There should be an area under programs on the matrix tab that handles activesofts. If its a program your character created remember to check the "purchase for free" box when creating it.

Note that programs are also accessible via commlinks and vehicles as well. Also note in the upper right hand corner there is a " pull done chooser" for real world, set that to the correct setting when you're in the matrix to change your dice pools over.


Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.

The biowire echo does not allow you to use the same skillsofts that normal chracters can use. Instead, you must emulate a complex form that acts like that skillsoft. The skillsofts are at the bottom of the list of complex forms to choose from. The exact roll you'll need to make is described on pg. 149 of Unwired, in the section titled "Emulation".
