Connection Interruption != Failed Hack >:(

Post by Hell_Diguner » Sat Feb 25, 2017 6:38 am

I'm sick of loosing wi-fi connection for half a second during the pre-hack phase and having that target removed from the world map or retrace list. The default behavior should be "hack never started," not "hack failed" :x

This could be exploited. For example if you were failing badly you could just quickly turn on airplane mode.

I didn't think I'd have to explain that you should loose 'immunity' once the server recognizes you've placed a program :roll:

And before someone asks, the programs you use are sent to the servers every ten seconds or so. How do I know? I've also lost connection mid-hack. Oddly, if there's a hiccup mid-hack, the game gives you about 5 seconds to reestablish connection (wi-fi symbol appears in the middle of the screen to indicate this), rather than immediately booting you.

That is fair, as long as it only applies to pre-hacking it shouldn't break anything.
