The Arena mod was originally released in 2002. This mod adds bots to the multiplayer. Bots acts like players and they also can use several augmentations. The mod also includes some singleplayer content. It replaces several weapons, modifies augmentations, adds equipment shops and makes similar small but useful changes and ships with 5 multiplayer maps. After the first release the mod was abandoned and the best features migrated to Hardcore DX. So basically Arena is just a kind of alpha preview of the first versions or the Hardcore DX mod, but it’s quite stable, playable and funny and includes several features that were not included to Hardcore DX. Since the development of Arena mod was abandoned years ago we can't provide any updates, bug fixes or support for this mod. This version is identical with the version released in 2002, but features an easier way of installation and a slightly updated documentation.

Some modeling is required. Fixed maps Added experimental ragdoll Fixed some bugs

Posted by on

We need some 3D models, since couple of models has been broken, and some models are missing. No animation required, only models. To be exact, i just need skeleton, attached to model.

Here is list of required models that should be recreated/fixed:

  1. New Thermoopcic camo model (invalid texture coordinates).
  2. New 30.06 ammo model (invalid texture coordinates, left from the original game).
  3. NPC models with simple skeleton, for RagDoll.

Now I can say that project is finished to... let's say.. 60%. Most of DeusEx-specific features has been recreated and implemented, most of problems (С++ coding for UT2004, too big MaxStepHeight) has been solved.

What is left to do:

  • Recreate some additional functions for AI.
  • Finish with AI (and thus get Playable game).
  • Fix remaining maps.
  • Find and fix bugs.

If you want to help, here is link to my Discord:
I have all required models and examples if needed.


Keep up the great work and hope there's help for you! I can't imagine the patience you must have to keep this going! A wise man once told me "Deus Ex is a beautifully crafted mess" :D
