Deleting a file

Postby dub » Mon Sep 04, 2006 7:07 am

I've got an issue with a pretty early mission. :oops:

It's asking me to delete a file on a Knight server... yet I've browsed (and deleted) all files on all the Knight servers and the file that I've been asked to delete is just not there (so I can't complete this mission)...

any ideas?

hmmm, wrong sever? (companies have multiple servers)

Perhaps you need to scroll down to see all files on the server.

Yeah, as said in my first post, I tried all the companies servers. Only two of the companies servers have files on them...

Guess I'm going to have to start a new game again :[

Presumably you tried replying that you completed the mission, right?

Yeah. Get a reply mail saying that according to the 'job givers' info the file is still available.

I guess you could email your agent (*.usr) with instructions to *** as username and *** as server so I could investigate.

Thanks for the help. I decided though, to just start a new profile as I had'nt really gotten far.

Bad luck dude.

I had the same issue once; was told to delete a file on a server but when I got there, the entire file server was empty! In this case though I simply replied to the email and got the payment without doing any actual work, which is what's supposed to happen if the modlink guide is correct. Not sure why it didn't work for you, except a random bug perhaps?

I have the same issue now. I got two missions for deleting a file. Both files aren't on the server. I've deleted all and replied that i've completed the job. It worked for one job, but the other is still not completed. The problem is i can't do any other missions, because my level is too low.

Both jobs where beginner jobs, so i don't think it's neccesary to hack into another system and bypass proxy and firewall. Is there any other solution to this?

1) advance the time, new missions should appears.

2) what version of Uplink are you playing? (steam or not)? (get the latest beta patch)

3) I guess you could email your agent (*.usr) with instructions to *** as username and *** as server so I could investigate.

Well, the problem solved itself. I sped up the time and got a message i was caught hacking in the past and my account was destroyed. I've started all over again (was only a couple of missions) and now the problem doesn't occur anymore.

Thanks for you help though.
