I'm wondering how to get multiple themes in the themes options menu... without changing all the data and restarting the program.

Get the latest patch, then download skins from modlink

You cannot use custom themes with Uplink: The Mod.

Besides, Uplink: The Mod has some storyline bugs (you can't play it) because of the hacked .exe

I only use the tifs, not the exe

So how do I do it without the mod?

I think you have to put the theme's folder in the Uplink folder.

From modlinks site,
"How to Install Uplink Mods
Once you have downloaded your Uplink mod, you need to use your zip program to extract the zip file into the directory you installed Uplink to. So if you installed Uplink to 'C:\Program Files\Uplink', then this is where you would need to extract the zip file.  "
there ya go

Perhaps I was not clear enough.

I don't want to install mods

I want multiple themes

...

1) www.uplink.co.uk.
2) Click "Downloads"
3) Get the latest patch (1.31?).
4) Install that.
5) Download any non-pre-v1.2 themes from modlink.net and unzip them to your uplink dir.
6) Run Uplink and in the main menu, choose Themes, all the ones installed should be listed there.

etc

Make sure the theme files are in a seperate folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\Uplink\Deus Ex). Extracting the "..."
folder with WinRAR to C:\Program Files\Uplink\ does this.

It should work with any program if you tell it to retain folder structure or something like that.
