Deus Ex Hardware Tweak Guide

by Kevin Barton of PlanetHardware (August 19, 2000)

With the popularity of our previous tweak guides, where we covered Quake3: Arena, Unreal Tournament, and Half-Life/Counter-Strike, we've decided to go ahead and do one for one of the more popular single player games at the moment - Deus Ex. Featuring stellar graphics and amazing gameplay, many are playing this game for hours on end.

The goal with this tweak guide is to make that playing experience a bit more enjoyable by leveraging your system to get its optimal performance when running Deus Ex. To that end, we'll be covering all of the various visual, audio, and system level tweaks that should help to increase the visual quality or performance of Deus Ex.

One of the key concepts in tweaking Deus Ex is that the game utilizes the Unreal Tournament engine. Because of this, many of the tweaks we have listed here were also listed in our UT Tweak Guide posted a few weeks back. There are, however, several tweaks that are crucial to getting both improved image quality and performance in Deus Ex. Before we dive into the in-game tweaks, let's cover some of the basic system-level tweaks that can help improve not only your Deus Ex performance, but your general machine performance as well.
