I simply get it every time I play the game. In fact, I have to actually try if I want to be good.

Here's how it works. All missions, even the ones from ARC and Arunmor, are either positive or negative. Obviously, positive brings your neuromancy rating up and negative brings it down.

Anything that damages a company (stealing/destroying databases, destroying mainframes, and completing LAN hacks) is positive, while anything that benefits a company (any of the government system missions, bank hacks, and ruining lives) is negative. It is harder to be positive than it is negative, both in effort and payment.

If you want your neuromancer to go up you need to target big company's instead of induviduals. however your neuromancer is pretty much useless because it doesn't effect anything in any way.

Hope it helps :)

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaan. I always do the negative stuff ._. But what parts do you recommend getting the postive ones?

Actually, even missions that help people (ie, giving people qualifications) is considered "bad" by the game. Hurting companies raises it.

Well, to get the positive ones, it's pretty hard. In the early-game, you have to go negative at first or else you'll never be able to afford to get to Experienced rank. Quickly get all the tools you need to go at Central Mainframes so you can get to destroying databases and mainframes. They will be your primary jobs until you get a bigger computer, where you'll worry about copying databases then.

There's no gameplay difference if you're positive or negative - Arunmor, ARC, and Uplink don't give a flying crap

Nope. It has no effect on the game.

The storyline, emails, and overall gameplay will be unchanged as a result of your neuromancy. It's simply a gauge of what kind of missions you do most often.
