Mod Of The Year 2013 Editors Choice - Best Singleplayer Mod



- DOWNLOAD | SOUNDTRACK | SOUNDTRACK 2 -

Please install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 runtimes before installing the mod itself!



Initial Story
In 2049, unsavory conditions are rampant throughout the world. As soon as it becomes clear that a terrorist attack in Shenzhen, China, was carried out by perpetrators with ties to international groups and that Hong Kong may be their next target - the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) dispatches their first nano-augmented agent, Mad Ingram, into the city to prevent the situation from escalating any further.


DXN - Deus Ex: Nihilum is a First Person Shooter mod set in an alternate Deus Ex continuity. It features made-from-scratch original content while also extensively featuring material from the UNATCO Born mod (used with permission from fender2k1, UB's project leader) and Deus Ex: Revision (2011 build - used in accordance with the mod's license).


* Over 21,000 downloads by May 28th 2022
* The main campaign features a new musical score by RetroXor with 80+ tracks (over 2 hours of music). The Training and Epilogue DLCs feature music by Denis [KaMiKaZe] Melnik, Logan Felber and Elektronalin in addition to five new tracks from RetroXor.
* 2,500+ lines of dialogue (roughly four hours of audio)
* 8-15 hours of gameplay (includes DLC - estimates based on testers' playthrough times)
* Two new weapons: Paratrooper Rifle and XVA Assault Gun (w/ EMP ammo) in addition to a new Glock variant
- Exploration is essential! Treat the levels as mazes and prepare for back-tracking!
- Save often and use several savegame slots! This will hopefully save you a lot of time when it comes to handling certain odd issues.
- Encrypted datacubes: Remember, once you've hacked an encrypted datacube, you have to click on it again to make the datacube information window disappear.
- General rule on hacking: Keep in mind that you do not need this skill to advance the main plot itself. However, its general usefulness cannot be underestimated!

Have a problem with fonts on dx10-dx11. All letters looks like "rounded" or something, when i use discrete videocard on my laptop (with mounted graphics all is fine, except fps). Can anyone give a advice about it?

You need to have HDTP installed before this one or include the directory lines "Paths=..\HDTP\System\*.u" and "Paths=..\HDTP\Textures\*.utx" in fgrhk.ini (below the fgrhk directories). For textures "The hi-res UI icons are located in \Deus Ex\Textures\DeusExUI"

No idea, I'm afraid. I installed HDTP (and New Vision) first in my latest DX installation before DXN itself, and the models appear fine there.

I guess you could make sure that you don't have conflicting fgrhk.ini files (if the INI file used by fgrhk.exe is in C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\Deus Ex\fgrhk\System for example).

And just in case it might help, here are the Paths from my fgrhk.ini:

OggPath=..\fgrhk\Music\
Paths=..\fgrhk\Maps\*.dx
Paths=..\fgrhk\Sounds\*.uax
Paths=..\fgrhk\System\*.u
Paths=..\fgrhk\Textures\*.utx
Paths=..\NewVision\Textures\*.utx
Paths=..\HDTP\System\*.u
Paths=..\HDTP\Textures\*.utx
Paths=..\Music\*.umx
Paths=..\Sounds\*.uax
Paths=..\Textures\*.utx
Paths=..\Maps\*.dx
Paths=..\System\*.u

Which version of New Vision and HDTP you install?

The latest ones from ModDB:

For troubleshooting purposes, try adding -localdata to the command line of your DXN shortcut - namely if you've edited the fgrhk.ini file in your [Deus Ex Directory]\fgrhk\System folder (f.ex. C:\DeusEx\fgrhk\System\fgrhk.ini)

Its strange because the HDTP icons in inventory works fine, but the models for weapons dont work. I put the directory lines as you said.

So the custom Hud Icons for the weapons stayed after uninstalling and deleting a bunch of other things. I mostly ignored it for a while but now I want the old icons back. Which file are these stored in?

The hi-res UI icons are located in \Deus Ex\Textures\DeusExUI
