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.

Forget Caustic. We should all be writing to Square Enix now, letting them know this mod is so popular that their constipation is making SE look bad.

I love you Caustic, don't let the comments section get you down. Sometimes reading through here it feels like I was reading YouTube comments, or 4Chan... Keep working like you do and remember there are those of us who wait patiently.

yeah, waiting is more fun for use than actually playing the mod.

Let's just talk about being patient and wait forever for nothing.

I'm just wondering if we can have a few screenshots while waiting,particularly of the first few levels...Some of Liberty Island, Battery park,New York Streets...
Shouldn't be a deal breaker to release around 6 new screenies,it would keep the whiners hosed down for a while anyway.
What I'd also love to see is a comment from one of the creators divulging as much information as legal ground with Square allowed..regarding projected release,and extent of new features and what has been happening with the team in the wait for Square to get on the ball..
This mod is going to be great.
I know it will.

Perhaps they have changed something that requires legal approval from the owner of the intellectual property? I mean yes we are allowed to mod deus ex. But there can still be restrictions on that specially when it comes to a large scale mod with a lot of custom content within. Give the guys a break. They are making sure this is going g as successful as possible. And we can all enjoy the finished product. Will be a good fortnight for me :D

I'm more impressed that DXREV is apparently the first mod ever to have changes take place during its development.

They should have a new MOTY category for that, you know. Foist in da weld!

Not true not, true at all. Just about every mod has had changes during its development.

By the way who are you a tester for them? A marketer?
Just wondering as I patiently wait.

We won't delay it - It's finished - We're not releasing it yet

There are no problems - There are technicalities - Everything is pretty much OK -

We are talking to some people - To make some stuff happen

I think they're trolling us, but unaware of it? Lol.
