Cache Kill (by Moal-LST)

Slick & small Tool that while you play, takes care of cleaning your Cache from Novalogic Games.
Unpack it into your, for example Joint Operations Typhoon Rising Folder, or your AW2 Folder. After that you have in there a folder called “cachekill”. In there is a little application with the same name that you execute. It runs best if you start it after you start your Game. But you might as well also start it before you start your Game.
