Mac Version Worth It

Postby Ben87 » Sun Jan 06, 2008 10:11 am

Ok...

Well here is my question,

I have the mac version of uplink...though i do have bootcamp, is it worth switching over to the pc game...and if so, is there a way to simply plug in my registration into the pc one or do i need to buy it again?

If you bought the Mac version, then you will have to purchase another key from IV or Steam to play the Windows version. The current version of the Mac version is several years out of date, but I know that Miah is working on an update for the Mac version. The rumour mill suggests that all he is waiting for before releasing it is permission from ASW to use the license registration system. So, while I wouldn't hold my breath, it is likely that the Mac updates will be out soonish. In that case, it probably wouldn't be worth your while to get the Windows version, as well.

Hmmm, I see...well hopefully it will come out relatively soon. I have not really gotten into any part of the game where I have found problems so...hopefully it is ok. Quick game question, if I may, still pretty early on, when u get the revelation program and get asked to email a copy of it to ur employers...what happens if i accidentally responded to the email but didnt send the program?

Most likely, they say: "Uh oh, you forgot the file - send it again, son!"

Ah, in that case, yes, you are screwed for the Arunmor storyline. Kinda.
Nevertheless, you can still either follow the ARC storyline by helping the company that gave you Revelation in the first place, or pick up Arunmor missions from Uplink Internal Services, where they are displayed like ordinary missions.

Is it worth starting over, or is the other story-line...fun/possible?

They're both just as good, really, just different. Not knowing your exact situation it sounds possible to continue playing the storyline, but I can't be absolutely certain. Look in the Guide in my sig if you need more gameplay help, most things are covered in it.
