Description

Deus Ex: Nihilum (DXN, DEN or Nihilum for short) is a First Person Shooter mod taking place in an alternate Deus Ex continuity. It features new made-from-scratch original content, while also extensively featuring material from the UNATCO Born mod (used with permission from fender2k1, UB's project leader) and Deus Ex: Revision (used in accordance with the mod's license).


It is highly recommended that you install Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 runtimes before installing the mod!


In 2049, unsavory conditions are rampant throughout the world. As soon as it becomes clear that a terrorist attack in Shenzhen, China, was carried out by perpetrators with ties to international groups and that Hong Kong may be their next target - the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) dispatches their first nano-augmented agent, Mad Ingram, into the city to prevent the situation from escalating any further.

Deus Ex: Nihilum (DXN, DEN or Nihilum for short) is a First Person Shooter mod taking place in an alternate Deus Ex continuity. It features new made-from-scratch original content, while also extensively featuring material from the UNATCO Born mod (used with permission from fender2k1, UB's project leader) and Deus Ex: Revision (used in accordance with the mod's license).

The files for Deus Ex: Nihilum have been packaged with the file archiver 7-Zip. If you do not have this program, download it from this link!

* Over 13,000 downloads in its first year!*
* Completely new score with 80+ tracks (over 2 hours of music
)
* 2,200+ lines (more than 3.5 hours of audio)
* 7-13 hours of gameplay (estimate based on testers' playthrough times)
* Three new weapons: the Walther P99 pistol, Light Machine Gun 2049, Gauss Gun (EMP)
- Exploration is everything! Treat the levels as mazes and prepare for back-tracking! While it can be baffling that people are leaving valuable items and other belongings out in the open, agent Ingram doesn't seem to mind!
- Save often and use several savegame slots! This will hopefully save you a lot of time when it comes to handling certain odd issues.
- Encrypted datacubes: Remember, once you've hacked an encrypted datacube, you have to click on it again to make the datacube information window disappear.
- General rule on hacking: Keep in mind that you do not need this skill to advance the main plot itself. However, its general usefulness cannot be underestimated!


[Updated on June 13th 2013 to include Patch 1.2 content]

* = Combined download count from ModDB, Atomic Gamer, P2M Haszkod and Player Attack was 13,055 on the mod's first anniversary on May 28th 2014

I also have extremely high expectations of this mod after playing the nameless mod. I feel like the later a mod comes out after the game comes out the better. This mod is coming out how long after deus ex was released? It's almost a 15 year aniversary mod

Why can't I set the resolution to 1920x1080? I have it set to that in the launcher but when the game loads it is 640x480 and 1600x1024 is the highest....

Odd, haven't heard of that issue before (I was able to choose 1920x1080 just fine from the launcher, though). Perhaps you could ask Kentie about the issue? ( Kentie.net )

Nono, I can select the resolution in the launcher just fine, but when the game actually loads it is not the resolution I've set. When I use the DeusEx original .exe it loads fine with the launcher's settings, it is only Nihilum's exe that won't load the set resolution for some reason.

Huh. No idea. :\

You could always trying copying the DeusEx.exe again (whether Kentie's launcher or not) and renaming the copy as fgrhk.exe.

And if that doesn't work, well, try opening the intro level of DXN (59_Intro) from DeusEx.exe and then starting a new game there (where you should be able to customize your character).

Do you have an enhanced DirectX/OpenGL renderer in use? If not, you should try it first. Cwdohnal.com

Also check your INI-files in your My Documents/Deus Ex folder.

To anyone who is having issues with adjusting brightness - trying to change your rendering device ingame will just change the original Deus Ex.

To change DXN's rendering device, go to the Deus Ex directory: DeusEx -> fgrhk -> System then open the configuration file 'fgrhk'.

Here you can edit GameRenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice to another renderer (can be found further down in the file), for example GameRenderDevice=D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice, this worked for me.

