    Uplink for PSP is a Homebrew game for Sony PlayStation Portable. The game was entirely designed in LUA, and it uses Homemister's LuaPlayerHm (version 7 Release Candidate 1).
    The gameplay, graphics and sounds are based on Uplink: Hacker Elite PC Game (written by Chris Delay).
    The scenario is pretty simple: 'You are a hacker looking for fame.That's the reason why you register at Uplink. As an agent, you will have to work for worldwide companies and people to achieve some unworthy tasks: break into security systems, steal sensible data, falsify records...'




    Gameplay

    ============= Gameplay Basics ==================
    First, you have to registrate to uplink in order to create your own profile.You wll use this profile later to get connected to you personal gateway computer.
    When you are connected to your gateway computer, basically you can perform several tasks by clicking on corresponding icon:
    - Display Informations about your current gateway computer: its name, amount of CPU power installed (Ghz), Amount of memory storage (Gb), its bandwidth (Mb/s).Each gateway can be upgraded by installing more CPU Power, more memory devices and extra bandwidth.
    - Display the contents of your gateway computer hardrive, and run/execute softwares.
    - Display your banking status: You have a personal hidden account on International Bank,where your daily fee is transferred everyday at 00:00 o'clock, and where any payment is transferred too.You will later use these credits to buy new softwares/hardware.
    - Open the worldmap : the worldMap window shows the whole world with all mainframes, banks and governement databases location,plus Uplink services.You can connect to any of these public/private servers from your gateway directly or through a bounce connection.



    ============== Security systems & Sofwares ======================
    Most of the time you get connected to a server,you will have to deactivate some security systems:
    Monitor : These softwares start to trace you back anytime you are making suspiscious actions on the password screen.use Monitor Bypass softwares to deactivate them.

    Proxy : Use Proxy bypass softwares to deactivate them.

    Firewall : Use Firewall Bypass softwares to deactivate them.

    Elliptic Encryption Cypher : They main purpose is to encrypt the current connection between your gateway and the host. Use Decypher to deactivate them.



    ================== About Tracing ==========================
    When you connect to a public/private server, you're automatically traced back.
    As a hacker working for Uplink, you must never be traced back completely, or your career is over.
    Use Trace Tracker software to display in real time the traceback operation progress.


    ================== About Password screens ====================

    Most of the systems require a password for logging.Unless you know this password, use Password Breaker software.


    ================= About Servers ==================
    In this game, you have four (04) different types of servers:

    - Banks : a customer account cannot be hacked using Password Breaker.You will have to know the customer's account number and his password.Once logged in, you can read financial details and perform money transfer to another account.
    - Mainframes : They are public servers for sensible data storage, when you can perform illegal downloads.Most of them are just password protected, plus some security systems.
    - Databases: They are highly protected systems and belong to the authorities.They hold records about people.You can modify records.

    - Stores: They belong to Uplink. You can buy there new hardware/softwares.

    Additionnal Informations

    =============== Requirements =====================
    You need a sony PSP in Custom Firmware to run this homebrew game.
    This homebrew was successfully tested on Fat & Slim PSP running under 5.50 GENB Custom Firmware.
    Should be compatible on any M33 and GEN Custom Firmware.


    =============== Installation ======================

    Extract this archive at your Memory Stick Root.


    =============== Commands =====================
    General :
    Cross : select/click
    Directional pad/ Joypad : moves cursor


    All others specific commands are detailled in the game itself.





    =============== Special Thanks ==============

    Hi all,
    i've been recently started working on a new and original Homebrew game for Sony's PSP.Basics are entirely implemented, only remains some cleaning stuff, optimizations before i start writing scenarios for playing.

    Thus I can show the game concept.

    Name: HackLink - Rule The World

    Based On: Uplink-Hacker Elite (Chris Delay's PC Game)

    GamePlay: Really simple. You're a Hacker.You enjoy breaking the law on the Net.Your dream is to become a free-lance agent working for HackLink, a worldwide corporation and become a Leader in computer crimes.

    Programming Language: Lua - Using LuaPlayerHm7 and LuaPlayerWindowsR3 for debugging

    Thanks for reading. ...

    Hi all,
    well there's been a long time i've posted here.I have been, but i'm back for a while, so i can take the time to work on old project.

    I spend a long time learning a bit about pathfinding algoritm techniques, specially Dijkstra's Algoritm and A-Star.After working a whole night long, i've been able to add this for units move.

    So I share this with the whole community.The main problem will now be able to move many units at the same using the same pathfinding procedure.

