Is there anyway to download the full uplink game for linux?

I already got the full uplink game on disk and got the code card.

According to this, there should be a Linux version on that CD.

Where did you get yours?


If you do find the Linux installation, don't forget to patch it!

I got my uplink game back in 2001/2002.

P.S.

My laptop does not have cd room drive anyway.

My Uplink Linux file that was on the disk was last Modified 17 Feb 2002.

I got uplink.zip.

I ran the patch (uplink-patch-1.54.sh)

This icon does not work.
