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.

  1. In-game, press ~.
  2. Enter preferences.
  3. A window called Advanced Options will appear.
  4. Go to Rendering > Direct3D9 support
  5. Change the value of MaxAnisotropy to the desired value.
  6. Close the window to apply changes.

Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

The game uses MSAA and defaults to a value of 8x. This value can be modified.
Change AA value[5]
  1. In-game, press ~.
  2. Enter preferences.
  3. A window called Advanced Options will appear.
  4. Go to Rendering > Direct3D9 support
  5. Change the value of NumAASamples to the desired value.
  6. Close the window to apply changes.

Frame rate (FPS)[edit]

The game defaults to an uncapped FPS. If needed, a FPS cap can be applied.
Change FPS value[5]
  1. In-game, press ~.
  2. Enter preferences.
  3. A window called Advanced Options will appear.
  4. Go to Rendering > Direct3D9 support
  5. Change the value of FrameRateLimit to the desired value.
  6. Close the window to apply changes.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/397550/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (397550) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
