I just recently finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution and have owned the original Deus Ex for a while now (steam sale purchase). I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for playing the original on modern systems. I know there are HD mods out there, but I didn't know which to go for. Any input would be helpful.
I used this article as a starting point.
- Kentie.net has a nice launcher that allows you to customize quite a bit. It also has a few other renderers. I'm using Direct3D 10. Note that some renders speed up the game audio in a weird way. If this happens use the console to limit fps to 100 or so, that's what worked for me.
-Next install New Vision and HDTP mods. They are pretty nice and the character models are a nice improvement.
-The kentie.net Launcher also allows for maintaining (turning on and off) your mods through "Data Directories" button.
-Finally make sure to go in game into Settings-HDTP options to turn what you need on.
Disclaimer: I'm new to installing mods (if pcgamer article wasn't a good enough sign of that). Anyone else that has more pointers go for it!
