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

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

    I made the FAW update myself - except for the FM/DM update which Knegel did - but some other peoples work was included, please check the readme file for details.

    Thanks to all that have contributed! :)

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