7 comments by Jerion on Apr 2nd, 2015

A lot has happened since December and we have exciting news. We have two new additions to our team, a new programmer and a new 3D artist.

Our new programmer Hanfling joined us late last year to fix bugs in native Deus Ex code. However, this has evolved into the creation of a full featured Deus Ex content creation framework called the Revision Framework. Its roadmap includes support for features found in all current game engines such as terrain, static meshes, deferred lighting and fancy materials to push Deus Ex: Revision visuals to a whole new level.

Cyrus -- the other new guy -- will pitch in to make use of these features, and create tons of static meshes, while adding content that Project HDTP didn’t cover. Right now he is working on:

Gunther and Anna

To make full use of the scheduled engine features we need to remake or at least update most of the content already created. However the whole team is excited to make use of the new features and make Deus Ex: Revision the best Deus Ex incarnation of all time.

Edit: As you many have realized, this was an April Fool's post; we won't delay Revision for any new features.However most of the post is correct, Hanfling is working with us to make the Revision Framework and the long term goals are to include the mentioned features, but that would be years into the future. Currently it's mostly a WIP framework for mods to easily and properly integrate into the game without having to replace DeusEx.u. It will also improve the editing workflow with a new set of tools. It will not be used in the 1.0 release and we'll only lift a few features from it, such as a fix for incorrect footstep sounds and UI scaling.

We also do have a new 3D artist named Cyrus that joined us a few weeks ago, and he is currently working on replacing some vanilla models, however certainly nothing as indicated by the picture above.
We are very close to release right now and beta testers will be contacted shortly. More info soon to come :)

BSP Errors?

BSP Errors are bugs regarding level design, for example "missing polygons, invisible collision, lack of collision, spots you just die on for no reason, etc"

Essentially, the cumspawn of Satan that ruins everything beautiful. Many a vision has been demolished due to the BSP goblin and its evil ilk. EVIL!

(No, I will never forgive BSP holes for making me cut back on the visuals in Deus Ex: Nihilum - which is also why my JK project, TODOA, looks far better. OUTRAGE!)

It's Saturday now, and only two days left for playtesting. What sorts of bugs have been reported and what kind of gameplay issues the testers have? I haven't seen any updates on the launchpad page.

Are they minor ones or stuff like the Paris Cathedral? Also, have you entered the OceanLab or Area 51 yet?

No they are minor ones. I just started Chapter 9 by the way (so no I have not entered Oceanlab or Area 51)

lol, hopefully not. I've only seen three BSPs and I've actually fixed all of them.

The launchpad page is going to be shut down, we don't really use it. Bugs in the future can be sent to us privately and we'll use our internal bug tracking system to manage those. It was great as our previous way of managing bugs was horrible, but we are constantly on the move to find systems that we are pleased with.

Below is the changelog for the patch that went out to the testers earlier, but it only lists changes from when the beta was sent out to the patch, not what has changed since the last public release. Such a changelog will never be made.
