Well, I guess technically they are not "physically" out of reach, in that there is a single line connecting each lock to each of the other 3 locks (2 Subnets and 1 Iso Bridge). The problem is I cannot connect to those remaining locks even though there is a physical connection to them . And...

Interesting that you call it "lazy" as there is nothing about what you did (and the steps you took/risks) that was lazy...

Some "randomly generated" LANs un-hackable?

I have been attempting, multiple times, to hack a particularly troublesome LAN as part of a Copy Database mission. After attacking it from 2 different entry points (first the Router, then a Modem) I still cannot breach the 3 Locks that protect the Main Server. I have hacked every possible thing I ca...

I read the UUG pages (thanks for link) and it seems there are 2 endings: 1 where the game ends (Internet destroyed) and one where the virus is stopped but your Gateway is destroyed. It seems one can, if credits are willing, buy a new gateway and keep playing? Or does your agent get caught regardless...

Possible to never start Storyline?

I read that if the Storyline starts, you're basically on a countdown to Endgame. I was wondering if it's possible to ignore the Storyline and/or avoid starting it to begin with, thereby being able to play as long as you want (with same character)? Thanks

I usually use InterNIC to list all of the Public Access Servers in the game, and then use those as bounce points, starting (of course) with InterNIC. This creates a path of about 30+ bounces and is usually enough to where the audible "pings" of a trace are very far apart. Whatever works f...

you should only really need to connect once then use the save route function, takes out all the guess work This. When I start a new game, the first thing I generally do is create an account at every bank (having an account on a server slows down traces), then create a bounce path that starts at Int...

How to skip/ignore the storyline and play "forever"

Hello. I tried to do a search but only turned up posts about how to START the storyline. What I'd like to know is how to skip/forgo the Storyline so that the game doesn't end?
Thanks!

LAN Viewer display "messes up" graphics

I am running XP, and I have an ATI Radeon 9600 XT 128. Latest DirectX 9.0c The game runs pretty flawlessly at 1024x768x32. However, when I connected to a LAN for the first time, and brought up the LAN_HUD_Viewer, my security camera bar and my trace tracker bar began flickering. Then, when I click on...

If you don't feel like looking for it you mustn't be very motivated to get it, so why should we go through the effort of the looking it up for you? Stop being lazy, look it up yourself and learn how to use capital letters. Isn't being lazy the whole point of being a hacker? Looks like Uplink has ru...

On the subject of Banks, I have a question about Passive traces. Suppose I log into an account that I already have the user/pass for, and never run any Bypassers or anything. It's all legit so far. Does the Bank automatically Passive trace all connections? I was thinking that if I wait until the Tra...

"Transfer was not completed. Please contact the Admin..

I recently attempted to Transfer money from an account (with 1 million in it, but I wanted 800k of it) into mine. I bypassed the Proxy (at L5), but already had the Account password from earlier mission, so didn't need Monitor. I even checked if the million was still there, and it was. I went to Tran...
