Awesome! Can't wait to play this game (queued for a while)! Do you use any mods perhaps?
Yeah I installed the GMDX mod on top of the GOG version, as I saw so many people recommend it on the Deus Ex subforum, calling it the best and definite Deus Ex mod that still is faithful to the original (apparently meaning that doesn't really change the game, besides fixing bugs and improving the graphics somewhat; so not like that Redux mod for Fallout Tactics that replaced many weapons and some other items, replaced companions, changed the difficulty levels to harder etc.).
However, it was some earlier GOG version on top of which I installed GMDX. It seems nowadays there's some other mod (Revision?) included with the GOG version, so I am unsure if GMDX can just as easily be installed on top of the Revision version of the game?
The main reason I looked for a mod was that the vanilla GOG Deus Ex (which I downloaded several months ago) didn't run correctly on my PC, severe graphics errors already in menus, making the game unplayable. So I needed to use some mod, and went with GMDX instead of Revision. I guess that is why nowadays GOG is also including that Revision mod, so that the game works ok on modern computers out of the box.
I first had some "problems" with the GMDX mod, mainly that all the text and user-interface icons were far too small if I changed the resolution to 1280x720 or higher within the game, and also some default colors in the user interface made some text even harder to read, like tiny dark red text on grey background.
- There are options within the game to change the user-interface colors, so I did that, which already made the text more readable (but still too tiny).
- Then I noticed that if I changed the game resolution from the GMDX launcher, and not within the game options while the game is running, then the text would be scaled well to higher resolutions, and there is even an option within the GMDX launcher to zoom the user interface and text if you want them even bigger (but that was not necessary for me).
So I was earlier ready to play the game in 800x600 or even 640x480 resolution just in order to read the text easily, but after finding that one out, I am now happily running it in 1920x1080 resolution, with everything crisp and clear and text quite readable, even the logs with smaller text.
Yeah my eyes are not as sharp as before. I've always had a bit of "vision" even when I was young (ie. I can see sharp far away, but reading small text near not as much) but I've done without glasses up until now. Now I'd really need to invest on reading glasses at last, I guess. Or maybe a monocle, that should raise interest among others!
