Re: Network Build screenshots

this's my base. please give me feedback. Your base is too low to give proper feedback, however as a rule of thumb, always pick Security nodes over Business (resources) at the start. The resources are not a good source of income until they are high level. So there is no point in having two mines and...

Re: Price of Background Themes and Rank Rewards

I realized early on there is no incentive to rank rep other than bragging rights. So I changed my play style to bum hunt hit high resource nodes to base build. My successful hacks are all fails and I have 0 rep now. This could hurt later if they do give an incentive for rep. I have no reason to cli...

Re: Possible Easter egg???

we can brute force when we have 4 of 7 codes Sorry to put a downer on this, but I had a code returned that included zero numbers :( Oh well. I love puzzles, but anything with a randomness to it. i.e trying 20 plus QR's just to get 1 code and I just can't be bothered. No patience for randomness. If ...

Re: Upgrading compiler?

http://hackersthegame.wikia.com/wiki/Hackers_Wikia It opens a new compiling space. At the start you only have one compiler space, upgrading allows you to have more compiler spaces (up to 4) therefore 2/3/4 programs can be created at the same time. It works hand in hand with the library and evolver L...

Re: Possible Easter egg???

I feel it would best to tackle this as a group. Putting on my manager hat for a second lets run though what we got. What we know: - QR's appear in the core - We can duplicate these QR's in the scanner - Some QR's give out Binary Codes - Binary code when translated give out a number from a 7 digit pa...

Re: How does the Battering Ram work?

It doesn't seem to attack any other nodes except the code gates. Does it actually attack the filter, code strength or firewall? I don't quite understand... Edited: my Blaster example below. It only works on code gates. From what I've seen it attacks the Code Strength, when that is broken the filter...

Re: Need some advice

Not entirely sure what I should use my last free node for. I have a choice between a server farm, a sentry, black ice, or a scanner. I have not built a scanner yet since I haven't been attacked through stealth yet and I'm not sure if it's really worth it. (explanation of how the scanner works in de...
