Mech Rename guide
This is a little command line utility I wrote to easily change the
name of my User Varients, because I was tired of launching Norton Disk
Edit every time.

Usage:
MEKNAME mekfile.MEK ["new mech name"]

If you don't give it a new name, it'll report the current name:

C:\> mekname smn01usr.mek
Reading mech name from smn01usr.mek...
Current name: Falcon Killer

Or you can give it a name, and it'll change the name.

C:\> mekname smn01usr.mek "Wolf Buster"
Changing mech variant name in smn01usr.mek...
Old name: Falcon Killer
New name: Wolf Buster

If you have any problems with the program please let me know. As
always, I take no responsibility if it screws up your custom mech
files, so always be safe and make a backup before editing.
