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!

This mod doesn't seem to work on the STEAM version of Deus Ex because all I get when I ran the exe is failed to find steam.

It works fine with the Steam version.
How are you installing it?
Have you installed the Release#1 first?

Working on a new installer for the beta that includes the Release #1 files.

Thank you for this.

HDTP + TNV = awesome looking, nostalgic feeling game! After my first playthrough(in years) I'll look into adding TNM or Shifter :)

New Vision only existed because of HDTP though, myself and DaveW originally were HDTP texture artists, we learned a lot from HDTP.
