Additional Comments

This version of Deus Ex with the current version of wine as of this writing, 1.7.11, does not run for more than a few minutes. It will mostly crash at startup. I made it to the setup screen a few times, but trying to change things caused it to crash. Alas, I cannot get the game to actually start. I tried known working Wine prefixes, and even a clean Wine prefix. FWIW, the older CD non-Steam version works just fine on this version of wine, so I suspect it is this version of Deus Ex that is at fault, not Wine.

HowTo / Notes

Install Deus Ex: Revision


Deus Ex: Revision is a large-scale re-imagining of the world of Deus Ex, bringing a tightly integrated aesthetic-oriented approach to the original gameplay. Revision brings in Project HDTP and New Vision for high-detail models and textures. Also bundled in Chris Dohnal’s Direct3D 9 renderer. Revision also includes the Shifter and BioMod modifications as alternate gameplay modes; Shifter adds various tweaks and unique weapons, spicing up the experience. BioMod offers a more distinct flavor, and introduces new gameplay mechanics while rebalancing how augmentations work within the game.

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}"

How to get Deus Ex Steam GOTY working
by Zootal on Thursday February 6th 2014, 11:57
Go here:

kentie.net/article/dxguide/index.htm

This works *VERY WELL* with the Steam GOTY version of Deus Ex. It has the added benefit of not starting Steam. Very stable, highly configurable. I cannot over state how happy I am with this, and it is a blast being able to play through this classic on modern hardware.

Be careful if you choose to use any cheats - sometimes it will break your ability to swap weapons, and when you save it will break the save game. Save and save often just in case you have to revert back to an older save game.

By way of clarification - using the "fixer" I referenced does not break the save games. IF you use the fixer AND IF you use cheats AND IF it causes weapon swapping to stop working (this is rare, by the way) THEN your save game will be broken. Otherwise, save games work fine.
