Deus Ex is one of the best PC games in history, but even it isn't without its faults and shortcomings. Shifter addresses these and then some. Unused game content, buggy scripted events, several completely useless items, and certain design choices that can only be described as "annoying", all fixed (or at least "improved") by this little mod. I started Shifter in 2002 to fix just one of the latter -- the fact that weapons equipped with a laser sight won't turn it on automatically -- and the project has expanded exponentially since then. A few new weapons, some additional uses for existing items, new augmentations, and several fixes for existing Deus Ex bugs all exist in Shifter, along with a new multiplayer component. The mod is so popular it's been featured in Game Informer's July 2007 edition of Mod World; how many Deus Ex mods can say that? (only 3, to be specific) Shifter: "Removing the suck from Deus Ex" since 2002.

Description

Another release candidate for v1.9. This version removes some demo-detection code which was causing issues for some users when trying to start a new game, and also localizes the "you discarded a combat knife" message, so that it can be translated by a localization file. This atop the existing improvements for compatibility with the new HDTP Beta, as well as the new "lootable containers" feature.

Now if only Biomod was updated to take this update into account. Sadly until then I can't use this :(.

In the NYC Sewers, whenever I go on top of the dam, jc denton stops responding to any and all keyboard/mouse input.

This surely must be a glitch with this mod...

IF you are using HDTP With the MAjestic 12 models set to on,and you come in contact with a seated MJ 12 trooper,he might even be just out of your sight,this can happen...see aforementioned bug in this pages description of the mod..It's a probably a problem with the MJ12 trooper.
Are you sure it isn't The HDTP mod,Go to settings,HDTP Settings,Set Majestic 12 models to off and try the same area,Let me know,,
I havent installed this version yet,so I don't know if the HDTP settings Sub Menu is built into the mod where applicable
I don't know how to code animations onto models,but maybe someone who does can copy paste the seated UNAtco trooper animations over the seated MJ12 animations,It might work to fix the model on an otherwise excellent mod,.

There is no Shifter.exe. This only replaces your DeusEx.u file. You run the game as normal.

Please improve the precision rifle a bit, I can't decide whether to swap it for my heavilly modified sniper rifle or not. Mine has way higher damage, 10 rounds in a clip, silencer and a laser sight. I'm not sure if I'll even be able to gather that many upgrades till the end of the game, from the beginning of Paris...

im not sure if this is still relevant to you at all yuki but when using this version of shifter i get extreme drops in my frames per second any time im in or near a combat zone. not sure if this sounds like anything you can easily diagnose but i felt i should give you some feedback on it. otherwise i love the new features, particularly the lootable trashcans.
