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.

With great help from the numerous bugtesters who chipped in I've been able to release v1.8 on time, just in time for Valentine's Day. Come, join in the joy!

Well, it's been a long road, but it's finally here.  Shifter v1.8 is ready for consumption by the masses.  More features, more bugfixes, more awesomeness in general.  Pity it took a full year to get it done.  Consider this my Valentine's Day present to all of you, which is funny when you consider that I originally intended v1.8 to be my birthday present to y'all back in July.

 Due to the usual delay in modDB approving submitted files it may be a while before the download shows up on the Shifter main page.  In the meantime though you can grab it from my Savefile Project Folder.
