Anti-aliasing (AA)[edit]

SMAA anti-aliasing is a lower cost solution for eliminating jaggies and gives better performance over MSAA. MSAA can severely reduce FPS on any system due to Deferred nature of the engine, while TAA reduces image clarity, introduces trails and smearing (and can disorientate some people).
SMAA via SweetFX
  1. Download custom SweetFX
  2. Extract archive contents to <path-to-game>\retail\ and replace DLL's with ones from "x64" folder
Also includes option to remove game's tint filter.
SMAA via ReShade
  1. Download custom ReShade preset
  2. Extract archive contents to <path-to-game>\retail\
Use if SweetFX causes crashes

Film grain[edit]

Issues unresolved[edit]

UI crunched together in Exclusive Fullscreen mode[edit]

Toggling Exclusive Fullscreen mode can mess up the UI on some aspect ratios.[21]

All dialog audio reduced to 1% volume after using inventory[edit]

Using the inventory permanently reduces all dialog sound to almost inaudible volume.[22]
Reload savegame to restore normal audio.

Combat music loops forever[edit]

After engaging in combat and then going back to the normal state, combat music keeps playing forever until the loading screen[23][24]
Quicksave and then Quickload restores the proper music

Issues fixed[edit]

Game Enters Infinite Loading After Leaving Golem City[edit]

Set the game to use half of the number of CPU cores.
  1. Launch the game.
  2. Start up Task Manager go to Details -> "Deus Ex" (Right Click) -> Set Affinity -> Select only half the number of CPUs on PC.[25]
Use the /High command line argument. This will increase the priority for the program to speed it up. It may help to also not be running anything else in the background. This can work with conjunction with other command line arguments. See the reference link for more information on different priority commands.[26]

Can not start Redeem.exe - api-ms-win-core-libraryloader-l1-2-0.dll wasn't found (Retail)[edit]

This error is caused by the DVD including d3d11.dll Windows 8.1 system library[27] never meant to be shipped in other OS.
Use fixed redeem applet[29]
  1. Download this file.
  2. Insert Disc 1 of the game.
  3. Start the downloaded program.

Notes

If there are still problems use the Support Page to request the Steam key.[28]

Game crashes when Jensen watches TV in Prague[edit]

The fix is to turn on exclusive fullscreen.
  1. In the settings dialog displayed when launching the game, turn on "Exclusive fullscreen".

Notes

"Exclusive fullscreen" appears to be the game's term for _true_ fullscreen, while the game's "Fullscreen" option is actually borderless windowed mode.

Blurry and semi-transparent faces[edit]

Due to how it presently works with facial meshes, tessellation can cause character faces to having a strange, "washed out" look to them which makes them look semi-transparent.
Disable tessellation[citation needed]

Notes

Disabling tessellation may be undesirable if you wish to keep certain environments from looking too angular.

Save games requiring DLC stop working if game is moved to / reinstalled on different drive[edit]

Fix can require re-download of several gigabytes (but not whole game).
Go to the game in your Steam library. Uncheck the DLC and wait for it to go greyed out. Check it again so that it will download/install the DLC.[30]

Game crashes when exiting the shooting range[edit]

Before entering the shooting range itself, empty your inventory, or at least remove the weapons from the inventory. Supposedly, just not interacting with the lockers at the shooting range instead of dropping the inventory works, too.[31]

Black bars in cutscenes and aspect ratio issues on TVs with 4K resolution[edit]

Follow this guide on Steam[citation needed]

Cutscene black bars/aspect ratio fix for 4K TVs

Shadows are rendered incorrectly on Linux[edit]
