Greetings fellow agents,

I've been away from the Uplink community for a few months now, and I recently got back into Uplink, and when I came to the site to download the latest patch and check the forums, there's alot of new things floating around and I'm trying to figure them all out. What's the purpose of these LANs people are making, and how do you use them? I've pretty much figured out all the other mod stuff, although I'm still hazy on how you use most of them.

I'm also a little curious about what people mean when they mention "redshirting" the various game files? Sorry if I'm sounding a little n00b, but I figure the best way to eliminate my ignorance is to ask. Thanks for putting up with my uselessness! :)

Welcome back, then.

The LANs are for new challenges, you simply place them in the /Data/lans/ folder, then you'll find them in InterNic when you login your user.
Redshirting is a lameo was to resurrect your disavowed user. You can find it on www.modlink.net
Any other questions, i'll be happy to answer, we were all n00bs at one point, after all...

Redshirt is not a way to resurect you user, that is impossible.  Redshirt is a weak encryption method used by Introversion to obscure usr files and some other game files.  The program that encodes and decodes this is also called redshirt.  :)

erk, sorry. I was thinking of the cheapo prog that merely copies the file. My bad... :P

Thanks for correcting the idiot...

Anyway I can find that for a Mac?
