Re: Editing the save to prevent disavowement, anyone know how?

No, I found reports of a bug similar to this one and have hacked banks before; I've done testing and it didn't do that (Just 'pick up' an active trace where it left off after you disconnected and reconnected) on any other runs. That game was just buggy for some reason, and thus irritating despite th...

Re: Editing the save to prevent disavowement, anyone know how?

Bought Uplink (again) from GOG, having fun, and I think I got caught out by a bug attempting to hack a bank - First it wouldn't allow the transfer despite bypassing the proxy, then after I figured out that was probably a bug and tried it again, the bank picked up the trace only two hops from home (a...

Uplink Demo to Full Copy

Debian 64 bit; I knew how to do this at one time, but what I'm remembering of it isn't working. I have a more recent version from gog.com to replace my CD version. I've installed the 64bit deb file, and verified that the .dat files are identical between \usr\local\games\uplinkdemo and the version I ...

Demo has problem if registered game exists.

More to the point - if someone had a registered copy of uplink at one time, and the new Debian64 install find games in the .uplink folder on disk, the initial screen does not properly populate the various interface buttons, including the exit button. Fairly serious, because I was unable to exit via ...

All of those exist with the exception of world.dat - is that file not included in the Demo then?

Weirdness - I may just install from my old CD and upgrade. I got Linux running - that was the hard part.

No - not entirely me evidently. On Ubuntu, installing the Demo and adding the patch works - it accepts my CD info fine. On Windows (XP), adding the patch results in <bad ascii art> +--------------------------------------------+ |Uplink Error [X]| +--------------------------------------------+ | /!\ ...

Actually I figured it out - Embarrassing, but I was trying to install it from the Desktop. Should work, except some time ago, being a new Linux user I decided to protect myself by setting shell scripts to *not* run from the GUI. Evidently hadn't had as much need for that as I thought since I'd compl...

Or - um, not. My CD says it's has a linux compatible version, but nothing on here seems to actually run under Ubuntu - nor is the linux demo loading under Ubuntu. It says to unzip uplink.zip, but there actually is no uplink.zip in the linux folder?!? I was planning on Dual booting anyway in the near...

Quick Question re the Demo

Bought Uplink several years ago - got into but didn't finish the storyline, would like to restart and try again. There have been several patches since my original CD purchase, and what I remember at the time was that with a valid CD key I could simply unlock the Demo. Downloaded the current Demo, an...
