Some questions about Modding

Postby danielfarr25 » Fri Jun 30, 2006 1:30 pm

1) How do you add gateways to simply uplink ???

2) Can you use more than 1 mod, if so which ones are compatible/non-compatible with eachother

3) Is the radio gateway actually real? is it possible to have a gateway which you cannot be caught with

Thanx for any help or answers that are given

I guess by the same way you add them in Uplink (don't forget to start a new agent)

You can run any number of gateways/lans mods, but you can only run 1 moddified Uplink exetutable

But all the files in the uplink directory are ".dat" files when they used to be folders which I uploaded the gateways to

some .dat aren't zip archives but file encoded with redshirt.

for gateways:

the .txt file: \data\gateways
the .tif files: \graphics\gateway

The gateways I used to download on http://www.modlink.net/ have the correct path in the archive.

Moded names?

Postby malondo » Wed May 25, 2011 9:44 pm

Sorry to bump but, what about company names, agent names, surnames and all that?

Are these TXT files supposed to be in uplink\data\ or some other sub-folders?


PS. I tried to decrypt data.dat to figure out its architecture and make sure I did place my modded company.txtin the right place, but redshirt2.exe is nowhere to be found online anymore. :(
Also, I'm using the Steam version (1.54 most likely).


Edit: Ok, it seems the right filename is companya.txt, but I'm not so sure about it as I recreated several new accounts until it worked. :/
Still I'd like to know what's moddable by placing files in the \data\ folder.
