I ended up uninstalling the whole Deus Ex, trying to remove the remnants of GMDX (because there was no separate uninstallation option for GMDX 9.0.2), reinstalled Deus Ex Goty, and reinstalled the newer GMDX 9.0.3.
The problem is still there, it crashes when I go through the doors to the lower decks, after it apparently tries to autosave the game. The odd thing is that I have autosave disabled in the GMDX options, so why is it still trying to save?
The in-game "delete savegame" button doesn't seem to work correctly. If I delete a save game with it, at first it is removed from the list but if I check it in the filesystem, no save game file/directory has been removed (from Documents\Deus Ex\GMDX\Save). When I run GMDX again, the "deleted" save files are still listed and can be even loaded, BUT the delete button is disabled on them.
I'll try to remove some of the old save games manually with File Explorer, but there the problem is that it is hard to tell which save game file/folder is which in the in-game save game list. The save subfolders are not named after how you name your save games, there are no human readable files in those save folders which would reveal it either, and even if I tried to map them by sorting the saves by date both in-game and in the Windows file system, even they don't seem to fully match (I tried to delete the autosave files that way, but I ended up deleting something completely different).
Damn this is hard. Googling didn't reveal anything more. So a couple of questions:
1. Is there supposed to be an uninstallation option for GMDX? Googling for it, I got an impression there should be (after all, you install GMDX with an installer). I don't see any uninstall link either in the Start Menu nor in the Control Panel Programs.
2. What is the "Current" save game folder? Is it just the latest save, or some quicksave?
EDIT: I tried to find a specific "GMDX forum" or such, but I found only one GMDX 9.0 thread in some forum. The thread seemed dead though, one message in December and another from January, and when I tried to create an account to that board, I never received a confimation link mail from them like i was supposed to.
