Hello,  I was just curious, if there is any word on wether or when the uplink source code will be made public? I know theres a dev CD but I'm not interested in buying one since I don't have the time or desire to programm mods.  However I am curious to see the code itself I'd like to know how some of things in the game are accomplished.

Maybe someone with the code could tell me.  One thing I'm interested in is how the dialog boxes and other windows where programmed as well as how there corrisponding click detection was accomplished.
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

IV said they were thinking of releasing the source to Uplink as opensource when they weren't making that much money from it anymore.

Some of the IV team then decided they wanted to release it earlier than that, so the modding community could grow even more, even though others in IV werent too keen on this idea!

Still, this is why the source was released this year in the form of closed source. Eventually, I think IV will release it as opensource, but not just yet!!!

Hope this helps.
