    It was a lot more work updating FAW than I originally thought. ;)
    Whenever I was close to be finished a new EAW.exe was released and more work was needed, but since the new exe’s all had important improvements it was worth the extra work. :)

    A Big thanks goes to the guys in the EAW Code group that made the 1.28d FAW update possible, especially to:
    Knegel, MrJelly and Crashin' Jack.

    And the update had never been possible without the handy editors and the FAW Manager by MrJelly!

    I made the FAW update myself, but some other peoples work was included, please check the readme file for details.

    Thanks to all that have contributed! :thumbright:

    FAW is now available for download on the FAW page on my site.


    Cheers
