For those interested, I continue to use Famulus on Windows 10, both Home and Corporate editions.

I added the commands famulus and "famulus ini" to manually add/edit commands and settings (and use the mouse less). This is a great find. Thanks, dmg.

An update from my first comment, if you follow the instructions above, the filesize drops to 538kb! :)

To save space, if you don't use sounds, uncheck "Sounds" in the settings and delete the "sounds" folder. Also, delete the "source" folder if you don't plan on modifying the source.

After deleting those folders, you're left with a nifty 846kb launcher!
