The patch is now live! The following issues are addressed in this update:

  • Added raw input to address mouse acceleration issues. This is still experimental, you must manually activate it by opening up Revision.ini found in the System folder (Browse Local Files), and then edit the ViewportManager line under [Engine.Engine] to read ViewportManager=WinDrvLite.WindowsClientLite.
    If you encounter new issues relating to input, hangs or crashes try switching back to the old ViewportManager and see if the issues go away (you can comment out lines with semicolon). If they are not present in the old ViewportManager make sure to let us know so we can try and locate the issue with the new one.
  • Fixed the Shifter/Biomod crash that happened after training.
  • Fixed the Shifter/Biomod crash when carrying containers (crates mostly) across maps sometimes.
  • Changed mouse sensitivity slider with range of 0.1-0.9 in increments of 0.1, might be useful for the new raw input.
  • Various localization fixes including fixing the incorrect text in Biomod that the previous patch introduced.
  • Fixed an issue where the laser dot would erroneously appear onscreen after applying a laser sight mod to a weapon that you did not have equipped.
  • Made it harder to get out of the playable area in later instances of Liberty Island, also fixed a small AI pathfinding issue in those levels.
  • Fixed being able to give orders to Miguel in the last instance of Liberty Island. * Pallet Jacks now show a selection box.
  • Fixed an issue where the crosshair settings box was 10px too large.

Please note:

As a general reminder, when game content is updated in a patch, it cannot affect locations you have already visited in a saved game. This is because the saved game was created based on the older version of the game, and acts as a snapshot of that older version. Once you load a saved game and travel to a new location in the game world, you will begin to encounter the updated content. Patch is live Patch is live

I do not know if it is allowed to post links to edited DRM-free .exe files(please don't ban me!), but below is the link to Update + updated & DRM-free Revision.exe (doesn't require Steam!) - .

Having to make DRM-free .exe files for a MOD is seriously lame! Why couldn't it be a Steam release, but without Steam DRM!?!?!?

Well I think you've beaten this horse to death by now. You've made your position on the matter well-known and then some. The developer has made clear they have no intention of reversing their position. Its their mod, and while it may be upsetting to you, there's nothing to stop you from rolling your own.

Might be a good time to finally move on from this DRM issue. You pretty much have two choices, either accept it or move along.

oh come on, you're playing Deus Ex where you hacking things all the time. Need to hack some ****** windows exe? Piece of cake.
But seriously, why bitching again about steam/DRM? You could just leave the link with description and enjoy having upvotes, and everyone else could enjoy playing the game :)

Just finished the game (with Biomod). Well, that was one great experience, thank you! :)
Played with DirectX 10 renderer, with HDTP and New Vision.
Had some framerate issues when a LOT of things were on-screen, and sometimes it was too dark (or my monitor has wrong contrast settings).

Never had steam client installed:)

Glad you enjoyed it! DirectX 10 has performance issues (compared to DirectX 9), that's one of the reasons why we did not include it. It also makes the game slightly darker with ClassicLighting turned on.

Is anybody aware of whether the revision.exe contained in the patch is required for the correct functioning of the patch (contains actual bugfixes) or is it just a re-release of the DRM? I notice the file size has changed from the original 1.0 revision.exe.

I used the package to patch all the files except revision.exe, started a new game, and everything seems to be working (including the previously mentioned bug related to BioMod) but I'm just not sure if I'm going to be missing some of the bug fixes, or if I'm going to run into a showstopper at some point later in the game.

If anybody knows the answer, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Nah, it's just slight stability improvements like it won't crash if some .int files are missing and it includes new memory allocation logic (that might work better on Win10) that you can activate with switches like -NoVirtualFree

For the love of God, release a normal .exe that doesn't require the use of Steam! I move my Deus Ex folder all the time and Steam can't recognize new locations/directories no matter how hard I point it to that folder/location/directory! I have to RE-DOWNLOAD REVISION EACH FRAKING TIME I MOVE THE FOLDER. THIS IS RETARDED!!!!! Why can't you release a non-DRM .exe??!?! Its not like it actually does ANYTHING OTHER THAN ANNOY PEOPLE.

