Essential improvements

Patches

The v1.2 Patch updates North American retail versions to the latest version. Digital distribution and European retail versions already have this patch.

Visible Upgrade: Unofficial patch for Deus Ex 2

Requires v1.2 Patch to be installed for North American retail version.
Fixes many issues encountered on modern systems.
Additional tweaks available such as FoV adjustment, HUD options, custom aspect ratios and other display tweaks.
Full version includes John P's Deus Ex Unified Texture Pack as option during installation. VisibleTweaker.exe offers a way to toggle on/off certain parts of the mod.

Dgvoodoo2 to force game to use GPU

Works best with Visible Upgrade.
Fixes game not detected/using GPU to run the game.
Fixes various performance related issues.

Skip intro videos

Use Visible Upgrade: Unofficial patch for Deus Ex 2 and set No Intro Movies via VisibleTweaker.exe in Tweaks section[citation needed]

Improve textures

John P's Deus Ex Unified Texture Pack improves textures and models for most of the game's assets and is a compilation of a variety of mods into a single installer.
The GOG.com version of Invisible War is treated as the UK version. The Unified Texture Pack's installer will need to be set to UK to work.

Deus Ex: Invisible War ESRGAN Texture Pack

ESRGAN Texture Pack - AI upscaled textures & cinematics for Deus Ex: Invisible War. Requires Visible Upgrade: Unofficial patch for Deus Ex 2 to play.

Not only all the textures upscaled, but also modified MatLib (material library) file included to add or restore normal maps for all the materials lacking them.

ESRGAN Pack competes with John P's Deus Ex Unified Texture Pack so choose one. It retains more upscaled vanilla look to the game but contains valuable MatLib upgrade which improve visual a lot by adding a lot of normal maps.

Deus Ex 2 High Res Fonts by djdarko

Improves the game's fonts.
Requires the Visible Upgrade.

Large Address Aware

Improves stability when using texture mods by allowing the application to use more than 2GB RAM. This can help prevent crashes. If using the Visible Upgrade, apply LAA to <path-to-game>\System\DeusEx2.exe and <path-to-game>\System\DeusEx2Launcher.exe, otherwise apply it to <path-to-game>\System\DX2.exe.

Ambient occlusion (AO)

If using dgVoodoo2, trying to add AO using Reshade may not work properly because the game constantly resizes the depth buffer when moving the camera. This can be fixed by either forcing HBAO+ through the Nvidia Profile Inspector if you're using an Nvidia graphics card, or modifying a setting to prevent depth buffer scaling.
Set up Reshade and game config values
  1. Make sure you have set up dgVoodoo2 already, as explained here.
  2. Open one of the below files:
    • If using the Visible Upgrade with Unified Texture Pack, open %PROGRAMDATA%\Deus Ex 2 Visible Upgrade\Installed Mods\Unified Texture Pack\System\Default.ini
    • Otherwise, open <path-to-game>\System\Default.ini
  3. Whichever file you opened, find the lines for StaticVPScale and DynVPScale. Set both values to 100, then save the file. To prevent the game from overwriting the file, also set the file to read-only. This prevents the game from resizing the depth buffer.[2]
  4. In-game, open the Reshade UI, and click the "Edit global preprocessor definitions" button.
  5. Check that the value RESHADE_DEPTH_MULTIPLIER exists and is set to 2. If it's not set properly, update the value. If the value doesn't exist, you can add it by clicking the "+" button in the popup. Once you enter the value and click out of the popup, Reshade will register the depth buffer correctly.
  6. You can now use MXAO (or any other depth buffer based shader).

