In the "eaw.ini" file there is a section which starts with "[Remappable Keys]".
To get the text for the lines in this section the eaw.exe reads a file named "REMAPABL.STR" and uses it to rebuild the "eaw.ini" file.

Last night CaptJ encountered a problem when we were flying at GameRanger. He appeared to have two different "eaw.ini" files when he wanted to make changes via the config screen because the text he saw when flying Moggy's IRAQ was different from the text he saw when flying the default theatre.
The cause of the difference was that in Moggy's IRAQ there is a "REMAPABL.STR" file which the exe was reading. It is dated 7th November 2007 and it is shorter than the default 160 version which is in the "GameData" folder.
To solve this and potential future problems UAW160 users need to find all instances of "REMAPABL.STR" in their UAW160 folder and delete them all except for the one in the "GameData" folder.

I am now of an age at which I no longer need to suffer fools gladly

A slit trench at RAF Gravesend
Yes, I have noticed that there were older and different versions of eaw.ini. Presumably the older ones don't have the latest additions and tweaks. Funnily enough yesterday I got a CTD when trying to make chages via the config screen in 128C-2020. So I need to go on a REMAPABL.STR hunt.
