INTRODUCTION

Uplink: Deep Blue is a fan made noncommercial modification for the hacker game "Uplink" a.k.a. "Uplink Hacker Elite" (2001, by Introversion Software), aimed at giving players a game enhancement true to Uplink's unique original style.

The mod offers a moderately polished classic interface, an enhanced and expanded gateway selection, added variety of names, an extended soundtrack with hours of free module music, plus extra companies with new computer systems to hack.

I hope the result can provide some extra fun for those diehard Uplink fans still playing this wonderful and timeless classic.

Thanks for reading this. Enjoy the Uplink: Deep Blue mod!

Could you make compatibility patch for UplinkOS? Playing with original interface on modern resolutions is kinda hard on the eyes, because nothing is scaling properly.

Sorry, but no. UplinkOS is basically another game, and would require a complete rewrite of the mod. Uplink: Deep Blue is for the old guard. Pure nostalgia.

Uplink OS is hardly another game. The base mechanics stay mostly similar.

It's probably a completely different game from the technical standpoint. Making a comp patch between the two would probably require completely remaking Deep Blue to fit OS.

Hi, tried the mod steam 1.55 windows 10. The game was crashing becouse words beeing to big:

An Uplink strncpy Failure has occured
=====================================
Location : .\world\generator\namegenerator.cpp, line 312
Dest. size : 9
Source size : 9
Str. Source : authority

I edited /Uplink/data/wordlist.txt. Cut all words to have less then 9 characters and it works for me now.

Fixed in v2.0.0 (among other issues). Should work fine on Windows now (I hope).