    I thanks LMelior for A-Star Pathfinding tutorial, and Altaïr for the Algorithm.

    Pathfinding - Age of Nations WIP
    Lua Coded By Roland Y. (a.k.a. SeanPaul223)
    Credits to :Altaïr's A-Star Algorithm & LMelior Tutorial








    What's This:
    This a single demo release for Pathfinding Algorithm.
    I've developed it for my RTS project Age of Nations.
    The main aim of this is guiding a unit on a map.

    Basics Commands:
    Arrow keys & Joypad: Move Selector
    Cross: Set a target for unit move
    SQuare+D-Pad: Browse Map
    L: Activate Debug Mode
    R: Disable Debug Mode


    Known bugs:
    When you click on a house to order the unit to move, the howmebrew crashes.This should be linked to the way the code is.
    Anyway, i'll try tofix later.

    Compatibility:
    Works Slim & FAt PSP.

    Hey all,

    Labyrinth is a Lua Coded Homebrew which uses RayCasting Engine to draw 3D scenes.

    Credits to :http://www.permadi.com/tutorial/raycast/

    What’s This
    The Labyrinth is a little brew game with no scenario.You just have to quickly find the way to the exit.
    You’re timed for this!
    As a matter of fact,The main aim of this brew is to show The game engine.The game apperas to be tridimentional, but it doesn’t uses any 3D algorithm, just RayCasting.
    I’ve based this engine on Sean Connelly’s Codetank Source, and F. Permadi’s tutorial.



    The animation goes fast on PC computer, but this is really slow on a PSP.I’ve did the best adjustements but i don’t think the job is done yet.Anyway you can give it a shot.



    Commands:
    Arrow Keys and Joystick: Move on Area.


    Objectives: Just found the way to the exit before the times reaches zero.


    Compatibility:
    This fully work on Slim & FAt PSP.
    EXtract contents into ms0:/PSP/GAME/


    Nota: Anybody can try it, but this mainly concerns developers.

    hey all,

    After a long time without any notifications about its updates, Age of Nations is back(Sorry i've been very busy so that i didn't have the time to work on the project).

    The fourth version is coming soon.I’ve promised i will include playable scenario, and will have no bugs.We’re near the release.

    Many things have been done, such as rewriting the engine to optimize the code while adding new things.No the games runs faster, and units truly obey your orders.

    I’ve been able to set two scenarios, and clean all bugs at all.They are all fully playable, and quite interesting, but short… as my bêta testers said.

    To summarize, three quarters of the work is done.it only remains to end the third campaign coding and modify the code according to your critics.

    That’s why i’ve planned to make a Pre-Release of the IVth version.it will contained, as i said before, only two scenarios, but you’ll have a good idea on what’s coming next.

    Age of Nations will be online maybe this evening or tomorrow (this will depends on my bêta testers, which are still tracking some bugs).While waiting it, i hope you’ll enjoy these screens.

    hi all,
    this is just to notify about the new progress i've been able to do since my last post in the same thread.

    First, the script file size: :humped:


    I won't release any Demo version.I think the game have considerly improved, and its time now to set up some campaigns for real playing.


    What remains to do:

    • Add Some Ai Features
    • Add Ballista Units.i've recently got the sprites.
    • Create some scenarios for campaign play
    • Add Save/load Feature
    • Clean Some Bugs, of course
    • Add Some features and Taunts Sounds for units, just for fun.
    • Clean The code and add Some comments, then if some coders are interested, they can understand the code quickly and make their own Mods.



    What have been made since:


    Concerning Ai:
    On this fact, i'm really proud of the work...Think i'm really going towards an real Ai system..Ai Units are really independant.They Collect ressources they need for upgrade, their create their own soldiers and make them stand ground.Ai Peasants know how and when they have to repair any damaged building.
    Virtual keyboard will be used to text some messages to your Opponent, and pay tributes.


    Concerning Natural Ressources:

    There's no worry about it.Natural ressources are quite infinite.It regenerates automatically.


    Concernig Units:

    I've planned to add ballista units for player's Civilization.Also, the important fact is that all type of units are improving depending on the current Age.When you upgrade, for instance, units move faster, work faster, and so on and so forth.This is the same for Ai Units.


    Gameplay:

    This is just about sounds.I've add a music Playlist, and it gives a nice look to the game.Only remains to find some taunts sounds for units, and add'em.

    Now here is some sreenshots:










    Release:
    I haven't planned any date for this full release.it will take the time it needs.But i'll do my best to provide to the community something really interesting. ...
