I just barely finish a mission and when I try to send a reply e-mail, the game crashes due to a fatal error.  I re-installed a few times, and got back to the ratings i had and it's still doing it.  Can anyone help me?

Can you post your system specs? It helps a lot.

It is a CD that has the game source code (and has nothing to do with the problem).  You may have a corrupt user file.  I you keep getting these kinds of errors try starting a new user (you can delete the usr file in the Uplink/users directory to use the same agent name again).  :)

So you mean the cd in the uplink box I bought at the store?  Well I tried that, becoming a new user with that name, but the same thing happened at about the same point.

No the DevCD is something different, you don't need to worry about it.  I would recommend getting the latest patch (1.31) from this website, but that disables the cheats.  ;)

Well in that case, there is no reason not to patch.  Forget I said anything about cheats.  :)

It is generally left up to user to figure that out for themself.  Plus we cannot give away spoilers on the boards.  No to mention you've already figured out everything I know about the cheats.  :)
