Hello zoidburj!

Please post what operating system you are using.

Is it Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, ReactOS, some WINE Environment or something else?

This glitch is known to happen on these systems but Deadlock 2 should work fine on older Windows systems.

There are a few solutions, but they depend on your actual operating system.

Hello zoidburj,


It is recommended to try this solution first:
DDrawCompat.
Extract the ddraw.zip into Deadlock 2's executable directory and try running it.

More information: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=372#p984

If it doesn't work, there are two another solutions you can try:

DxWnd:
