My question is, will Deus Ex run properly under Windows XP? See system in my sig... Thanks
It'll run fine just make sure you install the latest patch.You might also want to do a search for an opengl renderer and truform patch.Try www.planetdeusex.com

Found a copy and ordered it for $15 including shipping.

Once I'm done w/Jedi Academy and Halo I'll start in on this one.

Definitely will make sure and apply the latest patch for it. If I remember correctly this was one title that had a few bugs when it first hit the street.

It had a serious bug called "optimized for glide" and direct3d was a bit slow but the opelgl renderer applied later helped.Try to find a later onengl renderer from the DX community.

Crap. This thing was built up around the first Unreal engine wasn't it (hence the glide optimization)? Damn. That complicates things a tad.

Nobody knows. iD never gave an ETA after they delayed it from 2003 to 2004.