Steam DRM alone is why this mod is getting a 2/10 rating from me. It sucks so bad that it makes a lot more sense of getting a pirated version of the game and cracked mod .exe.

MonarchX Nov 17 2015 replied:

I need re-organize my files quite often for personal reasons. The point is that Revision's DRM and inability being detected like other Steam games is a giant bug developers don't seem interested in fixing. They released a "stand-alone" version of the game, which isn't even stand-alone and requires Steam! Why call it "Stand-alone" then? Its a very frustrating mod to deal with due to developers' poor decisions that I've been questioning and foretelling before the mod was ever released.

So keep a backup of whatever exe you use and when you update then just restore the exe from the backup? I don't see the issue with that?

It's not a bug, SE requested that we should be Steam exclusive, so that's what we are doing. It even says on the standalone page that it requires the Steam version, if people then want to gab it and "crack" it then that's up to them.

You need an updated DRM-free GOG .exe each time a new patch comes out and GOG updates with needed & updated DRM-free .exe are usually slow to come out, not to mention that you either need to already own a GOG version of the game or know someone who does or wait a long time before some warez forum uploads IF it ever uploads. Hell, I do not even know if GOG Deus Ex GOTY can use Revision mod and its updates, let alone come with DRM-free .exe files each time an updated is released. Its a serious hassle!

What are these new Patch Windows 10 settings? I assume Mouse Acceleration has not been removed because its hard-coded into the game...

Why do you need an updated GOG exe? What is wrong with the one you used before? We update our launcher when we need to, to include new features or improve stability. It's not as if GOG updates their launcher with our improvements.

The new launcher fixes some rare crashes like if certain .int files are not present (due to the user removing them) and it includes new memory logic that can be activated by adding -NoVirtualFree to the launch options. This may or may not work better on Win10, we don't know.

An experimental mouse acceleration setting will be released shortly in the next hotfix. I can't really tell if it works as expected as I don't really notice any difference (I never had acceleration issues in the first place).

Are you serious??? If you made changes to Steam's DRM-protected Revision.exe with the latest patches, then using OLDER Revision.exe from GOG would not include the updates - it would be a mismatch of versions! Its so basic! If Steam Revision.exe version is and instead I use GOG Revision.exe version (because GOG .exe is nowhere to be found), then it won't come with changes made in .exe file!!! It can ALSO (possibly) mess up the game if all other files from Steam update / stand-alone update have been updated to version, requiring Revision.exe to be, NOT

This is BEYOND basic and yet you're tell me I'm the one who doesn't know how to use computers? I think even the dumbest kid with warez-ed Game X version 1.0 (for example) knows that if he/she is to patch Game X to version 1.5 (or whatever), then he/she needs to use the APPROPRIATE .EXE CRACK version 1.5 and NOT 1.0!

No offense, but how could you have developed this mod, created updates, and done all this work without understanding the most basic ideas of file version matching?

It would be OK to use older DRM-free Revision.exe from GOG if a newer version of Revision.exe was not included in the latest update, but a new Revision.exe WAS included. If its the same version as 1.0 or in update, then why the hell did you include it in update package???

I've heavily modded several games from Skyrim to Fallout to GTA IV / V without any problems and making these mods together through different tools and apps was a lot more complicated than using your mod for Deus Ex, except that they actually worked as intended.

Ok, you are misinformed. There is no GOG version, there is simply a leaked version of Revision.exe that did not have the DRM. It also so happened to be the exe we shipped for 1.0 (with the DRM ofc), as there had not been any changes since it was leaked to 1.0. You make it sound like it's some official GOG exe they've made for Revision. As I said, it's a maintenance update only, simply to polish some stuff under the hood. Using the older exe still works fine since it's just internal changes in the exe and nothing that affects other components.

Sure, if you want the new memory allocation option for Win10 then yes you will need the new exe. However since I'm involved here I know better then you how important this new exe is, and it's not really that important at all.

