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. :thumbsup:

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! :thumbsup:

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

Cheers
