How often are people playing DL2 these days? I love the game but I'm getting bored fighting AI who never seem to want to attack me for some reason.

We need a new version... systems capable of running Deadlock are gradually disappearing. The owner of the rights to the game hasn't responded however. We live in hope!
Where are we on the curve, we'll know once it goes asymptotic (hopefully).

Deadlock 3 would be awesome. We can dream but how likely is that - after all these years and with all the different competing titles?

I wouldn't mind playing Deadlock II online, Kitsune. I'll have to look at the options to play multiplayer over the internet, Hamachi has been suggested. I will be pretty busy for the next two weeks or so, but after that I should have time. It's getting towards the end of the year, so who knows, maybe some other forum members will be interested in getting into the fray! SonOfDon could use some incentive to play DL2. ;)

Bear in mind, I am okay at Deadlock II, but not as good as I am at Deadlock I.

Strange, they always seem to attack me with tons of units right at the beginning, it could just be the difficulty level I play at.
Tarth cooks make best strudel, barbecue, bean dip, fish, cat food, smelt, piston rings, tofu and cam shafts...

Perhaps I don't have the most updated version or something. I can't even get the interactive video sequences to work. :(

I've used Hamachi in the past for other programs and found that it is pretty effective. But I don't have it anymore, so I don't know what updates it has had over the past several years.

For difficulty, I've played all levels, even hindering myself and uber boosting all 7 AI at once to see how I would handle it. They didn't act all that different tbh.

Edit - and I know I'm not that good at the game!!!
