Steam version v. other version

Postby bowenit » Fri Dec 31, 2010 5:47 am

Steam has given me version 1.54 of uplink. I can't get some things to work out right. such as the hud proxy bypass. There doesn't appear to be anyway to get it to fire up, yes I started the program, just can't get it to go. Also after getting the HUD, my proxy disable seems to work but when updating Social Security I don't get a responce. No "Proxy must be disabled" or confermation that it went through.

Is there a difference in steam v. regular windows version?

no, they are exactly the same, first, the proxy bypass, this is where most people go wrong, there is a tutorial in game on the uplink ISS on how to use it, i suggest you take a look as it will reveal what you need

second. the social security database does not give confirmation that the data has changed, if there is a problem like the proxy is still up then you will be alerted, if there is not a problem then there will be no messages when you change the data.

Forgive my stupidity, but what is ISS?

Also there is, at least on mine, a confirmation stating data has been changed.

the ISS is the server where you get missions and software from uplink

and which server gives the confirmation, the GCD the social security or the education server?
