@tha_rami I think that's the concern - letting a TV/monitor scale could produce that effect - 480p output is not really a thing anymore tho

@tha_rami if you scale using the equiv of bilinear/trilinear filtering as opposed to point filtering, you can get a blurry image

@MachXGames @ID_Xbox Yep. Such a 180 from the open days of XNA

@pbhogan Looks like Xbox One controller maps same as 360. Joystick name on Win 8.1: "Controller (XBOX One For Windows)"

@fatboxsoftware There's only 18 of us who care, but do you have a rough estimate on the low poly airplane pack? No rush, just curious.

Check out Dialoguer T.co Interesting looking node-based dialogue system for Unity. Free for the next few days!

@CSR_Studios The main scene added in the dir cut ultimately hurts the suspense and pacing, but is worth checking out once if you're a fan

I have updated Zodiac to load appropriate high-quality meshes from HDTP Release 2, and added high-resolution UI and some Zodiac-specific bugfixes. See Moddb.com


Changes I've made:

Bugs fixed:
- no more huge light bulb showing instead of blue glowing sphere in MJ12 mainframe and Egypt reactor

Loading high-def meshes from HDTP for the Zodiac-specific object analogues:
- Paul Denton
- grays and their carcasses
- personal computer
- phone

The following Zodiac belt and inventory icons were freshly re-rerendered in 24-bit and high resolution:
- C4
- Joshua rifle
- Energy Clip ammo

High-quality upscaling of:
- remaining belt & inventory icons (Zap soda, biomatter sample)
- data vault images
- computer logos
- InfoLink portraits

That's because when you change the directory, it still retains DeusEx at the end of the file path. This makes it assume that Deus Ex is installed in the newly made directory, while it isn't. This mod, and some others require that they directly be installed into the Deus Ex directory. Like if you have Deus Ex in C:\Games\Deus Ex, that's what should be the installation path for the mod as well. Normally, changing directories makes it say things like C:\Games\Deus Ex\DeusEx, so you need to edit it manually.

Great mod, but it needs to be updated with Shifter and more augmentation cannisters IMO, I love the Page Biotech part and the music of the Egypt part.

Truly excellent mod and a love letter to the original Deus Ex. Features detailed locations that use creative layout in addition to sheer size in a manner that reminds me of the best Thief TDP and Thief 2 maps. No voice acting, which is totally fine for a fan-made mod; bad voice acting will ruin a mod faster than no voice at all. Even allows multiple endings, with the forking / branching between endings conveniently located. Excellent original music as well. Is there any chance of a separate OST release?

Two slight negatives. First is the divergence from the canonical Deus Ex plot. You play Paul Denton just after Tong has disabled his and JC's killswitches. While JC continues his quest, Paul investigates an MJ-12 archive stashed at the CIA HQ in Langley, VA, USA. Clues from the recovered material lead Paul on his own quest to uncover a conspiracy as ancient as the Great Pyramid of Giza. Toward the end, Paul's adventures seem to break away almost completely from the vanilla Deus Ex plot. Perhaps Zodiac should have discarded canon completely and instead went with an original plot and characters. Second is the lack of subtitles during the intro and endings. Or maybe subtitles are enabled but not displaying for me?

Overall: 9.5/10. Would be 10/10 if it hadn't tried to insert itself into the Deus Ex storyline in such a shaky, confusing manner.

I realize this is a massively late reply, but the soundtrack is available for free at Steve Foxon's website:

I totally agree that the story elements of ZODIAC could have been handled better as a stand-alone story; my thought process at the time was to re-use as many of the art assets as possible, but in retrospect I didn't really need original characters from DX.

Fun fact: if you've played Deus Ex: Human Revolution, you may have noticed signs for Foxon Audio. Those *are* a reference to Steve Foxon, who did the music for ZODIAC and some other mods. He knows one of the writers (who has apparently played ZODIAC!).
