Summary0002560: support full caches
Descriptiondiscussions on mailing list:

From: Angus Manwaring
A few of us are looking at the 3D space opera Epic on comp.sys.amiga.games
Is there reason that you cannot tun the game with any caches?
Would it be possible for an update that allowed the cache tooltype. The
game is pretty good, but it could be a lot smoother especially when
there's a lot of objects on the screen - even on an 060.

From: Angus Manwaring
Again this is not a big deal as far as I am concerned as I'm not
passionate about this game, but just for information purposes, can anybody
confirm if the game (WHDLoad installed) actually gives you the codes to
the next mission after you have completed the current mission.
I've completed several mission, been promoted, got medals etc, but have
not seen any codes displayed.
I appreciate that there is a problem with the slave where you need to
complete 2 missions at one point but I'm not referring to that.
Thanks for any confirmations. :)
P.S. I think I'm going to have to re-read the Amiga Power review. :)

>AFAIR it doesn't give you code.
>From what I can tell, if you fail a mission, lose all your subsequent
lives continuing to fail the mission, and you watch the following cut
scenes and text closely, you will be given the code.
Most games would just give you the code for a level when you successfully
reach it, but I think this issue is just down to poor game design.
Probably like the mission text which isn't on screen long enough for me to
read it all. :)

CACHE Tooltype works.
The game crashes when you leave "Name & Callsign" empty !
(On Amiga 600 Furia V2 & Amiga Cd32 ProModule)

If you Type someting in "Name & Callsign" the game works with the CACHE function
