How to discover your own name? (spoiler, sort of not really)

Postby demoman » Sun Nov 11, 2012 7:31 pm

11 year Uplink user here.

I've read somewhere that you can discover your own name in-game, and that it's supposed to be 'TooManySecrets?'. Is this true? If so, how/where?

Nope, first toomanysecrets is an old cheat, v1.0 or thereabouts, it no longer works.

As for your name, you can find information on people who are uplink agents, in one of the last places you would hack, but any information regarding you is mysteriously missing.

Trust me it is not. The cheats went in a very early version.

Believe me, I'm just as surprised as anyone when I read that it was possible. I got the info from tvtropes:

"As a hint to a cheat code (which is, unfortunately, patched away), it is actually possible for the game to disclose your alias. It's TooManySecrets"

As far as I know the cheat code was patched away after 1.2, but I never knew that TooManySecrets was the player's alias. Actually I don't even know if THAT's true.

Well the cheat needed to be entered as the users alias, maybe thats what they mean.

Just checked tropes and it defiantly says "alias", and alias != real name. So I think someone got confused there.

Well player name is your alias, so one and the same, chalk it up to an internet cock up I reckon.
