Anyone ever thought to redshirt data.dat and copy that wordlist.txt to the dictionary hacker's wordlist? where is the dictionary hacker anyway?

Sounds like it might just screw the game up - though then again I know very, very, very little about any kind of programming so don't worry about listening to me too much :) :D

One day, I shall learn programming though... And then the world will tremble in fear... Mwahahah! *cough* *splutter* *cough*

That would be very interesting.  Except that's not necessary when you the fastest computer in the game.  (It takes less than 1 second to crack a PW with that kinda equipment).  Nevertheless, your idea is interesting, I'll try it.

Thats a very good idea, if you have the balls to do so. But I have a better one. Why not just change it so that there is only one password there? Then that will be that password to most places.

And plus when you get a good gateway you always find the password in a few seconds, so the dictionary hacker is completly useless.

I've never bothered using the dictionary hacker, I never saw the point in getting it seen as most of the passwords aren't dictionary words anyway

There is no point. Its a waste of time as it doesnt find the password most of the time anyway.
