MOTY Top 100

News 2 comments

Hello all,


ModDB’s Mod of the Year 2015 competition is into its second round, and the ModDB community has put Revision into the top 100! That’s fantastic. It says that the audience feels Revision is good work, and we appreciate that. If you want to vote for Revision in the second round, we think that would be nifty.


Mod of the Year gives the community as a whole the ability to push forward well-made mods and recognize when a project has achieved something distinctive. We’re big fans of the idea that good work should be recognized, promoted, and shown off to the world, and MOTY is a great way of doing that. A well-made mod doesn’t have to mean something huge, ambitious, or unexpected. It just has to have a sense of craftsmanship to it. Massive or minuscule, any well-made piece of work for any game is a showcase for what the modding community can deliver when talented people get together and make something cool.

So go vote for good work!

Disgusting that these mod devs have become Square Enix's whores. Releasing a steam only version is a slap in the face for the rest of us!
For people like me, here is a link to fix this stupid **** the devs pulled: http://www.gog.com/forum/deus_ex_series/fix_to_get_deus_ex_revision_mod_working_on_original_disc_and_gog_goty_without_steam

Trying to force us to buy the steam version won't stop intelligent people from figuring out a work around.

**** you Square Enix (& **** you konami)!

Blah blah blah...

The authors have right to decide the way the mod will be released. I own the GOG version and I had NO F*CKING PROBLEM buying it on Steam too. Not going to mention that the original content is still owned by SE and they can dictate the way of release of the DX remake!

Now hear the wise words of Master Yoda: I68.tinypic.com

You do realize that from a legal standpoint Revision is just a Deus Ex mod and making mods for Deus Ex is legal? If they never approached SE nothing bad would have happened.

You wasted your money re-buying it. Complacency towards negative consumerism will lead us all towards a dystopia! You may all hate me for wishing that this mod was developed for more than just [] enix in mind but haters gonna hate. When the dystopia comes and you are all playing pachinko machines, I'll be there wagging my finger saying I told you so

Reminder hour:

"Ultimately neither the Revision team nor Square Enix owes you anything - you bought a game 15 years ago, and you can still play it, that's the extent of the "contract". A bunch of guys decided to put a shitload of work into something, and then they decided they'd release it on Steam and nowhere else - their prerogative." ( Offtopicproductions.com )

Courtesy of Jonas Waever, one of the creators of the (still) most prominent Deus Ex mod ever: The Nameless Mod ( Moddb.com ), summing up the situation in the best way.

Now, who will be butthurt enough to give his mod a 1/10 rating in retaliation? A question for the ages. :]

I really like TNM, more than any other DX mod, and I usually like DX mods. But IMO it's more like:
"a bunch of guys decided to put a shitload of work into something, they wanted to reach the largest audience and so to release it on Steam with the support of Square Enix, and Square Enix told them: 'ok, but you'll have to make it Steam-only (so people will have to buy DX on Steam even if they own the CD)'. So the guys made it officially Steam-only while knowing it was easy to bypass the Steam restriction".

If that's not what happened, I'm still waiting for someone to explain me why CC didn't release an official version of Revision ready for people who own other versions of DX, which would have been the best for everyone - except SE.

Yeah, the team has to explain it to YOU, presonally, because you have paid for 7 years of their work.

I suggest to catch the members of CC and burn them at the stake, so they will confess their sins commited against all the true DX fans and signing the pact with devils from The Square Of Enix!

Silmacunt, do you ever stop being an annoying fanboy? Do you ever actually discuss things with people who don't share your opinion? Do you ever argue? Are you even trying to say something? Do you even -think-? The answer to all these questions is no.

Am I the only one worried about the steam-exclusivity? Look at those **** ratings up there: the answer is no. Did I even say that CC did something wrong??? No. Am I trying to destroy the mod in any way? No.

You're nothing but an annoyance, really.

The answer is here: Offtopicproductions.com

Hell, even I tried to sweet-talk Eidos into making DXN a Steam exclusive mod 2+ years after it was released (purely out of spite) but since DXREV is professional work and DXN is NOTHING ( Translate.google.com ), it ain't gonna happen. A shame.

In any case, I'm glad that Jonas has hit the big bucks with Expedition: Conquistador and Clandestine and I've been told that Caustic Creative have their own plans for new projects as well. Best of luck to the best Deus Ex editors ever. :]

So they only got the Steam release because they had someone in touch with SE, not because the mod was good. In any case I bet none at SE cares for this mod beyond using it for a publicity stunt and making some small money off it.

I uderstand Steam-release = increased visibility. But the important word here is Steam <ONLY>. I still don't see an answer about why the exclusivity except for a condition fixed by SE...

