Hey everyone! I'm making a comeback! And I really promise this one won't die because I've got the story laid out! Hurray!

This game is sort of a Hollywood Hacking simulator! With 16-color ANSI displays! If you're into that sort of thing!

"What is my mission?", you ask? Well, I'll tell you all about your mission! Your mission is to hack into every computer and delete everything hack into a mainframe and extract a highly confidential document whose contents are unknown! To you, at least! I like exclamation marks!

But first, I want you to fill out this form so I know what kind of battlestation are you using!

MONITOR TYPE (MONOCHROME/COLOR):
FONT COLOR (IGNORE IF MONITOR IS COLOR) (AMBER/BLUE/WHITE/GREEN):
COLORS (IGNORE IF MONITOR IS MONOCHROME) (4/16) (IF YOU WANT, YOU CAN ALSO HAVE 2 COLORS (MONOCHROME)):
PREFFERED STORAGE MEDIUM (MAGNETIC TAPE/8-INCH FLOPPY DISK/5-INCH FLOPPY DISK/3-INCH FLOPPY DISK):
OPERATING SYSTEM (MECHATEC INDUSTRIES TERMOS/TRYLLIAN TECHNOLOGIES AOOS/AYR INSTITUTE ARCOS (OBSOLETE)):

So just fill out that form, give us a couple of details about your character if you wish, and engage in some Rapid Fire Typing!

I may take some time to update because I'm not at home, but don't worry, unlike in my last forum game, I will be punctual!

Real, as in real info about your computer? Naaaah, it's for your ingame terminal thingy that you use for hacking.

(Is this what you meant to ask?)

Sure, I'll clarify.

COLORS is how many colors can your monitor display at the same time.



1 bit or 2 colors, default for monochrome monitors, optional for color ones (on a monochrome monitor, this image appears as black with the other color you picked. If you picked amber, it would be amber on black.)



2 bits or 4 colors (when actually using the command line, there is virtually no difference between 2 and 4 colors,  it's only noticeable on images)



4 bits or 16 colors

PREFERRED STORAGE MEDIUM is just for kicks.

OPERATING SYSTEM changes some of the commands and the appearance of your interface, as well as software you can use.

MONITOR TYPE should be pretty obvious.

For color, I'd go with 4 bits/16 colors. Changing now. Also, the 2 bits/4 colors actually looks cool with that picture :\

Flytt (Matt?) decided to put a keylogger on her computer and steal her SmartSchool account to make her 'break' one of the rules: Do not conduct your campaign through digital means. That's all. Since then, Flytt's been hacking anyone's account on any kind of network.

If I read his message right, he writes that he hacked the most popular girl who's going to be class president. So "she" wouldn't be himself.

Ah...sorry for the misunderstanding then, I guess I misread your backstory.  :P2

Thanks for pointing it out, LPChip!

Also, I finished your computer screen thing...

Meh, I really, really can't be bothered to correct something so small right now. Let's just pretend it isn't there!  ;)
