No more tech support, sorry. DXN-AE (aka Deus Ex: Minimum or Deus Ex: Nihilum - Abridged Edition) is the extensively truncated and improved realization of the Hong Kong city section from the beginning of Deus Ex: Nihilum.
DXN-AE (aka Deus Ex: Minimum or Deus Ex: Nihilum - Abridged Edition) is the extensively truncated and improved realization of the Hong Kong city section from the beginning of Deus Ex: Nihilum.
While featuring vastly improved content compared to the original mod, DXN-AE ultimately failed at its original goals ( A) replacing the voiceacting of Mad Ingram and Yakedo B) getting thousands of downloads ) and instead became my vehicle to irritate people complaining about Deus Ex: Revision. To my further dismay, it didn't fare properly at this goal either, and I couldn't even pay for a nice cup of curry with my earnings from this mod. Oy.
Take a look!
If the FAQ doesn't open up to you - don't worry. I'd say you missed nothing.
In all seriousness, after replaying DXN-AE for the first time since August 2015 - I honestly think that it really is a far more improved version of Deus Ex: Nihilum's Hong Kong section - even though it doesn't have voice acting at all for Mad Ingram and Yakedo. It might have gotten a better chance in a different time, and with voice acting it could have been incorporated into DXN itself.
But alas, 'twas not meant... to be.
Q: What did you change?
A: I changed nothing.
Q: The mod doesn't even launch!
A: You have to remove dxnaelogo.bmp from the \DeusEx\Help directory if this happens.
Q: I assume some character is supposed to show up when the levels change, but nothing happens?
A: In this case, you have to save your game immediately in the beginning of the level and load it right after. No idea why this bug occurs - it also appeared within the main mod itself way back in 2011, but in time the bug just disappeared on its own. Weird beans.
Q: Your antics resulted in people giving your mods low ratings. What does this make you feel?
Q: If you could go back in time and do something differently with this mod, what would you do?
A: I'd probably have worked more on the DXN-AE treatment of the NYC level.
Q: Why are you reuploading this mod anyway, considering that you removed it in the first place and got the original mod project page removed?
A: For the first question of this FAQ.
Q: I still don't like this mod.
A: Whether you like a mod or not is solely up to you. Whether you play it in one way or the other is solely up to you. The author doesn't have a say in the matter, and neither does anyone else. Never give up your agency and own identity. :]
Q: Whatever, I still think that you're an ass-kisser and a Chuwero.
A: : |
Q: Despite DXN itself having 10k+ downloads, there's no indication that anyone has actually bothered playing this one. How do you plead?
A: It's a shame, but what can you do? Yet it makes perfect sense - everyone who was meant to play DXN already did so in 2013 and expressed their thoughts about it at the time.
