I've not been on these forums in years!

I've noticed a load of people asking for the Redshirt tool, and it's been damn hard to find.

Well I think I may have the solution! I've got a version of it written by Miah (aka Kyuu). You can get it here. It's a drag/drop utility, so no horrible command line switches.

There's a Win32 binary available, as well as the source code, so it should be pretty easy to port across to other platforms.

It's really handy.. but it has a flaw. It only decrypts a part of the file. Maybe it has to do with some encrypted characters being an EOF instead of asciicode^128. Or something. It just didn't work for me.

I'm having a problem figuring out what this is used for...I know it hacks uplink somehow, but how??? What do I do? I decrypted a .usr file, but it just listed a bunch of ip's...is that all this does? I thought that it hacked your values, such as money and whatnot...can someone explain this to me?

It just decrypt the files, after that, after that you have to use a Hex editor to change the value, some page on the web describe how to do it, also in some post on this very forum (see http://forums.introversion.co.uk/uplink ... hp?t=36389 for example)

( Like I stated elsewhere I won't give a step by step guide )

Under 3 hours response time is not bad in my book.

Frenchfrog, when I said this is a late response but thanks, I was referring to my own response, not yours! :oops: Sorry about that misunderstanding
