Built largely for first-time players, Deus Ex: Transcended is a mod focused solely around faithfulness to the original, while bringing an unmatched arsenal of bug fixes, paired with key notes of Quality of Life changes.

For most all purposes, it'll play identical to the original, without any substantial changes to balance and no changes to assets, be they map, model, or sound. Virtually all changes outside of pure bug fixing are entirely configurable, allowing for the user to stay even closer the original in every possible way, should they choose it.

Recommend combination with for Confix conversation based fixes.

Does Transcended affect using cheats? In vanilla, I'm able to use cheats, but in Transcended, the "Set DeusEx.JCDentonMale bCheatsEnabled True" text doesn't work.

The text is really small. Playing on a 1920x1080 screen. Is there a fix for this?

Does this work in other languages?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Is there a way to just get the menu option for higher resolutions? I just want that little bit of cleanliness

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Hi, the mod is excelent. But I have one issue, the mouse sensitivity in the inventory and menú screen is too high. It feels like when you play an older Game at low res with full screen. I'm playing at 1080 .When playing borderless fullscreen this problem dissapears but i cant change the brightness then. I Hope you can help me if it's a bug. If not, i would like It to be fixed in the Next update, the high sens makes it unconfortable to use the inventory screen.

Hey Hawkbird. I think one of Deus Ex's biggest problems nowadays is playing it above its default FOV, and having the viewmodels unnaturally extend and cut off. I think a fix for this would be of great benefit as the only known fix is a big pain to go through. Would this be possible for future updates?
Having DirectX 9 and/or 10 available would also be of great benefit as in my experience, they're easily the best around, although I imagine you'd have to get permission for those. Compatibility with Kentie's Launcher would also be a great touch, and help to make this the definitive Deus Ex package for a vanilla yet playable and compatible experience. Lastly, launching with Steam and GOG would be ideal.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I tried this mod with the Kentie launcher/mod manager it works great. You can change the DX version to your liking. I like the Kentie launcher for that but also changing the scaling to 2X so the GUI isn't tiny in higher resolutions. Just replace the original Deus Ex.exe file with the Kentie launcher exe and then Data Directories to set what mod you want to run.
