Well, I've installed the patch, downloaded a mod, unzipped it to my Uplink directory, loaded the game..and there's nothing new at all in terms of the new gateway I downloaded.

What did I forget to do? (if anything)

Hm. Not entirely sure about this (dunno if it was fixed in 1.3) but you might have to start a new user.

Also, make sure that the mod creates a folder for the gateways (for more info on the gateways, check Icepicks site, Modlink).

Well, I checked the directory and the gateway was placed in C:\Windows\Program Files\Uplink\graphics\gateway  ..Made a new user, too...that changed nothing, so I went to that site you told me to visit and got something about a missing girl, so now I'm even more lost than I was before.

I thought I did everything right. :(

when you unzip the files to the uplink directory you may have to go down a few subfolders before you do it. You need one folder called data (in the uplink directory) for the gateways and one called grafics. Inside both of these folders put another folder called gateway. Put the two tif files for the gateway you downloaded in uplink/grafics/gateway and the text file in uplink/data/gateways.
Hope this helps


Also WTF is going on with this paperback writer is it a lame attempt to improve his rating or to invoke senseless rage and annoyance in all of us.

EDIT: Rant about paperback writer

I wanted to see people's reaction; call it a test of social dynamics.

I don't mind testing social dynamics - but posting a senseless message on almost every topic I've read - is annoying.
Stop it, please.

Spamming a board is just wrong, it annoys all the users.  Well, all the users that count, anyway.

Would you beat up an old lady in the street to test the reaction of the people around?

actually if you go to a city like new york that would be an interesting expirement. hmmm........ now i just need to find an old lady to volunteer for it. or i could get an old lady costume and have someone dress up. and see what people do and how they react, i could videotape, and use it in my sych class, as a study on social behavior, adn i could add a cool little disclamer saying no old ladys were harmed in the making of this video, but steve on the other hand is still nursing bruises and bumps.  steve would be the guy in the suit, so all in all it would be a decent expirment, then i could do the same thing in a smaller town like red hook, or highland. and compare the different reactions, adn see if behavior is really dependent on the type of society that you live in. well now i just have to get approval from my teach and ill let you know how it goes.
