This guide is for an older version of GMDX (version 8). Follow the guide in the link for the latest (final) version of GMDX: Gmdxmod.com
|||Getting Deus Ex mod-ready|||
1. Install Deus Ex.
2. Launch Deus Ex up to the main menu. At the main menu look for the text "v1.112fm". If "v1.112fm" is NOT displayed and some other version number is then apply the Official patch v1.112fm.
1. Download GMDX v8.0
2. Launch GMDXv8_Setup.exe and follow the necessary steps to install the mod.
Install to the Deus Ex directory (C:\DeusEx for example). The installer will also automatically install HDTP & New Vision, although New Vision can be disabled/uninstalled later should you desire. HDTP however is a requirement. Once installed you must launch GMDX from either the desktop start menu or alternatively from the shortcut if you opted for it.
If the .exe won't launch:
Make sure your antivirus isn't blocking the exe
Try running as admin
For the "Failed to find Steam" error: Gaming.stackexchange.com
All else fails consider using Kentie's Launcher
"Help! The in-game text is not updated, for example Swimming is not changed to Athletics"
If so, read this: Ttlg.com
"I get a black screen whilst playing. I can still move , the game still seems to be running, but all is black"
Alt+Tab out then go fullscreen again, or alternatively quicksave then quickload.
Medium difficulty is recommended for the vast majority of first time players of GMDX.
Regarding other mods, GMDX is compatible with HDTP and New Vision ONLY.
You have to start a new game to begin GMDX without conflict.
Don't set FOV too high (90 is recommended, but at most don't go over 100) otherwise HDTP culling is visible on some weapons.
As indication GMDX is installed properly the main menu will display "GMDXv8.0".
GMDX can be played with ANY official version of Deus Ex providing it is patched to v1112fm (Game of the Year version has this patch by default)

Look in DeusEx\GMDX\System and you'll find two configuration files: gmdx.ini & gmdxuser.ini. In these files you can configure aspects of DeusEx\GMDX if you so choose.
Note: The DX10 renderer has some issues such as flickering textures on occasion. If this is a problem use the DX9 or OpenGL render instead.
