So now, we finally have Deus Ex ready to go!
Go ahead and launch it (either through Steam or just double-click DeusEx.exe in the Deus Ex\System folder) and you'll see the following menu.
You will see this new window every time you launch Deus Ex from now on. Click Configure.
This new configuration menu will allow you to get the most out of Deus Ex.
Here is a run down of what all the settings are:GUIDefault GUI:
This setting will allow the in-game user interface (and menus) to stretch and enlarge themselves with the game's resolution allowing for much easier viewing on very high monitor resolutions
1920x1080 exampleNon-scaling GUI:
This setting will keep the user interface (and menus) at their original sizes. This is good for low to mid resolutions like 640x480 or even 1280x720 but beyond that, you're going to struggle to read on-screen text.
1920x1080 exampleInputDisable mouse acceleration (use DirectInput):
Most people will not want to alter this setting. It works fine as is.AudioLatency:
Also best left alone. If you have audio problems or crackling, try changing the value to other recommended numbersUse DirectSound
Best left enabled and untouchedEngineFPS Limit - 100:
Change this to 60 for the best experience. Values have no effect on game's running speed anymore so there's no more running around like Sonic the Hedgehog.Video OptionsRenderer:
You can change this to anything you want. I highly recommend either 'Direct3D 10 Support' or 'OpenGL Support', there's almost nothing to seperate them from each other in terms of speed and graphical capabilities.Resolution:
Changes what resolution the game will run at. Any value changed here will alter, and take presidence over, any setting in the Field of View
section of the menu automatically. You can also specify a custom resolution if you want below and play in Fullscreen or in a Window (Alt+Tab also works but it will default to a 640x480 window if you do)Quality:
Go for 32 bit colour. There is virtually no difference between 16 bit colour and 32 bit colour that I can see. Leave Detail Textures checked.Field of View:
Not really a FOV section but more of a Widescreen section. Any value here tends to be overwritten by any setting in the Resolution
section of the menu. Any value here is best left alone as, if you have picked a resolution, the launcher will have selected the best Widescreen selection for you when you chose your resolution.
