Thanks so much for mentioning!

No error message I'm assuming? The installer does have them, but they don't always like to show on modern windows and just crashes instead.

Possibly just a corrupted file, it gets finicky even things are even a byte outta place.

Only real suggestion I have to redownload, haven't heard this report from other users so that's my only lead so far.

Unless the manual install is workin' well for you, in which case just do that!

Reason it's there, I personally prefer manual installs anyhow.

Did you select "Editing Extras" by chance?

Just realizing there's an error in my last second rewrite of the manifest to save space, and selecting that option causes a crash.

Will be fixed in the next update, sorry for the trouble!

Is there a way to launch this through Steam?

I'm assuming that if you *overwrite* any and all files with DXCU code, then rename the two relevant EXEs (so Steam launches the new one instead) that will run it every single time? Just a thought...

Absolutely correct! Detailed here: "https://github.com/Defaultplayer001/Deus-Ex-Universe-Community-Update-/blob/master/[1.0] Deus Ex - Windows-Linux-macOS-Android/How to use through Steam (For Proton, playtime tracking, ect).txt"

Hey,
Is there a way to change UI to default?
And thanks for your great work.

The standard menus are still available, when you do get the application running (however you do that is up to you), so: yes! From inside the game! :D

Hello! Apologies if I missed this in the Changelog: I've got the thing working (so I thought) but there's a point during the Training level (don't laugh! I'm rusty! It's the jumping ramp with a small secret underneath) where the app' just crashes out: I walk about halfway, underneath the ramp, and the app judders briefly and just bails. I'm on Windows 10 (21H1) and did have to do a manual install; I've turned on Confix and deleted the Demo folder. I'm gong to try to replicate it now, but is this a thing?

Didn't manage to replicate this, but there are (still) a lot of Infolink-related errors, and no speech heard as a result. Also: in the corridor just before Gunther's section (of the Training Mission) on firearms: the far door won't open, I'm guessing as a result of a lack of Infolink (lots of these errors state "INFOLINK NOT FOUND!" then whichever piece of code is missing). I haven't tried using the Maps that came with Transcended; is this where I'm going wrong?

I fixed it! It transpires the load-order of the "Paths=..." parameters in The INI is wrong by default (the standard / vanilla system files should be in first, then all the DXCU stuff) or I misapplied the "Confix" files: the EXE only puts these into the "DeusExConAudio..." files into thetop-most System directory, which is not the Modded one in *my* setup... Training mission works as intended now!

Hmm this isn't right. The Vanilla file are 100% meant to be loaded last.

With my installers / mods, I always use a recursive path setup and treat the original game as one big static asset that I don't write to at all. Just read.

I'm not sure exactly what happened here, but def a con file related issue. They way you fixed it will mostly work, but will override Confix / Transcended with the vanilla fles.

If anyone encounters this issue with the latest version let me know and I'll try to replicate it ASAP! (After an uninstall or simple folder delete ofc, to prevent any optional files from remaining.)

Would it be fine if i replace DeusEx.u with the one for the lipsync mod. If I replace it, would my game mess up?

This will work fine, just don't select Transcended. (Or well, you can. But pointless and a waste of space since the lip-synch mod would override it.)

I've actually reached out to the creator of that mod about permission / info about replicating their work for the CU and other mods. Unfortunately no response yet.

Very impressed by it!

My windows defender didn't let me run the installer cause says it may put my pc in danger. Is it normal that message appearing?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Yeah that's totally normal, Windows since like 7 doesn't like home grown EXE files.

Which is totally fair tbh, but iirc you gotta like register a security certificate or some crap to get it removed.

OK yeah googled that, it's telemetry based mostly apparently. So screwed there since this is using 7-zip sfx. So it probably just reads as that.

Otherwise apparently paying for a cert might help.

Stackoverflow.com

Who needs that? Youtu.be

Such a hassle.

Can you please update the Transcended version here as it is a bit outdated.
Or rather, how do I update the Transcended version included here to the current and updated standalone version of Transcended?

Go onto the github for this mod and there is a "pre-release" for 2.1, which I'm fairly sure contains the updated Transcended version. Github.com

Does anyone know here now how to disable mouse acceleration with the default Launch executable, i.e. not Kentie? Thanks!

You can try this! "https://github.com/Defaultplayer001/Deus-Ex-Universe-Community-Update-/tree/master/[1.0] Deus Ex - Windows-Linux-macOS-Android/CommunityUpdateFileArchiveDXPC/MarkC Windows 10 + 8.1 + 8 + 7 Mouse Acceleration Fix"

Sorry for the lack of hyperlink, for the life of me can't figure out how to post a working one for a link with spaces on moddb.

If anyone knows any other options, please let me know!

Sorry for the slow responses to comments on this page, assumed I'd get some kinda notification but apparently not or maybe I'm blind.
