Those settings printed here by the very counterproductive user named 'primevalea' would affect the lot sizes for orders deployed between May 2009 and July and also for the entire May 2010. It is in fact a good thing that the lot sizes get smaller, they shrink with about 60% for that periods, minimizing the risk. It has nothing to do with the bot's engine. These settings are present in both version 1.16 and 1.2.
There is no scam. It's only 'smart' and frustrated people that carry on looking for faults instead of studying and testing what conditions must be met in order that MDP would give the profits it was build for. So far I spent a few tens of euros for opening various broker accounts, opening VPS services, depositing and withdrawing money, paying commissions and taxes. I made myself an idea, I read other users opinions and advices and I can say FOR NOW that it's good to have MDP running.
By the way, as a personal finding, I reckon that 1.16 works better than version 1.2. I suspect this is because version 1.2 has an acceptable stop level of 3 pips while version 1.16 works fine only for brokers allowing minimum 2 pips for stop levels.
