R. Belmont: also, picky little bitches like this 'demo tester' are exactly why I submit no driver before it's time. I run fucking screen-split demos and still he tasks me.

No problem! :-) ... some other emus like GSport or ActiveGS run "fucking screen-split demos" too + some of those still problematic !
So it does not matter - forget it! (only the damage is time spent on testing)

PS. And I always thought that MESS runs / strives to the accuracy! (obviously I was wrong)
