We're into December. This is a shorter update than usual, simply because we just don't have that much area to cover. First up:

Development targets

We're aiming to wrap up production, and ideally, launch sometime within the next ten weeks. As before, this is a loose estimate based on current progress and team member availability, and until environment design is finished, it will remain difficult for us to commit to a fixed launch date. In other words, we won't know when we will release until we're nearly ready to do so. This is simply part of making a non-commercial project with a widely distributed team; as much as we would love to, we can't guarantee a steady development pace.

This leads into the next bit...

What we have for you right now

Currently, the environment being redesigned is Area 51 Sector 2- the entrance area to the underground bunker that houses staff barracks and recreation. We've got a few screenshots of that to share:

We've also got another tune from the Revision soundtrack: Enemy Within Conversation.

A few general comments

We know that development on this project can be frustratingly slow at times, so thank you for bearing with us. We're closer than ever to completing this project, and we always appreciate your support. We'll follow this up with the Revision Goodie Bag on Dec. 24th as a sort of christmas present to the community.

Stay tuned.

I saw some YouTube videos of this mod and one thing I became concerned about was the actual gameplay. It seems like it was made easier than the original game. Some places that needed a GEP gun or an explosive to open, can now be opened with a crowbar or knife. I also saw higher item availability. I really hope they balanced it all out. I would have to play the game on Realistic and not be challenged.

Screenshots look magnificent. This game was meant to play on either plasma HDTV with very high contrast ratio or on LCD monitor/HDTV, also with high contrast ratio. Dark scenes would look incredibly deep and immersive, much more so than the original game.

It would be real funny if Revision developers were contacted to work with original Deus Ex developers to make Deus Ex - Remastered HD edition, running on Deus Ex HR engine!

Hmm.. are you talking about the channel that has a complete playthrough of the early demo? There's about 40 videos or so. If yes, then good news for you. Revision isn't as bright as the videos show. I think gamma is highly increased on those videos. Also shifter is being used(makes the game a lot easier in my opinion) + some cheats enabled if I recall correctly. Not to mention that the levels are very outdated in that playthrough. There's plenty of challenge when you go realistic. :)

I also noticed on some screenshots that blacks seem to be clipped/crushed. I hope I am wrong and I hope developers of this mod are using calibrated displays (Rec.709/sRGB standard, BT.1886 gamma curve or at least power law 2.22 gamma curve) when designing Revision graphics and art. I would even be willing to send Revision developers my colorimeter to make sure the game looks right!

I check progress every day now!

It's actually a quirk of the modern renderers- screenshots taken appear darker than they do in-game, so we artificially brighten them before posting to make them reflect the actual visuals very closely. We'ed like to not have to do that, but re-working the renderers is outside the scope of our project.

I upvoted it, but it was too late at that point. :\

And speaking of things that are "up", I definitely have a boner for DXREV. Hoo-haw!
