PS: It's really important that you prefer to use the "local" query since it's so much faster than the "global" one. That's why I'm insisting smile.

The global XML query may still be useful if you would like to add some functionality that's not in QMC2 yet, like certain queries you may offer to be executed on-demand (things like remax's request to get a list of games/machines that have software-lists associated with them, for example). But you should only use global queries in case of MESS!
