Turn Deus Ex: HR Into More of a PC Game

Illustration for article titled Turn emDeus Ex: HR/em Into More of a PC Game

I played Deus Ex on PC. It was...OK, but didn't run as nicely as I thought it would, and didn't give me as much control over things as I would have liked. Know what it was missing? A debug mode. Know what we've got now?


A debug mode! How'd you guess?

A mod has been released for the game that gives the PC gamer access to all kinds of tweaks for the title, from the important (like skipping those unskippable intro splash screens) to the enjoyable (cheats like infinite energy) to the cosmetic (turning off the HUD).


You can even pick a level to skip straight to from the main menu of the game. All of which is perfect for my impending second playthrough, where I'm going to use double takedowns on every single character in the game until I'm Adam Jensen, the last half-man-half-elbow-knives on Earth.

I know it sounds weird, but sometimes as I played this it felt like a port from consoles.

Not ALL the time. Just certain times. Did anyone experience, for instance, the weird cursor inaccuracy in the game? Sooo many times I put my mouse over the 'hack' button and instead it triggered nuke or worm. And the inventory system feels sooo much like consoles. Dragging those items to the quickbar is a chore.
