Project HDTP is a High Definition Texture Package for the original Deus Ex game. The original in-game textures were of a very low resolution, some textures even being as low as 32x32. However, it was discovered that it is possible to increase the resolution of those textures to a maximum of 256. This has been tested in-game and we have witnessed the start of a massive graphical overhaul.


1. All new remodelled and retextured Objects.

2. Objects will sport a high resolution of 256.

3. Brand new character models and matching high resolution skins.

4. Character models are more individual. For example each guard/trooper type will now have its own model instead of using the generic one.

5. Character models now have their own fingers (removing the 'mittens' effect).

6. Models that require animation will be full animated from scratch to compliment the higher quality feel.

7. Characters look darker and more moody to enhance the game play experience.

8. Vehicle models and weapons will be remodelled, skinned and reanimated.

Been awhile since I personally posted a news article so here it goes.

For those of you who do not keep up with the forums, our new modeler/texture artist _Alex_ has been banging out our character models. Almost at an impossible pace for me to comprehend.

Here they are:

Any comments or suggestions, post them on our forums. Of course you can also comment on here, but not everyone comes here.

This is my last news post until the new year, so have a safe and fun Christmas/December!

Hi folks,

Can I first say thank you to all the team for this excellent mod. I've enjoyed playing this game over the years and to see it getting a facelift is exciting.

However, I have a little problem. After installing HDTP, New Vision & Shifter 1.9 I cannot load my save game (Can't find Class in file 'Class DeusEx.AmmoCombatKnife').

A quick Google showed links at Offtopicproductions but I do not seem to be able to view the pages there.

All I get is the error message "Your PHP installation appears to be missing the MySQL extension which is required by WordPress."

Could anyone enlighten me?

Oh bugger,
Not to worry though as it was only a replay of the first mission, for the first time without killing anybody.

Thank you for letting me know.

Are you using a relatively modern renderer (eg. donhal's dx9 or opengl, kentie's dx10)? If so, the following line needs to appear in your renderer settings:

The only thing I don't like are the new reload animations for the pistol and sniper rifle. You can't use reload mods on those weapons as it's always the same fixed animation that plays for those weapons which doesn't decrease the reload time.
Also both animations are as fast as the highest reload mod upgrade in vanilla which really changes the gameplay.
Is there any way to use the new models with the old animations?

FWIW, I did an installer with the beta packages (HDTP Release #2 Beta). I uploaded it to moddb but I couldn't get it to link over here for some reason. Here's that, if you aren't already aware that it exists:

This just looks amazing!

Is there any ETA on this? :3 I just can't bring myself to try out the Beta!

Check out the Beta. You'll never go back. ;)
Seriously, the mod is pretty much close to completion in the beta, bar a few bugs (MJ12 troopers).

I am confused as to how I install. On Beta 3 it says about download all the packages, what packages? Does it mean the other beta files or the 2006 Release 1?

You need to download all of the beta files (beta 1, beta 2, beta 3) Then extract them into your Deus Ex folder, there are still some bugs with the MJ12 trooper (mentioned above) that will crash the game,so start up the game and you should have a new HDTP menu. Enter this and then disable the MJ12 trooper model.

Also, Anna Navarre's model does not open her mouth when she speaks ( minor bug ) so it is your choice whether you disable her new model or not.
