CD Product Code

Postby Demosthenes_00 » Thu Nov 04, 2004 11:04 pm

I bought the game online and didn't recieve the product codes they ask for in the beginning... the Row Z, Column 1 = 00 stuff, its annoying as hell to sit there and type 00 01 02 03...to 99 every time I want to create a new profile. I'm not completely sure this isn't just part of the game but if it really is a CD Code could someone tell me what the codes are for future reference? I'd greatly appreciate it.

it's quite obvious you didn't buy anything.

If you're a win-user, it should be obvious what to do.

If you're a mac user, you just dlded the code card and didn't understand the code card only worked for windows.

I can solve your problem though: just go to http://www.uplink.co.uk/orderonline.html if you are using windows, go to https://secure.ambrosiasw.com/cgi-bin/s ... &item=2710 for mac

Clearing up the matter

Postby Demosthenes_00 » Sat Nov 13, 2004 2:43 am

Okay, obviously I haven't made myself clear. I DID buy the game online from http://www.trygames.com and after a 60 minute trial period I decided that I liked the game and bought it. Their procedure was to receive electronic payment by credit card and I would get a verification code for the game and follow up email. I got all that but THATS IT. No case, no CD. For those of you who choose to be stuck up arrogant assholes and accuse me of "stealing" the game or whatever you're thinking...screw you. Leave this topic now because your cynicism is NOT wanted. Those who are willing to help I most gracoiusly appreciate your efforts. Thank you again in advance.

That means you, Agent Absolute.
And demosthenes, I have heard of this trygames.com, but the problem is, their version of Uplink came from Strategy First, which is the American publisher of Uplink. SF filed for bankruptcy a few months ago and since then, have not been paying royalties to Introversion. I don't know if there's anything you can do, or we can do, to help. And one last thing, demosthenes, lose the attitude and the profanities, because that kind of attitude is NOT wanted here.

There is a pdf file that came with your download. I suggest you read it as it contains the information you require.
Also, do not patch it, as it is the lastest version and if you patch it you crash it.

bhsieh,

there was no additude until I was accused of stealing software so do me a favor and don't reprimand me for expressing my thoughts...which were justified. if i had UNjustifiably freaked out on someone then I wouldn't care but I'm a bit touchy when I'm falsely accused of things.

Well, when people come on our forums and ask for a code it tends to be a retarded warez monkey type.

Don't know why they do it though. Would you go on Valve's forums and demand a s/n for Half-life?

So you are likely to get huge amounts of hostility from us. In my case especially, as I bought the game and decided to see how easy it would be to warez it. It's easy. If you have to come on the forums asking for help where to get a code card, then perhaps you should try thinking on your feet.

Do you mean a keygen?
If you bought the game, then no matter. I have a typed copy of my code card, as I keep the real one with the cd in a box under my bed - far too much effort to retrieve it when I want to play.

A downloadable full version? I've not heard of this before, are trygames a legit site? They should provide you with the Codecard, but, did they seek IV's permission before distributing Uplink? Never heard of it before

Hello!

I warezed Uplink before I bought it. But hell, I only ACTUALLY used the CD version once, far easier to redownload instead of try and find the CD again.
(And yes, then came the bastard who nicked my CD >=()

Are there no friends or family members you could ask? :roll: :)
Don't wonder, whether your data has been changed ... ;-)
