Tips & Tricks:
* About money, there’s 3 things you need to know
If you have -$1000 or more, you can still buy stuff. Simple as that.
If you have less than -$1000, the bank will charge you $10 each day.
If you have less than -$3000, you can’t buy anything!
If you reach this value and can’t finish your jobs or sell spare
parts to get above -$3000, you can’t continue on that save file.
* You start with only 1 workbench. You can unlock the second one at
Lvl. 3 and the third one at Lvl. 8. Yeah but why should I buy then?
3D Mark. You’ll need to run 3D Mark on this machine. And the other
machine too. And the other one. AND ANOTHER ONE. I’d say 85% of the
machines you pick up, you have to run 3D Mark on it for testing
purposes, and the test takes around a minute, plus installation
and restart times (around 15 seconds). If you don’t have other
workbenches, you’ll have to sit and wait, and that’s not fun.
* Try to have 3 rigs at the workshop or in transit the whole time.
That’s the limit. You won’t receive any e-mails while you have 3
rigs in the shop / in transit. When you finish a job and collect
the money, you’ll get another e-mail with another offer, and when
you pick a job, the machine will always arrive the next day, so
always try to leave the workshop with no rigs on it and 3 on
transit for the quickest profit.
* At the time of creation of this patch (March 28th), you can’t
see the client’s specs in the e-mails, so you may or may not get a
profit from it. Sometimes the client wants a 2TB HDD, which costs
$70, and he’ll pay you $60 for the job. In that case, you can just
decline. However there’s jobs which involves discovering the problem,
and the fix might cost more than what he’s paying you.
I’ll just cancel the job then
YOU CAN’T CANCEL ANY JOBS AFTER ACCEPTING THEN!. Have that in mind!
* Generally speaking, the jobs don’t pay you too much. You’ll almost
always stay on negative balance (or maybe I’m just too bad with
management). However, the game does not punish you for not being
There’s certain jobs that requires you for example, to just change the
broken HDD. You open the rig, and it’s a 2TB HDD. You can put a 250GB
HDD on its place and still receive the money with no penalties or
anything. This works with every job that requires you to only change
* DO NOT accept jobs that wants uber 3D Mark Scores. 3500 should be
your score limit. Clients often wants to pay ~$170 for a rig with
over 4000 on 3D Mark, and you need expensive VGAs / CPUs for that
score, usually around $700 in total price.
* Don’t worry with correctly removing cables or turning off the PC
when you’re swapping hardware. PC booted up and it’s ready for
delivery? Just pick it from the workbench and put it on the hallway,
no need to turn it off then remove the cables before picking it up.
The same goes to the Flash Drive and installed programs. You do not
need to remove then before returning the rig to the hallway.
* If you don’t have enough workbenches, you can pick a rig the way
it is and put it on the hallway. It will stay there until the moment
you finish the job, so don’t worry.
* If a specific part in your inventory have a note with the owner’s
name, that means you can’t change it. That usually occurs on “Diagnose
and fix” jobs. If you think for example that the PSU is broken, remove
it and there’s a note on it, that means it isn’t broken.
The problem is in another piece.
* The storage on the left (the one you can unlock at Lvl. 6) serves
only for putting rigs on it instead of the hallway. Nothing more.
3D Mark Glitch:
In builds where a customer wants an upgrade and certain 3d mark score, you
can cheat it by replacing the card with a powerful one. run the benchmark
and as soon as 3d mark objective becames green, you can replace a powerful
card with the customer’s original card. Just boot it up then deliver. You
will retain your more powerful card and the customer is happy with its 3d
Note: This work only if after replace the card do not run again the 3d
Note: This glitch was performed on an unpatched version of the game.
It is likely to eventually get patched.
