Hello! Welcome to the Introversion forums. Be careful of the more established members, they bite. Why not try Darwinia and Defcon? They've got forums as well! (All accessible from here!)

Eugh, I hate Gametap! Mainly because I can't get it here, but that isn't the point.

Steam is the distribution software made by Valve (VERY well known for the Half Life Series and Counter Strike), and Uplink (as well as Defcon and Darwinia) has been placed onto this surface providing a way for people to buy it.

The latest patch can be found in The Latest Patch forum. It is in Beta though, so backup your game save first.

You should be able to enable full screen in the options. If you can't something funny is going on.

Have a nice day, and don't take anyone in this forum TOO seriously. And don't be surprised if this goes off topic in about 1 or 2 posts time.

What did you say about cheese!?

On a more serious note, if the version you've bought says that it's Uplink: Hacker Elite, return it to wherever you purchased it and buy it over Steam (a digital software distribution system) or straight from IV. Not only does this ensure that Introversion gets more money to make games, but it also ensures that the copy you own is compatible. Unfortunately, if you don't like using credit/debit cards over the net, then you're probably stuck with what you can buy physically (although both Steam and IV support Paypal, I believe, making it more secure). As an added bonus, if you buy a physical copy from IV, you get all the Bonus disk stuff.

On the DVD case discs you do (mine does).

I'll look what version it is.

Edit: On a side note, discs made after 1999 by mediamfg.com do.

My disc doesn't work. Coming to think of it. I don't think I've ever used my disc. D:

Edit: Oh thank god. It is just my Drive playing up. Oh wait, no, they're even more expensive to replace.

Guys!

What is the difference of UPLINK HACKER ELITE and UPLINK (NORMAL), is there some different missions? is there another story line? does it have better graphics?

Give me information, and where can i get it?

Thanks a lot

First post in this very forum thread Who's selling Hacker Elite? IV takes legal action...

It's _almost_ like Uplink, it's just _illegally_ sold and there is not guarantees that the official patches will install on it.

Why don't you do us all a favour, and go chop off your fingers?
