Total Hack is a paperback magazine with aged covers. The details on the covers are done entirely in ASCII art, a style of illustration that uses assorted symbols on a computer to create a picture.
Reading an issue of Total Hack adds a holotape to the player character's inventory in a similar manner to RobCo Fun. Each holodisk can be loaded into a terminal controlling protectrons, spotlights, or turrets to access unique options for all connected (and active) units of that specific type.
|Editor ID||Issue||Location||Location description||Base ID|
|#1 Control Robots||Wattz Consumer Electronics||Basement server room, on the terminal desk, north wall||00094734|
|02||#2 Control Spotlights||The Shamrock Taphouse||Held by the female mannequin standing on the table in the “game” room with the chessboard||00094735|
|03||#3 Control Turrets||Wildwood Cemetery||Under the tree in the center of the cemetery||00094736|
Each of the magazines contains a holotape that must be inserted to have access to additional options. Unlike other holodisks, these do not need to be ejected to be retained. It will automatically be ejected and the effects will be retained upon leaving the terminal.
