Yet another Game Bible Thread

OK, so, I've got this zip file, and it's all kinds of password protected. I take a look at the case for the game (had to get a friend to take a few pictures of it, because I keep all my CDs in a wallet) And I get what I think must be the password. Only no dice. I've tried it with and without punctua...

Wait, so when is Chris going to scale Mt Everest? :D

Yep. Hey, I didn't mean to sound like an ass, incidentally. I'm sure you didn't mean any harm by it.

Sorry about that. Missed the date. I'll try to be more careful about that in the future.

OK, so noone here works for Introversion, right? And there was some indication at one time or another that people who do work for Introversion were at least somewhat interested in doing a sequel. Then they came out and said they weren't going to do a sequel. Which means as of right now, no sequel is...

As I understand it, copyright law requires that you do more than just give credit to the original copyright owners. It requires that you get their permission. I don't think Jick's likely to be a jackass about the use of his KOL graphics, especially if you're not making any money off of them, but per...

well, Gibson is kind of an icon, but there are better authors out there, in my estimation. The Game of Ghost and Lion, by Peter B. Gillis, is an excellant choice, but I'm not sure if that's available as anything other than an E-book. For that matter, I'm not sure if it's available as an E-book anymo...

Actually, I haven't done a trace hacker mission yet, mostly because I've noticed that when I do missions that target individuals, my Neuromancer rating gets worse, and fast.

Am I hosed? (Quite possibly very SPOILERISH)

OK, this is my first time really playing through Uplink. I'm not using any spoiler sites, (OK, just a little. I participated in one semi-spoily conversation here, and part of it involved skimming over the big spoily site, but I didn't actually spoil myself.) and I'm having a really good time of it. ...

There is a use for the records section already. Think what you could do with user accounts. Lot's of things! just not things you're normally doing.

Neuromancer, not Necromancer. That's where Neuromancer Rating(unofficial) comes from.

Glad there are still people who appreciate good cyberpunk out there.

Does it also give credit for the graphics you borrowed from asymmetric publications? They're the company that makes Kingdom of Loathing, where you nabbed that keen drawing of the Knoll.

Oddly enough, after combing through that site, I was unable to find anything about freeing arrested hackers as well.
