Re: Fix for black screen on Windows 8/Windows 10 for Deadloc

hello, as i mentioned in another thread, a friend of mine had issues with windows 10. we tried together what explained above, but it seems it had no effect whatsoever. chances are 2: 1) it fixes a different problem than one of my friend (graphic glitches for the multiplayer IP mask input) 2) my frie...

Re: hamachi network for multiplayer games NOW

of course it worked! there was just one annoying bug issue( * ), and anyways i'm going to explain it extensively over here: so, good news that you think that 1 host present in 2 hamachi networks can bridge between them. never tried, actually never played with more than 1 human opponent. we should de...

Re: Deadlock II on Hamachi??

this will suffice to gather players with the specific aim of playing online, and display who is online, or new messages asking for games.