Don't know if anyone else is having this issue but thought I'd just post it here.

It's probably the general "sometimes the file hosted at GameFront gets corrupted" issue that seems to be common on ModDB. Try other mirrors than the GameFront one here: Moddb.com

If that doesn't help, try downloading version 1.0 from this link: Shacknews.com and the 1.1 patch from ModDB (or Shack News once again: Shacknews.com )

When I try to run the game I get the following error message.

I have over 555 gigs free on my hard drive. What could be causing this.

Tried the Page File Solution, set it to 8 gig, it did not work. Also tried from a completely fresh install which also did not work. I have 8Gigs of ram. And i checked task manager and nothing is eating up an inordinate amount of ram. The Crash is acting EXACTLY like the old TNM crash. One other thing it only happens when loading the Nihilim INI & Log I am running on Windows 7 64Bit if it makes any difference.

I have tried installing Kentie's EXE, DX10 Render, & the C++ Runtimes separately rather than through the installer. Same deal. The issue is unique to this mod. Its acting EXACTLY like the issue described in that thread. Crashing as soon as i launch the actual game.

Very odd issues (and your rig is better than mine for that matter!), and I'm all out of options :[

Aside from some straws that might help:

1) Have you tried running the fgrhk.exe under any compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3, 2000 etc.)?

2) Even though the installer is programmed to make a copy of your DeusEx.exe (in the DeusEx\System folder) and rename it fgrhk.exe, you could try doing the process manually.

3) Possibly even d/l Kentie's launcher straight from the source ( Kentie.net ) and rename the exe as fgrhk.exe in the DeusEx\System folder.

4) Kentie's launcher also makes copies of the INIs in My Documents, have you tried removing/editing those?

Really enjoying this so far, the design and gameplay is very much like Deus Ex, and the choice of locations so far has been quite nice and varied. Top job FastGamerr! :)

I've come across a few bugs so far (using 1.2), mostly DirectX10 lighting bugs but I won't mention those since that's not on your side. One bug I came across recently was when exiting XVA HQ and you proceed back down the Manhole, if you open and close that covering over and over you will be rewarded with 300 skill points each time. I'm sure this must just be how DX uses its triggers and events.

Ouch! Unlike the original game and Redsun2020, I really tried to avoid bugs like that in DXN (a certain similar credits bug is actually half-intentional). Doesn't warrant a full new update but I'll keep it in mind if I ever have to make one :] Glad to hear you've liked the mod in general, too!

I got around to finishing this over the last few days, and I enjoyed it very much. The overall somber tone helped with the Deus Ex feel, the areas were big and open (With some very sneaky hidden areas, nice!), the overall detail was quite nice (bar a few misleading doors and areas). The difficulty was good overall but did find it had a few spikes here and there, where it took a good while to get past enemies sneakily.
The length of the adventure is good, rivalling the majority of most AAA Games these days, but some of that may be just how Deus Ex is played ;)
The story was interesting and very conspiracy like, some good characters which unfortunately aren't revisited or seen again. I do think the game got a little bit Meta at some points but I guess that's what you were going for so no complaints on that!
The only thing that brought it down for me was Ingrams Voice. While the VO is good in some lines of dialogue, the majority of time I had to skip past conversations and read from the log, because the voice just started to grate after a while.

For me, Nihilum is up there with TNM, Zodiac and Redsun, is good fun throughout most of the adventure and has a brilliant soundtrack to boot!

(Sorry if this is a little long!)

There seems to be a problem with Kenties launcher's latest version and this mod. "Settings" and "Credits" buttons in the game menu are rendered on top of each other and the font of options is too big. I'm using version 5.3 of the launcher and D3D 10 renderer version 28. My screen resolution is 1900x1080. Other mods I am currently using are New Vision 1.5, Shifter and DX Enhanced. They work without problems with the base game. HDTP is however disabled because it causes problems with game menu.