OR

Set up HBAO+
  1. If using dgVoodoo2:
    1. Make sure you have set up dgVoodoo2 already, as explained here.
    2. In the dgVoodoo2 Control Panel (dgVoodooCpl.exe), under the General tab, change the game's Output API setting to Direct3D 11 (feature level 11.0). Press the OK button to apply the settings and close the control panel.
  2. Open one of the below files:
    • If using the Visible Upgrade with Unified Texture Pack, open %PROGRAMDATA%\Deus Ex 2 Visible Upgrade\Installed Mods\Unified Texture Pack\System\Default.ini
    • Otherwise, open <path-to-game>\System\Default.ini
  3. Whichever file you opened, find the lines for StaticVPScale and DynVPScale. Set both values to 100, then save the file. To prevent the game from overwriting the file, also set the file to read-only. This prevents the game from resizing the depth buffer.[2]
  4. Download the Nvidia Profile Inspector and open it.
  5. Select the profile for the game.
    • If not using the Visible Upgrade, then select the profile for Deus Ex: Invisible War in the dropdown.
    • If you are using the Visible Upgrade, and you've previously added the Visible Upgrade's DeusEx2.exe in the Nvidia Control Panel, there should be a profile listed as the path to that DeusEx2.exe. If so, select that profile.
    • If using the Visible Upgrade, and you haven't added it to the Nvidia Control Panel previously, create a new profile and add DeusEx2.exe to it.
  6. Under 1 - Compatibility, find Ambient Occlusion compatibility. If using dgVoodoo2, set this value to 0x00060000. Otherwise, you can set it to 0x00000003[2].
  7. Under 5 - Common, set Ambient Occlusion setting to High quality.
  8. Under 5 - Common, set Ambient Occlusion usage to Enabled.
  9. Hit the Apply changes button and close the Inspector.
  10. When you launch the game, it should run with HBAO+ enabled.

Controller support

This fix makes Xinput controllers fully navigatable in menus. The game itself has out of the box controller support for (presumably) the original Xbox controllers, however it isn't fully compatible with Xinput controllers. This fix mostly fixes that.
Set up Xinput Plus
  1. Download Xinput Plus.
  2. Open XinputPlus.exe.
  3. Go to the DirectInput tab and check enable directinput.
  4. Assign Right Stick to Z axis/z Rot.
  5. Assign DPAD to POV.
  6. Assign LT/RT to Button 11/Button12.
  7. Select <path-to-game>/system/DX2.exe as Target Program and hit apply.
  8. Go to Documents/Deus ex invisible war and Open user.ini.
  9. Change Joy8=NoneEnter to joy8=MenuF22.
  10. Set your write file permission to deny for all users for user.ini.

Issues fixed

Temporary switch to desktop or black screen when loading

Invisible War temporarily shows the desktop or a black screen prior to the loading screen. The game still works despite this.
Use Visible Upgrade[4]

Low FPS / Game not using GPU

Fix for Windows 8 or later[citation needed]
  1. Makes sure you have installed the Visible Upgrade patch.
  2. Download dgVoodoo2.
  3. Extract D3D8.dll from the Archive into the game's executable directory. (%Archive%/MS/x86/)
  4. Extract dgVoodooCpl.exe into the game's directory as well.
  5. Run dgVoodooCpl.exe, under the general tab, set the adapter the GPU you wish to use.
  6. Close the program and run the game.

Game hangs when loading

Analyze wait chain[5][6]
  1. Open Task Manager.
  2. Find DX2Main.exe on the list and expand it.
  3. Right-click on every child object that belongs to the process and click on "Go to details".
  4. In the Details tab, right-click on the highlighted element and click on "Analyse Wait Chain".
  5. If there are elements on the list, select them and kill the process.

Notes:

Most common programs causing issues are logitechg_discord.exe (Discord applet for Logitech Gaming Software),Setpoint.exe (program of Logitech) and nvcontainer.exe (part of Nvidia Experience).

Crash when installed in a Storage Space

The game will refuse to run when installed on a drive which is managed as a storage space on Windows 8 and later. Specifically, the content\DX2\Maps folder must not be on a Storage Space.
Install the game on a drive that is not a storage space[citation needed]

Mouse does not move in menu, inventory, etc.

Windows 10 (and earlier?) desktop scaling prevents mouse from moving.
Use Visible Upgrade.
Turn down dpi scaling from 150% to 149%. Might need reboot (Setting the compatibility option for the game to ignore desktop scaling does not solve this.)[7][8]

Vsync option not working on Windows10

Use dgVoodoo2
  1. Download dgvoodoo2.
  2. Copy D3D8.DLL from the \MS\x86\ folder to the game install directory.

