I grabbed a copy just a few days ago, but it's 111.5. Don't recall exactly where I got it, but this one's dated 6.20.2008.

I've got a copy of the XML version (112) here:
http://www.waste.org/~winkles/ROMLister/controls.zip

sorry I didn't grab the .dat version at the time - that was for working in romlister.

Woogie said he was going to look into the database problem with the website.

On a related note how does Mala work with controls.ini?  I set the path.  I open the info and it says the game controls are not found.  Yes, I selected a game that was in controls.dat.
