Topic: Does active trace progress affect a passive trace?
Replies: 6
Views: 3226

A passive trace begins when the active trace starts. They're just a lot slower. Basically it's an invisible active trace that uses the log files of the servers to track you. I verified this by using banks. Since they have the fastest passive traces. I think that's not the question, but I don't know...

What they are saying is that other Uplink agents may screw around with company systems and such, but they do not change anything about your records. Although I had one "Trace a hacker" mission and I wasn't able to accept it. My first guess is that it was about tracing me . Is that true? If...

Two weeks isn't really old in this forum, so it's alright. Also, in mid-game you often get "Copy large database" missions. Yes, you would need a lot of back and forth trips, but once you've done it and got the precious cashmoneys, you can simply delete all of that stuff (just go to the con...

And by the way, LANs are not shown in the InterNIC list. It wouldn't make sense either. To access LANs and mainframes, you need to hack into the Internal Services Machine (which is very easy) and add the links it offers. I've seen some mentions of "good" or "bad" jobs that affect...

Pretty much, yeah. You could get money by breaking into a bank, but that's even more difficult since you would need a Proxy Disabler/Bypass 5.0 (if I recall correctly) and a good log deleter.

Soooo, yes, you're screwed.

I have the same problem, but not only with the Steam version, but also the one that's sold directly on the Introversion website. The problem is that all mods I can find need a folder system with, for example, a "data" folder. However, there is only data.dat, not a folder. Sooo... How do yo...

BTW, is it true that systems you have an admin account on are better for bouncing than ones where you simply have a user account? Because if that's true, Internal Services Machines are best for early-game bouncing. Once you have the Monitor Bypass v5, you can simply use it, crack the password and di...

Hacking a bank for the first time, transferring a huge amount of money to your own account, deleting all the necessary logs and fast forwarding, hoping that noone will catch you. And the triumph when they don't. Hacking a LAN system for the first time. That siren is incredibly scary. The news after ...

What do you mean by "giving away" the user data? Where do you publish it? I know I can tamper with all their files, but how do you get them killed?

Hacking into the Government systems

So, as we all know, the Government Public Access servers doesn't list the administrator, so I can't call him for the voice sample I need. I did manage to crash the Internal Services Machine and now I wonder if that was the right thing to do. Where is the data on the Government administrator? Did I j...

I have no idea what would happen, so backup your user files before you do it. If you have the Steam version, it's in /Steam/steamapps/common/uplink/users.
Yes, it's cheating, but if you want to be safe, that's the only way. Backup your save files regularly!

Open source is all well and good, but I am rather sad to see that you won't be working on this game very much anymore. I really hope this can be streamlined into one "official" version instead of people taking the source code and making dozens of versions. Also, yes, I don't think Uplink c...

Looking through some of the suggestions (especially the one about agents ratting you out), I remembered Liberal Crime Squad .

Okay, I now know that this is a LAN thing, so I did what the guid told me and I'm stuck at the main server. They told me to delete everything. I deleted everything on the file server. However, that apparently wasn't enough. I deleted usr. I deleted sys. Still not enough... What am I doing wrong? BTW...

Hmm, what do you mean by "prehack"? Get admin rights on all of them? So, the best bouncing points are internal service machines?
