Lost Planet 2 is a third-person shooter, action-adventure game, developed and published by Capcom. This visually beauty is a sequel to the Lost Planet:Extreme Conditioning, the game which burned my GPU, and also one of the resource hungry games of its time.
Anyway, the story is set 10 years after the events of the original game on the same fictional planet, but this time you will be able to see green side of the planet. Yeah! finally, and the game also features System Link/LAN support.
So, if you are up for a friendly meet up, and want to play the game online, you can use Hamachi or Tunngle, guide on how to setup them up is right below this line.

Lost Planet 2 Hamachi Tunngle Guide
First, delete teknogods.dll entry from App_Init_dlls, needed if you had previous version of TeknoGods beta, otherwise skip to next step.
Run Lost Planet 2.
If you are the one hosting, launch Lost Planet 2 and host the game. Host does not need to do anything else, not even use the “DLL loader”.
Those who want to connect to a hosted game need to minimize their game by pressing “Alt+Tab” key and start the TeknoGods loader(DLLLoad) file in archive you downloaded earlier.
You can also use TeknoHelper to setup everything automatically, it is included in the archive.
How to Setup Everything With TeknoHelper
Execute the teknohelper.exe and you will see that the program has 4 checks in place. Get VPN/Get All filter, click the button and it will check for all the VPN software, you have installed.
Once it has found any VPN, it will be displayed in the window above. Select Tunngle/Hamachi,VPN of your choice and click “Set Adapter Key” that is if you are haven’t had previous version of TeknoGods Beta installed.
If you had previous version of teknogods beta installed on your computer, click “Clear Registry Key” first for your selected VPN software, once it has deleted teknogods.dll entry from App_Init_dlls, click “Set Adapter Key”.
Once the registry key is set, you will see a green tick underneath second check. Now click “re(Start) Loader” to execute DLLLoad.exe, it will ask you to launch the game in 30 seconds, so go ahead and do so. Once all the four checks have green tick underneath, you have set up everything correctly.
Check Your Setup
Start the game. Press the ‘Home’ key. Then click settings, then Network Information. Next to Network Adapter it should say ‘Hamachi/Tunngle (registry override)’. Next to ‘Local IP Address’ it should show your Hamachi/Tunngle IP.
