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 11 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.

2x Datavault images

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.

Hey DX fans. Since the news does not appear to be displaying here on the main Deus Ex page for what I assume to be because of a technical glitch, I'll let you know in the comments that GMDX v5 Gameplay modification of Deus Ex was released a couple of days ago. Check it out!

Greetings everyone. After playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut, I feel the need to play the original all over again. I've experimented with various mods in the past. The thing is, I have a major issue with the UI. Basically increasing the resolution decreases the size of the fonts in the game, mod or no mod. I love immersing myself in this game but it's really difficult to do that when I can barely read any of the data cubes, emails, bulletin boards, newspapers or notes from the HUD. Is there any way to resolve this without installing any mods? If the only way to resolve this is by installing a mod, then which one? I really appreciate any advice/ suggestions given. Thanks.

It appears that I found an answer for my own query. For anyone interested, I recently tried the Deus Ex Enhanced v2.0.0 w/ HDTP beta compatibility mod. (I installed New Vision and Shifter first). This mod appears to do the trick, to an extent. Still, if anyone knows of any alternatives, please feel free to reply.

Saracen-Rue, you beat me to it :-) I'm shamelessly plugging my mod unifiedDeusEx (see Moddb.com); it does include double-sized UI and sharp fonts from dxEnhanced, and replaces UI icons & textures with high-quality ones. That's what I use myself to play Deus Ex 1 :-))))

Try Unified Deus Ex, it continues with the resolution solutions seen in Deus Ex Enhanced and has compatibility with various other mods.
