--------------------------------------------------------------------
       Simon the Sorcerer 2 Update 5 (31st January 2001)
           * Free from Distribution Restrictions *
--------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the fifth Update for Amiga Simon the Sorcerer 2. The update
is intended to optimize gameplay, provide extra features and solve
certain compatibility issues.

Update 5 (31st January 2001)

  * Fixed some Sound problems. It is strongly recomended that you
  reinstall the game or re-copy the contents of "data/voices" from your
  CD to your Hard Drive. A bug in Update 4 caused the game to corrupt
  some of the sounds files.

Update 4 (13th January 2001)

  * New Amiga build based on the latest sources after the
  recent Macintosh Simon 2 relase.

Update 3 (16th December 2000)

  * Solved a slow Loading/Saving bug which was introduced in
  Update 2 while trying to solve the ASL problem.

Update 2 (14th December 2000)

  * Improved Locale/Language loading. Locale loading is more
  than 10 times faster. This cuts approx 5 seconds from the game startup
  and makes in-game Locale change almost instant. This also avoids some
  potential animation glitchs that can occur when switching language.
  This is obviously not something that is done often but the 5 second
  speed-up at start is good.
  * Changd the ASL code in another attempt at solving Requester
  issues with OS 3.9 and some versions of ASL Library.

Update 1 (12th December 2000)

  * Added Sound cache to improve performance in scenes where the
  same sounds are reused frequently.
  * Improved keyboard input by using Queued input for all keyboard
  entry. Now key presses are guaranteed to be caught. The keyboard
  queue only holds one key at a time to avoid accidently pressing
  (for example) Space bar 10+ times.
  * Attempted to fix a ASL requester problem which makes Saving
  an Loading impossible with some versions of ASL.
