Re: Interlocking network loops?

Thanks, Luminaar. I'll try your kung fu and see if it will make me stronger.

Interlocking network loops?

Anyone, I have run across network designs that are built like rat's nests with connections that seem to go from one side of the network to the other side of the network through the middle. How does one make those connections in the "rebuild" interface? I have tried grabbing a node in the foreground ...

Rep points for stealth trifecta? [KNOWN ISSUE/RESOLVED]

Hmmm...I just completed a stealth attack back on an opponent where I downloaded his core, downloaded all the loot and had Access programs strategically installed to light up every network node (not installed on all the nodes). I only received rep credit for the core and loot. Is this a bug or do I h...

Re: All new juicy data is now available on the Hackers wiki page!

Thanks for the reply, Luminaar. Yes, it was a lvl 1 squid and I should have re-read the behavior rules. As someone else on here said, since it is only available at advanced levels, perhaps I expected it to do more or too much. The random behavior of an "intelligent" node or program is what I find so...

Re: All new juicy data is now available on the Hackers wiki page!

I got the squid, too, and only tried it once for offensive stealth with abysmal results. Visibility ran out so fast I couldn't abort before the reboot. It takes waaaaay to long to install with the maxed out scanners I face, then the random targeting of nodes makes it worthless. If it is "AI" shouldn...

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Appreciate the clarifications, Luminaar. I just leveled up my core so I'll put this new social engineering to good use with my new nodes.

Re: What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Thanks for replying, Luminaar. What I think I hear you saying, which I did not find in the wiki, is that once a node is captured, it has a full firewall again working for the attacker that has to be overcome by the defending security nodes using the DPS stat, correct? (Or maybe the way to look at it...

What does the Sentry Strength DPS on the Wiki mean?

Hey Trickster Arts, I've enjoyed Hackers for a few months now. I've searched and read most of the the Wiki page and forums to better understand how the game works and the best strategies. Despite the Wiki being pretty vague and unclear about certain things (even just defining terminology), I've figu...
