    The site for the Deus Ex high definition texture pack lives here - http://www.offtopicproductions.com/hdtp/

    It's not done yet, but apparently they're still working on it. Fingers crossed.

    P.S.: "JC is dancing in the blood of a murdered child!"

    I love how your pacifism is the opposite of your frustration with the AI.

    As you get more frustrated, the rockets start flying. :)

    I can't tell any difference between this video and the last one, and the text is still unreadable, unfortunately. Can you read the text if you view the source videos with VLC/Winamp/whatever? I know Vimeo can do better than this, so it's probably FRAPS's compression interacting with Vimeo's in weird ways.

    If there's no other way, you could try Stage 6. This is as high quality as it gets, but it requires it's own plugin which doesn't work for some people.

    Also, you should've shot the kid with bullets and taken your chocolate bar back, Grand Theft Auto style.

    Ya it was readable when I looked in Winamp after I was finished with the video. I might try stage6 but it'll be a bit dodgy, these videos are averaging at 40-60 minutes each :/

    I normally mange to get to Lebedev before I start the murder. Hell, I could have done this totally bloodless if I had just followed them onto the train, but that little voice in the back of my head was whispering "They want explosions. You want explosions. Make these guys pay."

    I was giggling so hard when I thought about doing that.

    I must admit, I had fun making this video. The AI glitch and my little rampage at the end, as well as managing to get the alternate dialogue without much trouble were nice.

    The next video will be long, I'm warning you now. I have to do every side-mission in Hell's Kitchen (Including the secret base) as well as taking out the generator. I also have the issue of space. I can get the machine gun in the next section but I currently do not have the space to pick it up. I think I might try going to the end without it, but I might have to sacrifice the GEP gun.

    That actually wasn't a bug. Well, the guy running around in circles was, but the reason they were running away in the first place was that there was a big battle between the NSF and UNATCO while you weren't looking.

    Although the new video is definitely more clear, the newspaper and datacube stuff is still tough to read. I think dropping the rez a rad and keeping Vimeo should do the trick.

    *EDIT*
    Also! You can turn off the transparency of the menus. I bet that'll help a bit, too, since some of the background junk is making the text a big blobby.

    I never knew the "install the second mod" trick. Still, good to know. Also, while they both have their uses in very limited areas of the game, (since only a douchenozzle puts anything in swimming, Aqualung does have some use in the sub base), I would suggest dropping Aqualung/Environmental Resistance for something. Maybe get both Artificial Heart and Power Recirculator.

    I've also never heard of the "install the second mod" trick, but I do know that you needn't worry about enough space for picking up the assault rifle in hell's kitchen. For Unlimited inventory space go to your inventory and pick up and move the GEP gun to somewhere outside of the inventory area, then press Esc to go back to the game. Then just pick up the assault rifle and look in your inventory, it will be underneath your GEP gun. To select it just move or drop the GEP.

    I've got to send my appreciation for this LP, Italax. Deus Ex is my favorite game of all time, but I haven't had the time to go through it for a long time now. It's nice to see it done a semi violent way, too, as I've always taken the non-lethal stealthy route.

    But yeah, keep it up! You're doing a great job.

    Edit: Oh yeah, and regarding Jaime...I didn't see anyone mention this in the thread...the pronunciation in the game is the spanish pronunciation. Generally it's pronounced "hay-may" for males, and "jay-mee" for females.

    This is probably a weird request, but could you possibly say Jaime the way you'd naturally pronounce it in the next video? You mentioned that that's not at all how you'd say it, but you didn't say how you would say it. Just curious.

    *EDIT*

    Oh, I see this has kinda been mentioned. I figured I was the only one that cared.

    I knew all about the battle, I avoided it at the start in case things wigged out and it made me miss the alternate dialogue. What was weird was how they all hid for a while and let me hunt them down. I'm just glad they didn't trigger the guys in the subway, that would have been a huge annoyance.

    Your wish is my command ;o

    Let's Play Deus Ex - Bonus 1: Rocket Castration and Not-so-Friendly Fire

    I think I need to go 1 resolution lower. This still seemed a little hard to read. EDIT: This is as low as I'm willing to go. Anything lower makes it unplayable for me. It's kinda legible at this setting anyway. I tested it in winamp though and it worked perfectly. If you want the text downloading might be the best option, sorry guys :/

    (Sorry about forgetting your name lol, I was rushing and didn't expect anything interesting to happen. That guy is in for it later on.)

    I said Wednesday. But I love you guys and finished recording this weeks videos yesterday. Now, you need to know that this was not supposed to take 3 parts, I was supposed to do all of Hell's Kitchen in one go. It didn;t turn out that way and I underestimated how long showing everything would take, so it's two videos. This Video will show most of the side quests and the next video will be me finishing off the mission. I'd be perfectly willing to record the next one and post both of the ones I have now, but I've maxed out my vimeo upload and can't show it anyway. So, enjoy:

    Mission 2 - Part 2: If this is Hell's Kitchen then I'm the goddamn chef.

    I don't know if you noticed, but there's a fire extinguisher behind the receptionist in the free health clinic... if you did things in a different order you could try out the fire exinguisher trick in a bonus video.

    EDIT: Thinking about it and the thing where Jock demands one of Shea's "ice cold brown bullets," I doubt it would work. Maybe if you got a warm beer and did it?

    Also, "Who will help the widow's son?" is, according to Google, a Freemason distress signal.

    I really hope I can blow through the airfield in one update, the airfield sucks ass. It's one redeeming feature is the end. I love the end.

    Also, is it possible to port my saves from the game into the game on Steam? I downloaded the pack with Deus Ex and Invisible War and I wanna see if I can use that to do the let's play on the Steam version.

    I don't see why not. Steam gives you all the original game files; as long as your copy is patched all the way I can't see any problem with it. Just find the matching folders and move the save files from one to the other.

    By the way, you didn't link the third Mission 2 video, but it's up on Vimeo -- http://www.vimeo.com/610233

    I just finished watching it. Next time on Let's Play Deus Ex, Italax unleashes his fury at ladders on a hardware store with Geppy.

    Ah, now it makes sense. I thought earlier you meant that you couldn't upload this last one yet... but you meant you can't upload the next one.

    It does kind of make me sad that I won't have anything else to watch this week, but... oh well. That's the price of devouring things too fast.

    I dont even remember what the other leg AUG is.

    Anyway, I've never had the game think I was a crazy killer if I knocked everyone out. The only part where it doesn't distinguish is if you knock a person out, you can then blow them up with a rocket and it'll still think they're just knocked out (I believe).

    Other leg aug lets you walk making less noise. It's ok but stealth gets really hard later on.
    Run silent sounds nice until it occurs to you that the super speed aug still works when you're crouched. What's worse is that run silent only dampens movement sounds, so the super speed is actually better for stealth. Even Aqua-Lung is a better choice than that.

    Max rank Run Silent is full speed running, completely silent.

    Max rank Speed Enhancement lets you crouch and move just as fast as you do while running (if not faster) and you're also completely silent. And you can stand up and ZOOM.
