  • Currently this Mr Jones quest for Patch 168 is bugged.
  • Here is a workaround for the 2nd hacker mission. Which one you use depends on the language settings of your client.
  • If you are running in German, simply skip the part in the DNS and proceed directly to the Upload Station. The upload terminal will accept the data anyway so you can return to Mr Jones to finish the mission.
  • If you are running in English, the only way to complete the mission is to change your client language for a short time. Cancel your running mission and log out. From the launcher, press 'Configuration' and switch your client language to German. Log in and restart the mission from Mr Jones. He will speak German, but don't worry too much about what he says as you saw the mission before anyway. Choose the 2nd chat option "Stets zu dienen" to start the mission. Once the mission is started, go directly to the Upload Station and upload the data. Again, just click away at the German text until you hear the click and get "Missionziel erledigt!" (Mission objective successful). When you get this message you can log out again and switch your client back to English. Return to Mr Jones and the mission will be complete.
