Epic manual is missing pages 25 and 26
Epic manual is missing (real) pages 25 and 26 (after page 14 in PDF count).
The manual on Josh's site has the same issue.
So if anyone happens to have it, a scan would be welcome.
Most interesting thing is why I decided to check the manual.
I was reading an article of TV tropes about Obvious Beta (ie games that are released before being rid of all/most bugs):
Among the examples, I noticed Epic was mentioned (in the PC section):
I looked on Lemon, where there is a text version of the manual, and you can indeed see the "FILL in later" part.
Back to the PDF manual, it looks like the French translator avoided the issue by skipping the entry for Ion (page 48-49)
However, the German translator was no slouch and therefore page 74 you can read as a definition of Ion:
Ein Partikel von "FILL IN LATER"
Well, if you consider that the game was not completely tested before release, it would probably explain the sound/music issues that I had posted about a while ago:
"Dancing plants are immortal" (s2325)
