Little "time played" trick/fix
Hi guys,

I saw that steam does not track time in DX:IW. The problem is mess with executables - game uses 3 exe's for menu/levels/level transition. I reflected on it and tried an easy trick. Finally, steam tracks my ingame time. If you are interested in tracking time, read this:

1) Go to ..\Steam\SteamApps\common\Deus Ex Invisible War\System\
2) Rename dx2.exe to dx2menu.exe
3) Download and install Quick Batch File Compiler
4) Create batch file with following text:
dx2menu.exe
pause
5) Compile created .bat file to .exe using Quick Batch File Compiler
6) Name it "dx2.exe" and put to \Deus Ex Invisible War\System\ folder
7) Run game from steam
8) After playing press any key in dx2.exe to stop tracking

Hope it will help you.

I don't understand much of all this, sorry. Tracking time? I've recently finished Deus Ex Invisible War and it says I played 33 hours.

Steam doesn't count hours for many users so it's a good fix for them.
