comment Are heavy cannon and auto-cannon still tactically advantageous after acquiring the laser rifle?
HE ammo on auto-fire from an auto-cannon is very useful. You can use it to take down small buildings to get at aliens in cover, and to clear rooms in UFOs.

comment Capturing multiple of the same alien
In the original game, Sectoids had jobs, and so a Sectoid Navigator would yield extra info above and beyond that of a Sectoid Soldier. In the origional, getting the Hyper-wave decoder from researching a Navigator early on made your life much easier!

comment Are bosses harder as a stealth-based character?
Its worth noting that the boss fights tend to start with a cut-scene, followed by the boss getting the drop on you. This occurs even if you are invisible and have been looking through walls to check for danger. This is rather frustrating to a stealthy player.

comment Should I persist to try to get in the subway after I broadcast the message In New York?
Just to note that the success/failure of the protecting is based SOLELY on leaving through the main door (Success) or the window (failure). I did the protecting, then snuck out the window resulting in the person I was trying to protect being dead later.

comment Final Fantasy VII - Best way to defeat Ruby and Emerald Weapons
Easiest way to do this vs Ruby is to exploit Aire Tam. Have a char on 9999 HP with 2 Materia equipped. Then when Ruby casts Aire Tam, it does 2222 damage leaving you on 7777 which triggers lucky7s!

@Pixel Does this mean I won't be able to see the phased starting area quests; I'll have effectively already completed them?

comment I died in Nethack to Food Poisoning, despite having Poison Resistance
@Anon. Its caused by the toxin that the microbes produce while they eat the food. Its definitely poison, hence the name! Just its unexpected poison from bacterial toxin production rather than toxins naturally occurring in the food. This means you could kill someone with Poison Resistance by adding bacterial toxins to their food, as then it would count as food poisoning rather than normal poising! (Net hack is wrong)

comment Is the name of the Uplink corporation administrator discoverable?
Hmm interesting. I've never tried to trace the payments get into my account to rob my employers. I think it might just come from the ether rather than a real account.

comment Is the name of the Uplink corporation administrator discoverable?
If you look at the save game file, you can see the accounts at the banks. Its a long time since I looked though. I assume nothing has changed in any recent patches!

comment Is there ever a reason to have multiple bank accounts?
@Zommuter Ah, I was pretty sure I had used it to get multiple loans before. This was several years ago though. I'll have to recheck!

Multiple bank accounts also allows you to have multiple loans. This can be useful if you are just short of buying something you need for your next mission.

comment How do I make money quickly in Uplink?
Just to point out that its much easier if you open a bank account at the target bank first. That way you can edit the logs of both accounts without needing to bypass Uplink Bank's security.

comment Is Revelation a good substitute for a self-destruct device?
Yes, Revelation v.1 and self destruct are functionally equivalent. This is very useful with the computer with only one security slot!
