Deus Ex: Human Revolution - hot-fix update.

Version 1.2.633.0 released by Eidos Montreal, on 22 Sep, 2011.

Changelog for this hot-fix patch:

  • A specific issue that caused performance degradation for some DirectX 9 players in the 1.2.630 patch has been fixed.
    • We are still evaluating further measures to counter stuttering and plan to have a further update for this in another patch.
  • Crashes when examining quest items have been fixed.
  • Some issues related to switching between fullscreen and windowed mode have been fixed.
  • Additional fixes have been made for the TYM medical card. The current fix should also allow users that already have the problem in their savegame to pick up the card again.
  • ‘Russian’ text language option now shows up correctly regardless of current text language.
  • An issue that may cause the game to have stability issues on certain RAID setups may have been addressed. Even with this patch, if you have a RAID setup, please ensure you have the latest drivers for your controller.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - update.

Version 1.2.630.0 released by Eidos Montreal, on 19 Sep, 2011.

Changelog for this patch:


  • We have addressed various issues that can occur for players that would result in ‘stuttering’.
    • Stutters that are the result of graphics driver shader processing are now removed or significantly reduced.
    • Stutters that are the result of data streaming have been removed or significantly reduced.
    • Performance has been improved and made more stable on dual-core systems. This could previously also result in stuttering.
  • Fixed issue where some players couldn’t complete the Motherly Ties side quest.
  • Fixed an issue where doors in Omega Ranch sometimes wouldn’t open.
  • The TYM medical card should no longer fall through the table if an NPC’s body comes into contact with the card. Players already stuck in this area will need to revert to a previous save before the card fell through.
  • Occasional hangs for some players during video-playback have been fixed.
  • A crash on startup when running DirectX 11 on a single-core CPU has been fixed.
  • An issue causing Eyefinity setups to not be correctly detected for some players has been fixed.
  • Fixed an issue where the HUD would get permanently disabled for some players.
  • Fixed certain issues that caused the mouse cursor to be able to leave the game-screen on multi-monitor setups.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the mouse cursor to not be visible in-game when the user has mouse trails enabled in Windows. We still recommend disabling mouse trails for a smoother in-game mouse cursor.
  • Fixed issue where ammo count for collected guns is incorrect when Adam's weapon is augmented.
  • In DirectX 9 mode:
    • Fixed error message for some users when trying to use FXAA Medium or FXAA Low anti aliasing modes.
    • Fixed shadow-mapping ‘lines’ on some graphics hardware when using anisotropic filtering.

Feature Additions:

  • The Enter and Numpad-Enter keys can now be bound to game actions in the keyboard control menu.
  • Intro logos can now be skipped on all but the first run of the game.
  • Added windowed mode.
    • Selectable in the menu, and can be toggled between windowed, fullscreen, and fullscreen windowed using ALT-ENTER.
  • Added an option to change the text language of the game. This setting only changes the text language, the audio is controlled by the language option in Steam.

HowTo / Notes

Test Submissions ... how to avoid a rejection notice!!

These notes were last updated: 28 November 2017

Follow these guidelines to avoid embarrassment when your Test Submission is immediately rejected!!

  • Put your PC specifications in the Extra Comments section e.g. like your CPU and system memory.1
  • When adding test results please specify video card and driver version you are using.2
  • It's also useful to mention what Desktop Environment you are using (e.g. KDE/Plasma, Gnome, Xfce, Budgie, Mate, Cinnamon, ...)
  • Specify if you installed the Deus Ex: Human Revolution into a fresh Wineprefix (or not).
  • Specify what version of the Windows compatibility you use for your Wineprefix (e.g. Windows XP, Windows 7). Specify if you override this for the Deus Ex: Human Revolution executable.
  • Specify whether you installed into a 32-bit or a 64-bit Wineprefix.
  • Add detailed comments about what is not working for you.
  • Please indicate if your using Wine Staging and/or any additional patches applied - to the version of Wine you are using.
  • Please, don't submit test results like "Everything is working" or "Everything isn't working".

These guidelines ensure your submitted test results are actually relevant to other users of Wine and WineHQ.

1 The console version of the lshw utility is your friend. This command will dump your System hardware specification in a clean format. Post command and output in the Extra Comments section:

sudo lshw -short | egrep -v '(volume|disk|bus)'

2 glxinfo can be used to display your OpenGL and graphics driver versions. Post the command and output in the Extra Comments section:

glxinfo | egrep '^[[:alpha:]]'

Known Issues

DirectX 11 Support

As of Wine version 1.7.53(+) there are tests enabled to see if your graphics hardware supports DirectX 11... Unfortunately a significant amount of the DirectX 11 translation layer has still to be implemented in Wine.

On supported hardware, Deus Ex: Human Revolution will start in DirectX 11 mode. The menus may display correctly. In game there will be a lot of graphical corruption and missing textures.

The workaround is to disable support for the DirectX Graphics Infrastructure (DXGI) in Wine:

wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\dxhr.exe\DllOverrides" "/v" "dxgi" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "" /f

Graphical Corruption

Wine, by default, does DirectX draw calls in a different order from Deus Ex: Human Revolution running under Windows.

The workaround is to enable strict draw ordering (via a registry key):

wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\dxhr.exe\Direct3D" "/v" "StrictDrawOrdering" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "enabled" /f

In addition the AlwaysOffscreen registry setting is enabled by default (since wine version: 1.5.10). It is important that this registry setting should be left enabled.

Mouse Escapes Window (Wine Virtual Desktop mode)

The symptom of this problem is that when Deus Ex: Human Revolution is run in a Wine Virtual Desktop the mouse can escape from the fullscreen game window.

The workaround is to enable the grab mouse in full screen mode setting (via a registry key):

wine reg.exe ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver" "/v" "GrabFullscreen" "/t" "REG_SZ" "/d" "Y" /f

This is a workaround introduced by Wine Bug 6971 - Mouse "escapes" window or is confined to an area in the full screen program.

Incorrect DPI Scaling of Elements

The symptom of this issue is that all UI popup elements, the in-game HUD, etc. are scaled to an inappropriately small size. This appears to manifest on a single-head X session with multiple monitors, combined into a single X display.

The only known workaround is to use a Wine Virtual Desktop. The issue is to be investigated further as no Wine bugs appear to be filed against it.

In-game stuttering and generally low FPS

Enabling StrictDrawOrdering leads to a high price in game performance. It is recommended, certainly for Nvidia GPU users (using the proprietary driver), to use the Wine Staging CMST patchset available in the Wine Staging package. AMD GPU users who are using Gallium Nine may not require or benefit from this patchset.

This unstable feature can be enabled in the Staging tab of the winecfg utility. Regressions (crashes, graphical artifacts, etc.) should be reported at the WineHQ Bugzilla - stating that the Wine Staging patchset was used.

Report requirements

When you do a report; in additional comments, please put in your graphics card and driver version! reports without this will be rejected (or if a very good report, I'll ask for details and update your test, just pm me details after I ask)

Also, please remember that appdb is for vanilla wine, at this point the game requires a patch. Feel free to put in what rating the game would get with the patch in additional comments but set the official one to garbage (which is accurate). Game is Silver rating to me, unofficially.
