How do I tell Uplink which sound device to use? (Linux)

Well, it pretty much boils down to this question: How do I tell Uplink which sound device to use? (Linux) That is: I have two sound devices: a USB headset and a sound card. Most of the time, Uplink puts its sound on the headset but I'd like to have it on the sound card. Is there something that I can...

Well, the font is definitely much nicer to look at, but it still suffers from the problem of being just a little too big. Too big? Make that too small - on my (linux) system. ;) As I said: with the anti-aliasing the text is hard to read. But making the font-size user-configurable would be an excell...

The font library provide 2 ways to render the fonts, Bitmap which give the ugly result of 1.49, 1.50 or pixmap which gives the result of 1.51 (kind of anti-alising). I didn't find the previous versions so ugly - but nevermind :) You don't have to throw away your agent if it's been created in 1.31 a...

There is no way to turn the font anti-aliasing off, it's directly build-in the font library. That is, only a developer could turn it off by setting some kind of flag when using the font library? Or are you using a different font lib than in the other versions which can't switch of anti-aliasing? As...

Hi! I just tried out the new patch (upgrading from a newly installed 1.31) on SUSE Linux 10.1; I run the game with 1280x1024 in windowed mode on a 1600x1200 laptop display - and the new font (?) looks nice enough, however: the anti-alisasing (?) makes the texts in smaller font sizes quite blurry and...

No, that's not the case: The file could be copied OK under mysterious (and rare) circumstances.

File copier won't copy

I also have a problem with the file copier (using the Linux 1.31 Demo): Downloading a file works just fine - but then I have to select a memory slot to copy the file into. (weird concept - where's the file after being downloaded but before being copied to memory? Hanging in thin air? But whatever......
