I've been a fan of Uplink for years and have played the game a number of times, but not for a while. I'm about to start a new game and I was wondering what mods people suggest to enhance the game? A couple i've seen on Modlink have caught my eye but I was looking for some suggestions from the community.

Cheers.

Simply Uplink

I dont mean, Uplink on its own, it's a mod name.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but i'm having a problem with all the mods. Basically whilst Uplink 1.31 runs fine all the mods display black screens and to get anything to appear you need to run your mouse over them, but even then they only appear for a second and disapear again. I had this problem before with Uplink but it was fixed in a patch. System specs are:

Radeon x850 XT PE 5.13 drivers
Athlon 64 3500+
1gb RAM
DFI NF4 Ultra-D
Augidy 2 ZS

All are latest drivers.

Mods dont work with the Strategy First version :x

Directly from IV. The CD copy should be with my any day now, but for the moment i'm using the download from the site.

I can't really re-patch as the download comes as 1.31. I'll try it when the CD arrives though.

do you mean the full version as a download, or the demo, and if so i don’t think that mods will work with the demo, i don’t know though, as for downloading the full version, when did IV give the full game as a download off this site, did i miss something again???

I've said this before, but my version, which was bought in a shop in the USA, and has Strategy First printed on it, is able to use mods.

Yeah, the early SF versions do. They were just the same as v1 of Uplink. It's the later download version of HE, and the bundled/budget version that have problems.

It's the download offered by the IV s ite after you pay for Uplink which comes as version 1.31. I've got the disk now so i'll try installing the game that way and i'll use the mods that way.

On a seperate note how can i add the stuff like the FBI database etc to the main game without using the supplied exes as i'm assuming you can only use one mod at a time...
