    And don't forget this is copyrighted to Darkus! So it's HIS and no-one(!) can use it!

    Some questions,
    Why PDF and not HTML?
    Why not settle for something like creative commons (watch both movies and it will become quite clear. )?
    Could you lighten up the enemy images a bit?
    You talk about the Mac launcher, but give linux install instructions?

    That's all for now.

    Good job on making a guide.

    Your definition of "anime smile" is wrong. It's not animated, it's anime style (gigantic mouth).

    Some of the medals provide more than bragging rights - for example "Gunfighter", gained by getting 20 pistol kills in a level, lets you hold two pistols at once. A list of all the medals and what they do would be handy.

    About that, when playing on the lan with my brother I got the Akimbo pistols. The next day which was today I didn't have them for some reason. I wanted the pistols for Uplink, but didn't have them so I switched to the flamer.

    Thanks for the Comments Guys! Ill work on the revision today and then continue writing it!

    As for the Walkthrough, isent there a heading named (Not Available) just yet? Which means yes, there will be one. However, it will be written once this guide hits the Golden Version 1 stage and everythings clear and correct.

    Handicrap, I dont know about that, Ill ask the Dev's about this one and shove it into the FAQ's section at the end.

    immortius, Sorry, I got a lot wrong in the initial writing, a lot has to be changed, but I released it for that purpose. I wanted to have some feedback before I continue writing and at least get the first thing right!

    DeepQantas, I put that in for a laugh

    The Pope, Yes, there will be a list of Medals too! Coming Soon

    Everyone Else who said Good Job, Thanks!

    Ok cool, we'll try to get it to happen again and see if it was just a one time thing or a bug.

    Updated. I know it says <Insert Medals here>, I did a cock up of uploading it, so I replaced the older version. No worries. It has some changes!

    Thats the Last Public one though

    You should really do it in html. PDF is mostly for stuff that is going to be printed out like forms and whatnot. If someone wants to print it out html prints pretty good anyways. It will definitly be smaller filesize too.

    Well I dont carew about file savings and I WILL make a HTML version once im finished, I promise!

    PDF will do for now as you dont want to see a 9 Meg Word Document now would you?

    i think someone posted a topic on the forum with detailed information about every medal and how to get it
    will you (or arent you allowed from that specific person) to also put that information into your guide later on ?

    edit
    somehow the guide now keeps crashing cause i wanted to look up a specific line of text that has an error (i think)
    so i ll tell the error but cant back it up with the exact location in the guide since it keeps crashing (not in the mood to reboot atm :p)

    its somewhere with the info about the medics and what equipment to use
    i think you mention that medics should always carry 2 stims, doesnt that have to be 2 satchels? (and maybe a pistol to defend themselves in emergencies)

    Host irc.quakenet.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

    I think it would be best to change the end comments about IRC to irc.quakenet.org, and while we're nitpicking, another font might be nice

    i think that smiley (along with the soundbite that accompanies it sometime- "hack the planet!") is a reference to the movie Hackers

    David "Crash" Murphy also seems like a likely reference to the main character in hackers (David Murphy aka Crash Override)

    Nice guide Darkus

    I'm not completely 100% sure of this, but those IAF medals for 250/500 kills do net you +1 accuracy. At least in SP mode. I ran mission 1 for 20 mins on easy and racked up kills at the LZ before completing the mission, pretty sure that those medals gave you yellow stars.. go check it out

    Correction:
    To unlock Uber mode, the time-limit varies from mission to mission, it is not always 3 mins.

    There are also I few more Avatar descriptions - for welding doors and I think there is one for reloading and possibly hacking too.
