Hello all!

Welcome to our July update.

Over the last two months, we've been steadily working away without too much to talk about. People have come and gone from vacations, and development continues. We've been getting a fair amount of feedback from our playtesters, and are working to solve the bugs and issues that they have reported. We've also been getting feedback on the soundtrack, and while the response has been broadly positive, there have been some valid concerns about a few specific tracks, and we have been addressing those as well.

For those of you who are interested, we've moved to an online bug-tracking service; if you'd like to take a look at the issues we're working to solve and get a sense of what we're doing behind the scenes, check it out here: It is updated regularly and shows the issues we are encountering and fixing, as we encounter and fix them.

In recent weeks we've also been running a pair of articles on the Eidos Montréal community blog. These two articles serve as a general introduction to Revision, and go into some depth on the process of creating the new soundtrack. We have a third article planned, so keep an eye out for it in the coming weeks. Our thanks go out to Sacha R. and John T. at Eidos Montréal for being kind enough to make this happen.

The Creation of Revision

The Music of Revision

We have a couple more things to share with you this month:

First, a look at our Area 51 overhaul, which (on the surface, at least) takes a few cues from Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Panchaea location.

Area 51 Surface

Second, we have our Battery Park exploration music:

That about covers everything for the moment. Enjoy!

Will this be compatible with the GMDX mod?

No. Revision and GMDX both modify the maps and DeusEx.u where all the code changes are. We are striving on not becoming dependent on our own DeusEx.u files, but as we add features it's hard to avoid making changes to the core files. Using other then our own DeusEx.u files for the final release has not been tested.

In short, something might work but you won't get the full Revision or GMDX experience but rather some blended mess.

GMDX uses it's own gameplay tweaks and level configurations, which is mutually exclusive with Revision. You could try to combine them, but it would probably break several aspects of each mod.

Not really. One can still mess with the files abit and get Revision and GDMX working but then some features from both mods are lost. It would truly be a complete masterpiece though... splendid level design, a new soundtrack and realistic game-play features.

(I still plan on playing them together... depending on what exact features are lost)

Revision will be so good that it will make us hate the original.

Saw something strange at the mods' website/Development Progress, where are chapters seven and thirteen?

Also wanted to say cheers for the mod, it's gonna be epic :)

The chapters are named after the mission numbering in the game files. :) Those files skip mission numbers 7 and 13- presumably due to some content being cut fairly late in production.

This mod deserves to be much higher on the popularity list (it's ranked 176). Deus Ex is one of the best PC games of all time and if this mod is done correctly it could very well become a must have for any future Deus Ex playthrough.