Well, I've already said my word on the issue. I've known about the Steam Exclusive DLC situation since April 2014, and I already thought it was a good thing for the devs back then.

The greatest farce of it all is that in the age when Steam sales are so ubiquitous that most people seem to own most games (and never play them), it is one free mod for a game that's usually cheaper than gas that causes quite notable outrage since it suddenly turns out that people don't have it there.

Maybe you should check why there's an outrage instead of blindly defending the decision.

First, paying for a copy just to play a mod is unethical because it gives SE money they don't deserve.

Second, it's bad for the modders because it'll make people reluctant to play the mod. Just because the game can be got for cheap doesn't mean paying for the mod is worth it, many indie games are sold for less than a dollar on Steam and they're not worth even that. Not everyone is a compulsive spender you know.

Third, and most important, since people paid money for a mod, it's going to come under greater scrunity because what was merely an investment of time and bandwidth is now an investment of money, which will make them demand more from it.

I understand that there are workarounds, but this doesn't change the above.

In my view, "you need the Steam version of Deus Ex to play Deus Ex: Revision" would only be a valid point if it were true. Yes, there are unofficial workarounds but CC made a deal with SE so they cannot officially advise you to use them because they're not in a position to do that. Demanding that from them is just gamer entitlement.

However, feeling miffed about the Steam exlusivity is perfectly valid as well. But when you go around giving the mod 1/10 scores because you're SHOCKED and OUTRAGED or you feel like your basic human rights have been violated since CC apparently owes you something (which they never have), you're nothing but a child. This kind of behaviour would come as no surprise in the CS, CoD, Halo and Madden communities (to name a few), but I honestly expected a lot more from the Deus Ex community.

And I actually had a proper reason to expect more of them, the releases of DXN, 2027, TNM and to go way back in time, ZODIAC, went far far better. I guess it's the popularity factor.

But all of these points (not to mention valid counter-points) have been brought up before to no avail, so I'm inclined to agree with CC that this ModDB page should be nuked.

In any case, Caustic Creative, Jonas Waever and I are in accordance on this issue and it's a shame things ended up this way.

That said, I'm bummed that Eidos didn't pick up on my "let's make DXN a Steam exclusive DLC" suggestion, I still feel like I should strike back at this situation somehow. Something extremely spiteful...

I do not advocate the bad behaviour that's been on this page, I was merely stating possible reasons people are upset about it. If you check Caustic Creative's Twitter, you would know that Square Enix forced them to make it a Steam exclusive so Jonas isn't quite right about it being their prerogative.

Let's go back to talking about the mod eh? How good is it? How much money is it worth? What exactly is good about this mod?

The mod is great in what it is: an augmentation of DX. I'm still in the last chapter (area 51), I was disappointed with the first chapters, not as good as expected, but then maps like Paris and Ocean Lab are really very good.
I mostly judge on the map design, but for the graphics, they are better than those of New Vision. All in all, the mod deserves much more than the current 6.3 here. It's one of the very best DX mods, maybe just behind TNM.

It is a sad day when a form of DRM gets put on the mod. Unfortunately this mod excludes non-steam versions (hardisk & GOG), that is a huge number of players alienated from being able to play this mod.

If Square Enix forced these guys into releasing this for steam only and this was the only way to give the non-steam players the 'chance' to play it, then I am sorry for my comment and would applogise for it. Otherwise it stands to reason that I would be miffed at seeing a DRM esque mod.

"I'll guess we'll just pull the installer from out site and moddb then. "

Think long and hard on that before you decide to go down that path. Because there's no return once you do. CC is a fledgling enterprise and there's probably some important people watching, waiting to see how you handle yourself in this affair. In this business a single recommendation from a person with influence can change fortunes, literally overnight. All it takes is one phone call.

You're smart. I'm sure you'll figure something out.

No, of course I won't. I'm just very annoyed and extremely tired. Like we enjoy screwing with people and we so this Steam only thing cause we are jerks. No, Square Enix requested that we should be steam exclusive so that's what we are doing. There is a reason for the files being hosted here but with the DRM.

Now that you clearly say SE were the ones requesting the exclusivity part of the deal, I fully understand and agree with what you guys did.
Understanding is the first step before agreeing...

The past six months have proven that the majority of the current audience for Deus Ex: Revision are incapable of understanding the situation. Sadly, it's the audience that a 2-bit ham sandwich theatre like DXN deserves, not DXREV.

But when you take all the proper, critical and profound feedback that DXREV has received into account, the mod is an outstanding success. And remember that Jonas and I stand by you. :]

They probably put a site and moddb version because they knew people are "intelligent" enough to figure out a work around. If they did want to "lock" Revision they would't provide these versions.

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…