Contrary to popular belief you don't have to match files exactly. Say if I replaced a map in the latest release with one from 1.0 it would most likely still work, it all depends on what has changed. If it's just stuff internally that has changed like moving code around or adjusting texture alignments then it doesn't matter. If there however are changes to how the code/map interacts with OTHER components, then it might matter. There are no such changes in this release. We simply included it in the update so people on Win10 that had crashes could try the new memory allocation option to see if that helps or not.

This is for patch, but I assume there will be more patches and even though I may not benefit from new Windows 10 Revision.exe settings (no crashes here), I may end up stuck with GOG Revision 1.0 .exe. Hell, I wouldn't even know or benefit from Revision.exe that came with earlier and / or 1.0.1 Patches! Do you know for sure whether future Revision.exe will come with only small-changes, not affecting the rest of the files if they were would be updated and not matching (or even working) GOG Revision.exe 1.0???

I also described a severe problem earlier - inability to use Upgrade Canisters. That was a bug I experienced when I used GOG Revision.exe 1.0 after the mod was updated to So far nobody else got that bug and you can't tell me whether it was due to Revision.exe mismatch. Who knows, maybe GOG Revision.exe 1.0 wasn't cracked that well and contains errors.

All in all, this IS a problem, even for legit Steam Deus Ex GOTY + Revision Mod owners such as myself.

I tried some other methods to run Revision with Kentie's launcher, but that caused even more problems.

I do not know what future updates to the launcher will include, simply cause we've not come to that point yet. I'm sure that a lot of stuff will be implementable in out other native packages like Revision.dll. For instance the raw input (mouse acceleration fix) is in WinDrvLite.dll. We'll just cross that bridge when we come to it.

I want a video of this upgrade canister behavior so I can see it in action. The only thing the launcher does it to run the main loop to tick the engine and then it also does some file handling. It doesn't contain any game logic at all. Again, that launcher wasn't cracked, it was leaked.

If you have it on steam, then why simply not just use the launcher that comes with the mod? Why mess with using other ones?!

MonarchX Nov 17 2015 replied:

I was among the first people to provide information on how to play Revision without Steam, but that method required an .exe from GOG, which was no longer suitable after Patch came out. In addition to that, developers were unable to confirm whether using GOG .exe on Steam version would result or not result in any kind of bugs, some of which broke my game entirely by making all Aug. Upgrades Canisters unusable. That is why I stuck to Steam version of the game and the mod. Do your research before pulling facts out of your anus. I may be agitated, I admit it, but nothing I said was untrue. When you point Steam to directories of games found in different Steam Games folders, moat games work, even Deus Ex GOTY works, but not Revision. All because of its retarded and unnecessary DRM, which developers refuse to remove for whatever dumb reason.

I can't make any guarantees about how other launchers work with Revision, that's totally "on your own risk". It was designed to use our launcher, so features may or may not work with others (like music was broken with Kentie's, but we fixed that due to popular request).

Honestly though I just think you just don't know how to play. Nobody else except you have had any issues with the aug upgrades and I've read a lot of bug reports and complains (we even have more then 500 issues open in our bugtracker).

As I said before it's either Steam, and only Steam or no Steam at all. And we've decided to go with Steam. Not only cause we can reach a hell of a lot of people (then we could not reach if going with moddb/our site), but also due to auto-patching that's super awesome that assures that people always have the latest patch installed and that provide users with the latest fixes as hassle-free as possible.

Contrary to public opinion I actually care about the players, that's why I'm almost working non-stop to fix stuff and push patches all the time. I could just as well just said "**** this, I'm out of here" but I'm not that kind of guy.

If you have a little know-how (basically just fumbling around with files), this mod is easy to install without Steam. If you have no know-how, this mod is easy to install without Steam using Kentie's Deus Exe. All in all, it's easy to install. It delivers on its premise - it remixes all of the Deus Ex levels in a believable way. It raises the graphic fidelity of the mod, thanks to smart design, New Vision and HDTP. It's basically Deus Ex: Master Quest. It's a fantastic mod that doesn't temper with…
