Uplink v1.3

September 1st, 2002 by Judecca

Thomas Zajic sent in word of a new Uplink patch, bringing it up to version 1.3. The commercial hacking game now uses SDL for the graphics and sound engines. The full changelog is available here

Linux :
  • Fixed theming
  • DOS text files are now read in properly (this affected custom LANs and gateways)
  • Save games are now stored in ~/.uplink
  • Graphics backend is now OpenGL/SDL (previously used glut)
  • Sound backend is now a patched SDL_mixer to allow playing of UNI files. (see SDL_mixer.patch for changes)

      I suspect someone’s going to make [s]cracking[/s]debugging tools with Uplink-style interface just to gain some legitimacy, or confuse authorities. Hey, it works for remote admin tools.