Choppy camera movement

Set Sensitivity to 0 in the control settings

Heavy stuttering with Visible Upgrade

Enable multicore mode in Visible Upgrade's advanced settings
If the game begins crashing often, make sure to apply Large Address Aware, and change the CPU affinity for <path-to-game>\System\DeusEx2.exe to only 2 CPU cores, ideally the higher-numbered ones. If it still crashes, try setting the affinity to one core, but one of the higher-numbered cores. Since the game relaunches the executable every time it loads a level, the best way to set CPU affinity is to use a program like Process Hacker to save the CPU affinity settings for DeusEx2.exe for you, so you don't have to change it at every loading screen.

In-Game Debug/Cheat Menu

The game has an in-game debug menu that can be enabled to use cheats and other debug commands.
Enable debug menu
  1. If using the Visible Upgrade and Unified Texture Pack, open %PROGRAMDATA%\Deus Ex 2 Visible Upgrade\Installed Mods\Unified Texture Pack\System\DX2UI.ini. Otherwise, open <path-to-game>\System\DX2UI.ini. Find the [DebugMenu] section and replace it with the config below, then save the file (you may also want to set it to read-only to prevent the game from overwriting it):
    
    [DebugMenu]
    Active=ACTIVE
    Type=Menu
    Placement_X=RIGHT
    Placement_Y=BOTTOM
    PauseGame=False
    AutoSizeWidth=True

    Font=HUD_Inventory
    MenuDefinitionFile=DX2Menu.ini
    ListenForMouseClicks=True
    InputLayerName=DebugMenu
    
  2. If using the Visible Upgrade and Unified Texture Pack, create the file %PROGRAMDATA%\Deus Ex 2 Visible Upgrade\Installed Mods\Unified Texture Pack\System\DX2Menu.ini and open it. Otherwise, open <path-to-game>\System\DX2Menu.ini. Replace the contents of the file with the config below, making sure all the tabs remain tabs and are not replaced by spaces, then save the file (you may also want to set it to read-only to prevent the game from overwriting it):
    
    
    // DX2 User Menu Configuration File
    
    // "//" comments are acceptable; "/*" - "*/" comments are not.
    
    // To add a submenu: 
    //
    //		[Submenu string text]
    //		{
    //			// submenu contents go here
    //		}
    
    // To add a menu item that executes a console command:
    //
    //		<menu text string, CONSOLE COMMAND TEXT>
    
    // To add a "double menu item":
    //
    //		<menu text 1, CONSOLE COMMAND 1; menu text 2, CONSOLE COMMAND 2>
    
    // Other guidelines:
    // - Commands should always be in ALL CAPS.
    // - Always indent using TABS.
    // - You should separate commands menu text and the command with a COMMA and a SPACE.

  3. Launch the game and the Debug Menu should be available in the lower right corner.

Notes

The menu should blend in with the game's UI, displaying "Diagnostics" when closed.
To use the menu, pause the game, and click on the "Diagnostics" button, then click on whatever debug commands/categories you want to use. To close the menu, unpause the game, and press the Backspace key until the menu is replaced with the "Diagnostics" button.
You can use the debug menu to spawn items in-game, by doing the following:
  1. Create and open the file %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Deus Ex - Invisible War\inventoryfile.txt. If you prefer, you can use the debug menu's Cheats > Cheat Codes > SAVEINVENTORY command to autogenerate an example inventoryfile.txt for you.
  2. For each item you want to spawn, add a new line in the format CLASS=<itemname>, replacing <itemname> with the name of the item you want to spawn. You can use the same one multiple times to spawn multiple copies of the same item. A list of item names is below.[9]

  3. To spawn the items, select Cheats > Cheat Codes > LOADINVENTORY in the debug menu. You can also modify the inventoryfile.txt file while the game is running to spawn different items at different times. If spawned items aren't usable, try dropping them and picking them back up.
