I've rewritten MAWS, which you can find at http://www.ids.ca/mame/maws2.zip
It is a stand-alone app, written in Java, so it should run just about anywhere. See the readme file in the zip for how to configure. Currently it loads all data files on start up - so it will be
slow to start and consume a lot of memory. This may result in it not running in constrained environments (e.g. very old computer, raspberry-pi, etc). As a very rough estimate, assume you'll need about 750MB-1GB free RAM.
The coding was done largely without looking at the original MAWS code, so differences may exist. I've attempted to recreate the GUI, based on images from the wayback machine, with some tweaks to make better use of screen real-estate. The current feature set is largely due to BYOAC member feedback, with artwork from 8bitmonk, et al.

fwiw, the name MAWLER was chosen by members - i think we're still trying to figure out what it stands for
We've collected a decent assortment of guesses, which will be displayed on the splash screen and title bar.
screen shots and other details to come....
Screen shots added in subsequent posts below.
The one screen shot you need to get used to in the short term, however, the splash screen. You'll be seeing lots of this (thx 8BitMonk) due to the slow start-up:
