No, no.  Thats a good idea.  We just need to put our heads together and think of a cool way for this to make sense.

Maybe you could have it so that you only know his username.  That could open up a whole new branch of the mission.  You'd have to obtain an "agent list" Uplink style.  I know that that imitates and uplink mission almost to a "T"; but hey, go with what works.

Of course, that could be a little too complicated for an early mission.  So....um....yeah.

The hacker may be annoying the company because he framed some guys from that company for hacks or whatever :P

Ok, I'll think about it.

But remember - in the first Beta, there won't be missions. There will only be software purchase, file management (you can hack and steal files), trace tracking and IP bouncing. Only enough to make your first, very simple, Uplink style hack (steal/delete file).

Baby steps, man.  Baby steps.

The file management is finished!!!!
I once rewrote it completely, from scratch, and after hours of debugging on it, it's finished!

As it was the one of the hardest sections in the entire game, the Beta is now very near.

Yayp, I'm here.

I'm working on it. I said "the end of september" - so don't complain until October 1st, ok?

I'll have a web-site soon. When it'll be on, I'll inform you about it, and this thread will die. All the talk will go to the forum on my web-site.
The beta will also be free to download from there.

Yeah.  Can't wait for the site.

As for the beta.  I'll hold my tounge until October 1st.

Ok, I need an advice - how to do the trace calculations.
What I have is:

Every company has a trace speed, from 1 to 6.

The calculations (in seconds):
10 + Bounces * 10 - 5 * Company.TraceSpeed

If the result is less than 10, it becomes 10.

(Note that the normal amount of bounces is 3-5, and not 10-20, like in Uplink)



Any better ideas?






P.S. Even if you'll give the advice after the beta will be out, I'll still be able to change it for the final version.
