Carriers are the methods used to encipher and deliver signals. Carrier specifications include spectrum, wavelength, frequency, and how the signal is enciphered and how the cipher acts on the brain. Carriers are named after the groups who developed them and/or use them.
MindGuard uses modular carrier files so you can always be sure to have the most current level of protection. Just move new carriers into the carrier directory, or replace old versions with new ones. MindGuard will automatically recognize and install them. If you install new modules while MindGuard is running, make sure you click the Known Carriers button to reload the modules.
The currently installed modules are displayed in the Carrier List in the upper-left side of the main window below the Known Carriers button.
Carrier modules included with MindGuard X v0.0.0.4:
- Antarctic Relay - v2.00
- CIA-Beta - v2.50
- CIA Russel - v2.00
- FBI Brother - v2.01
- Kortech KPsi - v2.20
- Liberati - v2.70
- Reticulan (all) - v3.42
- Russian Tz8 - v2.90
- UN Belgian subset - v1.80
- UN metric - v2.60
The actual module files have names that follow the form *.carrier. These usually have a smaller name than the carrier they detect (ie. "UN Belgian Subset" is belgian.carrier) since all relevant information is stored inside the file (which is an IFF-PSYC file format).
MindGuard X carrier modules are compatable with MindGuard for Amiga.
