Frame a user for destruction of data - weird

Postby metzer » Tue May 30, 2006 4:39 am

I'm trying to do one of these missions.

I set up a chain of 5 or 6 servers and delete the data (cd usr & delete), then I modify the InterNIC log to point to the intended victim (and remove my access record). Then they arrest the guy - but I don't get paid because he was arrested for the wrong crime? What's the deal? This is the second or third time I've tried one of these, and I keep getting the same results - I am not caught, the victim is arrested, but for the wrong reason.

This is really frustrating.

What does the mission tell you to do and what is the person arrested for?

Maybe I am getting you wrong, but you might want to try
cd usr
delete
cd log
delete
cd sys
delete
shutdown

And don't think they can't trace now, my experiences has shown out they always can...

Note: If you delete logs from the Console, it only uses an equivalent v1 Log Deleter!

Is it even nessecary to delete the logs from the serve you hack if you plan to break the passive trace at InterNIC?

Nope, you only need to delete the logs from one server... And InterNIC is the best place to delete logs from.

good to know, i usually tried to disguise my logs in the system i hacked. i would delete everything except for the connection log event. that would just leave the connection event and the disconnect event in their logs. then i would clear the logs out at InterNIC. good to know that i dont need to worry about any logs except InterNIC now, that'll get me extra time.

The actual arresting confuses me, sorry. I just don't usually do those missions, I don't usually do any that don't work. Sometimes a mission doesn't work right a certain time I play through, but on other times it does.

Its most likely because you failed to fast forward after doing the mission in order for the arrest of someone or destruction of a computer to hit the Uplink news server. Also, don't delete the transaction logs on the balance transfer missions before replying.

If you use the new patch (1.47 I think) the bank tranfer missions work fine now

Personally I have never done those missions, they are too risky, i stick to ruining lives coz it is easier and faster if you stack them but are you sure you are doing exactly as the mission requests? if so, is it the right server? XP Sorry if these don't help but it's worth a try
