The year is 2052 and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly, killing thousands; drugs, disease and pollution kill even more. The world's economies are close to collapse and the gap between the insanely wealthy and the desperately poor grows ever wider. Worst of all, an ages old conspiracy bent on world domination has decided that the time is right to emerge from the shadows and take control. No one believes they exist. No one but you.

About Deus Ex: Revision with 7 comments by bjorn98009_91 on Sep 16th, 2014

Hello all!

Welcome to our September update.

Since our previous update in July, we've finished production on our soundtrack. Both the in-game files and album versions are completed and implemented, so unless we find further issues with it, that part of the project is pretty much done. The album, which consists of a series of suite arrangements, is going to be available on Bandcamp and some other venues (such as YouTube and SoundCloud) when we are ready to release the mod.

In mapping news, we are still working on the exterior Area 51 location. Progress there has been slow, as it's a large map and our environment designer has been busy with his personal obligations. It is close to being done, and compared to the original map, has nearly tripled in playable area. We have also tackled the bug list quite a bit, and coding-wise some bits and pieces have been optimized and trimmed. Various other improvements have been made to a wide variety of the other maps such as implementing our own wish-list items, adding decoration and improving on the assortment of ambient sounds in the game.

Area 51 Overview comparison

The playable area has been vastly expanded.

We are also proud to present that in collaboration with unifiedDX we have implemented switchable 1x/2x UI sizes. For those with a resolution of 1280x960 or above (note that both the height and width have to be larger) can use the new 2x graphics mode so that texts, menus and other screens will be readable.  Our graphics artist has also been busy recently with creating new 2x Davavault images in addition to the 1x that will be used by default. These new datavaults will contain more details then their 1x counterparts due to being 800x800 compared to 400x400.

As an example of lingering technical difficulties I've personally struggled with, I’ll talk about a BSP issue in the Paris Cathedral map. A BSP issue is where the world geometry is not assembled correctly by the Unreal editor. This particular error occurred after I went in to fix a texture misalignment on a “mover” object, which requires having the editor reassemble or “rebuild” the map. After the rebuild I discovered the BSP error tearing up a piece of a house near the canal in the map. A lot of time and effort went into trying to solve it by changing surface solidity and the positioning of brushes (geometry details) on the house, with several attempts at rebuilding it (each rebuild takes around 15 minutes). When that didn’t solve the issue, I finally gave up and removed some brushes on the house, namely a set of windows. That solved the problem, but then another issue came up with house nearby. As much if not more time went into fixing that second house, creating zone portals for all the windows, changing solidity and so on. When that was finally settled I found out when testing that the entire map was accidentally flooded due to a leaking water zone- although the method of fixing the issue is quite different, it is a remarkably similar problem to the real-world circumstance. And that's what I am working to solve right now.

Flooded Cathedral

I’m looking forward to sharing more with you all as we begin to finish finishing Revision.

I attempted to play Deus Ex again, recently. Everything worked fine at the installation and startup, until the screen where one selects the graphics driver (Direct X or OpenGL). No matter what I choose, my computer somehow sees an empty CD/DVD-drive.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 with 1GB RAM, DVD R/RW, 80 GB HDD,
Graphics (copy&pasted from the chip's system info, in case it might help):
Accelerator in Use: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family
Video BIOS: 1343

O, and my notebook came degraded from the suppliers with Vista. I have tried running as administrator and in compatibility mode for XP and for 98/ME and for 95.

Could anyone help me on this? I really wish to play DX again.

I think the game automatically sets the drive to D: or to the drive from which you installed it. So if you have two drives, put the CD-rom into the other drive. If that doesn't work, change "CdPath=D:" to "CdPath=" in DeusEx.ini (C:\DeusEx\System by default). This only works with full installation. And if THAT doesn't work, you can always try a crack.

Deus Ex is an excellent game. There's lots of gameplay and elements from many genres (FPS,RPG,etc.). The environment is highly interactive: you can pick up, carry, use and destroy almost everything as well as talk to most people. There are lots of weapons, items and upgrades (such as weapon modification kits and augmentations). The storyline is an essential part of gameplay and sometimes you have a freedom to choose what you will do - the game has several endings. There are also lots of conversations and missions. The environments are also rich in variety (cities, research facilities, etc.). All in all, Deus Ex is, or should be, a classic.

one of the best games ever. the mix of rpg and fps is nearly flawless, and multiple paths through each senario, as well as a long campaign, add to a surprising amount of replayability. seriously, why did no one follow in this game's footsteps?!?!

Because nobody cares about gameplay anymore, and I can pretty much guarantee you that deus ex 3 will be another cash in just like the second one was..

Im not even trying to be cynical here people, but didn't deus ex teach you anything? stop being so optimistic.

Deus ex 2 was released a couple of years ago, although not as good as first, And the third is WIP and hopefully will live up to the first.

Warren Spector is not working on Deus Ex 3. ION Storm Austin no longer exists, and DX3 is being developed by Eidos Montreal.

Pardon the necro-post.
