You probably did something wrong. IIRC the IAD doesn't use a proxy.

* Are you on the readonly account? If so, use readwrite or admin instead
* Did you actually make changes? I don't remember, but it might not allow commits if there isn't anything _to_ commit

Does it show you the photo of them?

I managed to search for the person i needed. used readwrite found the person then changed the data i needed to change but no box appears to say changes have been made when i click commit. I even tried the admin account and same thing happens. Am i missing a firewall bypass or proxy bypass? I have done these missions before but cant do it again after i started from the begining

*bump*

If the problem is proxy or fire wall the message should appear telling you so.Try sending the you complete the mission email anyways? there is no downside to telling them false

bypass's are like disablers execpt 2 things
1 they dont alert the company when you use them
2 they cost alot more(including hud)

Try changing random peoples academic info and see if you get a success message?

The 'readonly' account won't even give you the option to view the records.

Indeed sounds bugged in some way. There are no firewall or proxy to bypass on the IAD. However, can you see if it's the game's resolution that's causing the problem, just for the lulz?

its happened to me a few times which has put me off playing the game. I think its a bug when you log into the read/write account. but even if i then hack the admin account the same thing happens i dont understand why. my resolution seems fine i can see everything on the screen

Coming back to this issue, I haven't actually had any problems. Resolution wouldn't affect anything gameplay-wise (it is only used for the display routines)

I don't get issues with readwrite (I always crack that first after bypassing monitors). Assuming the game knows it's legit (did you try applying any mods to it? Those can break Steam), there shouldn't be any issues. You can try verifying the cache. Other then that, I don't know what the issue could possibly be.

For a bit of additional context, I recently finished taking apart the IAD part of the game, so I know how it _should_ be working. However, there are a couple checks for an address I had associated with DEMOPGEN (Demo version plot/mission generator), so it might be checking if it is the demo and failing the check. I've barely touched that part of the code.

EDIT: So it is clear, custom gateways/LANs/interfaces aren't mods. Mods are things which you need to modify Uplink.exe for.
