About the IRC Ingame
Hey Guys that are still playin' this game!

I think that (although this game is over 10 years old) everyone who plays this game should not just ignore the ingame-irc. You should use it write something! I'd REALLY love to do that cause its a bit frustrating to see this game being played but not discussed - keep it alive!

that would be cool, Once I get the hud upgrade I'll totally jump into that

Well, i think, i'll buy it, but first I need Hardware upgrade and stuff.
the ingame IRC is pretty expensive, you dont really need to use the ingame one tho

I just got this game with the Humbhle indie bundle for android (and computers) 3. So, I don't know what's IRC. In fact, I need help : It's a really good game, and I recently was able to upgrade for the first time my gateway. After a (ingame) day of waiting, i recieved an (ingame) mail telling me to disconnect from Uplink and reconnect to get to my new gateway, so I've clicked on the cross on the top left corner and then i reconnected, but i was not connected to my new gateway ! I don't know if it's a bug or if i did something wrong, but can someone help me please ? (Sorry for my bad english)

That's strange. Are you sure? Maybe you upgraded your gateway to the same? Or it's a bug.
Also, I tried the IRC. It didn't worked for me. I was sending messages and nobody responded.

It worked when the game was originally released in 2001/02.

actually the "nobody is responding" is why i started this post, so...

well its working perfectly fine, its not that expensive really (well you dont buy it at the beginning anyway) and apparently there were 20-30 people and 10 active last time I was there (1 day ago)
You can of course also use it to join your regular IRC channels
Beware it might crashes the game but its pretty much ok since the saves are quite regular

I don't know what was going on in there. It listed a bunch of what I presume were players, including Icepick, but the readout at the top said that no other clients responded. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

this game is a pain in the♥♥♥♥♥♥ i was all for the "lol look at me i'm a hacker" thing but it's more punishing than anything. playing chess by myself is less annoying

ingame IRC? that's crap thing if your do tried it.
use the real one!

Also when you're short of fund, Bank is the free ATM for you.

Unredemption, it's basically a Roguelike. Unforgiving as hell, sparse interface, permadeath...

Kaninchen, wouldn't that screw you over when the bank checks the transaction record and sees a huge transfer to your account?
Autumn Raynefyr Sep 14, 2012 @ 12:45am 
If you get the right build going, like I used to, you can "hack" into the banks, write down all of the bank accounts, disconnect and reconnect and use the password cracker with the bypasses to drain every bank account in that bank and if you are quick enough to catch the transfer logs, you will have all the money in that bank and no one will ever know.. xD

I miss OnLink...
I'd get the IRC thing, however I worry that absolutely nobody will be there and I will have wasted 4000 credits on a useless feature. I need to, like, upgrade my gateway and my CPU and stuff first.
