its because of the netcode that people are not playing, when the multiplayer update came out alot of people were playing but most stopped after they experienced the latency issues.

That sucks I remember my dad telling me how much fun it was online back in the day.

it runs fine if you are playing lan, online multiplayer has latency issues even with people playing in the same country.

It's a hit or miss really. Sometimes I join games that are full and feel completely fine, sometimes they feel horrible and the game isn't full, etc. Who knows what is really up with the net play, but it still needs work.

This, I have the GOG version of Duke as well as this, and my friend and I experienced a bit of lag with the original via DOSBox (GOG included a handy little tool that lets one player host and the other join via IP address), but still playable.

I tried the Megaton Multiplayer a bit when it was in beta. I had lag issues too. When it was finalized, I made note to read the sticky. Since my friend and I who played the GOG Duke live in the same town (good IRL friends too), he bought the Megaton Edition and we've been playing online since. Been smooth most of the time, a bit of lag here and there, but lots of fun.

If you have RL friend who lives nearby and has Steam, recommend them to play, or even gift them the game. The closer the players are, the better the connection!

Remember, this game uses P2P, this is not like most shooters where one can just join a server and play (no lobbies hosted, means empty "Join Lobby" list). Steam is doing is the matchmaking stuff, like inviting friends or browsing for a lobby to play in, the connection is still the same as the original, minus the need to use a friend's IP address.

Read more about multiplayer in the sticky, I don't usually tell others to read stickies, but the Multiplayer one is a bit useful. ^^
