Essential improvements[edit]

Run without Steam[edit]

The Revision mod officially requires the Steam version of Deus Ex.[1] However, it is possible to play Deus Ex Revision with a non-Steam version of the original game, by adding parameters in the executable target:
Create a link of the executable[2]
  • Run <path-to-game>\System\deusex.exe with the command line arguments -localdata -INI=Revision.ini -USERINI=RevisionUser.ini
  • If you encounter an issue with the above arguments, replace it with -localdata -INI=RevisionDefault.ini -USERINI=RevisionDefUser.ini

Windowed[edit]

This fix makes the game start in windowed mode rather than fullscreen, so tools like Borderless Gaming can work properly.
Set windowed mode[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\System\
  2. Edit Revision.ini.
  3. Find the section [WinDrvLite.WindowsClientLite]
  4. Change StartupFullscreen=True to StartupFullscreen=False
  5. Save and close the file

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

The game defaults to 16x anisotropic filtering. This value can be modified.

  4. Go to Rendering > Direct3D9 support
