I'm impressed Agito! You keep putting in people's ideas. I'm sure it will become a big mod.

As for the bug, it should be general.

It may seem cheap or take all of the fun out or whatever, but I'd like to see a really expensive program that has a good chance (maybe 5 programs, each adding 20% up to 100% or something) of stopping you from being traced while logged in, including LAN's.

Stopping the trace would mean stopping the game's fun.

For you, maybe. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Just please don't tell me how I should enjoy my single-player games (I've been over the cheating debate far too many times).

Also, I think the current version of SimplyUplink killed my Hardware Monitors as I can't load up my motion sensor or gateway nuke, though I have them. This is from a new game started with SU.

Gateway Motion Sensor? Gateway Self-Destruct? In your memory banks?

There's no gateway software listed.

Then you can't use it. I'm afraid you'll have to buy those hardwares again but this time, leave at least 2 spaces for it.

Hey ya'll

Just posted a quick fix you might want to download if you feel like it. There was a big with the mission list where the game would crash if the scroll bar ever appeared.

Anyways, I haven't really had time to come up with anything interesting on my own, but if you guys have any ideas I can implement them lickety split

So keep those ideas coming!!

I'm adding in deadlines for missions. Any suggestions for how this should work? Should you lose the mission if you're late for a deadline, or should you just get less of a rating boost.

Also do you think bargaining for deadline's would be any fun? I want to overhaul the mission bargaining interface a bit, it's a bit boring.

Let me know,
Agito

I think you should lose the mission and lose a rating (if the variable goes down one level) since the company can't find any use of it any more.

Agito, i Adore your work, keep it up =)

Deadlines...

When bargining, you should be able to ask for more money if you get it done within X amount of days:hours.

And if a deadline is missed, you lose some reputation with the company, you get an e-mail telling you that you have missed your deadline, and that you have X amount of hours to complete it, and you will get now X (eg 50% of normal pay) amount of pay because you didn't meet the deadline.

There should also be an e-mail mailed when you are 1 hour from a deadline.


<edit> I know this could be hugely annoying, but could you make some of the graphics compatible with 640x480? like the resign and some of the program window locations... if you can do that, thanks =) (my computer is VERY slow.) </edit>
I am using the signature i have in another forum right now.

While I'm here, I'd just like to say a big thanks to Agito for all the amazing work he has been doing.

I Run SU with no problems, but I can't find the Log Nuke anywhere, any clues?

Also, the deadline idea sounds good, especially for the story missions.

Is there any way to get rid of all the names on the world map? They make my PC really laggy and are not really needed. As long as the tooltips remain. Also, a new version of IP Lookup would be useful. I was thinking of one which gives you the option to highlight the entered IP in orange on the map, making it easier to find.

Also, Is there any way to see the game over screen before getting game over. Basically I would like to see how many lives i have ruined etc along with my uplink/neuromancer rating.

Thanks
