Where can I donate for you?
I'll give the same I paid for Uplink, which I think it's more than fair for bringing life back to this game

Oh wow, didn't think people actually do that XD

I was thinking of putting up a PayPal donate button on the main page, in the coming week, but I don't know how that works and how the modding community see them. Is it a common thing?

Thanks a lot!

I honestly don't know if it is common or not. I'm not a big mod guy.

But for me this is just common sense... you're probably spending all your free time fixing bugs on this. Even tho people do this out of their love for programming, the game, etc it takes a lot of time.

As I said, you brought one of the best games I've ever played back to life and for me that's worth a lot.

Don't know if a bug but I sense everything going too fast. Like the password breaker, it's breaking the password really fast when you start the game. Same with file/log deleter. Almost makes it too easy. I could be wrong though.

I wonder if it depends on the machine... Just checking: what processor do you have?

Also, before this version all of uplink's original apps would have a running time multiplied by 3, so maybe it's just the big difference that makes everything seem very fast?

Deleting mails using right-click --> delete duplicates them, following which the game will crash when you try and open one.

I agree with mikesoft above, everything seems to run really quickly, almost like the game didn't start you off with a crummy, near-useless CPU. xD

Those damn e-mails... UGH! They're more annoying than the Logs XD

The thing is, that before this version, all apps had a 3x multiplier added to their timings (which got left there from before I re-wrote the apps system... ugh). Hopefully, that's why they seem fast...
I'll do some tests this weekend to see how the timings were in vanilla and adjust from there.

OK I was able to do the speed run again, but since the initial CPU seems to be more powerful than nasa's pleiades, it was rather easy. But I can confirm I encountered no bugs so far, and the log thing is fixed! great job :) great mod

I upgraded everything so now I'll try to finish the story.

Hmmm, what kind of processor do you have (the real one)? Maybe it's tied to that... although it shouldn't be... hmmm.

Although, happy that you had a smooth ride! :D

it's a core i7 4720HQ (asus rog g751). But the thing is, I've been playing this mod since the article came out on.. was it RPS? anyway, a long time now, and it's just on this version that I feel the starting CPU is super efficient. I did the same speed run just 2 hours before this one using the previous version and the pasword cracking, deleting files/log was definitely slower, more suited to the starting CPU uplink gives ya.

I have to agree, things are moving really really fast now. I shouldn't be able to knock out 3 or 4 log entries and disconnect before the tracker even beeps twice on the basic Gateway setup. Not sure what changed, but it feels like I had already done my usual upgrade to the 4th or 5th Gateway machine and added faster CPUs.

Once I did my upgrades like I usually do, Logs were getting knocked out faster then I could click on the next one up the page! :)

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.3GHz

P.S.: Log_Deleter v4.0 fixes are awesome, SO happy to have this bug squashed!

So, before I released the mod in Beta, I had re-written the Apps, to work as in the vanilla version. The thing is, that I forgot a "* 3" multiplier in the Apps' timings, which I removed in this version, hence the new hastiness of the apps.

Now, I haven't tested this extensively, but on the Criminal Database and on InterNIC, the Pass Breaker and Decypher have pretty much the same timings as on vanilla. What I think the actual problem is, is that now you can delete multiple logs at a time, while in vanilla you couldn't, so you definitely cover your tracks faster.

Of course, I do have to investigate all this to confirm XD

Cheers!

Couple small bugs straight away: right-click deleting emails duplicates them and deleting an email using the X while reading it deletes all emails.

Thank you!
I had one file where I would delete 1 log and the others would disappear,
and my last one didn't even DELETE THE LOGS! God I hope I don't run into a bad bug >.<

Thank you for fixing the Log Deleter Bug!!! It's Amazing!
I've found an other Bug. The Randomizer always takes the same route. Can someone confirm this?

Yes, it's actually not *that* random... XD
Will, polish it in a future version.
Thanks for playing!
