Help with losing the FBI [spoilers]

Postby Kazurik » Tue Aug 29, 2006 6:02 am

Hey I know someone is going to say "have you tried the search feature" and no I havent. I have no idea what I would search for.

Either way my problem is that right after I get the darwin files from there lan I can not seem to get rid of the FBI. I copied the .usr files as I was getting sick of losing. I have tried deleting the logs at the lan and at the first node but still I always get caught. I have even tried uploading the Revolution virus to every computer and they still get me. What am i missing?!

Thanks for any help

Are you sure the backup file you made is clean i.e. you hadn't already be caught, since there is a delay between them catching you and you being told of your conviction? Have you tried logging into your account after its been disinvowed? It will tell you what company caught you.

Chances are that you either got actively traced at some point, your safe node was beyond the point where an active trace left off, or you failed to use v4 log_deleter to break your connection chain.

In the future, you could try also buying motion_sensors and gateway_self_destruct.

Don't bother deleting the logs at the LAN, use internic as the first bounce point and delete the logs there, with V4 log deleter. Also, there is a hints and tips forum.

I am pretty sure they never got an active trace off, and I always use a v4 log deleter, I delted all the logs at the lan and at InterNic. I have the motion sensor and self destruct but I dont really want to blow it up.

Its possible you're using a dirty usr i.e. its already been traced passively and any gameplay you get out of the backup usr is just the delay between completely the trace and making the conviction.

Try activating your motion sensor, then speeding up time a little bit. If time slows back to normal and you see your motion sensor turn red, warning you of multiple entities nearby your gateway, you know you're about to be caught. Approximately... maybe... thirty seconds after it turns red, you will be disavowed by Uplink. Do this twice - once, just simply activating the motion sensor and speeding up time, and the second time, go into your safenode and delete the route logs, then speed time again, etc. etc. So you know, you should ONLY delete the route logs. If you delete... well, pretty much anything else, they'll get'cha. Make sure you're ONLY deleting the route logs, or you'll get in trouble. Hope this helped, even though I somehow doubt it will. I've never been very helpful.

First off, please note that the last comment in this thread above your own was made over a year ago. You have bumped a very old thread. Unless you have something of cosmic importance to say, that is not something that is approved of. Don't bump old threads.

Second off, you are incorrect in your assertion that deleting things other than bounce logs will get you caught. You can delete any log you want. As long as you delete your bounce logs, you will be fine.
