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.

Yes folks, it is upon us. Shifter v1.7 is just about done. Right now I'm in the testing stages, specifically HDTP implementation testing. I wouldn't want any of y'all to load up v1.7 with HDTP installed only to find it doesn't work. (Or worse, load it up WITHOUT HDTP installed and find out it crashes you) Right now I've got a few folks testing it out for me. Once I'm reasonably sure I've got all the bugs worked out (or at least the big ones) then I'll take out the debug stuff I'm using for testing, (so your logfiles don't fill up while you're playing) finalize it and upload it here.

If you would like to chip in and help test, I suggest you wander over to the HDTP forums and find the thread I have posted there. And pick up HDTP Release #1 while you're at it, if you don't have it already, because I gotta say, it's pretty awesome.
