I have a question about installing LANs...I get errors

The subject says it all. I put the *.txt files for the LANs that I downloaded into the directory:
C:/Program Files/Uplink/data/lans

Then I ran Uplink.exe and clicked on "New User" I connected to the Uplink Public Access Server, like you normally do when creating a new user, but after I dialed in, I got a runtime error, and the game closed. I made sure all the lans where made correctly (i think) and i made sure that all the IPs of the lans were different (cuz that would cause a problem...not sure if it'd be a runtime error, though). Then i tried again and i got the same error. Someone who's good with this, please help me out! What am i not doing?

Edit: I just tried it again and took note of what the error message said. The title of the alert box was "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library" and the message itself was:

Runtime Error

Program: C:/Program Files/Uplink/uplink.exe


abnormal program termination

There are guides that should tell you how to install your LANs. They're either at ModLink or at AWOL's site (search the forums for a link).

I read the lan making guide on modlink carefully (a little more then i needed to know, cuz i dont make lans, i just need to install them). I installed my lans correctly, tryed to make a new user, and the same thing happened.....I'm having a major "WTF????" moment.....

There's one of two things I know of that may be causing the error:

1) You are running a non-Introversion version of Uplink, one from Strategy First, who altered their version and is incompatible with mods.

OR

2) You are running Introversion's version without the 1.31 patch. Download the patch here.

OMG!! I AM SOOOOO THANKFUL THAT I COULD HUG YOU.....which would be kinda creepy, so i'll stop talking now....lol.......i'm not crazy.......


Well, all insanity aside, I'm very VERY thankful. I was running version 1.3, not 1.31. I just got the game a week ago, so I assumed it came with the patch. Now I know not to. lol.

for a while (2 min.) i was content. then i got many fatal errors :shock:
two of them had to do with n00by lan-makers not making phone numbers for their modems and now my third one is a bit puzzling. i'm not good at analysing these error logs, so i kinda need help. here's the log:

Well... it looks like the D and J LAN, Gtek systems LAN and home corp have problems - but I thought that the FILESERVER type worked. I'll look into the code and get back to you - probably as an edit to this post. So you may not even read this text...

Bleh - sorry. I'm used to the forums being lively, active places, where top threads represent the past ten minutes' talk! I guess I just have to get used to the slower pace of life now. :-(

True, true... sadly. I miss the old days, I do... Sometimes, I get to thinking I was back in the old days... long ago. :roll:
