Additional Comments

Some times dropping FPS when much in game action, like almost every other games under wine on my low-end PC. Lubuntu 14.04 2x Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 @ 2.00 GHz 1025 MB Ram Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT - 340.96 proprietary driver Wine 1.9.19 Fix multiplayer description: http://www.deusexnetwork.com/masterserver File needed for multiplayer: http://www.deusexnetwork.com/files/DX1/multiplayer/patches/2493/DeusEx_Masterserver.zip JUST INSTALL ONE FILE FROM LINK ABOVE and you can search servers in multiplayer mode. GOG version is same as GOTY 1.112fm. Just different looks installer. I have also CD with Deus Ex GOTY 1.112fm from gaming newspaper and works same as GOG version. THATS SAME.

HowTo / Notes

Using the Stock OpenGL Renderer

Out-of-the box the stock OpenGL renderer will generate a segmentation fault:

double free or corruption (!prev)

This BASH script will fix the DeusEx.ini file settings to correct this. Note it is recommended to use the newer OpenGL renderer (which is significantly better)

  1. Create this script (credit to Morgawr, his original script was used as a basis for this):
  2. #!/bin/bash


    #export WINEPREFIX="❚❚❚❚❚❚"

    export DEUS_EX_PATH

    # Read install path for Deus Ex, from the Wine Registry.
    # Note: this requires a first run, when DeusEx is installed under Steam.

    DEUS_EX_PATH="$(
         wine reg query 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\Deus Ex' /v Folder 2>/dev/null \
            | awk '{ if (sub("^[[:blank:]]*Folder[[:blank:]]*REG_SZ[[:blank:]]*","")) print $0 }' \
            | dos2unix
    )"

    # Fallback to 'C:\DeusEx'

    DEUS_EX_PATH="${DEUS_EX_PATH:-C:\\DeusEx}"

    printf "Using DeusEx (Windows) install path: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}"

    # Convert path from Windows to Unix format

    DEUS_EX_PATH="$(winepath -u "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" 2>/dev/null)"

    if [[ ! -d "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" ]]; then
         printf "DeusEx install path: '%s' ; does not exist\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" >&2
         exit 1
    fi

    # Patch settings to make the game work properly on OpenGL devices
    # Uses the default DeusEx install path (for the current WINEPREFIX)
    if ! sed -i -e '/FrameRateLimit=60/d' \
                  -e 's/^GameRenderDevice=.*$/GameRenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice/g' \
                  -e '/^GameRenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice$/a\FrameRateLimit=60' \
                  -e 's/FirstRun=.*$/FirstRun=1100/g' \
             "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/DeusEx.ini"
    then
         printf "Unable to update DeusEx.ini file: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/DeusEx.ini" >&2
    exit 1
    fi

    printf "Successfully updated DeusEx.ini file: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/DeusEx.ini"

  3. Make the script executable & run it:
    chmod +x fix_deus_ex_opengl.sh
    ./fix_deus_ex_opengl.sh
    (ensure your WINEPREFIX env variable is set)
Install Kentie Launcher

The Kentie Launcher Deus Exe is a replacement executable for Deus Ex. It's compatible with the GOTY edition of the game, which includes the Steam version. Note: the enhanced Steam version of DeusEx appears to lose support for the high resolution/wide screen fixes, when the Kentie Launcher is installed.

The launcher:

  • fixes various issues running the game on modern computers
  • helps you configure the game
  • includes a mod manager

Kentie Launcher homepage

This script will download version 8.1 of the Kentie Launcher and automatically install it, to the specified WINEPREFIX.

Update the KENTIE_VERSION variable as required.

#!/bin/bash

export WINEPREFIX="❚❚❚❚❚❚"


export DEUS_EX_PATH PATH_7ZIP KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE KENTIE_LAUNCHER_URL KENTIE_VERSION

KENTIE_VERSION="8.1"
KENTIE_LAUNCHER_URL="http://kentie.net/article/dxguide/files/DeusExe-v${KENTIE_VERSION}.zip"
KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE="$(basename "${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_URL}")"

# Install winetricks verbs: vcrun2015 7zip

if ! winetricks vcrun2015 7zip; then
     printf "winetricks vcrun2015 7zip failed\\n" >&2
     exit 1
fi

# Read install path for Deus Ex, from the Wine Registry.
# Note: this requires a first run, when DeusEx is installed under Steam.

DEUS_EX_PATH="$(
     wine reg query 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\Deus Ex' /v Folder 2>/dev/null \
         | awk '{ if (sub("^[[:blank:]]*Folder[[:blank:]]*REG_SZ[[:blank:]]*","")) print $0 }' \
         | dos2unix
)"

# Fallback to 'C:\DeusEx'

DEUS_EX_PATH="${DEUS_EX_PATH:-C:\\DeusEx}"

printf "Using DeusEx (Windows) install path: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}"

# Convert path from Windows to Unix format

DEUS_EX_PATH="$(winepath -u "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" 2>/dev/null)"

if [[ ! -d "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" ]]; then
     printf "DeusEx install path: '%s' ; does not exist\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}" >&2
     exit 1
fi

# Download Kentie Launcher
if ! wget "${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_URL}" -O "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE}"; then
     printf "Kentie Deus Ex Launcher unavailable @: '%s'\\n" "${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_URL}" >&2
     exit 1
fi

# Hack to determine path of 7-zip (32-bit or 64-bit)

PATH_7ZIP='C:\Program Files (x86)\7-Zip\7z.exe'

if ! wine "${PATH_7ZIP}" &>/dev/null; then
     PATH_7ZIP='C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe'
fi

if ! cd "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System"; then
     printf "cd to path: '%s' ; failed\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System" >&2
     exit 1
fi

# Extract Kentie Launcher archive (case-insensitive)
if ! wine "${PATH_7ZIP}" e -y """$(winepath -w "${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE}" )"""; then
     printf "Unable to extract Kentie Deus Ex Launcher: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE}" >&2
     exit 1
fi

printf "Successfully extracted Kentie Deus Ex Launcher: '%s'\\n" "${DEUS_EX_PATH}/System/${KENTIE_LAUNCHER_ARCHIVE}"

Locale issue
by GreatEmerald on Saturday January 11th 2014, 3:16
The game needs to have LANG=C set, if you are using a non-standard locale, in order not to crash on startup.
