42 comments by Jerion on Jun 24th, 2015

Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.

[July 9 Update]

A few of you have been expressing concerns that Revision is related to Mankind Divided or will be a paid-for release. Neither of these things is the case- we have no involvement in the promotion of Mankind Divided, and have never considered making Revision a commercial product. We are not providing precise release dates for a pretty straightforward reason: We're holding some confidential talks with Square Enix to make sure everything is okay, and to make something cool happen, something that we aren't talking about yet, because it's not finalized yet. We've been having a series of back-and-forths to make sure that everybody on our team is happy. There are no real problems, just technicalities that have needed to be ironed out. At this point (July 9), we're expecting these things to be wrapped up shortly.

Everything is pretty much OK, and we're in a position where we have to talk to some people to make some things happen, and the timeline for making those things happen should be pretty fast, but is partially out of our control. All we ask of you is to please be patient.

Its the first of August and this mod is nowhere, absolutely nowhere, to be seen. No news - nothing, just one hyped mod that supposedly was fixed a long time ago and from what it seems, being canceled by the original developers/publishers because mod developers made a mistake and reached out to those people, who had no interest in allowing something like a Deus Ex Revision to be released to public. The mod was just too good and put a negative spin on Deus Ex, portraying it as a buggy, unoptimized, unfinished, graphically-poor, and abandoned game.

Come on! February, March, April, May, June, July - holy hell! All these months were supposed to be release months!

Revision = NeverVision.

Ok MonarchX first of all STOP BEING A BITCH TO THE DEV's!!!!

secondly deus ex could be seen as a buggy, unoptimized, unfinished, graphically-poor game, cant be viewed as abandoned though. If you knew the history behind the game you would know it was made over a long period of time with a guy and his friends in the attic of one of their homes, it wasn't a fully published game at that point, and then it was released commercially without being changed and regardless it was a successful game and for its time it was an incredible peice of work.

Now even though there were bugs, they could have only gotten worse over time with new hardware coming out and new operating systems the compatability on the game would vary specially when modding it comes into play.

Now finally just because you havent heard anything yet doesnt mean its not happening, when they have repeatedly stated "we are not releasing more news til it is final" means they arent happy with all the "soon" updates so would rather do the right thing for the next one. So please for the love of god monarch please stop whining, I mean from the looks of it your quite clever you could be spending your time actually asking questions, like asking about the bugs or anything like that infact I am pretty sure the devs had a log of bug reports somewhere. but stop putting all these useless negative comments on here they will just be ignored.

Get real, Crill! Face it it's month after month, year after year it was supposed to be released. It's just a mode and no matter how good it should have been released a long long time ago.

Actually they said they will be releasing news ONE MORE TIME, but include some brutal truth as far as information goes (possibly cancellation).

"There are no real problems, just technicalities that have needed to be ironed out" probably legal issues, the law isnt an easy thing you know.

and bjorn has said in the comments that he isnt doing soon updates anymore he will only do another when he has something worth putting an update for.

But maybe there's something we can learn from those comments. As in, maybe ModDB should put up a category for Ungrateful Pricks this year.

Will the commenters from the mod pages of Deus Ex: Revision, Earth's Special Forces or Black Mesa take the cake? Stay tuned.

Maybe, there's something we should have learned about mode makers who contact greedy corporate giants asking if they have a right to use what belongs to them by name and as the analogy goes put their head into the lions mouth as thought wanting to not release it and thus in a manner of speaking committing suicide or maybe they just wanted some of the money from this big greedy company themselves. And of course the sycophants who defend them for what the did and tell everyone else how childish and impatient they are for not wanting to wait for a mod that was promised over a year ago, almost every month and were told long age that it was finished and that in reality it will probably never be release.

"Ungrateful picks" easy for you to say I guess they chose you as a tester? Sounds like you have no reason at all to be upset being spoiled enough to be able to test it- if there is a mod at all. I think given we have seen very little of it this may all be a hoax.

You can't be ungrateful before actually getting the thing to be ungrateful about....

When you disrespect the devs who have been working on the mod for years (and want to see the mod released far more than any of us combined), yes, yes you can be ungrateful about it.

Who's disrespecting the devs? In our opinion, Squenix is disrespecting the devs.

When will the complaining stop? When the mod is released? I doubt that.

What you doubt that the mod will be released, is that what you are saying? Many would agree with this.

But Drewie, at least there's a constant release date for those! And man, do we cherish them.

Hopefully we'll get an update soon, this time though I hope for a clear statement.

Honestly, I wouldn't hold my breath either. It's been 3 weeks since the last time I talked to anyone in the DXREV team and at that point even I thought the release was right 'round the corner. Not that it makes certain posters on this comment page any less annoying, mind you.

Anyway, the wait made start a project of my own to pass some time. Which one will be released first?

Definitely yours. I'm actually going to play Nihilum again because I'm sick of waiting on Revision.
