I recently got back into onlink after a long break, and I always get to the same few roadblocks that I never figured out. I searched, and didn't find anything (may have looked for wrong things), so here they are.

1) On certain central mainframes (other servers?) after hacking though the passwords and such, I press proceed and get the "host not responding", then get disconnected. What do I need to do to bypass this?

2) What exactly does the sentry affect, I get what the rest of the securities do besides the sentry.

3) With banks when you hack for admin access, and view the accounts, they are all obfuscated. How do you get through this, I thought of maybe the md5 hash cracker, but that really didn't make sense.

4) Missions titled with "help bankrupt a rival" (I think, its the ones where it only gives you a name), how do you you figure out anything about them. (through the name servers?)

5) Does increasing modem do anything besides increase speed?

6) SYS_chaoslib, whats the purpose for exactly, and is the random bounce point useful?

7) Denial...I get the purpose, but...I just dont get it?

8) Just remembered this one, when the server says you get annot run any of the programs how do you get by this?

I think that is about it for now, so any answers would be appreciated.

Wow never knew there was a wiki...., either way thank you.

Edit: Using a real hash cracker didn't seem to work, only thought is I put in one letter/number wrong, but I don't think I did.

ah, can you help me with what I should use?

Also just remembered the render 3d thing, which never made sense to me if it actually served a purpose to game or something else.

Edit: When it says "we cannot allow you to accept the mission, blah blah employer doesn't want you too", this means you are the one who did it correct?

Nope, since I never cared enough to try cracking the encrypted passwords.

I don't remember anything about the render 3d thing.

Yes.

Please, what version of Onlink are you using? The current/newest version of Onlink has terrible (known) save-game bug, which makes Onlink unplayable (and I finished original Uplink so much times, so it is not that fun and enjoyable anymore...). So it will be nice if I had some older version of Onlink - old, without newest features, but stable and playable...

Thank you.

First off I'm playing on XP and x32 onlink (if that matters for you). I have version 1.0.5, and besides the occasional crash, it works fine for me.
