Re: Darwinia Beta Update Announcement

Not everyone is on Steam. Please provide proper patches for non-Steam players. And fix the website which has been broken since some date in 2016 iirc. Though my device doesn't meet its system requirements anyway. And I'd prefer to wait until the source code SVN gets updated, if ever. I'm somewhat di...

Re: Support for Prison Architect - Support Form is ded

But sometimes it is the only choice. What would you do if you want to purchase a retail package of any Introversion game? The company doesn't sell them since about 2016 iirc. But you can go to some place like Amazon or eBay, and buy it, some packages are even non-used. As for the support, I'm not su...

Re: Where's Wask?

Already played it though. On GNU/Linux it runs in DOSBox. However it seems pressing keys to skip things like "FIND THAT WASK" or "5 4 3 2 1 GO!" makes the game behave like they already ended (as in, e.g. pressing enter/return five times will insert a few empty (invalid) guesses)....

Re: Where's Wask?

Who are you explaining this for..? If you'd played the game you'd understand that my suggestion was nonsense . Even the joke itself is getting on a bit (a few years back any new tech thing was pitching that it would use the blockchain - even if there was no sensible reason to do so). These days it'...

Re: Where's Wask?

Clearly someone needs to port WW? to HTML5 or whatever technology is currently in vogue. Cryptocurrency is probably involved. It is weird it is called HTML5, when in fact it is HTML5 + CSS3 + JavaScript. But I have no idea what is the game about, maybe it could work without JS or CSS3. Not everyone...

Re: Where's Wask?

Admittedly I don't have a Windows machine to play it on (how's that Linux port coming, eh?). But you can use Wine I think, or Windows virtual machine if it doesn't work or has bad performance. Also Googling "Where's Wask?" gives only a single result. How is that even possible? Google won'...

Re: Mac CTD

For non-Steam users, please try Downloading the patched DEFCON here , and let us know here if the fix works for you. The download is offline. Any other source for the "Defcon macosx rc2.zip" patch file? Long story short, I bought the game for the mac via Ambrosia Software in 2007. It's an...

Re: 64-bit build of DEFCON access?

Maybe we could produce one with the source code that was released? Does the old Introversion storefront still exist? :/ The source code for the macOS versions of any Introversion Software games was never released (update: it seems Darwinia and Multiwinia can be built for macOS from the source code,...

If you mean using a virtual machine with older software versions (but I guess a 32-bit operating system with older compiler is enough) to build it, it should help.

Re: CounterAttack mission MIA?

Ah. Okay. Thank you for clearing that up! It was, in fact, that mention in the first email that was making me wonder what I was missing. So restart yet again and... 1) Accept ARC's offer without intending to work for them; and 2) Send the file to Arunmor when asked. I'd even tried hacking ARC for t...

Re: CounterAttack mission MIA?

:shock: Then why the heck are all the Congratulation emails for those first three missions from the Arunmor email address!? There is actually a mistake in the Tracer congratulation email, saying about the final mission regardless whether you are working for Arunmor. But for example, you can be work...

Re: Crash

There are different bugs in Uplink which might cause crashes, and sometimes crashes might be caused by incompatibility with other software (including the operating system) installed, and you didn't say anything about your setup. As for the bug reports, both Uplink and UplinkOS aren't developed anymo...

Re: CounterAttack mission MIA?

Where does ARCInfiltration appear? If it appears on the BBS, then you aren't working for Arunmor and so you can't get CounterAttack mission. To start working for Arunmor, you need to accept the offer from ARC when they first contact you, then wait 2 minutes without completing MaidenFlight, and send ...

Re: Onlink, aka Patch 1.6

Probably it is thread necromancy (but it is pinned, so I'm not sure), but there is an official patch 1.6, released somewhere in 2011, only available in GOG and Humble Bundle (and probably SendOwl/Introversion). It changes the default world map to the original one, removes DRM (code card and world.da...
