator?
So after Guru turned around and pretended to throw a hissy fit (to become the bad guy), Raz then immediately wanted to release the XORs in order to appear 'good' in comparison and to push Guru *further* into being the bad guy, "Oh look I'm the good guy, I release all my XORs now, it's GURU who is hordeing it he's the bad guy" in order to guilt-trip Guru!
Guru played Raz's own silly game against him
Heh, after stuggling all these years with classic arcade hardware, protection, hardware trojans, and HD images, MameDev are now forced to reverse engineer Razoola's mind in order to get games preserved. Now that's dedication ;-)

PS - where the hell did the thread go?
It vanished into an SQL hole in the sky mid-post!
OG - if that's you, ease off please I'm only chatting! There's no flaming going on, or at least I didn't mean to start flames, I just wanted to find out how bad the relationship between Raz and everyone has got. Pretty bad by the looks of things :-(
But, okay I get the story now. You can lock away if it's bugging you :(
