7 comments by Jerion on Apr 2nd, 2015

A lot has happened since December and we have exciting news. We have two new additions to our team, a new programmer and a new 3D artist.

Our new programmer Hanfling joined us late last year to fix bugs in native Deus Ex code. However, this has evolved into the creation of a full featured Deus Ex content creation framework called the Revision Framework. Its roadmap includes support for features found in all current game engines such as terrain, static meshes, deferred lighting and fancy materials to push Deus Ex: Revision visuals to a whole new level.

Cyrus -- the other new guy -- will pitch in to make use of these features, and create tons of static meshes, while adding content that Project HDTP didn’t cover. Right now he is working on:

Gunther and Anna

To make full use of the scheduled engine features we need to remake or at least update most of the content already created. However the whole team is excited to make use of the new features and make Deus Ex: Revision the best Deus Ex incarnation of all time.

Edit: As you many have realized, this was an April Fool's post; we won't delay Revision for any new features.However most of the post is correct, Hanfling is working with us to make the Revision Framework and the long term goals are to include the mentioned features, but that would be years into the future. Currently it's mostly a WIP framework for mods to easily and properly integrate into the game without having to replace DeusEx.u. It will also improve the editing workflow with a new set of tools. It will not be used in the 1.0 release and we'll only lift a few features from it, such as a fix for incorrect footstep sounds and UI scaling.

We also do have a new 3D artist named Cyrus that joined us a few weeks ago, and he is currently working on replacing some vanilla models, however certainly nothing as indicated by the picture above.
We are very close to release right now and beta testers will be contacted shortly. More info soon to come :)

Hi!

Will there be GNU/Linux and OS X support? Yeah, silly question but worth to ask. :-)

Thanks.

Not out-of-the-box, and we can't guarantee any sort of smooth performance through WINE on OS X. Not yet, at least. We'll look into it after 1.0 launches though- so down the road, maybe.

A quick update: We've got an OS X version working through a Wineskin wrapper. It's a bit rough and a little bit quirky, but we can say that an OS X version is feasible. It's something that we'll look into more later on.

Well, if you use WINE and OpenGL it should be fine, but since it hasn't been tested we have no idea.

Deus ex works with WINE, so yes.

How's the installer going? I see it isn't mentioned in the launchpad page, so I doubt you're having problems with it.

Installer done. I just discovered a bsp yesterday in the first Liberty Island map, other then that everything else is fine. It will hopefully go out to testers later today.

FYI, the launchpad page is only really for external matters and I won't use it to report internal bugs I just discover. It's more for players/testers to report stuff then for me doing internal stuff.
