I thought that's what it was thanks, I've been trying to get my hands on it again for some time now...

At least now I'm sure of the name

Adding/removing opengl32.dll from your Uplink directory?

Slow?

Does it pause from time to time? (Uplink could be saving your agent file). Does it lag when you click on a button? Or is it just low frame rate?


EDIT: I just tested Uplink on my USB key and it's indeed slow (lots of pausing). It seems the OS is no caching Uplink resource files.

I remember doing this in 2004. Just extract all the data files to their proper folders and it'll speed up a lot.

data.dat just needs to be de-redshirted. For world.dat, there's nothing to extract.

Redshirt would be a utility you can find by searching the forums ;) I believe data.dat is encrypted with redshirt 2 in later versions, so an easy way to avoid that is to install an earlier version (e.g. 1.31) and use the data.dat from that install (there shouldn't be any changes to contents - all such changes are through patch.dat style files, I believe).

data.dat is encoded in redshirt version 1.

(From Uplink 1.49 and up the options file and the agent files are encoded in redshirt2 which add an SHA-1 checksum used to detect corrupted files.)

Ah, right, that's the trick.
