Generic DL1 SAV Converter

Dear GalliusIV members, I am glad to announce that we have received requests to support old save games since early 1996, which would effectively make the testing team of the original Deadlock happy to revive their efforts and replay their games. Imagine their tears of happiness when they find to be ...

Re: Deadlock 2 Demo Upgrade Patch

Hello MildewMan1, I am glad you are also interested in improving DL2. To be honest, the DirectDraw issue is not a problem to me because I usually play using a VM (specially because it is limited at 640x480). In any case, we had reports that by using the ddraw.dll file provided by one of these projec...

Deadlock 2 Demo Upgrade Patch

Hello GalliusIV members. I am aware that while some prefer Deadlock 1, I am pretty sure that almost everyone here likes Deadlock 2. The Deadlock 2 Demo is commonly used by me to decode the structures of Deadlock 2 because it features debugging symbols. However, this debug feature is not important to...

Re: Does anyone know about networking?

Re: Does anyone know about networking?

Hello MildewMan1, at first, many congrats on your partial successes! I'm not sure if this is because of a deadlock in my network code Pun intended? :lol: About the issues you are encountering, you need to remember that TCP uses blocking calls. Yet, I admit I have never played a 7 player game ever. I...
