Trivia

Bugs

Known bugs as of version 1.31 (from patch readme.txt):

Deadlock doesn't terminate completely on exit. Upon exiting a multi-player game of Deadlock, if you try launching a second game of Deadlock the message "Cannot run multiple instances of a DLL under Win32s" appears. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up the Win95 task list. Select and END any running Deadlock tasks. You can now play Deadlock again. [Win95 only; on TEN & Mplayer online services]

Cover misprint

Some CDs of Deadlock: Planetary Conquest have the designation "Retail Demo" printed on them by mistake.

Demo version

If the game was played without the CD, a demo of the game was available to play. However, the demo was so limited that it defeated its own purpose.

Development

During the game's development, there was some discussion about making it a real-time strategy game, instead of a turn-based one.
